Welcome to BACK2MYROOTS B2MR regular postings of fresh new topic’s
If it’s a bad look done at home it’s sad. If it’s a bad look and not very well executed cut style or colour done professionally that’s even worse.
Why is it? how is some people can go out without looking in the mirror and being honest asking the question. Does this look good?
As stylist we need to remember that a client leaving the salon is our walking promotion.It’s a free walking bill board or the reason why your not getting recommended. Standards creative skill. consultation with clients about what will work!
below some examples of bad looks and why!
over processed candy cane hair bleached within an inch of it’s life shapeless hair cut looking like she stuck a finger in a electric socket! would you be proud of this creation?
When you see bad hair out in public do you ever think? What was going through the person mind who created that? Or do they know how bad that looks? Did they pay for that? I do it amazes me what stylist’s can do produce that is deemed acceptable. How low standards can get. What poor standards people will accept as looking good !
The same can be said for dress sense looking in the mirror and thinking maybe not! Or for me this hair do is wrong on so many levels. Its shape well lack of ! Its colour. In this case a stylist has taken three looks and tried to join them together very badly.
I’m not sure if the nape and the nasty line there .The crown and that flat bald like area . Or the weight line carried round to the sides and face. It’s just wrong on all levels.
Oh! Perfect a side view to show off what I am trying to point out! No flow. Disconnection it not an excuse for total shapeless mess. The crown area is two short and blunt . Cutting hair short does not create height! or volume. Texture does with shears or a razor and an understanding of weight shape and form, well that and styling.
This to me looks like she turned her head up side down and blasted it with a hairdryer. Sadly the shape or lack there of does allow for a lazy styling approach .The blonde is a nothing colour dull patchy leopard spotting caused by over layering coloured area’s. No thought has been given to shape look or colour not to mentions the clients features and dress sense or lack of.
This is all a classic example of not caring and low standards. In this instance. The stylist not only let’s the client down but also them selves for it is no advert to produce work like this.
Want more? Ok How about this look:
What does this say to you? Would you produce this ? Would you be proud to say this totally represents my work and who I am ? Hum not so much ha!
Again really bad choice of colours and look. Whether the client did this her self or paid for it .Well it’s a rat’s nest. Why do people go out looking like this. Because they really take very little time to think does this look good ! do I feel good! If your a stylist looking at this say to your self I am better than this ! If you are a client then say! From now on I will take time to make an effort to look and feel good.
In closing It is possible to see a look that works that is well done I think that it was the contrast of these three women all taken at the same location that set this topic in motion.
For me this is a well executed little cut. A really well done colour it work and suites the women. I hope this brings my point home that as stylist’s we have to consider so much not just a hair do. we have to work with and cater for all sorts and types!
But life style. The way the client looks. What she wears. Does she really care about appearance. Some women don’t getting a hair cut or colour is just a routine event,We have the skill and ability to make a difference to open their eye’s
Where does all this start With the image we present and the service the consultation the honest sound advise we offer. can you do you do this ? Do you really care? Don’t be any thing other than the very best you can. Never settle for second best as a Stylist or as a client.
We attract what we project and present that look that say’s this is me. Or as a stylist’s it says. This is what i can do for you. Standards never let them slip !!!! Mike B2MR
