inspiration found.

blog written by Simon (senior stylist at Hairroin Salon)

I get a lot of inspiration from just walking down the street.
I'm not talking about the countless perfect highlights and precision long layers you so frequently see, but the "do it yourself" cuts and styles you see walking so nonchalantly by. Someone who maybe came home after a few too many glasses of wine and looked into the mirror, got a great idea, and grabbed the nearest cuticle scissors or kitchen shears and threw caution into the wind. Or the kid who has a friend that has aspirations of becoming a world class stylist and is plopped down in front of a mirror by the friend who has clippers in one hand and a comb in the other.
Not that these are ways to have a great haircut. Quite the contrary. But it seems that in the absence of structure, an eye for balance, or a knowledge of the basics of hair cutting/coloring/styling, all rules are broken, and pleasant accidents are reached.
Seeing risks taken that I would not normally take because, who wants to pay to have an experiment done on their head, is extremely inspiring and sometimes just what one needs to leave the very comfortable world of one length cuts and perfect square layers.
Keeping your eye open to the "bad", often allows you to see the truly "good"...
