I (Justin Born) wanted to share images with you from a photo shoot that we did here in the salon in March. Knowing your work is going to be photographed really helps to get the creative juices flowing and thinking about what you want your work to say. I enjoy doing a wide range of hair from the girl next door to something a bit more edgy and funky. I don’t think everyone is meant to have bright red highlights but if it fits you I love going there. I’m really passionate about color and think everyone could use a little even if it’s just to add some shine. Cutting men’s hair is fun for me due to the amount of detailing and precision that’s used, kinda like carving a statue! I think your hair should reflect what’s on the inside and for some people that changes on a whim and for others it’s more consistent. I love coming to work each day knowing each client is different, and I never know what interesting people I might meet. Your hair is your everyday accessory so why not make it fun, effortless, and keep it looking it’s best!?
I feel so fortunate to have found my place here at Bloom Beauty Lounge. Right from the start the super talented staff were warm, welcoming and encouraging. A breath of fresh air from what I was encountering in the high pace and competitive hair dressing world on the mean streets of the city that never sleeps. It’s really important to me to keep myself inspired and surround myself with other creative individuals. And to top it off working in such a diverse a great neighborhood like Chelsea!
I can’t wait to share more of my work soon!
