HaircutsWhen i started cutting hair in seattle almost twenty years ago i concentrated on learning & developing techniques that would achieve the style or affect i wanted. Cutting straight, fine hair is completely different than cutting thick & curly hair. Each requires its own set of techniques. My approach to cutting hair is to listen to your likes, dislikes & desires you have for your hair. If you do not know what you want you probably know what you don't like. I will offer my thoughts & recomendations as well. E-mail or bringing along pictures of styles always makes it more clear & is encouraged.Options:
Women, Men, Children
ColorTim walsh salon is madison park's haircolor authority. Coloring hair is more art than science. Whether you are looking to add highlights or lowlights, change your color, in need of color correction or are trying to find a haircolor that works best w/ your skin tone, i will work w/ you to achieve what you want. I have been a haircolorist in seattle for as long as i have been cutting & probably do as much if not more hair color than cutting. My approach to hair coloring is similar to cutting in that i listen to what you want & also take into account your skin tone, the condition & the other colors in your hair. I also think in terms of how your color will grow out & look like in 3-5 weeks. Avoiding those faded rusty red tones & brassy yellow is something i have been able to help a lot of people with. My hair coloring work is guaranteed.Options:
Permanent, Demi, Semi, Corrective
HighlightingFoiling, weaving & / or painting one or multiple colors, getting right down to the scalp, insuring the longest possible grow out time, is how i approach highlighting. Applying color using a paint brush, foil, cellophane or whatever will achieve the affect, which really is the point anyway. Whether you want a finely woven natural highlight/lowlight, a streaky more noticeable or a chunky dramatic look or a blend of different colors, i listen to what you want & use the best technique & product for the job.Options:
Highlights, Multi-color, Lowlights
PermanentsI do a lot of permanents designed to add body & not a lot of curl these days. I did a lot of spiral perms in the late 80"s & early 90's. There are a lot more options w/ perms & in general they have become more reliable & actually smell better as well.Options:
Firm, Body waves, Spiral
Thermal ReconditioningThermal reconditioning is a japanese straightening process that makes wavy & curly hair permanently straight. Even w/ the weather we have in seattle it remains straight! During this procedure your hair is reconditioned while also refining its texture. Thermal reconditioned hair stays straight, silky, & smooth even in foggy & humid climates. Thermal reconditioning your hair is a time consuming process taking 3 or more hours to complete. Clients interested in thermal reconditioning should first call for a consultation & evaluation or email me.
WigsI have been working w/ wigs for over ten years. Getting a wig to not look like a wig is definately an art. Wigs are usually constructed w/ too much hair so they look way too full, stiff & blocky. With proper cutting they can be made to look very natural. The best wig maker i know in seattle is anton of anton's hair company wig makers since 1952 (425) 562-7979. i repair, cut, color & style wigs but anton makes the best wigs.
PhilosophyHere is the deal- beauty comes from within. It is not produced by having great hair. Great hair without internal beauty is superficial & is perceived that way. So trust me, if you are a beautiful person it will be seen regardless of your hair. Now if you know this & you want a great haircut or color call me.
