20 September | Once the roadmap was released, available bookings for the rest of 2021 disappeared within hours. The same thing happened last year when that lockdown ended. Ultimately, I didn't manage to get caught up on bookings until March. I expect the same for this year too. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
19 September | The announced roadmap indicates an potential reopening date of 26 October. Also announced, clients will need to be vaccinated. While this wasn't isn't my decision to make, I do support it. Unfortunately, bookings before the reopening date will need to be rescheduled. Of course, those who wish to cancel their booking will have their deposit returned minus the standard card processing fee. Bookings not rescheduled in time will be automatically cancelled.
To celebrate the launch of the new site, I am giving away 5 Digital Gift Cards, each with a value of $250! The giveaway started on the 1st of September and ends on the 1st of December. The draw for the winners will occur soon after the end date and the 5 winners will be contact via SMS. Enter to Win
August 2021 | I am a cutting specialist. Success in this particular endeavour has leaned heavily on a conscious evolution of the skill set that my career relies upon. This continuing refinement is primarily influenced by the needs of the community I find myself working in. Currently, my practice is calibrated for individuals with challenging hair textures who prefer a natural, low-fuss and low up-keep lifestyle. I find that this offers a much-needed alternative for people whom the conventional salon industry does not readily support.
Most people who would be reading this article are well aware that curly, frizzy, and thicker textures of hair are challenging to live with and cut well. That said, many are likely unaware that fine and thin straight hair is also very difficult to cut well. It's true. Unlike curly hair, fine hair is considerably less forgiving to poor cutting skills, requiring finesse and control with a pair of scissors. This is one of the many reasons I have an affinity for working with any texture that people feel they struggle with.
July 2021 | Throughout my career, there has been considerable time spent analysing the entire process in an attempt to further refine every aspect of it. The goal here is to continue doing so until a time when this journey reaches its inevitable conclusion. For now, I wanted to type out a list of essential principles. Each statement directly contributes to client contentment and thus my continuing success. The list below, like everything else, will be revisited and amended over time.
1. As clients can often arrive nervous or anxious, the environment, communication, and service all need to be considered and supported.
2. Never approach or touch an anxious client until they are sufficiently relaxed and confident in the process. 3. Standing behind a seated client when having a consultation is not an effective way to have an equal and supportive conversation.
