It’s easy to get caught up in the holiday buzz; buying presents, chasing sales, picking out the perfect outfits for all your outings—before you know it the season has passed and you haven’t even gotten to enjoy it. Hairstylists are innate caregivers, it’s not just your hair or your looks that we try to nurture, but your entire well-being. The Studio team cares about the WHOLE you, not just the “you” that sits in our chairs for your holiday hair service. We became stylists because we truly care about the well-being of others and finding beauty inside as well as on the outside — and we wish you true peace and happiness during this time.
Now is a time for nurturing relationships, be it family, friends or romantic. It’s also a great time to focus your energy on helping others. Enjoy the season for what it represents, not what you feel obligated to. Remember, your wellbeing matters all year-round.
Here are some ways you can focus on wellness during the next few months:
OCTOBER: REVEL IN THE SEASON
Get into the spirit by enjoying the season of harvest and transformation. October is a great time for trips to the farmer’s market, creating tasty treats and long nature walks to enjoy the cooler weather. Our favorite fall activity, is going to Michell Farms in Collins for the pumpkin patch and corn maze.
NOVEMBER: HELP CHANGE A LIFE
As the saying goes, “Give and it shall be given to you.” If you’re feeling stressed or experiencing some seasonal sadness, sometimes the best thing to do is reach out and help someone else. Contribute to enriching someone else’s life and we promise you will feel so much better. One idea is volunteering at a local homeless shelter. The Lighthouse ministry, located in Hattiesburg, welcomes all who wish to serve.
DECEMBER: SPEND QUALITY TIME
It’s not about the presents, the blowout sales or how much money you can spend on someone. What’s important about this time of year are the people you spend it with. Spend some quality time with those special people with a fun outing. We love Thomley’s Christmas Tree Farm & Gift Shop (where we get our salon’s tree every year), it’s such a fun holiday event and we’re always amazed at how many people do not know about this hidden jewel—pick out a live Christmas tree and make your very own blown glass ornament. It’s a great way to spend time with those you love.
