It seems like people are always writing in to me asking how they can find the best stylist/colorist for their hair. My answer below.

Fly to NYC and come to me!


..ask people with sexy hair!

Imagine you’re walking down the street when suddenly you spot someone with good hair. You’re staring, they look nervous. Before they start running away, you need to take the opportunity to ask them the most majestic of questions…”who does your hair?”. You find out, you make the call, you go to them.

Something to keep in mind before assaulting a stranger or friend for their stylist’s info. Most importantly, they should have similar hair texture and style to yours, or at least to what you’re going for. If you are a girl with Michelle Williams hair, asking a girl with Kardashian hair who she goes to might not get you very far. Just because someone has a great precision bob, it doesn’t mean that stylist will be right for someone with long Zooey hair. Get what I’m saying? Sure hope so!

With color, it’s the same. If you like low maintenance and natural, go to whoever the low maintenances and naturals go. If you’re a punky, go to whoever the punkies go to. Simple as that.

Word of mouth is the very best way to go, but you can always refer to magazines and the internet for a suggestion. The problem there is that you can’t always trust that it’s an honest review. Something to think about, my friends.

    I totally did that when I was in high school working at ross. A girl came in shopping and I couldn’t stop staring at her hair. So my super shy self approached her and next thing I know; the next 2 years she gave me some of the best hair cuts and colors of my life in her kitchen! Can’t believe that was 10 years ago. She moved and I’ve been sad ever since. :)

    Ohhh I totally wish I could come to NYC and see you! That would make my hair and my heart the happiest.

    I get asked a lot where I get my hairz cut. I guess I should take that as a compliment? Or maybe my stylist should? Ha!

    oh my gosh! as a hairstylist I hope that people do not base their decision on if the person is punky, low maintance etc….I do all of that. I would hate to be pigeon holed that way. :(

    I think that if you find someone with great hair, be sure to also ask how long they have been going to the stylist and if the stylist is consistent. Consistency is key. =)
