A Chat with Christa Michelle Hair at Salon Jules
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
A haircut isn't just cutting hair- that is just a very small portion of it. During the consultation I will take into account lifestyle and hair texture to help you get to your hair goals. I prefer to cut hair dry, allowing hair to fall naturally and show the final shape as I am cutting.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been behind the chair at salons in Portland ranging from high-end and sophisticated to edgy and alternative. I have spent the last year training under a top stylist on the Portland Waterfront perfecting my skills, and it was time to break out on my own.
What do you love most about your job?
Making people feel good about themselves. A haircut isn't who a person is, but it can evoke confidence and refine the person you project to the world. It is a way to communicate who you are to those around you. I like to help people find their voice through style.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The best reaction someone could give me is to come back and see me again. Or referring in their friends and acquaintances.
