When the Quarentine hit, like so many others, I lost my job. I heard a story of people making the scrub bags that were needed for front line workers. So with my beginner sewing skills I started making scrub bags and donating them. Being a stylist, an "essential service" we were supposed to go back the very first phase on May 14. There was still so much unknown at that time and I was really uncomfortable with the lack of government direction and communication with my shop so I wasn't ready to go back to work. I just couldn't wrap my head around working at a very busy salon with six stylists, people coming and going and I don’t know how well others are cleaning and sanitizing, who is diligent, and we had such vague information from the government. Everything about it made me uncomfortable. So I thought maybe it was time to look for another job but no one would be hiring right now. I decided that this might be a great time to reinvent myself and have a hairstylist come to you. So I did a little research and reinvented myself. I am called Running With Scissors and I come to you and cut your hair in the convenience of your own home. Its been great for people who are nervous about going out, moms don’t have to find a sitter to have their hair done. It’s so convenient!
The reason I tell you about the scrub bags is because I really learned how to sew while making them. That was a skill I needed to make capes to be a mobile stylist, as everyone was sold out and back ordered. Without capes, I could not implement my new idea. I also made scrub bags that I take into each clients house with a clean cape, and I put all the dirty items in it when I leave!
I would love the opportunity to cut your hair. I am a born and raised Calgarian and I would love for more people to know this service is available.
