I am living in Honolulu and travel the world extensively, often in search of a new stylist wherever I happen to be. Meeting a new stylist and having them 'get it' is often an experiment - we girls know what a treasured part of our entourage a great stylist can be!
I met Danne Todt through his website, one of the first hits of my search and a great online personality of chic & professional mixed with great style and design. If my hair will be treated with the same design & care as this great website, then I'm in!
GOOD first impression!
I requested an appointment during one of the busiest weekends of the year, knowing that on the mainland I often have to book with 4-6 weeks minimum notice! Danne responded that he couldn't fit me in during the up-coming weekend (only a few days away; and marathon + holiday traffic at that!) but to be sure that I had an option for my requested day he was so kind as to offer to refer me to another stylist. I assume that a recommendation like that, ie. he potentially loses a new client to this 'other' stylist, meant that MY needs were put first.
GREAT second impression!
In no need for urgency, I scheduled an appointment the following weekend, with Danne, and had the best experience. He listened (and REALLY listened) to my long list of likes and dislikes, my challenges with curly wanna-be blonde in this humid climate, and all of my product questions to cure the many bad-hair-day-ailments.
As a result, I have great color (hair painting application) and a whole new product line to explore (he gave me a sample to try instead of pushing product which is so refreshing!). And, I am excited to trust him with my next hair-cut after brainstorming what would be best for ME and feeling confident that he can deliver.
I now have a trusted hair-stylist, and hair-care advisor in Hawaii; thanks to Danne Todt!
Excellent LASTING impressions!
Check out his Bumble & Bumble product as well.
Pros: Hooked by a great website & I enjoyed a great experience!
