Can We Talk? Why Honesty Is Important To Your Stylist And Your Hairstyle

I’m broaching a tricky subject today, but it’s one I know we all need to discuss. Almost every stylist I know has had a client suddenly disappear – no follow-up visits, no farewell conversation. While I recognize this is part of the business and sometimes just part of life, I do care about my clients and want them to be happy with my services. For this reason, I want to talk.


We all lose jobs, suffer illnesses, and deal with other financial hardships that can result in reduced salon visits. I understand this, but I struggle with clients who leave because they didn’t get the exact look they wanted.

You’re unhappy with your new cut or color? Let me know. I want you to be happy, so if we miscommunicated I want to talk about that. I’m human and struggle with assertiveness and confronting unpleasant conversations as much as anyone, but it makes me sad to think people are silently frustrated with their hair.

When you allow a stylist to alter your look, you are…

  1. Instilling trust in them, and
  2. Taking a chance – trying something new

That is an honor for us. Trust me, the person doing your hair understands these facts and wants you to leave the salon feeling fabulous. If you don’t, speak up.

Let’s talk about what’s not hitting your expected result. It is the only way to get to the right place. This doesn’t mean I or your stylist can immediately fix what you don’t like, but it means the client and the stylist gain a better understanding of what is missing or what can or cannot actually be achieved. This gives your stylist a chance to troubleshoot the issue and focus on solutions.

Moreover, it increases the relationship between client and stylist, and helps us work together to get you the style that will make you happy.

Before you leave a salon, never to return, consider discussing your issue with your stylist. You may have just opened the door to a long and healthy relationship with the person cutting and coloring your hair and a whole lot of good hair days.

Take care of you!



Ah-choo! Seasonal Allergies and Your Hair

Denver is currently in a rain-sunshine-rain weather pattern, and this wreaks havoc on my #allergies. If you’re suffering with watery eyes and an itchy nose, you know what hay fever feels like.  As a stylist, I think gels, pomades, and waxes are the optimal tools for style perfection, but during this Spring season you may need to take a different approach. Why? The more product in your hair, the greater the chance of pollen sticking to your style. Continue reading

Gray And Thinning Hair Solutions – Let Me Help

Man or woman, thinning hair is seldom received with positivity. After a lifetime of full locks, the slow or rapid reduction of hair can be jarring. You are not alone, and, your hairdresser has tips to make this change less daunting. Make an appointment and don’t be afraid to be honest about thinning hair and your feelings.

 If you live in the Denver area and want to talk it over, just let me know when you book the appointment. I’d like to plan for a little extra time, so we can kick around ideas. We stylists often have the talent and education to see how a new cut, color, gloss, or treatment may rejuvenate your look and help you enjoy or, at least, better accept the hair thinning you’re experiencing.

Of course, the other issue with aging hair is graying. Some people accept graying hair and transition easily. Most of us do not. Again, your stylist should be able to offer cuts, styles, highlighting, lowlighting, and other color options to help you gray on a timeline that’s more acceptable for you. I can cover gray, blend it, or enhance it. Let’s talk about your hair goals. I want you to love what you see in the mirror.

Why should students be the only ones who get excited about those first weeks of September?  You deserve a treat.


Shine On with a Little Shade

It’s summertime!! As a child, I spent hours in the sun and my blonde hair always became lighter. You probably have similar memories – jumping in pools, licking the dripping Popsicle off your arm, and the hot summer sun beating down on you. I’ll bet you noticed your hair became a lighter brown or a few blonde streaks showed up around the 4th of July.

Now that we’re grownups and spending hard-earned money on our hair color, summer isn’t quite as carefree for us. It doesn’t matter – we can still have fun.

Consider giving yourself a treat for Valentine’s  – a new cut or color?

I just completed this Rose Gold Ombre for a client: download_20170204_173535

Rose gold hair is HOT right now and flattering for many people, but if this isn’t your thing, let’s do something else.

No matter what, take good care of you and remember Valentine’s Day is a good reminder to love yourself.
