Hi babes. This week is dedicated to the mamas, whether you are one or you have one or you know one or you want to be one or you don’t want to be one, mamas deserve to be honored for more than just a day every year. Here at HTHG, we are celebrating the whole week:). I have a special post about transformation coming up on Mother’s Day, but until then, here are some musings from the past few weeks.
Firstly, a special mandala for the mamas, made with grasses and plants from the seashore.
I took a family trip to the Olympic Peninsula a few weeks back, and saw this great fence at a little hippie art studio at an Eco Village in Pt. Townsend. I called it my Color Inspiration for the week:)
I did some Macrame Braiding on this lovely Color Printed hair, to create an Alien Faux-bob. Check out our video on Instagram under the hashtag #macramebraid for a quick how-to.
Our new gallery of ColorPrint Wearable Art Hair Pieces is now stocked. Check it out and find your power hair clip-in.
My favorite Poppies are blooming at my neighbors house, just in time for Mother’s Day.
I had the pleasure of doing some hair color inspired by those very poppies. Thanks to my friends and hair clients who let me do art in their hair:)
One more Macrame Braid shot. I promise I am almost done with this Macrame Braid phase! And now that I have promised that, I realize making braid promises is never a good idea. The Macrame Braids have only just begun:)
Lastly, a Hair Brushing Ritual that is a lovely part of my self-care routine, and I want to share it with you.
This Hair Ritual can be done any time, but is especially potent on the Full Moon. I grabbed the ritual post from my Instagram on last months full moon.
Full Moon Hair Ritual✨???✨ The full Moon is a beautiful time to take a few minutes to let go of the old and make way for new, setting new intentions for the future. Self-Care rituals are a nice way to cultivate this practice. Here is one of my go-to rituals for the Full Moon✨✨✨ gather your hair brush and your favorite essential oils, (I love vetiver and frankincense oil for the full moon) find a quiet dark place to sit outside. Light a candle, and imagine you are growing roots down into the ground, connecting you to the earth. Imagine a circle of energy that surrounds you above and below, holding you safe and protected. Put a drop of oil on your brush, and begin to brush your hair, slowly and with care and intention, tuning into the feeling of it, the scent, and the sounds around you. As you brush your hair, think about what you want to let go of in your life✨✨✨✨Take some time…….Now stop brushing for a moment, and clear the hairs out of your brush, roll them between your hands, and let them go, into the breeze. (You can also bury them in the ground or burn them or throw them into moving water. Something elemental that allows you to let go of them or offer them to the earth) Say goodby to the things you are ready to part with, and make energetic room for new growth✨✨✨✨take some more time.✨✨✨✨Start to brush again, this time thinking about what you want to bring in, manifest, give to others, serve your world, summon and create. Go to bed with sweet hair and sweet dreams.
