Ren the hair guy

I've been having the same guy do my hair for about 4 1/2 years, his name is Ren. No, he's not gay (seriously, that's everyone's first question). I found him at the Taylor D'Shaw Salon (thanks for referring me there, Star!). I love the way he does my hair. I love the way my hair feels and moves when he's done it. He always gets the color perfect. I go in there and say "Um I was kinda thinking this or that kind of cut with some kind of color" and then I know I can trust him to get it right. I could go on and on. Aside from the hair thing, I just like Ren. It's like hanging out with one of my buddies (back in days when I had buddies).

Here is a BEFORE picture. Notice it's all pulled back, which is how I wore it for two weeks because it was so dried out and dead that it never looked good down.

Here is a DURING picture. Don't I look lovely with a foiled head and no make up?

We were being glamorous for this photo for sure.


Is is any wonder that when Nanos was four years old, he thought that Ren was a pirate?

Here is the AFTER shot. Except you can't see my pretty colors in this lighting. Well, whatever, you get the idea. Ren is a busy guy. He's got a new salon in Idaho called "The Electric Chair" and he and his brother just opened a new hair school, "The Shaw Institute". He also occasionally travels and does hair shows (which basically mean a hair convention where he cuts hair for an audience to teach techniques). Needless to say, he's had to drop many clients here in Utah. He calls it breaking up with them. I'm SO SO glad I haven't been dumped.





Ren, I know you aren't reading this, but you are awesome. Thanks for not breaking up with me, and always getting it right. My husband thinks I'm hotter thanks to you.

(This is kind of an AFTER picture except my hair is wet, so it doesn't look pretty yet.)

Michelle you are one hot mamma with four boys. I'm glad Ren hasn't dumped you either. It is because you are so nice & not a demanding person.

HOLY FREAKING HOTNESS! You look absolutely beautiful Michelle. Just like always, only somehow better.

I love that you love Ren so much, he seems wonderful- and I know that you adore what he does for your hair.

Love the hair! Isn't it nice to have a hairdresser you can trust! They are rare. Good thing he didn't dump you! :)

I am totally jealous that you have your own hair guy (who truly does a great job!) All I ever get is a trip to 'great clips' once a year! You look beautiful (and I love the ducks!)

Nice try Kandis. That's not all you get, it's all you're giving yourself. Pamper yourself! It's a little more money and a little more often (3-4 times a year) but TOTALLY worth it. TRY IT. You're going to love how refreshed it makes you feel, and you totally deserve it.

Jeff, Star and Taya said...

I meant to say I cant say enough good things about her. Does that makes sense? OH you know what I mean!
