If you’ll think back to recall my guest blogger from March, Erika, you’ll remember what a gem she is.
Yesterday we had an especially wonderful time cutting her hair for Locks of Love… for the second time!
Four years ago, we snapped this shot:
(…which makes me wonder why I’m growing my hair out… Man, I loved that style!)
Erika’s hair is healthy because she gets it trimmed periodically; additionally, that’s her natural color. In no way have I enhanced that blonde with my own giftedness.
Here’s her before:
Here we have what it looks like when I shape a donation with a future haircut in mind:

Being that she’s a good friend and brilliantly scheduled to be my last client of the day, I really put on the brakes and slowed the process down, obsessing over every strand while listening to Erika tell me about the news in her life.
Upon finishing, I spun her around to take in the new Erika. If there’s one thing that she’s good at, it’s expressing joy both verbally and through body language. It’s such a treat as a stylist to see a friend wiggle and dance in her chair!
Here’s the after:
Have a locks of lovely day!
