I finally broke down and made an appointment to take care of my 5 inch dark roots. I have highlights and while I realize there has to be frequent maintenance of this, I just HATE spending so much on my hair. So…I tend to get them redone when I am home in Michigan (where it’s about 90 times cheaper than NYC). The problem is, I only go home to Michigan about twice a year.

So…I decided to purchase a groupon for highlights and a haircut at a place I had never been to before. Sorry Oscar Blonde salon, but I cannot afford $350 a visit 😦


I made my appointment for this morning and on Saturday received a text confirmation…what is wrong with this picture?

Um…yes, that is my appointment, but my name is not Llysa…is that even a name? Do you pronounce the double L like  you do in Spanish. hmmmm? Not quite sure how the girl on the phone was that far off, but at least it was good for a laugh while working on a Saturday morning.

Anyway, the salon was decent enough. It was a short bus ride down second ave, and my stylist was super nice and cute and she did a great job with my color!


Also, the shampoo girl gave me THE BEST scalp massage- I was so relaxed I almost fell asleep.

Does your hair require a lot of maintenance?

  1. Looking good sexy lady! I get highlights too and I make it stretch to about every 3 months because I am cheap, lol. Glad you had a good experience with a new salon though! I have been to 3 different ones since moving to NJ last year but I think the 3rd one is the charm. 😉

    • I’m totally cheap too- but hair is just so ridiculously expensive to get done…I mean, seriously?!?! Glad you found a salon you like- I will try to keep bouncing around with Groupons since that seems to be the only way to make it affordable! haha
