Brenda and I chatted briefly before my visit to Color and Hair Connections and I told her how I was terribly dissatisfied with my hair. She also knew my dirty little secret... that it had been quite awhile since my hair saw a pair of scissors.
Brenda, the owner of Color and Hair Connections in the Kentlands, knew exactly what to do. She jumped right into action and not only provided the TLC that my hair was in desperate need of, but she also applied a great deal of "hair therapy". How did it get so bad? Initially, I gave it the "I'll get to it next week" and as weeks turned into months and those bled into nearly years, it got a bit out of control and the damage had been done. My split ends were no longer just "ends" and my hair color had all but grown out to a modified Balayage (not cute or presentable)... Even wearing my 'do curly couldn't camouflage the untamed, frizzy mess my hair had become.
However, Brenda didn't event flinch. After being a hair professional for more than two decades (13 of these years, a lead in her own Salon in the Kentlands), she was ready for anything. She recommended a cut that could be worn curly or straight, but still modern and easy to manage (how did she know? ;). I left feeling a lot lighter that day; both in hair and spirit. Sitting right there in that swivel chair at Color & Hair Connection, I knew I found my new home. The time in her salon brought me back to the days when getting your hair done was just as much of a social experience as it was a hair cut and that's what I missed. The best part about this salon is that because it is priced so reasonably, I don't have to miss out on quality hair care ever again!
Take it from me: Brenda and her team of stylists at Color and Hair Connections are in the business of saving lives; one strand of hair at a time. These ladies can accommodate all hair types with all of the latest styles; whether you are looking for hair maintenance or total transformation! So, next time you want a great style at an amazing price and that "at home" feel, call and schedule an appointment for yourself. And when you mention Montgomery County Housewives, you can give it a try for $10 off a cut or $20 off a color service through December 31, 2016.

For those of you that frequent the Montgomery County Housewives events (or have seen our live feeds from the events), you've seen my hair tied up in a frizzy ponytail or a haphazard bun on many of occasions; more than I would care to admit. I'm not exactly sure the culprit behind this frizz I've been experiencing as of late; whether it be product that is not agreeing with my curls or perhaps the inevitable signs of aging. Regardless of the cause, my 'blah' hair has left me perplexed and mildly frustrated.
In the busyness of day-to-day life, I let my hair take a backseat. But why? I should know better! My mother was a hair stylist since way back when they were called "hair dressers". I basically grew up in a swivel chair as a high chair. I was enthralled by watching her tend to one client after the next on any given Saturday as a little girl, but my appreciation for having my own hair styled peaked a little while later while I was in my teens. At that point, I was often a "hair model" [read: guinea pig] for the high end salon that my mother worked in. I couldn't begin to recount the range of product applied to my hair from perms and straighteners to highlights, lowlights, flat irons, curling irons and anything in-between. Fast forward to a bulging schedule and not having that place to call home... until now!
