Clemente Javier - Long hair specialist

There are many things I don't particularly like about myself: my wrinkled and currently un-botoxed forehead, my body (I'm a woman for pete's sake), my broken pinky and my inability to carry a tune, to name a few. My hair is not one of these things. Although, in the past I could not say that. My hair had always been a huge problem. It's thin, but I have a ton of it. It likes to frizz out as soon as moisture hits it and it never seems to fall properly in place. My views about my hair have changed drastically ever since I started going to long hair specialist, Clemente Javier.

As with most things I love, I found out about him through Twitter. And, I'm so glad I did! He has helped me to learn the best way to style my hair, protect and care for it, as well as help me to understand what looks best on me. Typically, when I visit a salon they cannot wait to grab the clippers and remove a foot off the length of my locks. I appreciate Clemente because he will cut the hair that's necessary to keep it healthy, but he will do his best to keep the length.

He also taught me what products are absolutely necessary versus trying to up-sell me on a product line that is expensive but useless. I cannot tell you how much I loathe the "up-sell" at salons. The fact that Clemente does not carry a line of products is a huge bonus for me. I never feel pressured to buy product and I know if he recommends one it isn't because a manager is staring at him intently to make a sale.

Here is a picture of my hair from my last trip to see him, I love this picture because I can honestly say I love my hair and I love my stylist :-) (taken with my iPhone, photo untouched, hair is highlighted):

Make an appointment with Clemente:

On a sidenote, here is a picture of a necklace that I have been obsessed with for over a year now. If you love the show "The New Adventures Of Old Christine" like I do, then certainly you are as much in love with this necklace as I am!
