My Lil Pokemon Man!

Yesterday was a wonderfully kaotic day in the salon and we had the pleasure of meeting a little guy named Jameyson Waits. He has to be my favorite customer thus far, he was soooo cute. For such a tiny guy (3 years old) he had a HUGE personality. He had never had a haircut before and had a head full of blond shaggy locks to show for it. Jameyson looked like he belonged on a beach with a surf board. As soon as I welcomed him he informed me that he was here to get a haircut and had a picture in his hand. He slid the picture over the reception desk and let me know this is what he wanted. It was a computer downloaded image of a little boy with super short, spiky hair. As I looked up at his dad to make sure he was okay with this, I was SHOCKED his parents were comfortable with him going with such a dramatic change. Most parents we see are super conservative and very reluctant to change when it comes to their little boy's haircuts (much more so then the little girls), but I also knew (just by meeting Jameyson for a few minutes) this little man was probably VERY convincing once he set his mind to something.
I asked him why he wanted to cut his hair so bad and he simply replied (as if I should have already known) "I want to look like Pokemon"! It was precious....
Mrs. Tonia grabbed a quick before picture, gave Jameyson exactly the haircut he wanted, topped it off with Jameyson's request of red AND black hair ink, and shot an after photo. His certificate was perfect. It captured his awesome personality and made a lot of people smile.
Thanks so much to both of his parents for sharing this memory with me and my staff; I know we will NEVER forget it. We hope to see you guys again in the future.

  1. this is jameyson's mom and i just now came across what you had wrote about him! i really appreciate it and you are right he has a very big personality! lol! he had a justin beiber haircut for the past year. we had to bring a pic in of this hairstyle too! lol! he knows what he likes! we will be sure to come back for his next haircut adventure! We loved it there and i would like to say that i try my best to let him have a huge part in some major decisions, like his hair, which is what i think gives him confidence and a more outgoing personality. thank you again for a great time.
