Tom Zappala Haircutting Insights Seriously

Seriously

I’ve known for many years that this website gives the impression that I take cutting hair rather seriously. While many understand why this is, I felt it might be helpful to provide some additional perspective. Much of the reasoning has to do with one simple fact. I believe there is a great responsibility with being asked to cut someone else’s hair.

As a cutting specialist for individuals with challenging hair textures and situations, how I present online is essential. Many prospective clients arrive here with varying degrees of dissatisfaction from prior experiences getting a haircut. They are likely here hoping to discover something that could provide them with confidence before trying, yet again, to have another person take scissors to their head. For some, I offer their last hope for happiness.

‚ÄčTo that end, if the primary content of this site contained the same trite marketing copy or carefully curated photographs that are readily available out there, it really wouldn’t be helping my target demographic. It also wouldn’t match up with the principles of my practice. When it comes to the Insights articles, the same holds true. The last thing anyone visiting here needs to read is some frivolous clickbait post that offers no real value.

"Indeed, the continuing motivation for these published efforts, if not my entire career, is to offer a stark contrast to the dominant narrative and its unending stream of redundant content."

Indeed, the continuing motivation for these published efforts, if not my entire career, is to offer a stark contrast to the dominant narrative and its unending stream of redundant content. That all said, let’s make one point very clear. Despite the efforts to engage readers with well-considered information, I am still just some guy with scissors. Even with decades of experience and countless positive reviews, clients often arrive in the studio anxiously. Many have said they are excited and optimistic, but anytime someone is going to cut your hair for the first time, nerves are likely unsettled.

All of this is why I take cutting my client’s hair seriously. Balancing consistent and exceptional results while providing an emotionally supportive experience is a task that commands it. Aside from just taking this job seriously, I see it as a privilege to be trusted with something that has the potential to transform someone on multiple levels. A positive experience here can also provide something that transcends the haircut itself. It’s an opportunity to engage in a self-care service that offers lasting physical and emotional support.

Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter that I’ve successfully cut hair for over 30-years in multiple countries. Yes, that experience provides some comfort to clients, but it doesn’t mean I can or should ever lose focus. Quite the opposite is true. Every client who arrives here expects and deserves my best. Without a doubt, this is definitely something to take seriously.
