Back in April I decided to get a cut a color for my birthday. Since getting a blowout, I know I needed a trim, so I contacted Tamika of Wesley Styles to do a cut and color. I’ve seen Tamika do hair demos several times at her shop and at hair events, so I already knew she does a great job. As a new customer, I had to schedule a beauty analysis to talk about color options, perform a skin allergy test with hair color as well as a hair strand test to see how the color I picked would look in my hair. Prior to my visit, I was encouraged by Tamika to bring pictures of cuts and colors that interested me. For “cutting day”, I was pretty excited so I decided to share via Snapchat. You can partially see my stingy ends and my excitement to get rid of them.
After shaping, we decided to do a halo highlight instead of a full head coloring. She styled my hair using the Wonder Curl Curl control Styling Lotion for a wash and go. I really liked the definition it gave and my hair was soft. When we first did the color, I BARELY saw a difference. The only way I was really able to see a difference was in the sunlight. Below are the first, third and month differences.
My overall experience with Tamika was good and I’ve since gone back to get the color lifted. I don’t plan on coloring my hair again for a while, but I’l definitely be back for a trim come August. I even contemplated on getting a tapered cut. If you’re in the NYC area and looking for a stylist, visit the Wesley Styles NYC official website or follow Tamika or Instagram and Facebook. She is natural, but provides hair care for all hair types.
