My Mission

On Sunday, we discussed the importance of determining your mission, vision and values. Today, I will share with you my mission to hopefully get you inspired to start your own! 

Marco’s Tip of the Week: “Mission Vision Values”

Your Vision of yourself is who you are; the Value is who you want to become. Your Mission is how you achieve that. When we were in our twenties we were one way; now that we may be in our forties, fifties, or older, we are another way. Does our look reflect who we are now? Are we stuck in a rut? Are we trying to be someone we’re not? 

Marco’s Tip of the Week: “Presentation”

Whenever we meet someone for the first time, whenever we interview someone for a job, whenever we react to a new situation, we rely on the thoughts that bubble up from our unconscious. Malcolm Gladwell once gave an example in his book titled “Blink”: “How long did it take you, when you were in college, to decide how good a teacher your professor was? A class? Two classes? A semester?”

Marco’s Tip of the Week: “Not Just Hair”

One client, who was friendly but shy and overweight, wouldn’t look me in the eye. As I was cutting her hair, I noticed she had gorgeous hands and I told her so. She looked me dead in the eye. I asked her what was wrong. She told me that after her divorce she had gained a lot of weight and that I was the first man in five years, besides her father, who had complimented her. She was sad about that. I encouraged her to use her hands in conversations, to begin to believe in herself, to stop punishing herself, to look at her hands and use them to express herself. 

Marco’s Tip of the Week: “Stepping Out”

The father of one of my daughter’s friends had done a big favor for me. At the time he wasn’t my client, but I was grateful and I offered to share some ideas I had about his hair. He was a large man, with a full face, and he had decided to grow a beard. The beard was trimmed very close to his face and the style made his cheeks stick out, almost like chipmunk cheeks. His hair was very short, which accentuated the chipmunk cheeks.

What's Life all about

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately and wondering what life is all about. We go on day after day trying to make it so we can buy bigger and better things. Whatever that means. As I've gotten older I've come to the conclusion that life is about a whole lot more than just material things. When it's about things where does it end? It' never enough. For years I've been Looking for the answer that will take me to a highter level and make me my fortune.

I have clients who call up and say,"I'm so depressed. Can I come in and have my hair cut to make me feel better?"

Illusions: Styling your hair to your face

 Hair can create powerful illusions that work for you or against you. If it's styled with no thought about the face it surrounds, it may actually bring out some feature that you don't want to emphasize. Styled thoughtfully, however, it will shape,soften, and work to your advantage.

 How to Determine Your Shape

Look at the Shape of Your Face

 Seventy to eighty percent of hairstylist cut heads, not faces. They're more interested in what the cut itself looks like then in how it looks with your face. They can do the cut perfectly, but they don't have any sense of the face that it surrounds.
