You see this? It's my new haircut!

Sorry for the radio silence 'round these parts, I pinched a nerve in my back last week and then Jamie and I were in NYC to celebrate our joint 30th birthdays with a truly epic weekend.  I kicked it off with a haircut at Three Squares Studio in Chelsea with Jordan Blackmore.  My father-in-law knows Jordan and Andi, the salon owners who offered me a new 'do, and I was thrilled to accept their kind offer.

I was unsure what to expect when I headed to Chelsea on Friday morning, but I was very excited and slightly nervous.  Upon my arrival in the studio, I immediately relaxed.  The space is beautifully inviting; full of reclaimed wood, warm and interesting light fixtures, candles, books and an ever changing selection of art. I loved the fantastic chain suspended double sided mirror.



Before, with my mother-in-law Claudia
While I waited for Jordan to arrive, I flipped through his portfolio and was so starstruck when I saw all the beautiful celebrity clients he has worked with recently!  When he arrived with his sweet pup, he took a few minutes to talk me through the cut and put me at ease; he was super friendly and complimentary.  He told me I had beautiful, healthy hair. No more coarse hair complex here!
Consulting the curls
Marc and the pup
After a wash, condition and hydration mask, we chatted while he snipped and 90 minutes later, voila!  I love the lighter, less pyramidy result. If only I could have my hair diffused and curled every morning before work!  I need a live in glam fairy...

Jordan and I post cut.
After, if only it stayed like this forever! 
Post cut, my in laws, Andi and her father went for lunch and a brownie at the Chelsea Market.  All in all, a fantastic start to the weekend.  Super special thanks to my in laws (Hi Marc and Claudia) who made it possible, went to the salon with me and then served as my photographers all morning!  You guys are fantastic to me, thank you!  Readers, I hope you had great weekends, I'll be back tomorrow with more tales from New York City!

It looks great! I love how light and bouncy your hair feels after getting it cut (I have thick coarse hair too). I am also loving your orange top and necklace!

You look amazing! I always feel 100 times better after a good haircut. That salon looks really nice (and WAY out of my price range!).

Is that a French bulldog? Too cute! Oh, and happy birthday again!

The new haircut looks fantastic. It's fun to see it for the first time, no? A cut like that can definitely make one want to take care of the hair so it could stay like that for a long time...
