Tony's Hair Fashion Forecast
Tony believes that the trends for spring and summer will provide a lot of versatility for clients and that shorter lengths will reflect a "strong geometric feel softened by scattered layers to allow movement". Medium to longer lengths are reminiscent of the shag with a modern twist which he likes to call "The Millennium Shag", with the strength of the weight line depending on who is wearing it. Hair color will be "anything but monochromatic" and dimension "will be achieved with strong definitive placement". Because of the strong placement, the colors chosen may only be one or two shades apart. "Warm blondes mixed with pale blondes make up a light family of color", and for medium to dark haired clients, "warm browns and mahogany create beautiful dimension."
Appointments with Godiva rarely run behind and they do not double book or squeeze people in as the staff believes that the clients time is important.
They will evaluate your face shape, bone structure and hair type to determine your needs and then blend this information with your wants to provide a great hairstyling experience and to produce a great hair design. They will also teach you how to handle your new hair cut and style at home.
