When I started cutting hair in Seattle (back in the fun 80's).
My approach to cutting hair is to listen to your likes, dislikes and desires you have for your hair. If you do not know what you want you probably know what you don't like. I will offer my thoughts and recomendations as well. E-mail or bringing along pictures of styles always makes it more clear and is encouraged.

Fixing hair color that has become dull, damaged, brassy, rusty and harsh looking requires starting with the correct hair color in the beginning. Once the hair has become a color you do not want, fixing it requires considering the amount of damage already done to the hair to choose colors that not only fix hair color problems but also that do not damage it further.
Ombre' means Shade, Shaded and Shadow in French.
It is bascially hair color that gradually goes from one darker color on top to a lighter color on the ends.
Balayage is another French word (meaning Sweeping and Scanning) used in the hair world to describe hair that has had color applied freehand. So no foils or caps...painted on with a brush basically. Balayage is the most free form process of coloring. I often combine multiple techniques, like foiling and balayage when I am coloring.
Foiling, weaving and/or painting one or multiple colors, getting right down to the scalp, insuring the longest possible grow out time, is how I approach highlighting. Applying color using a paint brush, foil, cellophane or whatever will achieve the affect, which really is the point anyway. Whether you want a finely woven natural highlight/lowlight, a streaky more noticeable or a chunky dramatic look or a blend of different colors, I listen to what you want and use the best technique and product for the job.
I do a lot of permanents designed to add body and not a lot of curl these days. There are a lot more options with perms and in general they have become more reliable and actually smell better as well :)
Thermal Reconditioning* View the process
Thermal Reconditioning is a Japanese straightening process that makes wavy and curly hair permanently straight. Even with the weather we have in Seattle it remains straight! During this procedure your hair is reconditioned while also refining its texture. Thermal Reconditioned hair stays straight, silky, and smooth even in foggy and humid climates.
Thermal reconditioning your
hair is a time consuming process taking 3 or more hours to complete.
Clients interested in Thermal reconditioning should first call for
a consultation and evaluation or email
There are many great sources for wigs these days but many of them arrive way too thick. Usually the front of the wigs near the bangs and around the ears are the thickest. I have been working with wigs for years. Getting a wig to not look like a wig is definately an art. Wigs are usually constructed with too much hair so they look way too full, stiff and blocky. With proper cutting and thinning a wig, they can be made to look very natural. I am a wig stylist...I cut, texture, color and style wigs.
If you are looking for a wig maker I would recommend Anton of Anton's Hair
Company (Wig Makers Since 1952).
