Lisa Baker is a curly stylist in Southern California who is passionate about curly hair. I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting her yet but as you can see in the interview and pictures below, she is a master at what she does. If you live in her area I'd suggest you check her out for a cut, and to stock up on your Jessicurl products. :) Thanks for letting me feature you on my blog, Lisa!
How long have you been in business?
Luna Hair Studio has been in business for 15 years. I have 30 years of experience.
Where are you located?
4383 Tujunga Ave. Suite C. Studio City, CA 91604
What made you go into the hair business?
I wanted a job that allowed opportunity for creativity. I always feel best when I’m creating something and the idea of creating hairstyles excited me. I’ve always enjoyed making people feel good about themselves and doing hair allowed for that.
If you specialize in curly hair, what made you adopt that focus?
Having naturally curly hair myself and after trying in the past, to tame it and straighten it, I liked the idea of wearing my curls naturally, and finding products and styles that would allow for that. I also heard a lot of people complaining that no one knew how to cut curly hair correctly, which helped push me in that direction. I wanted people to love their natural curls.
What changes have you seen in relation to curly hair in the last 10 years?
More people are seeing the beauty in their curls, which is proven by the amount of curly hair products on the market today as opposed to 10 years ago. 10 years ago I was blow drying 50% of my clients straight and now I maybe blow out 2%.
How did you first hear about Jessicurl?
By searching the web for natural curly hair produts.
How long have you been carrying Jessicurl?
About 10 years
What sets Jessicurl apart from other lines, curly or otherwise?
Many of my clients who have gluten intolerance can use Jessicurl as opposed to other curly lines. Confident Coils is great at taking the poof out of some clients hair while Spiralicious gives great hold and definition. Many clients appreciate a no fragrance line. The Deep Conditioner and Too Shea are heavy favorites among clients.
