One of Sky’s absolute favorite things is to visit Eleanor at Embellish Salon for a hair cut.
We, well I say we but really Eleanor, landed on the most perfect style for Sky. It’s cute, easy to care for, and Sky loves all the compliments she gets! Sky has the marketing piece down pat telling anyone who’ll listen who cuts her hair, the salon name, and handing them a business card. I had to get cards because so many people ask us about her hair!
It’s always an adventure going to the salon with a 4 year old. I never know for sure what she’ll say or do, what color she’ll ask for in her hair, or what style she’ll tell Eleanor she wants. I love that Eleanor sits down with her and talks to her about her hair, just like with adult clients, before the scissors come out. And, her ability to do precise cutting on a moving target…crazy good!
I think every woman goes through hair stages, and inevitably there is a “I hate my hair” stage or two (or many) over the years. I’m thankful that Sky is already comfortable talking to Eleanor about her hair, and what she wants, and Eleanor is laying the groundwork talking to Sky about what to do with her hair, and how to work with it, not against it.
With girls (or anyone really) I don’t think you can start too early building confidence in themselves, how they look, and embracing what their genes gave them to work with. I hope Sky will always love her beautiful, curly, brown hair. But, if she doesn’t I know Eleanor will be there to work with her, and her hair.
Thank you Eleanor!
