I am into building relationships. I am not a one time, on the fly, hairstylist. Every 4-6 weeks I hear stories of how your family is, how the job is going, the happy and sad moments of one's life. I take this all into consideration when I am consulting. What might be happening in one's life to want such a dramatic change.
During an appointment that was suppose to be another segment of a long process of color correction, my client suggested to just" cut it all off". Her hair grown out for years and years, well past the bra strap, gone. Normally this would set off "alarms," that emotionally there might have been a epic event that has set the motion to shed one's hair. We mourn, the hair is cut. We break up, the hair is cut. This was not the case. I was willing to take this journey with her because even though her hair was in good condition, a series of Elumen hair color was unable to be removed from her hair. Thus leaving her with very limited color options of expression.
I have watched her grow from a shy girl into an adventurous women. Admiring her youthful spirit, wanting to be free, I agreed. I was not sure how or what wave pattern would be released from her hair as we cut, so I took my time. She was the last client of the day, so there was no rushing the process. Taking it shorter, adjusting, sitting back and looking. I took me time to see what style wanted to evolve. A little shorter we would go again. It was 3 short styles until we settled on a final look. A textured pixie accented tips using Neuma styling pomade. It was a honor to be a part of such a beautiful transformation.
You are not your hair. Your hair is a compliment of your own personal style and feel. A personal expression.
