Hair party

     I went to a hair party a week ago and had a really great time.  One of my neighbors stopped the Fiance a few weeks ago while he was walking Bella to invite me to the hair party she was having.  The daughter of a friend of hers does hair and several times a year my neighbor hosts a hair party for her friends.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, lemme explain.  A hair party is where a stylist does hair, cut, color, style, in someone's home and charges WAY less than in a salon.  This is because she's able to pocket everything except for whatever she spends on supplies rather than having to give a cut to the salon.  (lol!)
     Anyway, so I went over to my neighbor's house and met some lovely ladies and had a great time.  We had food and wine and it was great.  Even though I was the youngest one there except for the hair stylist (Hi Bethany!) I really enjoyed the companionship.  I think I've been feeling starved for friendship and company and this really made me feel good.  Since we moved in August, other than work, I haven't had a chance or opportunity to be with people other than family or the Fiance.  I really need to find friends in my area, but with time and monetary constraints, it just hasn't been feasible.  Luckily for me I have a very sweet neighbor and hopefully will be able to go to more hair parties in the future.  I mean, how often do you get your hair washed in someone's kitchen sink and get to drink wine shortly thereafter?  
     I decided not to do anything super different with my hair.  Everything in my life is in limbo right now, so I opted to keep something constant.  I asked Bethany to trim the ends to make everything even and then to give me side swept bangs.  The truth is that she cut almost nothing off the ends so the length has stayed almost the same as before.  The bangs are really the only difference.  That and she added face framing layers to blend the bangs in.  She also blow dried and ironed my hair for me too.  All for $20.  It was quite the deal.  Have you ever been to a hair party?  How was your experience?
     This outfit is also a great example of how I've been dealing with the cold.  Here I layered a tank, a sleeveless top and a cardigan all to keep me warm.  Layering is one of my favorite ways to remix items and keep warm.  It also allows for me to wear a leopard print top to work and not look scandalous.
