Ok it's time to talk hair for a few minutes. I have been getting my hair colored for years and have always had trouble finding someone who could deliver my vision. I can't tell you how many times I've come home from the salon and literally cried because it didn't turn out ANYTHING like what I described. We all know this story. I feel as though I have discussed this VERY scenario with many of my friends. Often times when I'd ask for something, the stylist would disagree with me and basically say they weren't going to do what I asked. Or they'd do a variation of it without consulting me so when I'd see the finished product, I'd be in shock.
Whether you live in the Charlotte area or elsewhere, I encourage you to find someone like Kara Redmond of Chroma salon. She is amazing and always delivers what I ask for. When I say jump, she asks how high? When I leave the salon, she reassures me that if I don't like it, she will fix it. She will make it how you want it. No questions asked. She listens to you and helps you to feel your best, setting her own ego aside. She also remembers not to blow dry my hair with a round brush thus avoiding the beauty queen look. You all know what I'm talking about. Who really wants their hair to look like that anyway??? I think a big part of what makes us a great fit is that we see eye to eye on trying new things. As you can see from her pictures, she has pulled off many styles and colors brilliantly. (At least in my opinion.) She's not afraid to go her something exciting and different and I like that. If you do live in my area and like your hair highlighted or colored, whether simple or unique, look up Kara Redmond. You will not be disappointed. I think we all know finding a good stylist is like finding that perfect pair of jeans. They're HARD to come by!
