New Year, new look, new you! I love a makeover. If you’re ready, here are the top three questions you need to answer before your makeover.
1. Thanks for bringing in the photos. What do you like or dislike about them?
Editorial styling is an art. People in magazines are made up to look good for the camera. Neither of us really has any idea what it took to get that volume/color/style. I love visual aids. They are a true expression of what you’d like me to do. We’ll talk about what you like about the photo and I’ll check your current length, the condition of your hair, the texture of your hair and make sure it’s a good match for your lifestyle before we start your makeover. We’ll walk through the haircut and I’ll talk you through any changes that I feel would better suit your features. Please be patient with my questions. Hair is my passion and I get very excited about it, I want you to be excited about it too!
2. How much effort are you willing to put into your hair?
If you’re a no fuss, no muss, person, thats okay, Most styles do need a little product – even Beachy Air Dried Waves require a little texturizing spray and a leave-in conditioner. Super straight styles need some heat from a blow dryer and tension from a brush. Ask me how to blow out your own hair. Do try to embrace your natural texture – it’s the path of least resistance. If you’re not afraid of styling tools, loose curls or flat ironing your hair can refresh any hair style. Platinum Blonde or fashion colors are beautiful but huge commitments of time and money, so if you want to go from dark brown to blonde or on the flip side, going from grey to dark brown be prepared to sit at the salon for a few hours and come back every three or four weeks for retouches.
3. What are you using at home?
Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner are going to best protect your new cut and/or color. Salon QUALITY products are just that. I’m going to use the best possible products on your hair so we achieve the best results, why wouldn’t you want that too? Clients ask me what is the difference? P&G (no offense) are going to use the least expensive stuff they can get in the highest quantities. It’s simple economics. I have the best quality products for a reasonable price, I have to buy them too! I highly recommend Alterna Haircare products and you can pick them up from Mira Bella.
So, when would you like to get together?
