She uses intense trigonometry to figure out the exact angle to cut your hair in order for it to lay correctly.
She uses scissors sharper than knives very closely to her hands and fingers with centimeters to spare moving them quicker than your eyes can follow.
She puts her body in odd positions to make sure she is level and can see each strand of hair she is moving, causing major damage to her body while she’s standing and bending for 12+ hours straight.
She buys pays to sharpen her shears and gets new shears yearly that cost anywhere between $50-$2,000 with no payback, just to make sure your hair isn’t damage from the tug of dullness.
“She just colors hair.”
She uses chemistry to create a special formula to work with your hair, that most likely won’t work with someone else’s.
She uses time that works against her, as two minutes too late will blow the cuticle in your hair and/ or fry it off.
She strategically places mixtures to blur lines and create a subtle blend and/or dimension.
She changes the combination for each client as mineral build up and pollution from water/environment/ products will react differently.
She changes the color of your hair without knowing exact genetics which play a huge part in reaction to chemicals.
She spends 3 hours moving her arms and bending her body into awkward positions to ensure perfection.
She copies an image from the internet that was a 12 hour session with 5 stylists working, by herself in 3 hours.
“She just plays with hair.”
She spends 50% of her work day using tools as hot as your oven.
She styles your hair exactly like that Pinterest picture that’s actually a wig.
She constantly breathes in fumes from hair products and she can’t tell you the last time she didn’t have a hair splinter.
She squeezes you in for a last minute style as she’s already been on her feet for 10 hours straight.
She has her arm above your head moving it back and fourth for an hour to blow dry it flat.
“She just does hair.”
She spends an hour doing a 4 year olds hair because she can’t sit still but it’s mommy’s wedding day. Mommy cries when she’s done because her daughter looks beautiful.
She spends 3 hours with a teenager who tells her every single person messes up their hair and she doubts this one will get it right. Suddenly brunette isn’t her color, she needs it back to blonde next week.
She colors a 35 year olds hair who has been using box color for 15 and didn’t tell her beforehand, so the chemicals reacted and caused it to smoke making this process 6 hours that could’ve been 2. She’s now being yelled at by her next client for running behind.
She wraps a 80 year olds hair in rollers for an hour to ensure she looks beautiful for her husbands funeral. Her daughter calls week later to thank you for making her mother feel beautiful.
She works when she’s sick because there is no calling off when you work with personal appointments.
She works when a family member is desperately ill in the hospital because her clients have gray showing and they have a meeting tomorrow.
She misses her best friends surprise birthday party because it’s prom day.
She works until 10pm because her clients hair reacted differently and nobody can figure out why.
She gets woken up by texts at 3am asking if she can get someone in the book soon.
She makes extremely close connections with her clients and spends all of her social energy on them.
She doesn’t get “vacation days” because people need her in order to feel beautiful.
She missed her child’s first soccer game because she was already scheduled two colors and cancelling would just be “silly.”
She doesn’t work 8-4 or 9-5, she works first client to last with no real promise if she can make it home for dinner tonight.
She also hasn’t eaten lunch the past three days because she’s had no time between clients.
She spends hours researching new techniques and finding educational classes to attend on her one day off.
Her life revolves around hair. Her brain constantly goes from math to science to social to psychology to client and back to math. She works hard physically, emotionally, mentally, psychologically. Every day. With no breaks and definitely no silence.
But I must remind you, she’s just a hairstylist. She just does hair.”
