A few weeks ago I wanted to place a paper bag over my head...literally. You may think I exaggerate, but when people you know well notice your haircut and choose to say nothing (lying would be waaaay too hard) then you really know it's bad :)
Thankfully Patrick of Shep Studio in Provo had a last minute cancellation and I was able to squeeze myself in with a day's notice. Patrick came highly recommended so I thought it a safe choice...he did not disappoint. He had some real issues to deal with on my head, and I felt that in the end he presented me with the best-case scenario. And, at the end of our time together, I think I just might've convinced him to finally get his own email address :)
Sweet Amy, wife to talented Justin, was kind enough to meet me at the salon, with lunch in hand so we could hang out and chat sans kiddos. I must say Amy is one of the nicest people I know. Eating takeout together was a fun treat and I enjoyed the panini from Pizzeria 712 so very much. It's definitely the most delicious place to eat in Utah County (my sister-in-law Rachel swears by the butternut squash pizza btw).
One last thing, Shep (top right), owner of Shep Studio, was the favorite stylist to many-a-roommate-of-mine in college. It's great to see him in his own salon now...over ten years later. Locals may be interested to know that the firm who designed his fantastic space also designed Lunatic Fringe salons too.
