How to be original with long hair


“Originality is the vision and art, of seeing what is invisible to others”


Hi there my Friends, To be Original, wow this is hard today.  In this style I created a little surprise of ‘texture knots’ to add interest and yet remain consumer friendly.
Do you feel overwhelmed by all the imagery on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest?  I know I do, BUT I have become a good editor, setting my standards high.  Today an image has only a few seconds to grab our attention. But I think a great image evokes emotion, it make the person stop and dwell.  I believe when we stop and study an image it should come to life and evoke action, “I want to recreate this look”.  When I see an amazing style I file the image and then I will apply in a Viv version when the opportunity comes along.



My goal is to create “A  look the completes a person and does not compete”.   this is  magic.  Ok having said all of this what is most important of all?  An amazing consultation. What is the point of being Original if it does not fit the persons life style, fashion sensibility, budget, face shape, body type and hair texture.
How would you rate your consultations? Is there room for improvement?  FYI should you wish for me to come to your salon and do a training on Face shape and Consultation, please connect with Rebekah at listed address below.   I have just finished a video on The Art of Consultation, something you will not find on You Tube, it is for professionals eyes only.  Did you know that 60 to 70% of new clients do not return to the salon, and this statistic is from Top salons, I confess I was shocked by this fact, which was part of my motivation in making my consultation video.  I believe a great consultation is the gate keeper of attracting and retaining business.  Stay connected soon this video will be available for our members of
