As a young kid, I was mesmerized by the ugly duckling make over T.V. shows where they would transform a person’s look through hair services and fashion.

I went back to school to become a hairstylist where I can share my passion for hair with my clients.

Joshua — Hair Stylists in Encinitas, CA
 
Joshua
Hair Stylist. Encinitas
At Detour since 2015
What are your favorite services to perform?
My favorite service to perform would have to be blow dry styles. I feel that a blow dry can make or break any service that you perform. It can make a not-so-great cut look fantastic. As well, a great cut can look mediocre with a not-so-good bow dry.
My inspiration for doing hair is the joy of meeting new people and the freedom to be creative. Throughout history, hair has been a key of expression; it's been a statement of class and royalty. The art of hair has been around long before the elegant hair of queen Cleopatra and will remain around long after any Jennifer Anniston trend!

Vanity
Hair Stylist. Hillcrest
Started with Detour October, 2012.
What are your favorite services to perform?
Color/balayage/highlights , extensions, upstyles. I love doing color, any kind of color. Being able to customize a color specifically for each person, finding the tones that work for their complexion and creating soft beautiful blends with highlights that grow out nice and natural are the best part of my day.
Extensions are so fun because they're the same kind of satisfaction you get from doing a fun, completely different cut for your client and eat they're the exact opposite because you're adding length. I love that they can also be customized by only adding a few for volume or thickness as well.
When it comes to upstyles,
I just love getting someone's hair all dolled up for a night out or a special occasion. Seeing my client's happy face when I turn them around to see the back of their updo is such a great feeling.
What is your inspiration for doing for doing hair?
A happy client. When a client leaves my chair and can't stop smiling, or checking themselves out in the mirror, or touching their hair. It's an amazing feeling to know you did that and it keeps me inspired to continue growing and learning to bring new things back to show them.
