life in the Kearsarge area

what's happening in the Kearsarge/Lake Sunapee area of NH

Spring trends, and a new vet

It’s been a long winter, and I’m feeling tired. Sloppy. Outdated. I have a bumper sticker on my bulletin board – “I used to be cool” – and I am tempted to put it on the back of my car so everyone knows my state of mind. But, as a native New Hampshire resident, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to combat the winter weariness. One of my favorites: a new haircut.

I made an appointment to see Jessica at Hair Therapy in the Sawyer Brook Plaza on Route 10 in Grantham. I wanted something new, so I asked her what she has been seeing for styles this spring. She said that short to mid length hair is on trend. Cooler tones – ashy or gold highlights – help brighten the hair and face. S0, no red highlights, people; that was last fall’s trend. But one streak of vivid color is making its way into haircuts of all ages.

I wasn’t sure if I could pull off a purple streak, but I did opt for a darker hair color (goodbye warm red tones). I did cut off some length as well. And, since the gray is coming in anyway, it’s good to know that ash highlights are in. When this dark color grows out, I’ll be even more on trend. Who knew?

Oh, and I also learned that a veterinarian’s office will be opening behind Pizza Chef, which is really good news. I used to drive to Hanover with Dudley and now I drive to Sunapee with Ralph, but it will be so nice to drive 5 minutes to downtown Grantham. And with all the new labs in town (Liz, Nora, Brenda, to name a few), I’m sure I won’t be the only happy pet owner!
