My new purple hair, my new hairdresser, and my new favorite beauty salon...

Ingri and I @ Le Parlour front garden 
I can't hold down my smile. I can't hide my teeth anymore. Why? Well, for a few reasons... for a few good reasons... 

For starters, I have recently overcome some bad manic attacks. I feel lighter now. Another reason is that my hair is finally purple, or blue, and the responsible for it is Ingri Castagna, my new hairdresser. In truth, she is also partly responsible for my recovery. She's one of the owners of Le Parlour. 

Le Parlour is the name of this gorgeous beauty place that it took me too long to visit, but now I can say I am in love with it. Ingri's salon is located on Panazzolo neighborhood in Caxias do Sul city, in the  souhthermost state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The parlour is in a sweet pink cottage house with a cozy front yard where Ingri uses the sunlight to snap shots of her clients' hairdos. The decor is shabby chic with lilac walls and upside down tulip-like light fixtures. From the name to the wall arts, I like everything about it.

The first time I had my hair done by Ingri at Le Parlour, I had recently been hospitalized due to manic attacks. She kindly agreed to open her parlour exclusively to me on a Monday, when they usually close. Ingri heard all about my troubles and she lifted me up. She turned my hair black and blue, and that amused me. For this, I am forever thankful. Ingri and her business partner, Barbara, make sure their clients are listened and treated well. If you ever get to know this place, they will promptly offer you some cold bottled water, fresh brewed coffee, or even some chilled white wine, besides getting the best hairdo or that killer eyebrow. It is hard to resist. ~ 54-9994-6815

Barbara shaped my eyebrows painlessly, and Ingri does my hair like no other. Thanks a bunch, ladies!
It is impossible not to like this place...

My office is a "Horder's Shrine"

...and I am so proud of it! Ha.🎉🎉🎉
