My sweet friend Jessica came in yesterday wanting to richer up her blonde, so we used 2 shades of golden pearl and 1 pale blonde to get this result. We love it! She is currently living in Japan with her husband, who is in the Air Force, and I was so honored she included a hair appt with me during her visit home! She said it has been a little challenge to find a stylist there and even the language can be a barrier.
Here are some tips to finding a stylist in a new town!
1. Ask for a referral! Anyone you see that has hair very similar to the color and cut you want.
2. Bring in pictures. In my opinion, that is the best form of communication especially if there is a language barrier. Just be realistic about expectations! ie: if you have short blonde hair, don’t bring a pic of Kim K and expect it in one visit ;)
3. Ask your previous stylist if they would pass on your formula to your new stylist. I’ve done this for clients who have moved and had new ones bring them in.
4. Go with a name you recognize! Companies like Aveda or Bumble and Bumble go through rigorous training and education so you can rest easy your stylist knows what they are doing.
