1940s Elegance

While we usually see lots of basic waves and simple ponytails, the catwalks at NYC Fashion Week are also perfect places to spot plenty of updo ideas to use on your bridal clients anytime! One amazingly glamorous look came from the Abed Mahfouz runway, courtesy of the UNITE team led by Nick Pagano. Nick and the team created an elegant, sophisticated French twist reminiscent of the 1940s. “It’s very red carpet,” he says. “It’s very glamorous, just like the clothes.” The team used UNITE Wicked Wax Pomade to give the hair a bit of body so it was easier to put up. Then, to give the hair a bit of shine and shimmer, they spritzed each model’s hair with Shina-Mist just before they hit the catwalk. This classic, flattering style is just the thing to complement any beautiful bridal gown this season.

What is the key to be a good Hairstylist

I'm a Hairstylist for 14 years.I have to work with different people every day.Not all clients are the same and not all can like me or like my work.Different people,different personality,different life style.Now,We have to know what they want on the first contact with them.Consultation is very important to know what they likes,wants and what is they life style for us to give the right haircut for them.
Clients ask for stars Haircut and Color but some time it is not the look for them so the best way for me is to tell them the style is close to the style they like and is good for them.
Good Haircut is when the clients can style it home and the hair look good..
To find a good Hairstylist and Colorist see the work first before you go or by recomandations is the best way.
