Finding a good hair stylist depends on many factors. Your stylist is responsible for making one of your greatest assets look attractive, but there are many other qualities to consider when choosing a stylist.
I have found an amazing stylist in Kennesaw at Anita’s Hair Cottage. Let me tell you why I admire her.
She’s honest. Before my first appointment, my friend who was a client of Anita’s warned me that she would be very honest about what needed to be fixed. What I found was Anita is honest, but she is also very kind.
She listens. This is one of the most important qualities for me. I have known stylists who were more interested in their vision for me instead of what I wanted. She also asks you questions to make sure she understands what you want.
She’s creative. Anita has a creative talent that she expresses through hair styling. She believes everyone has attractive features, but we might need advice about accentuating those features. She wants to make her clients feel good about the way they look.
She is funny. Anita enjoys lifting others and interacting with everyone who comes through the door. I spent a lot of time laughing with her and her daughter Lisa, her assistant. Lisa has a dry wit that gets me every time.
The space is inviting. The salon is in a cute cottage surrounded by creative décor that Anita has accumulated. She also has beautiful plants and a garden. Inside it is cozy and bright.
She wants to help people. She shares her quiet, Christian wisdom and feels it is important to give her complete attention to each person.
Anita has been at the cottage for 25 years. She wanted to be a hairstylist all her life. She told me when she was little she loved to cut and style her Barbie’s hair. She enjoys being a part of the Kennesaw community, and the community she has built with her clients.
Another great addition to the salon is Anita’s dog, Gracie. Gracie has a calming effect on clients. She will greet you with tail-wagging enthusiasm and occasionally wander over to see if you want to pet her. Be careful though to close up your purse because Gracie will be searching for mints and tissues.
