What makes an Exclusive Hot Hairdresser?

What is hairdressing; according to the Oxford dictionary, it is the occupation of cutting and styling hair. (https://languages.oup.com/google-dictionary-en/). Wikipedia states that a hairdresser is a person whose occupation is to cut or style hair in order to change or maintain a person’s image. This is achieved using a combination of hair colouring, haircutting, and hair texturing techniques. Wikipedia

Hair dressing, also known as hairdressing, is the art of styling, cutting, and grooming hair. It is a profession that has been around for centuries and continues to be an important part of our daily lives.


Hairdressers, also known as stylists or barbers, are trained professionals who specialize in styling, cutting, and caring for hair. They often work in salons, barbershops, or as freelance stylists, providing a range of services including haircuts, styling, coloring, and hair treatments.

Hair dressing requires a combination of artistic skills and technical knowledge. Stylists must be able to create a wide range of hairstyles to suit their clients’ preferences and needs, using a variety of techniques including cutting, styling, and coloring. They must also be familiar with the latest trends and styles, and be able to adapt to changing fashions.


In addition to styling and cutting hair, hairdressers may also be responsible for maintaining the cleanliness and appearance of their work environment, as well as managing appointments and interacting with clients.


Hair dressing can be a rewarding and creative career for those who have a passion for styling and working with hair. In addition to providing a range of services to their clients, hairdressers have the opportunity to express their creativity and build strong relationships with their clients.


If you are interested in pursuing a career in hairdressing, it is important to receive proper training and education. Many hairdressers attend beauty schools or vocational schools to receive training in hair care, styling, and other related skills. It is also important to stay up to date on the latest techniques and trends by continuing your education and seeking out opportunities for professional development.

Is this correct or are we excluding the transformational effect?  Surely each of us who has visited an amazing hairdresser for “hairdressing” will know what I am referring to.

Speaking to my award-winning local Hampstead Village hairdresser, Martin Kolar, he agrees that hairdressing is much more than that…. According to him, it is an act of passion, by the hairdresser, that transform the subjects’  world.    He might do this using a variety of techniques with exotic names like Balayage but the destination is always the same.  This might sound dramatic, but is it?  

When we consider our “world” is distinctly defined by our perspectives.  Where perspective is defined by Oxford languages as the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses. “the normal limits to human perception” or how something is regarded, understood, or interpreted

“Perception moulds, shapes, and influences our experience of our reality,” says Linda Humphreys, PhD, a psychologist and life, relationship, and spirituality coach. “Perception is merely a lens or mindset from which we view people, events, and things.”

If these perspectives are changed by our hairdresser surely this then means the act of hairdressing is the act of transforming our worlds?  

We must therefore conclude that the definition for Hairdressing should be the process through which the subjects‘ world is transformed.
