New Year, New You!

We all know the saying, “New Year, New Me.” Sure, it’s a little cliche, but I am someone who actually loves that saying. A new year is a fresh start in some ways. Some people find it silly people like to commit to something at the beginning of the year: the newfound zest of working out or the appeal of taking more time to relax, but I love them. People often look to the calendar, appointing certain days, months, or even the beginning of the new year to bring in big change, and I couldn’t agree more.

I can tell you one thing I’ve been doing nonstop since the clock changed to 2022: I have never had this amount of big hair transformations than I have this whole year than I have in these past few weeks of January 2022 than I did in all of 2022. Whether it has been all over color changes to major hair chops, I feel like I’ve seen it all. I am one-hundred-percent down with all of this as the “kids” would say, but what is causing all this momentum for change? I have some theories I’d like to share.


1. Covid-19

Yes, the dreaded “c-word”. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a lot of us to stay indoors, holding onto our strands, going crazy looking at our outgrowth, trying to wait out this crazy storm we’ve all been trying to wait out with no avail. Covid-19 has made us all a little bored, myself included in this. I have nowhere to go, nothing to see and yet I am itching to do something with my personal image - either slicing off more curls or dipping my head in vibrant purple and hoping for the best. (Thank God I know tons of really great stylists at Gordon Salon!)

I think a lot of people are feeling a bit more comfortable now with vaccines and booster shots available and accessible. It’s been a common phrase in my chair the past few months. “I haven’t cut my hair in two years!” Or “This is the first I’ve touched it in a few years.” Or my favorite, “I cut it myself because I couldn’t stand it anymore and I need help.” No problem. We are here at Gordon Salon to help you and your vision of your beautiful locks, your fantasy, if you please!
