Salon Success: Julia Mulcahy
This May we are shining the spotlight on our tremendously talented Graduate Stylist Julia! Over the last 2 years Julia has developed her cutting and styling skills beautifully, becoming increasingly popular amongst her budding column of clients – and we are very sure her vibrant personality and friendly nature is a huge part of that too! We catch up with Julia on her progress into the world of hair colour and how she plans on developing her colourist skills further.
- How do you feel your highlights course helped you begin providing colour treatments?
It gave me a little bit more clarity on how best to use all the options and techniques available for highlights! It was nice to be able to use this knowledge to transition from dolls heads to real clients who have a variety of hair styles and hair colour requests!
- How do you feel doing colour treatments helps you as a stylist
It certainly helps me provide a more wholesome treatment for my clients. Where I could only cut or style their hair, I am now able to provide them with colour services too – which is such a nice way to be able to spend more time with them, better understand their hair needs and be able to provide a full colour, cut and blow dry!
- What aspect of colour/highlights do you enjoy the most?
One of my favourite treatments is creating a full head of highlights on clients who have not had colour before – seeing the before to after transformation is always really exciting!
- What other hair colour techniques do you hope to explore and develop in the future?
I am really enjoying providing highlights so exploring more bespoke colour services, such as balayages, is definitely next on my list as I continue to develop my colour experience.
- How have your new colour clients encouraged you to develop your hair colour skills?
One thing I am always grateful for from my clients, aside from their lovely and encouraging demeanour, is the patience they have with me whilst I am developing my colour skills. And the feedback I have received has been so encouraging in my learning progress and in my confidence!
PLEASE NOTE: JULIA MULCAHY HAS NOW LEFT THE SALON TO PERSUE ANOTHER ROLE OUTSIDE OF THE HAIR INDUSTRY. WE WISH HER ALL BEST IN HER NEW CAREER!
