Why do we stress out over making changes to our hair?
We see a lot of people who want to try something new with their hair but are afraid to make a change. A drastic difference in color or cut can be overwhelming, but even starting with something small can go a long way in enhancing the shape of your face or the color of your eyes and skin. Our hairstylists keep an open mind and truly listen to their clients, make sure they understand what their guests are looking for, and what they’re willing to do as far as maintenance and upkeep. This helps build important trusting relationships. Caroline and Tania are extremely thorough in their initial consultations; they are great listeners and their knowledge and versatility help them to guide guests along the right path to achieving their desired images.
With recent trends, people are embracing natural textures and looking to enhance the colors they have, so we’ve been doing a lot of ombre and balayage, which delivers a soft, sun-kissed look. Since balayage, micro weaving and lighteners don’t go all the way up to the roots, it’s a lot easier to maintain. This allows clients to experience a bit of a change without having to be super committed to upkeep or worry about hair damage.
Do you provide any bridal services?
Yes, we have stylists, including Tania Osinaga, who specialize in formal finishing. You want to stand out and look your best on your wedding day, and we are invested, from initial consultation and trial to the end of your special day, in making sure you do. Tania’s 14 years of experience in hairdressing enables her to help you sort through the various factors—season, dress style, classic look or a softer, more modern image—that go into choosing the right hairstyle for your occasion.
