Hello all you good rats out there,
I cut, color, and treat hair.
That is the shortest explanation of what I do for a career.
Yet, there is much much more involved when I take a guest at my chair.
I greet you and make sure you are welcomed and comfortable.
I seat you and ask how your day is going…out of genuine interest.
I ask you “what are we going to do today?”….giving you the chance to lead.
I drape you in a fashionably rugged black plastic cape…and begin the process of seeing that you’re relaxed and allowed to unplug.
You see…I was gifted with the love of service. I don’t do hair because I have to, I do it because it is one of the deepest ways I know how to help people.
My love for hair work extends long past the technical applications of shear and color to your hair.
I give you permission to be yourself and to discover yourself by way of your hair adventure with me.
The technical knowledge and skills are simply vehicles for you to find your way to a better version of yourself.
Many people come to me asking for my trusted opinions because unfortunately…..too many other stylists have let them down. Now, I cannot promise that I will never fail you….but I CAN promise that I will do everything within my power to grant you the integrity and respect you deserve in pursuit of completing your service.
Life is complicated…yet, when you sit for me…I aim to bring some solace to your complex life.
In short….a session with me is not rooted in dollars, countless guests, or record beating service times…no….it is rooted in creating a place in time for you to feel good about who you are…or who you want to be.
I offer you my skills and my hands….in return, I ask you to take a moment from your complex life and allow me to serve.
This is Mr Phil signing off,
