Finding the right stylist–who not only understands the look you’re after–but actually has the expertise and precision skill set to pull it off, can be a challenge. Should a friend refer you to stylist Dan, consider yourself in very good hands.
Dan doesn’t spend his time at wild hair shows, convincing you the latest craze for electric blue hair extensions is something you should seriously consider. “To me it is more than just hair, it’s about an evolving relationship,” confides Dan, a trained stylist whose humility belies his extensive experience in the field.
“Initially when I meet a new client I ask her (or him) about their day to day lifestyle. Are you a busy mom who doesn’t have a lot of time to style your hair? Are you a minimalist who tones down your hair and makeup routine? Or just the opposite, a woman with a demanding work and social schedule where you have to always show up picture perfect,” asks Dan.
Dan will also query the uninitiated, “What kind of time and budget do you wish to allot every six to eight weeks to maintain the look you’re after?” All the while studying her eye color, the shape of her face and skin undertones to assess the color shade and cut that would flatter her best.
Dan prefers to steer clients away from trend driven styles, instead he shows them how to translate that trend into a timeless, elegant version that suits them perfectly. It’s a balanced approach that evolves just as their relationship does.
