Last Friday I went to see our stylist and friend Stacy because my roots were growing out a little, and I really just felt like I was looking a tad too Valencia soccer mom. Stacy is the best because I can never really describe for her exactly the style I want, and yet she always gives me the perfect cut I didn’t even know I wanted. I usually just come in with a feeling or a mood, maybe a color idea, but not much more. This time I came in and said, “maybe a little darker, maybe bangs, not so soccer mommy.” I was already thinking about bangs and then as I sat in the salon waiting to see Stacy I saw these pictures of Zooey Deschanel in this month’s issue of In Style and that really sold me on the idea. I showed the photos to Stacy and told her what I was thinking and of course…
(that concerned look on my face has nothing to do with how I feel about the haircut and all to do with how hard it is to take a good picture of myself with my heavy camera without just shooting into a mirror)
I walked out with the perfect 1960s era Marianne Faithfull or Nico cut. I had no idea that it was exactly what I wanted.

Stacy is amazing! If you are in Valencia or willing to come to Valencia for a cut send me an email and I’ll give you her info.
