It’s about that time…#hairgoals check in
The first step to achieving your goals is always, well, setting said goals. The destination must be established in order to reach it. We find that setting and reaching goals can be just like driving. (If you made a face and said “huh?” bare with us.) In driving, you can set out along a path, but often there are curves along the way, and if you don’t adjust you’ll end up crashing far off course. Goals can be just the same. You set your goal, you start working towards it, anddd all of a sudden what you’ve been working towards is way over there in the distance and you’re not sure what happened. It’s challenging sometimes when we’re charging ahead to remember to check back in with our initial goals and evaluate whether we’re any closer to reaching them. You can drive 30 miles from point A to point C, but if your goal was to reach point B then you might need to check back in to your initial path to see where you made a wrong turn.
The cool thing about #hairgoals is that your stylist is like your GPS system—they are there to keep you from making a wrong turn. If you tell your stylist your goal is to grow out your hair (*cough* most of us here at Garnish), but then you get really excited about a new cute cut (*guilty*) your stylist is there to remind you that reaching your goal of achieving long hair again is going to be WORTH IT. It’s the same if your goal is to be platinum blonde, and by your third lightening session you’re ready to give up—your stylist will talk you through the directions once more, and ensure the path you’ve chosen to reach your goals is still the smoothest path for you. Reaching goals can be a long process and can require a lot of work, but that just makes reaching those goals that much more satisfying.
Sometimes, we start out along a certain path and realize halfway through that maybe we were following the directions, but we just don’t like where we ended up. That’s okay, too. Making adjustments is part of goal setting and is often vital to reaching goals. Maybe in January, you did want to be platinum blonde, but somewhere along the way you fell in love with the caramel color your hair is currently. AWESOME. Readjust. Write a new goal. Even if that goal is: “Maintain my current AMAZE color that I’m in love with.” Maintenance can be a goal of its own.
If you’re not already familiar with our #hairgoals form that we introduced in January, we invite you to read all about it below and then fill it out for yourself. And if you DID fill out a #hairgoals form in January or anytime since, we’re almost halfway through the year (*gasp* I know), so it’s the perfect time for you to reevaluate your goals and maybe make some new ones.

Here is what #hairgoals at Garnish is all about
Achieve your #hairgoals with Garnish
You may have heard the saying, “Invest in your hair—it’s the accessory you wear every day.” And you’ve probably experienced that powerful feeling of “I can take on the world” when you’re having that better than ever kickass hair day. So what happens if it’s a crucial part of your daily look and can change your entire attitude? It only makes sense to invest in making your #hairgoals a reality.
Here at Garnish we specialize in transformations. Transformations, to us, encompass all the wonderful things! It can be as simple as the perfect haircut to enhance your face shape and revamp your style, or complete makeovers involving coloring, extensions, and more.
Have you ever seen a celeb on t.v. or in a magazine and thought, “Oh my gawd I love her hair”? What about the person you passed in the grocery store and thought, “Her hair looks amazing”? Then you already have #hairgoals whether you knew it or not.
Our focus in 2017 is to help you discover your #hairgoals, and then set you on the path to achieving said hair dreams. To facilitate this focus, the Garnish team developed a cool new tool to break it down and make it super easy to reflect on and detail your goals. You will be able to download this fun and fast #hairgoals form and bring it in to share with your stylist or you can ask the front desk team for a copy when you arrive for your visit.
#hairgoals can encompass cut, color, length, style, and texture. Some of our most common transformational services include extensions, which come in a variety of methods to address varying hair needs—color services, including color corrections, balayage, blonding, and creative coloring—and treatments, such as our GK Keratin Smoothing Treatments, American Wave, and relaxers. Our artists also focus on providing you with the knowledge and ability to care for your hair at home (a vital part of making #hairgoals a reality), along with empowering you to be able to recreate the style component of your #hairgoals yourself. This includes prescribing the products that will best address your hair needs, along with educating you on the steps to take to achieve your ideal style.
January is always a month of reflecting on what you hope to achieve in the next year. Make your #hairgoals a priority and allow Garnish to help you become the best version of you in 2017.
