In keeping with our January theme of simplifying, Hector and I have been doubling down on this vibe with the clients that we share, who’ve come in requesting a big change.
When Joie came back to us after many months of living overseas, she was ready for a fresh start. She also knew that life may take her away again for an extended period, and this time she wanted to be prepared so that her hair could go the distance.
We all decided that we would do dramatic chop to get rid of her ends that endured a lot due to sun and salt water, and give her fine hair a complete blank canvas and match her natural color with the slightest hint of warmth to compliment her skin. The haircut was kept blunt with only a minimal amount of soft layers, which were then hand painted with gentle golden highlights for movement.
Classic, elegant, low-maintenance hair color has always been my thing. It’s the lane that’s felt right for me for over 20 years, and, it’s actually way harder than it looks. It requires a mastery of formulation, a knowledge of all types of hair textures and porosity, and the ability to practice restraint.
As much as I love seeing my clients, adopting this approach allows you longer stretches between hair appointments which saves money in the long run, and keeps your hair healthier over time. It also creates more space in your life to focus on other things that bring you joy, and to me, that’s the end game indeed.
Take good care, and see you soon, behind the chair.
