First week back to work and it already feels like I’ve been home 2 weeks.
Anyone else feel as if this year is going by so slow yet Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away 😱. She may wander but she always comes back to her true colors
These fall color transformations are on 🔥. I am lovin’ the change everyone is wanting. “I went to Olivia and omg she is a hair genius! She knew exactly what I was going for. My hair has so much dimension now! She was very attentive and easy to talk to... I’ll definitely be making another appointment with her!” -Debra
One of my favorite compliments to receive is that I am easy to talk to, I feel good about myself and the service I provided when I hear that. Let’s be honest, it can be difficult to have different conversations with different types of personalities, don’t forget about being relatable and like able with everyone you meet. Think about it, if you do not like the conversations we’re trying to have or my personality and you are in my chair for 3-4 hours, it’s going to be a LONG appointment with that sorts of awkwardness 😆.
Thank God I am easy to talk to 😁🙃. 😆♥️💙 Today was magical 🥰 It’s 𝐓𝐈𝐌𝐄, it’s 𝐓𝐈𝐌𝐄, it’s 𝐓𝐈𝐌𝐄 For a very magical week.
I will be out of the salon October 31st till November 8th, the work phone will be off starting TONIGHT until the 7th.
In the meantime, how magically beautiful is this platinum blonde?! Bleach touch up every 4 weeks and her hair looks so healthy and bright🖤. “Olivia did a great job adding more dimension to my hair. I was WAY overdue for an appointment and she did a great job blending my color! I was a first time customer & I’d highly recommend to anyone looking for a new hair stylist. She’s nice, professional, & did amazing with my color. Loving my new hair!”
This client was referred to me from a local Rochester page, not only did she leave my chair with the color she waited three weeks for but we also had a wonderful first “date”.
Every first appointment is similar to a first date experience, I do my best to make a relaxing unforgettable date 😉. I was at DSW with the boys and Connor pointed there was Christmas music playing. I didn’t even notice however in my head I was definitely singing along 🤦🏼♀️.
Let’s be honest here, who’s putting their Christmas tree up November 1st? Some gorgeous purple hair for this beautiful fall Saturday.
Took about 5+ applications but I think it turned out beautifully perfect 🖤. @nicolerollinphotography and I made a last minute decision [Wednesday morning] to move up my family pictures from Sunday to Wednesday (yesterday) because the forecast was looking ugly for Sunday.
I quickly threw together Matt + Connor’s outfits, completed a search & rescue for Owen’s brand new never worn vest, highlighted and toned my hair and successfully dressed everyone, all while leaving 15 minutes earlier than scheduled to give the threenager nap.
I felt like queen of the world for completely all that before 3:00. It’s okay we all know tomorrow will not go planned or as smooth then 😆. 𝟷𝟶 𝙳𝙰𝚈𝚂, 🖐🏼🖐🏼 till departure to the sunshine state for a week!
I am 99% certain I am the most excited one in this house. The boys keep looking at me like I am crazy, ha jokes on you boys!
Anyone else desperately needing a vacay? I have a question... How often do you purchase shampoo and conditioner? Once a month? Every two months?
I bought an 8.5 oz bottle of olaplex no.4 shampoo and no.5 conditioner back in June for salon use, I wanted to try the on other clients before committing.
I see about 11-20 clients a week, most getting more than one shampoo during their service. I was most shocked that the 8.5 oz bottle lasted from mid June to mid October AND THIS WAS NOT FOR PERSONAL USE.
Even if you wash your hair everyday (which you definitely should not do), this product would still last you longer than ONE MONTH. Has everyone gotten their 🅟🅤🅜🅟🅚🅘🅝🅢?!
Every time I go to any store with Owen, 9 out of 10 times we’re leaving with another pumpkin to add to our collection.
We’re currently standing at 7 different pumpkins, a few mums and about 4 skeletons that have become Owens school day friends 😆. This project put a smile on my face yesterday, her request “warm toned balayage, like caramel.”
We instantly became best friends.
The first round of toner turned more brassy gold 🤢 and I didn’t fully notice till we were half through the blow dry. I immediately stopped and told her we needed to throw another toner on to cool the brass down, she didn’t notice the brass and thought it looked “good” until she saw the official finished product after toner number 2 and she instantly fell in love with the corrected color.
New client turned to forever client Trying real hard to see the glass as half full, while also being one hair strand away from going Britney Spears circa 2007.
Read a quote the other day, “Breathe, darling. 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫, not your whole story.”
When can we move onto the next chapter? 𝙳𝚎𝚙𝚝𝚑 + 𝙳𝚒𝚖𝚎𝚗𝚜𝚒𝚘𝚗 most requested look this season.
The blended look was gorgeous and sleek for an extended season but 𝟚𝟘𝟚𝟘 is a year full of changes, why not add your hair to mix as well. Let’s talk about 𝐃𝐫𝐲 𝐒𝐡𝐚𝗺𝐩𝗼𝗼
Dry shampoo is like deodorant. You use deodorant to prevent getting 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐲 + 𝐬𝐰𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐲 when your body is clean.
Well the same goes for dry shampoo. Use on clean hair to 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭 grease + oil.
Is your mind blown 🤯? Last week was a funk. I let my emotions, my concerns, my stress get me down and pull my focus away from the priorities. In certain circumstances that’s good but last week what unfolded was nothing but evil.
I lost my cool with the boys Thursday morning, I felt like my head was spinning and I could not gain control to focus my attention + time on one task. I yelled at the boys more than once because of my frustration for myself, no they weren’t innocent in the situation but they were also being little boys [if you have boys, you know what I mean]. During the car ride to meet my mom before heading to work, Connor apologized for upsetting me and took fault for what transpired at home. My heart shattered, I never want my children to feel like the problem to my frustration or bad mood for the day.
Life today is scary, confusing and frustrating. We are all walking a different path and experiencing different struggles. Let’s give each other a pat on the back and encourage each other for the struggles and stress we’ve overcome. Headlines for 𝕊𝔸𝕋𝕌ℝ𝔻𝔸𝕐 𝔸ℙℙ𝕆𝕀ℕ𝕋𝕄𝔼ℕ𝕋𝕊! 🅸🅲🅴 🅸🅲🅴 🅱︎🅰︎🅱︎🆈
I unplugged the last 3 days. It’s important for me (the business) to stay consistent with my posting on social media however it’s also important to give yourself a mental a break from the stress of social media.
Have you watched social dilemma? I strongly suggest watching it, especially parents of kids from elementary to high school.
Enough seriousness. Here’s to hoping everyone has a A++++ kind of week❕❕ “Olivia is SO funny! I am a new client and I had a great time chatting with her. My hair is AMAZING!!!! I love it so much. She spent a lot of time with me to make sure I got what I wanted. Best hair experience I have ever had. I never want to see anyone else.”
My client wrote this very sweet and thoughtful review on google less than 12 hours after her FIRST appointment with me. I felt so appreciated and loved by her kind words.
I dedicate so much of time and focus with each of my clients, they’re always telling me how much they love their hair and you can truly see the joy on their faces. However, to read about their experience and how happy they are because of you in a public review, well shucks I felt like I was the “it girl” 🤣😉! I have a sudden urge to paint pumpkins 🎃
Took the kids to spicers cider mill where they got to pick pumpkins. Owen + I were eyeballing these adorable white pumpkins, while Connor found the ʙɪɢɢᴇsᴛ pumpkin his little arms could barely hold. I agreed to let him get that pumpkin if he carried it to the stroller. 5 minutes later and many breaks he completed the task, it’s amazing what your kid will do with a bit determination. Now I have ɢɪᴀɴᴛ pumpkin on the front porch that he insistent on showing his class through zoom 🤦🏼♀️.
What’s your favorite painted pumpkin? Today’s rainy weather is a glimpse of what life will be like during Michigan’s winter season.

The closest thing to washing your hair without water 😮. A true dry cleanser that absorbs the oil + refreshes the hair with natural rice starch. Amika perk up is perfrct for braids and post workout styles.
💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛 I love posting transformation pictures, makes me so happy to see the difference side by side.
Also, this chick tried telling me we were coloring her dark brown at her appointment 🤦🏼♀️. We compromised, I gave her more dimension while still keeping that blonde.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all about changing the hair color, however over time you learn which clients are committed to a drastic change and which clients are more flaky on making drastic changes 😂. We had a wonderful weekend in Traverse city with friends + baby Remy. We visited 3 different wineries and 2 breweries but managed to get photos at one stop 🤦🏼♀️ 😂.
At least these photos look breathtaking 😍
Anyone ever been to Chateau Chantal? One of my top favorites! The Boys and fur babies are with the grandparents till Sunday, while Matt + I enjoy some wine. 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷

Full highlights with a combination of teasy lights; oligo blacklight lightener + olaplex ♥️
Toned with Redken shades eq 10VV+10T+10GI+[dash]10N+000
Olaplex no.7 for shine and heat protection & Amika un.done texture spray for the more tousled look. ✨Putting a cow in a elevator really raises the steaks 🥩 🐄
🤣🤣🤣🤣 ....... ....... ....... ....... ....... ...... ...... ....... ....... What does everyone think of this blonde blend? 👍🏼👎🏻
For the last year we’ve doing highlights with shadow root until recently when my sisters in pics) husband thought we wanted his honest opinion on her hair color. He doesn’t care for the “lived-in” rooty look [uh...🤨].
So we transitioned from shadow root to full foils, I am definitely digging the contrast. It’s okay if you fall apart sometimes
Tacos do and we still love them 🌮♥️.
A good ole life lesson for you today 😂 ✨ Queue insanity ✨
Matt’s in Utah or Idaho till Thursday for work; he’s told me a dozen times which state he’ll be in and I’ve forgotten a dozen times which state he said 🤣.
It gets better...
While he’s away missing his family in a king size bed, I will be maintaining principal + lunch lady status on Monday and Thursday but doing the hair gig on Tuesday and Wednesday, now throw in soccer mom for child 1 Monday night; as if that wasn’t enough I added baseball mom to the resume for child 1 & child 2 Wednesday night at 5:30 at TWO DIFFERENT FIELDS.
Friday can’t come soon enough 🍷 🍷 🍾 🍾 What Colors do you see? Red? Purple? Both?
Comment ♥️ if you see red 💜 if you see purple 🖤 if you see both 💫MOM-STER: What happens to mom after she counts to three. 💫
Owen is the reason there’s a definition for mom-ster. I asked Matt how Owen was for him on Tuesday when Connor was doing school all day, Matt said “he was good, played with blocks buy himself while I responded to work emails.” My experience today was VERY different from my husbands [of course]. Have you ever vacuumed with a toddler holding the vacuum handle the same exact time?
Thank god my kids don’t go to work with me 🤦🏼♀️🤣
