Google hangouts aside I rarely look my clients in the eye. Almost all my business is done over email and phone, and while I try not to descend into terrifying swamp lady territory I do tend to think about my hair as a nuisance rather than my crowing glory.
This is where I delegate to another artist, Willow Witten. She fulfilled all of my requirements for a haircut. The main one was the ability to go from zero to fancy in under four minutes before 6:30am. I couldn't be more delighted with the result.
If you live in Austin you must give her a visit!
