If you ask people what they expect when
they visit their hairdresser, they all say
"One who listens to them and understands
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 often harder.
Like with most professions, often the best
hairdressers are not the most creative or the
best trained, but are good listeners with good
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 count.
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 you 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
you require to get the look across -- and find
a hairdresser who takes the time to
understand what you want.
• Spending money on a quality cut from a
reputable salon that values staff education
and training will save you money in the
• Be specific; explain your fashion tastes and
the amount of time you spend on your hair
• 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 hair 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 and
what is involved? And that includes the
styling tools and products needed to
maintain the style.
• Listen to the hairdresser's feedback about
the hairstyle you have selected. A skilled
stylist knows what look will compeiment
your best features. Be prepared for
alternatives and a different perspective
from what you are used to.
Redlands classical music lovers are in for a
rare treat when the rich acoustic sound of a
full 90-piece orchestra performs in the
concert hall at RPAC.
Queensland Youth Orchestra 2 take to the
stage on Saturday, July 31, to perform the
beautiful and emotionally evocative music of
Dvorak, Grieg and Smetana, three of the romantic
era's great composers, under the direction of
Russian conductor, Sergei V. Korschmin.
Mr Korschmin, who studied his art at the
Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory of Music, said
that working with QYO2, made up of some of
Queensland's most talented young
musicians,was a privilege and an honour.
"Every time I work with the orchestra, I learn
something new. Each performance is exciting and
these young musicians amaze me with their
capability and understanding of the music,"he said.
The program for the performance includes
Smetana's famous work, The Moldau from Ma
Vlast, which was written in the 1870s to showcase
the beauty the Moldau River that runs through
the composer's home town of Prague.
QYO2 will also perform the Symphonic Dances
Op. 64 by Norwegian composer, Grieg, who is
known as the "Chopin of the North"
Complementing this program is Dvorak's
Symphony No. 8 in G major, blending warmth,
optimism and drama in what some consider to be
the Czech composer's finest symphony.
"These pieces are a very rich emotional
journey, the music is soft, but never lacks in
strength or pride. This is pivotal music from the
Romantic era,"Mr Korschmin said.
QYO2 was established in 1968 and orchestra
members range in age from 12 to 23. QYO2 has
received high praise for its performances of
major orchestral repertoire.
