Q&A with Emerson April, Manager, Stylist, Director of Marketing and Social Media
When and how did you first realize you wanted to be involved in hair styling?
When I realized I can actually make a difference in peoples' lives and that I enjoy pampering people. People would walk in unhappy from a bad day, month, or entire life, and leave smiling because I'm very good at what I do, and I listen, I really listen to what you want. I'm just intensely fascinated by people, what they do, and how they look. Perhaps I'm just a nosy person, who knows, but doing hair, well, is never just about doing hair. The creative artistic expression is great too, but to be honest, there [are] few times I really get to cut wild, as it's about what you want, not what I want.
If the apocalypse ever comes, what low-maintenance hairstyle would you recommend for the foraging person on-the-go?
Just shave it all off—after all, it's only hair. Like seriously, just get rid of it, it's basically a lunch-basket handle at this point. However, if you must have hair to feel feminine or simply yourself (which I totally get) then grow it really long with no layers and weave some fish hooks through it and use it as a weapon like on an old kung fu movie, that's badass beauty.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I really want to stress that we love you for who you are, it's kind of our slogan. ... We have a bit of an edge to us, but gosh darn are we friendly. I give incredible massages ... I am picky and sometimes appointments will run longer to get things exactly right. I just want people to let me know if they are unhappy, usually it's a quick fix. ... Sometimes it just doesn't work the first time, and it can take several visits to get exactly what you want, especially if you have box dye in your hair.
