It's been said that a woman's hair is her crowning glory. She can talk with her hair, and there are so many ways that a person can tell about her by simply looking at her hair. Most women cut their hair to different styles in attempt to enhance their looks. Some like their hair long and straight, while others like to wear their hair long with abundant curls or waves. There are others who go for the minimum, no fuss look and always have their hair cut short and simple. While others like to strike a balance between femininity and practicality and keep their hair at mid-length. And there are others who like to experiment on color and hiliting, not just with the length of cut with their hair. Unfortunately, not everyone can wear the same hairstyle and look good in it. Some hairstyles look great on some women and not so great on others. Many things can be taken into account as to why this is, but mostly it is cause the hairstyle does not flatter the face. The objective is to flatter your face and enhance your best features. Whether a hairstyle will look good on you or not depends on the shape of your face

Wow! Georgina's hair has not been professionally cut in 22 years. If you grew up in the 70's you might be wearing hair super long straight hair at the age of 53. Often times we find that women associate their hair length with youthfulness. 24 inches of all natural hair was removed from Georgina's head and was donated for making wigs for children with cancer. Normally a 10 inch length is required of all natural hair. Amazing! The most important style task was to create a style with little or no maintenance, to work with Georgina's early and demanding job. Hair was snipped off just below shoulders in 6 ponytail sections, maintaining all the useable length as possible. Hair was deeply parted to one side and a lighter, softer fringe and chin length framing layers were cut in for feminity. We added richness to her dark brunette hair with a top coat of our demi permanent PM Shines, no maintenance hair color. Georgina loves her new look. And what an amazing look for a less fortunate child.

Hair by Patti. When Taylor sat in my chair I wanted to make her features come to life. The cut I picked for her was trendy and fun. I think that is what everyone wants these days. The cut: The inverted bob is all the rage this season. Sleek sides and choppy bangs frame her face and even out the shape of her face. This cut can be worn straight or curly so it is not just for one client. The color: Taylor did not want to have to commit to any one color, nor does any client so I chose a peek-a-boo color placement so Taylor could show them off or have them blend. The color that we chose was a blue and green with a clear PM Shines top coat to give her natural color more pizzazz. The style: Taylor is a student and as all students she would choose to sleep in rather than spend hours styling her hair and this cut and color gives her that. To acheive this style start with Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, dry the hair and smooth with the smoothing iron and finish with Paul Mitchell Gloss Drops
