So I need a haircut. Nothing fancy... probably just a few inches off the bottom and my bangs trimmed. It's probably longer than it's been my entire life, which I thought would be good for post-baby ponytails. But it's now too long to even consider wearing down. And I hope someday in the not-so-distant future I'll be able to be a sans-ponytail mama (and maybe also stop wearing sweats everyday, which for now I blame on my still healing incision).
Unfortunately, the stylist whom I love and has kept me well-coiffed for several years doesn't quite fit into the post-baby budget. At least not in the post-baby, mama's 60% maternity leave then 0% leave-of-absence budget. I know I should have considered this months ago, but I think I was living in denial while enjoying my remaining trips to my beloved stylist.
So I share this with you not to whine, but to ask for your advice. Can anyone recommend a talented Chicago stylist who might better fit into this mama's budget? For now I just need a cut, but ideally, this person could also do color down the road... I prefer they be in the city, but if there's something great in the burbs, please share. Thank you!
