And Viva Portugal… but we’ll save that for another post.
Last night I attended my very first CitySearch Dictators event, hosted by the lovely Christine (thank youuu!). Fourteen of us met up for a glam gathering at the Vidal Sassoon Salon in the Back Bay for an evening of pampering and socializing. I have to admit, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, and had to give my occasionally-introverted self a pep talk while taking a lap around the block before entering the salon.
Upon actually arriving (gosh, I hope no one noticed my first walk-by), Julie whisked me off to a salon chair for a consultation. My hair is naturally very curly, so she suggested a few different options to bring some of the volume from the ends up to my crown. In other words: she advised me on how not to be a Triangle Head. Following the consultation, I received a luxe Keratase moisturizing treatment with Ross, a makeup application from Dani Wagener, and met up with Julie again for what may be the straightest, sleekest blowout of my life. She gave me some great tips. Can you people move into our condo? I am sure Nick and Clark won’t mind. I am excellent cook. And I do laundry. Please?
After being fabformed, I mingled with the other dictators and enjoyed a fresh, dill infused Karlsson’s Vodka cocktail. It was all very glamorous. Flossy, flossy.
I’d be remiss to write about our evening at Vidal Sassoon without mentioning the man himself. Vidal Sassoon recreated the bob in the early 1960’s, making it more exact, geometric, and angular. While I am not brave enough to have my locks chopped, I love this look.
Added bonus to the night: I ran into Talia at the salon. She and I transferred to BC at the same time, and she was always a friendly face on campus. It was great to see her. Oh, and the goody bags… Lord, the goody bags!
Not bad for a Wednesday, eh?

If you could test drive any hairstyle for a day, what would it be?
