I would like to introduce Tracy Lafrenniere, Hair Stylists at Paulos Salon in Chicopee Ma.
Lauren and I first met Traci at CVS in Chicopee Ma.. We were their printing pictures from Lauren's first heart transplant, and Tracy was there printing pictures of some of her clients hair for her portfolio. Lauren and Traci started chatting, then Lauren found out Tracy was just beginning her career as a Hair Stylists. Lauren asked her about her hair, she wanted to have extensions placed in her hair. Not knowing Lauren, she agreed to come to our house to do Lauren hair. At that time Lauren just came out of the hospital from her heart transplant, so Lauren couldn't really sit in a salon for a lengthy period of time. From that day on, Traci has been doing Lauren's hair and has become a great friend .
Tracy Lafreniere is employed at Paulos Studio in Chicopee Ma. You can visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/paulossalon/ to see for yourself the absolute beautiful work Traci has done.
When we were preparing everything for our move into the hospital, Traci contacted Lauren and said "I want you to look fabulous, I'm coming over to take care of your hair". When Lauren told me Tracy was coming over to do her hair, all I thought was "I love this girl". reason being I know how busy she is. It's a girl thing, if your hair is looking great, then you feel great. Tracy gave her the that big smile on her face with confidence in her attitude. The best medication a girl can get.
After Tracy was done putting the highlights in Lauren's hair, she then gave Dean and myself a trim. I was so thrilled, because who knows when I would be able to get my hair done. And my husband Dean said "don't forget me". After trimming his hair Tracy showed him a new way to style it. A little up do for his bangs with gel. It looks great on him.
It turned into a family event.
We are so blessed to have so many people in our lives that will take the time to think of us during stressful events.
