Going to a new hair stylist is a lot like a first date.Â You have no idea what you are gonna get or if you will be able to fill the silence for 3 straight hours.Â Will she accept you despite the shampoo you use?Â So many dynamics take place in that hot seat during a hair session,Â you both secretly wonder at the end of the appointment if this will be the last time you sit in that chair…an awkward hug slash handshake and you are on your way wondering if you tipped properly.Â In this story, that did not take place…Katie and her hair stylist are good friends and see each other on a regular basis without awkward goodbyes…Being a regular in that chair is a lot like a really good therapy session where you spill everything about your dating life, latest celebrity gossip, and every detail about the latest and greatest.
It probably went a little something like this:Â Hair lady “So I know this guy that would be PERFECT for you… seriously you guys would hit it off!”
Thus started the beginning of numerous back and forth conversations that finally led to THE first blind date that would put Katie in a whole new kind of hot seat…a hot seat that would lead to much more than gorgeous hair, this one lead to finding her soul mate, and more than likely a hug rather than a handshake at the end of the date 🙂
I met Katie and Matt at a mutual friends’ 80’sÂ 30th birthday party so obviously I was looking my best.Â Frizzy side pony, HUGE shoulder pads, and of course a fanny pack.Â We hit it off and I was stoked to learn that her fiance, Matt is actually a friend from college!Â We had so much fun on our engagement session!Â Katie was so laid back despite the drizzle in the air!Â I thought for sure they were gonna cancel the session, but was stoked to find out that she was like, “bring it!” So naturally is was broughten! haha!
This is how all blind dates unfold right?
