Mommy Mobile Hairstylist
I've posted about hairstylist woes on here before, and have been so pleased with Frenchi's work over the past year. But, I have to admit, since she's moved salons, and since work and life keep getting busier, it's even harder for me to get out to see her - I have to arrange for a babysitter or for my husband to watch my son, often have to fight traffic to make the appt., etc. Sometimes, just like everything else these days, making and keeping an appointment with a hairstylist is more hassle than its worth for me, no matter how great of a haircut awaits.
My new solution: Susy, the Mommy Mobile Hairstylist! Susy Gallegos moved here from CA three months ago, and is already building quite a following with her fabulous concept: she brings all of her supplies, does cuts, colors and styles, all in the convenience of your own home. I LOVE this concept, and I tried it out for the first time last week. Susy has been a stylist for about 12 years, many for one of the top 10 salons in LA, and she not only came over to my house and cut my hair, but she talked about styles that would flatter my face shape more, talked about how she was styling it and showed me how (not that I am capable of doing any styling on my own whatsoever, but it was helpful!), and she was great with my son running around. He took to her right away, which can be rare. She's just a fun, friendly, happy presence who just happens to be a whiz with hair.
Her services are great for all busy moms, but especially if you're a new/nursing mom, since you don't have to leave your house, and she'll happily take breaks for you to nurse your baby, soothe a fussy baby, etc. Oh! And she's a mom herself! To one adorable 15-month-old son.
Give Susy a call at 310-902-0060, or email her at email@example.com and be sure to ask about the mommy discount :) I just love when moms come up with ways to use their talents to help other moms, don't you?
