Ditching the Mom Bun at Lucy Pop Salon

January 20, 2017 in Beauty, Uncategorized - No Comments

Let me be real honest with y’all… I take the term “Mom Bun” to an entirely different level. Morning-Mom Bun, Afternoon-Mom Bun, Evening-Mom Bun, Sleeping-Mom Bun. It’s just second nature, you know? The last thing that I want is for my family to eat food with strands of my hair in it, or for it to get yanked on when Grayson is climbing all over me. For the last few months, I have been everything but “glam”. (My poor husband, am I right?) Being way overdue for a change, I decided to ditch the Mom Bun at Lucy Pop Salon!

LUCY POP SALON
Lucy Pop Salon is located in Nashville (Hillsboro Village, to be exact) inside of the cutest three-story house. The decor is inspired by Wednesday Addam’s style sense. Each room is a different color, I spent most of my time in the Pink and Purple Rooms, and each room is fitted with a chandelier. They offer cruelty-free products and environmentally friendly products like Kevin Murphy, Evo, and Eminence. They have also received recognition as one of the best salons in Nashville (and across the country!). Not only do they do hair, but they do makeup services as well.

The Experience

Walking in to Lucy Pop, I was immediately taken aback by the space, and the decor. It was super stylish and cozy. I was greeted with several smiling faces. Which, if you’ve ever been to the South, you’ll know is standard.

(I snagged this photo from their Facebook page, because I didn’t think to take any. Rookie mistake.)
My stylist was Suzanna, who I have had the pleasure of meeting before. New to Nashville, and new to Lucy Pop, she was like a breath of fresh air. She is so warm and friendly. We headed upstairs to the Pink Room, where we discussed the game plan for my hair. Afterwards, we headed downstairs to the Purple Room, where all of the color happens.
IMG_8169One weird thing I noticed about this room is that there are no mirrors! Okay, there is that one black mirror, but literally no one getting their hair done can see out of it.
At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about this. Once the room started to fill up, I realized the absolute genius behind it. Everyone is forced to look at the person in front of them who is also getting their hair colored. This is such an amazing way to mingle and make friends.

FullSizeRender (1)Suzanna offered me wine. At 10:50 AM. I’m not even going to lie like I didn’t have three glasses during the duration of my color process, because I totally did. This was a complete treat for me, such a great way to have a “Mommy Pamper Day”, hold the actual Pampers filled with crap that I normally deal with.

This process took a while because I have an obscene amount of hair. Everyone in the room was just mingling, laughing, and talking with one another. I pressured (not really) two other ladies into grabbing a glass of wine with me. Sometimes being a hot mess first thing in the morning is just enticing.

The Results

Let’s all just collectively scream together.

This is my dream hair. I am so, so over the moon pleased with it. Suzanna was able to give me exactly what I wanted and more. When she asked me how light I wanted to go, my exact words were “How light you got?” Ha!

Upstairs, on the third floor, they have a room specifically for “After” Photo Shoots! How fun is that? That is where these photos were taken.

I had such a fun day at Lucy Pop Salon, and I will continue recommending them as well as Suzanna over and over again!

While I can’t promise that the Mom Bun is gone forever, I’m definitely motivated to actually style my hair regularly now.

What is your favorite part of getting your hair done?

Mine is, hands down, when they’re washing your hair. Bonus points if they have longer nails and scratch your scalp for just a little while longer than they have to.

  • A Peek into Our Saturday Afternoon and Family Day at my husband’s job.⠀
⠀
This is a yearly event that they put on for all of the families and it’s amazing! Lots of rides, prizes, food, and fun treats. We had a blast. ⠀
⠀
I may have went overboard with the free burgers today. I’m a sucker for a really good burger off the grill. Anyone else? ⠀
⠀
Full Disclosure: My Ennegram 6 came out hard when Grayson wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel.⠀
⠀
I was almost hoping that 1. We could talk him out of it, or 2. My husband would be too tall to ride it with him. I was so nervous about how he would react. ⠀
What if he tried to get down?⠀
What if he was so scared and I wasn’t up there with him?⠀
⠀
But, I learned a lesson today. ⠀
I have to learn to trust my boy. He *knew* he wanted to ride it, and he loved it! ⠀
Slowly loosening my reigns on him. Reluctantly... 🤣🤣⠀

  • Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. I didn’t always openly share about my struggles over the years with my own mental health. I always steered the conversation towards how important it was for anyone struggling to reach out, ask for help, share their story, whatever they felt comfortable doing. Ending the Stigma.⠀
⠀
But me? Oh no, I was to embarrassed to admit that I was also struggling. ⠀
⠀
I never really noticed a change in my mental health until *after* I became a mother. Post-Partum (and situational—my husband and I were just in a bad place financially, in our marriage, etc) Depression really got the best of me after I gave birth to my son. I slept all the time, picked stupid fights with my husband, and at times just genuinely didn’t want to be alive. Thought that I was a horrible mother. Thankfully after struggling for what felt like forever, those feelings went away. ⠀
⠀
Going into my second pregnancy and remembering just how badly that PPD had gotten, spiraled me into a new feeling—anxiety. And that feeling hasn’t really gone away. ⠀
⠀
I have really really great days, more good than bad and I am so grateful for that. But there are days where I feel my overwhelm and anxiety physically crushing me. Being able to speak up about it, communicate my needs to my partner, *and* find support and solace in wonderful women who are going through the same has been my saving grace. ⠀
⠀
Sure, Instagram is often filled with really beautiful curated images—and don’t mistake my words here, I love and enjoy scrolling these beautiful feeds; but it’s also important to remember that it isn’t always beautiful and well planned all of the time. There are real people behind these beautiful photos. ⠀
⠀
Life can also be messy. Embrace the mess. ⠀
⠀
(Inspiration for this post today comes from two beautiful Moms that I follow and love, who consistently advocate for Mental Health Awareness- @thegarciadiaries and @arynhinton). ⠀
⠀
Scroll all the way through for a silly outtake of the first image. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Oh, Sawyer. Lol. ⠀

  • Do you have a house full of snackers? #AD Whether you have a toddler or a preschooler @beechnutfoods Toddler Snacks (their Fruity Oat Bars specifically) are some of our favorite Grab N Go snacks! They contain only 5 *REAL* Ingredients and no artificial preservatives (Whole Grain Oats, Raisins, Dates, Sunflower Oil, and Dried Strawberries or Bananas—depending on which you get). The kids absolutely love them, and I feel pretty great giving them these whenever they ask for one. 
I also love sneaking Beech-Nut​®​ Naturals purees into their food to make sure they’re getting enough servings of veggies a day too. 
What are your kid’s favorite snacks? •

  • Today is #NationalTacoDay 🌮🌮🌮
Are y’all celebrating? We had tacos for dinner a few nights ago, but I’m pretty sure we need to have them again. What’s your favorite kind of taco? And what’s your must have topping? I *love* and have to have cheese, raw onions, lettuce, avocado, salt and pepper and tapatio on my beef tacos. •

  • I missed National Son Day yesterday...that was my bad. I typically don’t realize it’s a “national ___ day” unless someone tells me. 😅😅 This kid loves so hard, feels things so big, and oftentimes frustrates the mess out of me. 
He’s at that age where he’s testing lots of boundaries and realizing he doesn’t want to do everything he’s told, he’s learning to use his voice and while I LOVE that it’s some times challenging for me. 
I’ve had days where I’m harder on him that I should be, and days where I feel like I’ve coddled him too much. 
Watching him grow into his personality and have likes and dislikes, and big strong opinions is amazing to watch. He’s funny, he’s goofy, he’s sensitive, he’s stubborn, and he’s oh so smart. He still loves cars and dinosaurs, and has taken up a love of baking. (Halloween Baking Championship is his favorite show). And even though he and I butt heads some times, I can’t even put into words the love that I feel for my first born. 
After all, like he tells me all the time “You made me in your tummy and grew me special!” 🥰🥰

  • I have the weirdest question y’all... My kids LOVE fruit, like, they’re obsessed. They eat some with almost every meal, they like it as a snack, etc etc. 
Mostly though, they love Summertime fruits like watermelon, strawberries, actually all of the berries really. 
As we get closer to Fall and Winter, I’ve found my strawberry selection at the grocery store is...just not great. 
So....what are some of your kid’s faves? (We get berries, bananas and apples WEEKLY. Grayson likes bananas and apples but Sawyer seems to only like strawberries. And we don’t do a ton of citrus because we’re mildly allergic to it when it touches our skin—though we do love it!)
