One of the things that we learned during the two-week pause to flatten the curve that's still going on is...not to take things for granted because they can be stopped in an instant and you can do NOTHING about it.

We don't realize what we have until we don't have it anymore. One of the things that saddened me when things did finally open up was that my hair salon in the Oakdale Mall was no longer there.

I was able to find another local place that does a great job with my hair...and the conversation isn't bad either. If you have a place that takes good care of your hair, then today is the day to let them know about it.

National Hairstylist Appreciation Day

April 30th is National Hairstylist Appreciation Day and I'm sure they would appreciate hearing from you today. I wouldn't call my guy a hairstylist, he's more of a magician. The reason is that he asked me to "stop trimming my own hair because his scissors aren't magic wands."

He seems to pull the rabbit out of the hat and he makes me look good...and that's not easy. Maybe you aren't in need of a cut today, so stop in and show your appreciation by purchasing a gift card or two. You can keep them or if you know another hair-challenged (and I don't mean bald) person, give them one as a gift.

Remember a talented hairstylist, barber, or beautician not only makes you look good but feel good too.
