All non essential businesses are closed. On Monday, I went for my last hair appointment before the quarantine. I received a phone call from the hair salon that they had to close at midnight tonight. When I arrived, the stylists were hard at work, getting as much as they could done before the close. It was actually a cool experience to be apart of. A woman said to the owner, can I buy you a bottle of wine? I want to do something for you.” The owner said, “No, just come back when this is over.” I was sad for the owner of the salon, but so glad to be there apart of this moment, where we are all pulling together and trying to do what we can for our small businesses.
When I sat in Misty’s chair she touched up my roots and made them darker, but still kept my light blonde ends. I wasn’t sure how long this was going to last. The government said two weeks, but just in class it was going to be longer. I decided to cut my hair short, and let it grow back out again, so it wouldn’t look ratty at the end of the quarantine. I am already looking forward to the end of the quarantine.
