When will we be free from the bad hair cut…

One of the biggest compliments I’ve gotten in my career is that I’m consistent. Although I wish the word “consistent” were frilly and exciting or grand, alas I love that consistent perfectly describes the service and quality that you will all get when you are sitting in my chair. Consistency means, to me, never having to fear your hair person is having a bad day and will hack your hair up.

With that said, consistency can challenging. My job isn’t only to do hair, it’s to love the purpose of beauty and deliver that love to each one of my clients. I take pride in developing  relationships with my clients so I can understand them,and the hair they need, better. I teach folks how to manage their hair in their busy lives. I show people you don’t have to sacrifice and ignore the outer you to be a better inner you. The two can, and should, live together in harmony. I know the ins and outs of hair so well I’ve cultivated and maintained consistency, there is a formula to being great at your job (any job), and It’s start by letting go of being a “know it all”.  The more you know the more people you can work with, the more you can work with the more people you can help, the more people you can help the better you and your bank account will feel. Yes I mentioned money, I’m not greedy, just truthful and realty based.

To help see if your stylist can be consistent, try finding a picture of a haircut that you’d be interested in.  Ask for the same haircut three visits in a row (make sure you bring the same picture each time). You being committed to one style for a longer period of time will help test your stylist ability to recreate a hair do you love. If by the end of the third haircut you feel like your hair person gets it, your in! You’ve found your mothership. If you’re feeling a bit underwhelmed and slightly disappointed you have my permission to find a new stylist.

 

Top 3 questioned I’m asked…

The top three questions I’m asked when someone finds out I’m a hairdresser, theses are my answers.

1. What would you do with my hair?

~ Are you looking for a change? Here’s my card give me a call and we can set up a consultation. What I’m really thinking, but won’t say… We are in Target, my screaming 3 year old is pulling at me and I’m not sure I brushed my teeth.

2. Are the expensive hair products really better?

~Yes, but it doesn’t mean they are the right products for you. Trial and error of hair products is an important process, but it does not need to cost you an arm and a leg. Here’s my card, email me your hair concerns and I’ll give you some suggestions, cause it’s Friday night and I’m two drinks in and hanging with my hubby (who probably is sick of all my beauty talk).

3. Who does your hair?

~ Erin Otte, here’s her card. I love her she does amazing work. This answer has no side comment the voice in my head never has anything to add when I’m asked this question.

I eat, breath, and sleep hair. Hair is always on my mind. My head is full of useful information that I share freely when I’m not distracted by my everyday life. I believe everyone can have great hair (maybe not the hair you dreamed of, but your own hair that is great).
