Hair by Aly Thayer 

A couple weeks ago I was feeling adventurous. So when Michael had a weekday off he took the baby for a few hours and I headed over to my girlfriend, Aly’s hair salon. I wanted to try something new – which if you know me is big because I have had the same haircut since I was eleven.
Aly cut off about four inches, balayage my hair, and to top it off- I got bangs. Let me just tell you, I LOVE it!! Aly is so talented. She was super honest about the limits of my hair as far as color went. Her priority was setting realistic expectations and keeping my hair healthy. She told me sometimes she gets clients in who want drastic color changes and she isn’t afraid to say no. In my opinion, that is so important! I have a relative who’s hairdresser just wanted to get paid. She didn’t look out for the hair’s best interest (okay that felt weird typing, but it’s real) and this relative’s hair started falling out!! They literally fried it after years of excessive dye jobs.
The salon, Salon West, was also precious. It had a totally Nashville feel. There was hardwood and exposed beams, which is such a trendy look right now. The “dry bar” was super hip and industrial looking. Overall it made me feel cool, but still totally welcomed. If you need your hair done, do yourself a favor and contact Aly! Check out her Instagram to see some of her latest hair wins (and cute belly bump pictures)! Or you can click here to drop by her website. She has a killer portfolio and some helpful hair tips on her blog! Let her know I sent you over too. I want her to know I’m bragging on her, she deserves it!
