Hair by Martin Exclusive Hampstead Hairdresser


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

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.
