Toni & Guy Hingham gifted me a gift card that covered part of the cost of this hair cut. All opinions are my own. All photos of the salon are by Melissa Ostrow

It might be is absolutely vain, but I’m way into my hair. Like most women, I feel irrationally defined by my hair style and I don’t take changing it lightly. While I never color my hair and the thought of doing so gives me heart palpitations, I do enjoy my classic hairstyle cycle. Every couple of years I cut it short, keep it that way for three to six months and then start growing it out for a couple of years. And so on and so forth.

Let’s now flash back to two weeks ago. My hair had made it halfway down my back and I felt like it looked blah on me. Very technical terminology will be used in this post, as you can tell. I went back and forth between cleaning it up but keeping it long and buzzing my head. I compromised with myself and landed on getting a lob with Toni & Guy Hingham.

I was headed to Derby Street for a blogger stroll with the Derby Street team and they graciously offered us a complimentary blow dry at Toni & Guy. Rather than a blow dry, I put the cost towards a hair cut with Sydney. I was a bit uneasy as you never know what will happen when you see a new stylist, but I am so happy with my decision. Sydney was professional, kind and did a great job on my hair … I love it!
