Q & A
K:Describe how your hair makes your feel
A: Vibrant, powerful, secure, joyous. My hair is such a big part of my identity, it makes me feel proud and happy and most importantly, it makes me feel thankfulness and gratitude.
K: Why did you want a haircut
A: I will always make an excuse to get a haircut from Kelsi! But this time, I needed a haircut for general reasons, my split ends were getting out of control, and also for transformative reasons. I needed to remember my true self to reconnect to my sense of power and purpose. Never underestimate the power of a haircut. I feel so much more centered and more vibrant after reconnecting with my scalp.
How does it feel to get your hair cut in nature & the experience when Kelsy cuts your hair?
There is something almost indescribable about getting your haircut in nature by Kelsy. It makes me think of all the transformations that nature goes through every minute of every day. The snake shedding its skin, the tides changing, the winds blowing. Transformation is nature. I often forget this movement in the world, the eb and flow. It is so easy to get caught up in the stationary. Getting my haircut by Kelsy in nature was a remembrance of the beauty of transformation and change, and most importantly allowing my self to shed my own skin and transform.
