“every haircut and color a work of art”… an opportunity for excellence and exceeding expectations

“From time to time, I’ve heard hairdressers make a case that, every haircut (or color) doesn’t have to be a work of art; “You’ve got to get the clients in and out if you’re going to make any money.” I disagree and say, yes, every haircut does have to be a work of art; or, at the least approached as the creation of a work of art. Each and every haircut/color/client is an opportunity for excellence, creative expression and personal style.” • David Kinigson
