Most of the hair advice you read here comes from our resident stylist and educator, Jen Bennett. She’s been with us for almost eight years and has been making much of Seattle look good for a lot longer. Since we trust her more than almost anyone with our hair, we’re letting her take the reins, well, keyboard.
Using product doesn't make you high maintenance.
—Henry David Thoreau... we think
For many, the thought of using product is a major turn-off—I get it. As a stylist, I am minimalist when it comes to product use myself. However, we often want our hair to do things that it just won’t do without product. Obviously, chopping off a few inches will take care of brittle ends, but a dry scalp or flyaways are issues that only product can solve.
I have fine, flat hair and I need all of the volume I can get. I use Clay Spray at my roots when I blow dry, and on greasy, second-day hair I use dry shampoo. Everyone has something they’d like to change, so my goal is always to determine my client’s hair priorities. Here are a few common product tips I recommend to clients.
Over time, I help my client perfect their style. We work together to tweak little things about their cut until it’s just right. The same goes for product. Don’t hesitate to ask your stylist if they have any tips about the product you’re using. If the product isn’t working for you, you can always return it and we’ll help find you the right one.
