Naomi’s client Kendall came to her after the birth of her second baby with concerns that her hairline was getting finer. She was missing that full bang that she used to have. Naomi achieved this look with GL Tapes. They give that volume at the front, allowing the hair to fall nicer, and cover a larger area. Her client is absolutely loving them!
Naomi recommends clients resolve to…
“To treat your hair like it’s “dry clean only”! We go to the salon and spend money to get our hair healthy and shiny and then go home and use the cheapest product and expect it to be maintained. I want clients to see the benefits of home care. Instead of hearing, “my hair never looks like this when I do it at home”, I want to hear, “Oh my god, my hair has never felt or looked better!”
Her thoughts on 2019 trends…
“Trends are mostly guidelines for us to follow. It is our job as stylists to tweak them and make them work in a way that is best suited to a client’s needs and look. I’d love to see a more modern mullet come back. It sounds crazy, but Joan Jett, Cher and Jane Fonda all rocked it. Upgrade to years ahead and move towards a strong, face-framing, long fringe.”
The highlight of her year?
“Throughout your career you hear all kinds of stories from people. This year I was honoured to meet a few people who overcame cancer and hear their stories. Women going through cancer treatments often say the treatment itself didn’t scare them, but the thought of losing their hair was unimaginable. After meeting with them, helping them attain hair they thought would be completely unachievable was the best feeling in the world. It was a challenge for me, and for Great Lengths. My expectations were high for GL and they came through. I was able to help these ladies have the confidence to look in the mirror again. I love empowering women to stand tall and be proud of who they are and sometimes it starts with a great head of hair. Giving back to the community in the one way I know best was my highlight this year, and that’s fixing a fellow woman’s crown when she needed it most.”
