I’m not exactly a style maven, but I swear by a good haircut. Makes life much easier. I’ve had a surprising number of compliments on my hair recently, so I’m happy to introduce my new stylist, Angela Creamer.
I have less than fond memories of my too short, crooked bangs in grade school, thanks to my mom and great aunt’s home salon attempts. And as a teen, well let’s not go into the tears and wasted time with curling irons.
As an adult, I realized that it’s easier to embrace what I have and stop fighting nature. I’ve found a few talented stylists who could make my hair do what I wanted with no need for product or tools. I adored the late, great John Steinberg whom I relied on for years; I still miss him. He would listen to my ideas then set me straight on the reality of achieving them.
It’s been hit and miss finding someone I like since then, so I was excited to discover Angela. I stopped into Grateful Head on Dundas Street West after brunch one Saturday morning on the off chance that I could get a trim. She happened to have an opening, so I took a chance.
After a brief discussion, we decided on an updated look. I was thrilled with my first cut. I’ve been back twice and am even happier with the latest version. A little shorter and totally wash and wear; just my style.
If you’re looking for a stylist, I recommend Angela. She’s a kick-ass drummer too, so is ‘behind the chair’ Sunday to Thursday to better accommodate her late night weekend band gigs. Bonus for people who work Saturday. Perfect for anyone who works Saturdays. She’s now at Grateful Head‘s Roncesvalles salon, fortunately still within walking distance.
P.S. Grateful Head is an eco-friendly Green Circle Salon, working toward sustainable beauty.
