Ariel is Brave

MarKo from Marko’s Tips  had such a beautiful post on his blog last week. If you have an extra 2 minutes, please read Help Put A Smile On This Little Girls Face. » Marko’s Tips. In this post he writes from his heart about his friend’s dear god-daughter who has been battling cancer for years. Years. Ariel’s courage and bravery has touched people in over twenty countries.

Ariel has been in and out of the hospital, and the only thing that brings her complete joy is reading a Facebook page dedicated to her. Please visit her site Ariel Is Brave.  Like her page and take a picture of you holding up a sign with the word BRAVE, and I promise you from the bottom of my heart, you will make Ariel smile and make her day.

What comb

DIY detangler spray: 2 TBS of apple cider vinegar to a 16 ounce spray bottle filled with warm water. Shake before using, spray on wet hair then rinse out before combing.

So I was reading Marko’s Tips. One of his previous posts had me rethinking the way I treat my hair. After I wash my hair, I always brushed it wet.  Always. I am very low maintenance when it comes to my hair. It shows! I do not even blow dry it. Anyhoo.

MarKo stressed how important it was to take care of your hair when it is wet. He had some great points. Since I have read it, I totally do what he recommended. I never brush it when it is wet. Simple advice that will pay off big.

Thanks MarKo! Comb Cautiously » Marko’s Tips.

MarKo’s Tips

I am definitely not a wild child with my hair. I like it one way and that is pretty much it. Twelve years ago I met a colorist named MarKo who was working at the Prive Salon in Soho. I trusted him immediately, and my hair was always in the best shape when it was in his hands.  We were friends from the moment we met. I followed him to Sally Hershberger  Downtown located in the Meatpacking District in Manhattan. Now, he is bi-coastal and also works at the Sally Hershberger Salon Los Angeles.

About 8 years ago,  I received a free color as a gift with a national salon/spa.  I should have known that nothing is ever for free when I told her just a few highlights and I ended up having the entire roll of tin foil on my head. You know that moment when you know there is no turning back and you feel like you are sinking in quick sand? That is how I felt as I was in that chair. I wanted to cry, but I just sat there figuring out what my next step was when I was free from that place. I ended up looking like Gwen Stefani. Gwen Stefani is good at being Gwen Stefani. I am not so much. I called MarKo the second I got out of that chair and cried and pleaded with him to fix me up.  I will never forget the next morning going into the city for appointments for the store looking truly like a “rock star” and not in a good way. He met me after my appointments and just shook his head.  “Girl, you learned your lesson” was all that he said. Boy, did I ever.

Anyhoo, I read MarKo’s blog all the time. Recently, he had a post on etiquette when receiving a consultation from a colorist/stylist. He had great points. Check him out…..How To Receive A Consultation » Marko’s Tips.
