The Hairdresser's Nightmare...A client comes in and says: "If you could do anything with my hair what would you do with it?"
Our job as hairdressers is to make you love your hair. So let's talk about it! I have come up with this straightforward, no-nonsense approach, which is composed of two parts.
The first part contains questions you need to ask yourself, and the second part contains questions that I will ask you at your Complimentary Consultation.
I'm sure that once we have determined what your haircolor is now. I can help you select the best type of haircolor to use. Together we can decide what look is suitable for your lifestyle. I will teach you to re-create it at home, and advise you how much time and money it will take to maintain it.
We all want "The Best Look" for our features, but we have to remember is that even if you are lucky enough to achieve it, would you wear it for the rest of your life? Does this mean that's it!? "Even if it is not the "right" look for you, you are right for trying. Be bold!" - Andrew DiSimone
What about change and trying different things? When thinking of change, please try to keep an open mind. "Remember talking about change and changing are two different things." - Andrew DiSimone
