Hair Plug

blog_beautyhairNo, I’m not talking about hair plugs, but I am talking about giving a shout out, a plug to my new favorite local hair colorist, Ginger Vaughn of L’Atelier on Pearl Alley in Downtown Santa Cruz. I approached Vaughn a few months ago at the recommendation of a colleague, and we discussed her touching up my roots in between my regular color sessions with my out-of-town stylist George Garcia, a Redken International Performing Artist and educator who teaches Redken color techniques around the world, works the New York runways during Fashion Week, and has tended to the tresses of people like Katy Perry, Rachel Zoe, and many other celebrities. Garcia is at the top of his game, and I needed someone locally who could manage my grey roots in between my regular six-week sessions with him. That meant this local colorist had to be extraordinary. And extraordinary is exactly what I got when I recently saw Vaughn and she matched my roots (which I had been unfortunately trying to fix myself) to the rest of my hair. She did a brilliant job color correcting my mistakes and matching my hair color. I plan to go to her every two weeks henceforth to cover up my grey and send me on my way. I’m giving her a whole-hearted hair “plug.”


Ginger Vaughn, L’Atelier, 423-4247, lateliersalon.com.

Altars of Remembrance, Forgiveness & Rapprochement

We’re in Scorpio now—things mysterious, ageless, hidden, sometimes scary. Friday is Halloween; Saturday, All Saints Day; Sunday, All Soul’s Day. Sunday morning at 2 a.m. (after midnight), Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks are turned back. Tuesday is the General Election. Our vote is our voice. Each vote matters. Applying freedom of choice—Libra’s teachings. It’s time to build Halloween, All Saints and All Souls altars—with marigolds, pumpkins, sugar skeletons, copal (incense), pomegranates, persimmons, candy corn and cookies, orange and black. It’s so Saturn (now in Scorpio). Saturn is the dweller on the threshold (like St. Peter at the gates of heaven). Saturn can look like a Halloween creature—a gargoyle—a fantastic dragon-like creature protecting sacred sites. The dweller (Saturn) stands at the door or threshold of sacred mysteries, wisdom temples, inner sanctums of churches, offering protection, scaring evil away. The last day of October and first two days of November, when veils between worlds thin and spirits roam about, are times of remembrance, forgiveness, reconciliation and rapprochement. These actions liberate us. At death, when reviewing our lives and the consequences of our actions if we have forgiven, then we are free, less encumbered with grief and sadness. We place forgiveness on our altars. Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s good to dress up as what we’re afraid of. Or whom we would mentor. Then we become one with them. Note to readers: by Thanksgiving I will need a place to live (with purpose). Please contact me if you know of a place where I can rest for awhile. Teach and build community. [email protected] I will be leaving my mother’s home for the last time.
