Beauty Salon Talk Over Coffee.

I was downtown yesterday grabbing a drink at my favorite coffee shop, Roast & Toast, when I ran into Megan who was one of my friends from high school. {Side note: this java joint has become a staple of our town and a total tourist-stop in the summer, so I am getting in as many visits as possible before "they" get here. The first picture is an exterior shot of the front of the shop. Those are broken coffee cups and saucers around the entrance... So cool and clever!}
So we decided to sit down to catch up for a few minutes while enjoy the first few sips of our hot Roast & Toast Blend coffees. Megan had just come from her sister's new salon after getting her make-up done because Katlyn had a few open appointments that morning. While sitting in the chair, Katlyn told her about the new shipment of feather extensions that just arrived and how Megan should definitely get some. Which is true because they'd look outstanding in Megan's red hair. A half an hour later, she decided to do it and now has a whole new look... I was kind of jealous! Haha. Over the past few months, I have been looking into this "trend" but it was the first time I had seen it in person. I feel in love!

Here's where this story is going... Well after saying goodbye to Megan, a few minutes later I got a Facebook alert. It was her sister, Katlyn, sent me a message saying she'd love to do my feather extensions if I am ever interested. I couldn't help but feel like it was fate. I was meant to have feathers in my hair :) {A little extreme, I know. But I need more excuses to do this!} So I replied saying anytime this week after I get out of work at 4:30 pm would work great. So now I'm waiting to hear what day works best with her schedule. Also, I told her to choose which color would look best in my hair because since she has known me forever, she knows what will fit my personality as well as my style. Win-win! So I started scrolling pictures online trying to find a happy medium between not too extreme because I have full-time job, but enough color to make it pop. I love this idea:
I mentioned the idea to some of my co-workers {which are all male} and now they think I am insane, which makes me want to do it even more... Yeah, I am one of those people. So add "spite" to the pros list. Haha, but honestly I am so excited to get it done! I will post pictures once they are in...

Update: Okay its official... well as official as a hair appointment can be... Tomorrow at 5 p.m. I am scheduled to get my new feathers. I cannot wait to recite "Say I am a bird..." {yeah, thats a Notebook reference} over and over again to everyone I know. So be prepared!

I'm excited to see how it turns out for you! I have never seen them in person either, but you should go for it. Roast and Toast looks like the place to be :)

I want some too but my mom thinks I'm nuts. Maybe WHEN I visit we can sneak off and I can get it done and I want to go to this coffee place despite the fact I don't drink coffee
