Enjoy some hair tips!
Where do you work?
For the past 7 years, I’m proud to say, that I’m part of an awesome team at Taylor Reese Salon in Highland Park Il.
Why did you choose to do hair?
Growing up I was always the one asked to put toys together. Straight from the box I would start piece by piece and what I anticipated was the end result, which was a happy cousin with a new toy to play with. And that led to drawing pictures taking an architecture class to somehow doing hair! I always thought of myself as having a creative mind…picturing something and bringing it to pass like sculpting hair for an event! It is really art if you think about it. And the end result is a fabulous look with a happy client.
What’s your favorite hair type to work with?
I love working with long thick hair.
What is your favorite hair product?
Wow! What’s my favorite hair product? I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I’m not a big fan of sticking to one brand or a single type of hair product but I absolutely love healthy hair! So any types of serums, creams or hair protectants are what I would lean towards.
What is your must do for hair?
Maintain healthy ends! I don’t remember the last time a client left my chair saying they didn’t feel GREAT after seeing their hair getting cut. Getting a small trim every 2-3 months max is an absolute must. The hair looks lighter, healthier and has more shape and movement.
How do you want you clients hair to be when they arrive to get their hair done? (clean? dry? wet?) I guess it depends on the service they are getting. For photo shoots I prefer the hair clean and dry, for almost all hair cuts definitely wet.
Any hair secrets/tips you want to share?
Advice from a hair stylist? Accept what you’ve been given…whether long hair or short, thick or thin, black, gray or any color under the sun. We’re all different and also, all beautiful.
