German Village Neighborhood of Columbus

Today I feel like new woman! My curly and sometimes unruly tresses are a pretty dominant feature and one that I'm proud of. I love my hair (I haven't always) and enjoy a little friendly envy from friends and strangers in awe over the kinky mop. I love my hair so much that after a few bad hair salon experiences I now trust NO ONE to cut my precious curls. That is until I met Darren...

Wednesday afternoon I made a hair appointment with my friend Natalie's stylist that she's been seeing for 10 years. She has followed him around to every salon he's ever worked in so he must be good, right?! 

Darren's business, Headmaster Professional Hair Designers (Facebook), is now in German Village in Columbus and because I trust my best friend I paid him a visit for a much needed haircut. 

He worked my hair like magic and I can honestly say it was hands down the best hair cutting experience that I've ever had. He will be well worth my drive from Dayton to get my haircut right.

Before heading off to visit Darren, Natalie and I had lunch at The Old Mohawk and spent some time wandering around the brick paved streets of the historic German neighborhood.

The sweet potato tots are a must! For entrees I went with a non-traditional pulled pork quesadilla and Natalie had a delicious B.E.L.T. sandwich.

Some other GV highlights that we visited were: 
  • Pistacia Vera--get an almond croissant!
  • Schmidt's Fudge House--I skipped over the handmade chocolates because well-Esther Price. But they carry a few imported German candy brands and I walked away with a bar of my favorite chocolate which I discovered in Austria last summer. 
  • Jeni's Ice Cream--they have a cute little window next to The Brown Bag Delicatessen (another recommended place to eat)
