The highlights I am referring to my dear readers is hair highlights. But what I am really going to talk about is foot comfort!
Quite a stretch from highlights? Not really, you will soon see what I am talking about.
A few days ago, I went to my beauty salon to have my highlights “brightened”….they were beginning to look a bit faded …probably has nothing to do with all this Florida sunshine! 🙂 That is me below, with foil on my hair and taking pictures in the salon.
Many moons ago….far too many than I care to comment about…I had a weekly hair appointment. My stylist would wash, condition, cut, color, highlight and style my hair and other than the inconvenience of a weekly appointment…I really liked the attention to my “crowning glory”….and she would be standing the whole time tending to my hair needs.
Over the years, I decided I did not need to do the weekly visit, but I would still visit my stylist for cutting and highlighting.
And that is when I started to notice this phenomenon.
The salons are much the same…but there is definitely something different.
As I said, years ago on my weekly visits…Shirley, who was the best stylist I ever had…always wore a smock and comfortable shoes because she was on her feet all day long. The smock protected her clothing from flying hair, suds and color of her clients. She also wore flat shoes. They were stylish, but flat and ….well, comfortable.
I think I noticed it first when we lived in Seattle….I began to notice the stylists did not wear smocks even when cutting hair, and I particularly noticed the shoes of the stylists. They wore very high heels. They wore very stylish clothes and if they were coloring hair, they wore a small apron…which was promptly removed when their coloring process was over. The stylists were “styled” and there is certainly nothing wrong with that, other than those very high heels and …and I was amazed they were able to stand all day!
I did wear heels when I worked in an office…but I sat at a desk most of the time. I also had a pair of flats in my drawer that I kept for walking in and out of the building (long walk) or when I had to go down into the airplane hangar and walk for miles and miles. OK, slight exaggeration, but it was so much easier on my feet when I slipped on a pair of flats to do all that walking.
Which brings me back to the stylists. They are on their feet all day long.
I don’t know how they do it. But, I have to admit…high heels are sexy and make the leg look very long.
My dear readers….If you work on your feet all day long, do you wear high heels…. or did you when you were working?
Since this is black Friday and a big shopping day for many …(not me, I am an on-line person)….I wonder how many are dressing fashionable and wearing very high heels? 🙂
Oh, and my stylist is right up my alley….she and I are on the same page! Luv her!
