EEEKKKK.. The countdown to 40 is here, October 29th. The series begins starting from head to toes. Now, I totally get it, where is that perfect hairstylist?
I spent years and years getting free haircuts. When my hair was long and luxurious I would get bored and want a drastic change. Instead of paying $60 for a cut I would be a hair model and let the educated assistants have fun.
My long hair was going pixie! He didn’t even blink and asked a few questions. In the past when I mentioned to a stylist that I was chopping off my hair they would say “oh no really?”.
I knew Nemesis was the one, I didn’t panic midway through the cut. Have you ever felt that midway through the cut that “they” were not doing it correctly or worry that your hair is going to turn out different than expected? Boy the cut was so perfect!!
After all these years I knew I found the one!
Since I am turning 40 I asked him to give me a color for my birthday!
I wonder what color did he actually choose?
All right almost ready to see what happened!
Who is this guy Nemesis?
Nemesis born and raised in Silicon Valley fell in love with hair at an early age. His mother was a hair stylist . He attended his first hair show in the 3rd grade with his mom. Growing up he was surrounded by hair and in high school he started cutting his friends hair. After high school he thought about going into the Navy. Instead he attended a local cosmetology school.
Most recently he added a barber chair to his station. Yes, gentlemen sit down in his chair and he will trim and shape your beard or give you a clean shave.
As you know I love to ask 6 questions.
- Who is your favorite hairstylist? I don’t have a lot but Nick Arrojo is good.
- Favorite Clippers? Oster 76
- Favorite Products: R+co and Oribe
- Favorite Colorist: Damian Carney, he pushes you up a level and not afraid to keep it fun and inspiring.
- What is the hair cultural differences between East/West Coast? East Coasters are more conservative when it comes to hair (huh? why?) For example, in New York there are a lot of models and you can’t or don’t want to change your hair to much. If you chopped or drastically colored then you would miss out on jobs (ah I get it). In California you have two different hair cultures, Northern and Southern California. In LA the hair culture is long blonde and extensions. In SF Bay Area anything goes… (I like that).
- What’s next? I added a barber chair and my favorite clippers. Are you ready for that trim?

What’s next after the hair? Ah, yes the eyebrows I mean the face! Ooooo makeup, how can I streamline my makeup aka throw everything out and start fresh? I do believe my makeup is like over 6 months old. That equates to 5 years in make up life at least!!
