This time at beijingkids, due to it being the “Innovative Education” issue, we decided to pamper a teacher instead of a mother. Teachers are the core of the Beijing school community and the reason kids want to come and learn. Teachers have the very hard job of dividing their attention over multiple kids and making sure their development is on point, and most importantly making sure that the kids are healthy and happy.
Jule Schimann moved from Germany three years ago with her husband to the exciting city of Tianjin. Schimann, who was a therapist, found a great job at House of Knowledge (HOK) working in the nursery with toddlers from one-and-a-half to three years old. Her husband works in Tianjin and Schimann works in Beijing, and together they divide and conquer. The couple spends time together on the weekends exploring both cities.
We meet at Go’s Vari Hair Boutique, the new work place of stylist Wendy Wang. The salon is luxurious and has a spacious feeling. Wang and Schimann have a meeting to see what will be the best look for Schimann and they agree on a short cut. Schimann never had a short hairstyle before, so she is quite excited; they also opt for some highlights making sure she stays brunette but adding a little oomph.
Following the makeover, Schimann was surprised at how great she looked with short hair. The kids in the classroom were stunned, and gazed at her with big eyes following this major style change. When she met her husband the following weekend at a restaurant, he was also speechless and said, “I can’t believe how good short hair can look.”
