Because hairdressers can be artists, too!
And I am lucky to have one such artist hairdresser. His name is Osamu and he cuts hair at Polaris Hair Studio in NYC. Every time I go see him he listens attentively to what I want, discusses how he’s going to cut my hair, and yes, even draws annotated pictures of my hair style. He’s not a chatty hairdresser (“focused” is a more apt description) so I just sit back and watch the magic happen.
(P.S. Yes, I did go “pixie” again last week. )
