Why is Pam my pick for best hairstylist?? I’ll tell you why … I “cheated ” on her once out of sheer laziness and ended up having to grow my hair out for a year just to get it back to where she could fix it. I’ve never sat in Pam’s chair or left Pam’s chair with that anxious feeling like “oh god what did she do to my hair?”!
Pam has been banging hair for 16 years. She originally started out in graphic design, but found that she preferred using her hands as her creative tools. That just happened to come in the way of cutting hair. She started on herself, then friends, and then decided she wanted to train professionally. She went to train at Toni & Guy.
She owned her own salon in Shreveport, but was longing for more of the kind of culture that a place like Dallas could provide. Once she heard there was a Frederic Fekkai in Dallas she was determined to work there to get the impeccable experience. After years of working there, she decided to branch out to a salon that allowed her more flexibility as well as allowing her to utilize her creative side more. There is a wider range of clients that walk through the doors of Hair by Charlie, people like me who want a more conservative cut and people who want a more unconventional/funky look. Whatever you want, Pam is there to walk you through it.
She takes the time to talk to you about what you want, as well as offer suggestions given the texture of your hair and your lifestyle. She is NOT one of those arrogant hairstylists that gives you the cut they think you should have … we’ve all been there. One minute you look down and the next you look up and all your hair is cut off when really you just went in for a trim. She listens. There have been plenty of times I’ve gone in with ideas of growing my hair out or having a blunt lob – she’s always been on board to help give me the look I wanted to achieve. Even though eventually I sit back in her chair and tell her I hate the style I was going for and we just go in a different direction. She’s as flexible as you want her to be, trying to give you the look you want.
SOME OF HER RECENT STYLES …
I love this cut that she’s been doing for me lately. It gives me body, allows me to play with styles like braids, partially up styles, curled or stick straight – the cut just suits my life so perfectly right now. I’m in love with it!!!
Look, I grew up in the 80’s … hair is an important element to me! So – check Pam out … She get’s my stamp of approval & that is really not easy when it comes to hair.
OH, did I mention she’s super fun and doesn’t take herself too seriously. You’ll love her!
