Festival Braids with Sassoon Salon

Hair by: Lauren Shaffer | Sassoon Salon

You know when you’re BFF’s with your hair-stylist, and you’ll literally go anywhere to get that hair-fix?! I honestly look forward to my time in the chair (when I used to absolutely dread it!) Finding a stylist is similar to dating, really. It’s important to find someone you trust, understand & ultimately enjoy being with. They also have to understand your (sometimes) odd requests, and assist you whole-heartedly in the process.

As soon as I stepped into Northbrook’s Sassoon Salon, they not only made me comfortable, but relaxed! Everyone is so welcoming, and warm — the best feeling! Over the weekend, I had the wonderful pleasure of working with Top Stylist, Lauren Shaffer. (You’ll be seeing more of her later this week, so stay tuned). I wanted to create a fun braid for Randolph Street Fest (A fun Chicago street-festival). I conveyed the importance of an ‘attainable’ braid // I wanted my readers (you!) to feel like you could create yourself! How many times have you been on Pinterest looking for a fun hair-style, and thought to yourself, ‘there’s absolutely no way I could create that’? (Totally me!) Look no further! Lauren created something cute, fun & flirty — listening to my requests, and hitting a home-run in the process. We also wanted to create something that was messy-chic, undone & festival ready! You never want to look too ‘put-together‘ when it comes to outdoor street-fests, so this was the perfect look for me.

I find it important to let your stylist do the driving. I gave a general direction with the style, but ultimately left it up to Lauren — since she’s the expert. It’s not easy to give up control, but I find that it helps with a happy end-result. Also, it’s important to speak up. Talk together, and work together to achieve what you’re looking for. It’s a win/win! We also had a ton of fun in the process, and already exchanged numbers to hangout in the very near future!
