My usual hair and makeup routine takes 5 minutes, and while that’s appropriate for some of my life, as the CEO of a startup, I’m attending more and more networking and charitable events where I need to look a bit more polished. However as a single foster mom, I don’t have a lot of time, so when I heard about the ability to have a stylist come to me I was intrigued. The most recent event where I needed a bit of extra oomph for my hairstyle was pretty frustrating. I had a limited amount of time, and an 8-year old boy in town. I wasn’t able to communicate with the stylist in advance, and took the only available appointment at a local salon. While my foster son sat in the waiting area and played Angry Birds, I tried to tell the stylist what I wanted. Can you believe she’d never seen Mad Men? The end result wasn’t what I wanted but I had to get the 8-year old out of the salon.
Flash forward to my experience with Tousled.me. I was able to review the stylist, Stacie Thomas, online before the appointment, and send her a Pinterest board with what I wanted for hair and makeup. Best of all, she came to me. I didn’t need to bring a precocious 8-year old to a salon, or hire a babysitter to get my hair done. It took no time at all, and this time my hair was exactly what I wanted—a bouncy bob with curls, not to formal for a JDRF fundraising dinner at Seattle’s lovely Canlis.
It’s great to know that there’s an easier way to look great, and it was definitely a lot more relaxing to have the services in my sun-filled living room rather than a noisy salon. Summer’s here in Seattle, so I will probably revert back to my 5 minute hair and makeup routine for a while, but it’s great to know that Tousled is there when I need it.
