What's the biggest mistake you can make in styling?

on Aug 19, 2008

It's hard to tell what the biggest challenge is with children's hair -- finding an appropriate style or just understanding how to work with kids. One goes with the other though. If you can manage a good rapport, it's hard to not please younger clients. Unless, of course, you put a bowl on their head and cut them like Prince Valiant. Fortunately, none of our stylists did that. Everyone actually did a good job of bringing their signature work to the younger clientele. You could see that Charlie is someone who likes to keep hair neat and tidy and out of the way (that was one sturdy ponytail, but good luck to the mother who tries to duplicate it). Dee's issue with the bangs was an unfortunate misstep. Precision cutting is something that is essential for any cut like hers. Maintaining structure is key, regardless of how old or young the client is. In the end, the stylists really couldn't go wrong.
