Looking for a new hair stylist? How do you find the right one. The right one consists of getting the right cut, or color, or texture you're looking for. But it also consist of the right personalities; yours and the stylist's. Your sister's or friend's may be great for them but not for you... and vice versa. Find someone with hair like yours for starters and ask them who does their hair. Call that stylist and ask questions. If you're happy with the conversation, then try that stylist. The only true way for anyone to know if the stylist is right is to sit in the stylists chair themselves.
Check out what some of my clients have said of me:
I will be moving to a new studio on Battleground Ave. on or about April 23. More info to come...
I will be taking appt's at the Friendly Center Sola through April 15th.
My fee is a flat fee, and will remain so. I do not accept tips, but I will accept a gift at Christmas. My fee's are based on my years of experience, continuing education in all matters hair, my level of expertise, rent,
equipment cost, and product cost.

I use color lines by Rusk and Joico.
Normal processing on gray hair is anywhere from 35 to sometimes 60 minutes. Rusk in 10 will cover gray, and process in 10 minutes. Yes, you read that right: 10 minutes. Your gray can be gone in 10 minutes. Call today for your appointment.
Ok... lets talk color... a root touch up or base is less than 1" of regrowth. Going lighter, then it's half an inch of regrowth. Normal highlights, balayage, toners, etc... are done on virgin or professionally colored/lightened hair. Color will not lift color. If you have a dark hair color in your hair it cannot be lightened with hair color. It must be removed with bleach (aka; lightener.)
Now lets talk CORRECTIVE COLOR. If you have three or four or five different colors in your hair causing banding, stripes, dots, lines, patches, or anything else... to return it to one color or to make it look normal, this is corrective color. If you tried to lighten your hair, or do your own highlights, and it looks awful and you want a hair dresser to make it normal; this is corrective color. If you have box color in your hair and you have done it once, or twice, or three times, and/or you have put it all over your head every time causing excessively porous ends; this is corrective color. If you put box color in your hair a year ago, it is still on the midshaft and ends. This is corrective color.
Box color is a nightmare to remove from hair. It does not lift out the same as professional color and it does not lift the same as virgin hair. If you have used boxed color, always tell your stylist before they perform any chemical service on your hair.
The first man I worked for as a hair dresser told me of something which happened to him early in his career. He did a perm on a woman and she didn't tell him about the henna (a type of hair color) which was in her hair. Doing a perm involves wrapping hair around rods, applying a perm solution, and unwrapping various rods to check for full development of the perm so as not to over process the hair. After several rod checks, the rods started to fall off her head... with hair still attached. What the woman didn't know was that henna and perm don't play nicely together. As I understand it, she ended up with less than a half inch of hair left on her head.
I have never had something like this happen to me. What you just read is why something like this has never happened to me. Call it an over abundance of caution, or anything else you like. I communicate, and I make sure I know what is in your hair. I don't want this to happen to you. We hair dressers go to school many hours and do lots of continuing education. This is why we get paid to do this for a living. It takes an understanding of many facets of hairdressing, one of which is some chemistry; ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO HAIR COLOR. If you do it yourself, and it doesn't come out well, expect to pay for CORRECTIVE HAIR COLOR SERVICES from a stylist.
Box color: JUST SAY NO! The cost you'll pay to fix it, isn't worth any amount you think you'll save.
