This mama finally got a haircut! After holding onto a gift card for over a year, I made the call to local salon Wil.O. With an appointment open on the morning I wanted, I hung up nervous but ready for some split-end help. Self-care activities are not my forté, but I was ready for some TLC, for sure!
Finally, the day was here. I walked into the beautiful, well lit, cozy salon and was offered tea, coffee, water… ooh, la, la. I felt like a queen! As someone who rarely takes time for themselves, sitting back in the chair and getting my hair washed almost made me fall asleep. I have not been so relaxed in a long time. But, the scary part came: cutting the mane I’d been growing for 2 years- the hair that was longer than it had been in over a decade.
Co-owner, Melanie, asked me what I wanted, sensing my hesitation and then gently took my tresses in her hands and went to work! The freshest aspect of my cut? My part is on the other side! I know that I can change it back, but it’s sort of giving my scalp a rest. I love it. Just a few inches off have given me a healthy look and the added layers give me some dimension.
As someone who doesn’t have time, and didn’t want to go too short (I need to pull it back for the summer and labor), Melanie really read what I wanted (a significant trim) and made me feel so comfortable about the inches I saw falling. Although getting a haircut is not high on my list of things to do (ever), I know that next time I want to give myself a treat, I will head down for a shampoo and blow out from the lovely Wil.O.
If you’re a Rhody resident, be sure to check them out in Pawtuxet Village- and stop by to see me, too!
I was not compensated for this review… just blown away by the great service and beautiful work!
