Whether you’re trying to find the perfect haircut or are deciding which color service is right for you, these tips have got you covered.

Cut

Cut Hair Wet And Dry

I highly recommend cutting hair both wet and dry every time. I love trimming hair and shaping when they just sit in the chair and the hair is styled or air dried as they wear it every day...After I shampoo and treat it, I cut the hair again wet, then I check everything for balance and further details after their blowout. Clients appreciate it and you truly can customize an ideal haircut.

When To Get Lowlights

Ask the stylist what colors go well with your skin tone and eye color...Lowlights are perfect for anyone whose color is starting to look flat and monotone.

Coloring Your Hair Is An Investment

I have clients that I see every month to maintain their blonde just as they like...Think of your hair color as a long-term investment and not something you’ll do once and forget about.

Pick The Metallic Shade Perfect For You

When in doubt, look to jewelry. If silver looks best on your skin, stay cool, but if gold is better, try warmer versions.

Min Kim

The Perfect Low Maintenance Color Upgrade

If you want to simply maintain your current color, focus the highlights in a specific area—like around your face—or are trying highlights for the first time, then a partial application may be the best choice for you.
