Consultation -- making sure your hairdresser understands you
If you ask people what they expect when they visit their
hairdresser, they all say "one that listens to them and
understands their needs"
. Cutting hair is easy, making sure
we understand what our clients want and assessing if that is
really the best hairstyle for their face shape and lifestyle is
Like most professions, often the best hairdressers are not
the most creative or the best trained, but are good listeners
with great people skills.The other abilities are definitely just as
important, but it is the ability to understand and transform
your requirements to your hair that really counts.
Book or drop in for a consultation prior to an appointment
for something new or with someone new , these are normally
free of charge and will give some great ideas and a feel for the
hairdresser too .
• Take along some pictures use images to explain what you
want , bring as many as your require to get the look across,
find a hairdresser who takes the time to understand what
• Spending money on a quality cut from a reputable salon,
that values staff education and training will save you
money in the long run.
• Be specific , explain your fashion tastes and the amount of
time you spend on your hair each day.
• Do you have an area that annoys you? You know the piece
of hair that you fiddle with or touch most of the time. Can
something be done about it ?
• What are your bad habits? Do you like to tuck your hair
behind your ears? Will your new style accommodate this?
• Check out some of the looks that the salon is creating. If you
see one you like , don't be afraid to ask questions. Would it
work for you?
• Listen to your hairdresser's feedback about the hairstyle
you have selected. A skilled hairdresser knows what style
will make you look beautiful and what you should avoid. Be
prepared for alternatives, perhaps another style that suits
your face shape and lifestyle.

In recent times, the need to nurture and surround
ourselves with familiar things and enjoy home comforts
seems to have an increased priority.
The 'bling and sparkle' factor prevalent only a very short
time ago has subdued to an understated glamour that reflects
old world values and a return to nostalgia.
The desire to spend more time at home, entertaining,
cooking and renovating reflects this latest trend of being
more 'frugal' and creating a sense of place, at home.
People love to incorporate their past (or part of it) in their
home while maintaining a modern sensibility. Many pieces can
be reinvented in a modern way. Textures and natural materials,
all a by-product of the current eco-influence, set the platform for
subtle design that complements the familiarity of yesteryear.
Marilyn is currently undertaking an absorbing makeover
project where the delightful homeowners were simply
swamped with Middle Eastern rugs, precious artefacts, art and
furniture, reflecting their years abroad.
There was a very long list of jobs e.g. repaint that wall, move
that mirror, mount the market-find black and white batik,
regroup the artefacts, artwork and rugs, declutter, move
furniture, a new dining suite and relocate her office to a more
A few weeks later, the added touches of décor accents like
the Moroccan Anna Chandler tableware and the Cadmium
red inlayed vases really made the house sing. New bedside
lamps and bed furnishings have made over the main
bedroom.There's more to come - that kitchen bench top! The
life stories of the occupants are now stylishly collected with a
sense of place - their home.
