If you could give anyone a shag makeover, who would you love to get your hands on? I would kill to get my fingers in Sandra Oh’s incredible curls! I’d also really love to work with Ellen Pompeo.
What is the most important thing to you, when it comes to handling clients? Making them feel seen, heard, and at ease, while still maintaining my boundaries. Whether it be just validating their vision or making them feel totally taken care of by being completely in control, prepared and professional, but still real, warm and caring. I ask them a few questions to establish their boundaries or hard “no”s as far as length, shape and general vibe of the cut, then I take the wheel and keep cutting and carving until I feel like it’s perfect for them. I don’t stop after a certain number of steps are completed, I just keep going until I’m satisfied and I can see them start making that “mirror face”. It’s more sculptural than structural, if that makes sense. When it’s done we both feel it.
