Is your hair stylist really your part time therapist? Aren’t they all? Oh what a quirky and fun idea to address, with something so profound as concern about aging and mortality lurking under the surface. Watch and enjoy this video about “Hairapists” in an ultra pink salon, and note how the song itself grows on you!
When I got my first gray hair, my stylist took such good care of me… I realized that “hairapists” can and often do act as surrogate therapists and spiritual guides, lighting the way toward not only a new “do” but a new “you!” It struck me as really beautiful and worth celebrating. That’s what we tried to do in this video. — Katie Curley
