Meet Our Jet’s Monday………Kimberly

Today we would like to introduce Kimberly, one of our talented Hairstylist!

What made you want to be a Stylist?                                        kim

I always wanted to be able to do hair, and did lots of amateur hair before I actually learned how.  One day I went into a friend’s hair salon from my hometown and he said “It’s like going to art class all day”.  That did it for me.

What’s your trademark?

Sultry, undone looks

Give us a random fact about yourself?

I’m a Jesus freak

Do you have a Wonder Hair Product?

Bumble and Bumble’s City Swept.  I love using it after a brushed out curling iron set – gives a soft-focused, sexy finish

You’re passionate about your job, but what career would you have chosen if you weren’t a Hairstylist?

Yoga Instructor

What’s the perks of your job?

Having an excuse to create a custom look for myself everyday!

Thanks Kim!!! You are such an awesome person inside and out. We are so thankful to have you on our team!

How to talk to your stylist to get the hair you deserve!

Have you ever had a haircut or color you hate? We’ve all been there.  And chances are you fumed about it, blamed the stylist and moved on.  Unless you take corrective action, chances are it will happen again.  Let your stylist know what didn’t work.  While this may be an uncomfortable conversation, a professional stylist will appreciate the feedback, understand you better, right the wrong and grow from their mistake.  The last thing a professional wants is an unhappy guest.  If you don’t have confidence in the stylist, or you think another stylist in the salon might be a better fit for you, voice these feelings to the salon manager so they can place you appropriately.  This is not personal – it is YOUR hair.  And a good stylist will understand.  And the salon will appreciate your loyalty.  Here are some helpful tips on how to get the haircut/color that has others asking “who does your hair”:

  • Get a stylist referral from someone who has great looking hair.  It is ok to ask a stranger.
  • Interview the stylist. Ask about their training/experience. Most reputable salons offer complimentary consultations.  Take advantage of this offer to see if the stylist is a fit for you.
  • Explain your lifestyle.  If you are low maintenance, out the door – make sure your stylist knows so your haircut/color will be easy maintenance.  If you are able to spend 10-15 minutes prepping your hair, that is important information.  A thorough stylist will get to know you and give you a custom look that will work for your schedule.
  • Bring pictures.  It will help your stylists visualize the look you are interested in achieving.  Some styles might not fit your hair type or lifestyle.  A great stylist will be able to adjust the style to fit you, while explaining what will be different to make the style work.
  • Be specific on what you like and don’t like.  Instead of saying “cut an inch”, show your stylist exactly where you want your hair to end up, draw a line so the stylist can visualize the end result.
  • While you are getting your hair cut, it is very important to keep your head straight.  If your body’s balance is off, you could end up with a crooked haircut so no cell or crossing the legs or reading.
  • Stylists will educate you on how to maintain your look.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions.  Ask to try the technique.  Understand why each product is beneficial.  Your style only begins at the salon.  If you can’t maintain the look, you won’t be happy with the style so make sure you understand how to keep the look.  If you get home and cannot re-create the look, make a follow-up blow-out appointment and have the stylist walk you through how to get the look.
  • Make sure to use the right products to maintain the look.  Harsh shampoo removes color.  The sun and salt water will dry out your hair.  Proper washing, conditioning and styling products will keep the salon look between services and help your haircut/color last longer.

Groove Jet Salon + Spa offers 15 minute complimentary, no obligation consultations and a 2-week guarantee policy – if you are not satisfied, we will redo your hair complimentary.  And you can check out our service provider’s bios on our website www.groovejetsalon.com.

Dry Cuticle’s and Nails got ya down this Winter?……

It’s a fact of life when things lose moisture they dry out, crack, split, wrinkle, and break easily…..Same goes for your skin and nails!! As a Nail Technician, I have used every brand of cuticle cream and oil out there. Nothing works as well as CND Solar Oil. It is my saving grace all year round but especially in the winter months. I spend a lot of time in Acetone making all my lovely clients have beautiful nails. Unfortunately my own take a beating in the process. I obsessively use Solar Oil to stay ahead of all the dryness, peeling and nasty cuticles!!! I ALWAYS lather it on before I go to sleep at night…..you know your not going to wash your hands for 6+ hours (hopefully). The oil goes deeper that creams can. It seeps in the pores of your cuticle’s nourishing not only your cuticles but your nail beds as well!!! So go ahead and lather that solar oil on!!!

CND Solar Oil has pure almond oil, alojoba oil, vitamin E and other fabulous essential goodness. It comes in .5oz bottles and .125oz (perfect for travel or your purse).
