Frequently Asked Questions

How is Hair Balancing different from a conventional hair cut?

In a Hair Balancing session, each strand of hair is balanced from every direction, creating fluid motion and a precise, long lasting style. Your entire head of hair is brought into balance with your face and body, creating a personalized look that brings out the very best you. We recognize that one function of your hair is similar to antenna. We fine tune that aspect, harmonizing and integrating the flow of every hair, helping you to feel lighter, clearer, and more vital.

Does ‘balanced hair’ have a style?

Hair can be balanced into an infinite variety of lengths and styles based on the client’s choice. Attractive wash and wear hair designs are created to work with your features, body and lifestyle. Hair Balancing enhances all kinds of hair, and the experience is enjoyed by both women and men.

How does Hair Balancing affect the whole person?

We treat your hair with the quality of care you would give your skin or eyes; parts of you that have vital functions. Hair also conducts life force energy. The quality of energy is influenced by the health of the hair. How your hair choices impact your work, social life and the environment are also important aspects of Hair Balancing. Acupuncture points and meridians connect your hair with the rest of the body so the benefits of a balanced haircut can be felt holistically throughout the body .

When your hair is balanced, there is an increased energy flow to the head, creating a more alive, yet relaxed feeling. Hair is also the extension of he physical body into its electromagnetic field (the aura). Kirlian photography has documented many positive changes in the auric field after the hair has been balanced. A conscious positive relationship with our hair can have a ripple effect on the rest of our lives. It can empower confidence and self esteem.

How do you work with problems such as damage or hair loss?

We look at all aspects of a person’s life that might influence unwanted hair and scalp conditions, and treat them holistically. Your session may include education about nutrition, stress, health conditions, products or hair care practices that influence the health of your hair. Each Balancing relaxes the scalp muscles and improves circulation in three important ways, helping the follicles to nurture healthy hair growth.

How can Sacred Geometry influence my haircut or style?

Sacred Geometry is the language of shape that generates the laws of physics. It is the flawless structure beneath reality, even underlying mathematics. Following the natural laws and order of Sacred Geometry creates many of the benefits that clients experience.

Is my hair actually being cut with Hair Balancing?
Yes it is cut, and much more. Hair Balancing uses a precise pattern of Sacred Geometry that can be applied to almost any style. It is much more than a haircut, it is a holistic healing art that enhances the well-being of your whole person, not only your hair.

What happens in a Hair Balancing Session?
In a Hair Balancing session each strand of hair is beveled from four directions, creating fluid motion and a precise, long lasting style. Your entire head of hair is brought into balance with your face and body, creating a personalized look that brings out the very best You. We recognize that one function of your hair is similar to antenna. This aspect is fine-tuned, harmonizing and integrating the flow of every hair, helping you to feel lighter, clearer, more aware and more attractive.

What is the cost of a Hair Balancing?
Hair Balancing is a healing art that releases stress and fine-tunes your energy field while your hair is being cut and the style is being created. The results are so precise that they tend to last 2-3 times longer than conventional haircuts. A session takes about 90 minutes and the fee for new clients is from $125 – $150 based on how long, how thick and how damaged the hair is.

I always make accommodations for special circumstances, such as my elderly clients on fixed income, or clients who are in cancer treatment or for other reasons are unable to work for a time.

Do I pay the same fee if I only want a little trim?
In order to do a truly balanced cut, the entire sacred geometry pattern must completed. This is the case if the client is growing their hair longer, and only wants the teensiest bit trimmed, or if they are doing a major style change. It is the thoroughness of the process that produces the long lasting grow out and the balancing of your auric or energetic field. So the price is not based on how much is trimmed. That said, many times a simple bang trim or a clean-up around the ears is all that is needed when everything else is growing out perfectly. The volume and the health of the hair are factors in how long the tune up takes and will influence the cost of the adjustment which would probably be minimal.

What if I have a long-standing relationship with my current hairdresser, but I am curious to experience Hair Balancing?
I understand your concerns about experimenting with something as important as your hair. I have seen many of my clients for 20-30 years, so I appreciate the value of a long-term relationship where someone really ‘gets’ your hair. If my clients try a new stylist, usually when traveling, it is always interesting to see what another stylist’s inspiration creates. Most often my clients want to have their hair ‘balanced’ by me afterwards. Even if they like the new style, it just doesn’t feel right if it’s not balanced.

Your hair care practitioner is someone you hire for a particular service. If you are not completely satisfied, why not try other practitioners to see if someone serves your needs better? There is a scarcity consciousness among some hair stylists, who may feel threatened if their clients want to experience what other professionals might do. I believe there is more than enough for everyone, and hopefully clients will choose the practitioners they feel most comfortable with personally and who best care for their hair.

Several of my clients have me balance their hair, and go to a hair colorist for their chemical processing needs.  I do not work with chemicals and am always looking for great health conscious colorists to refer to. Among certified Hair Balancing practitioners, we will take care of each others clients, always for the convenience and comfort of the client.
