Hi all! I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself to those who don't know what this mobile salon craziness is all about!! I'm basically just a mom of two epic boys, a nomadic hairstylist and graphic designer. Raised in the midwest I followed my heart out to Colorado to live in the mountains and help my kids. I have been doing hair for over 20 years now and the whole idea around my mobile salon is to meet the needs of kids and adults that have sensory sensitivities and their families.. inspired by my youngest son who has Fragile X Syndrome and Autism and the fact that it's impossible to go anywhere without looking like a hot mess!! 😂💚(More info here.. www.fragilex.org )
I have over 13 years of personal experience in dealing with children with all kinds of superpowers like Cognitive Differences, Autism, Fragile X, PANDAS, sensory processing issues, ADD, ADHD, feeding issues, impulsive and elopement behaviors.. you name it! I'm certain Target has footage of my son tackling me to the floor in the doorway to get out 😂😜😂 That was quite a day! And more recently my oldest son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.. so I got your BG and life saving snacks covered too ;) I recently told my best friend that I had to have faced and learned all of this for a reason and I KNOW that reason is so I could gain the patience, understanding and knowledge to help others that need a hand, haircut or even a shoulder to cry on. So I got a 1976 Red Dale camper to turn into a sensor friendly salon to do just that! Hopefully I will be able to visit some nursing homes as well and my clients/friends going through chemo will now have a completely private cozy place to come face the side effects as I walk them through the process of loss and regrowth ❤ This camper is a step towards a greater dream that I am working towards that will hopefully have a huge impact on the community that I will tell you more about in the near future. You will notice my love of nature off the bat and I will always encourage you to get your family out in nature for the ultimate sensory experiences and to bond with your superheros. A sensory friendly salon goes much farther than decor or the music being played.. it's about cutting someone's hair on the floor if you have too or bailing on the camper and going on a 15 minute nature walk in the middle of a haircut because its just to much. It's not about getting rich and there won't be time limits and extra charges for guests that really struggle so my booking will be unique to say the least!!!
SO PLEASE HANG IN THERE WHILE I GET EVERYTHING UP AND RUNNING.
AS ALWAYS THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT AND LOVE!
I COULDN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!!
