- P.J. Lussier
Feb 10, 2013 - I am thrilled to have found my favorite curly stylist ever is now at Obsessions Salon and Day Spa! After having had supposed curly hair experts (including Ouidad and Deva) in Chicago, New York and elsewhere cut my hair, in my fifty plus years I've never found anyone who listens to the client and personalizes a great and manageable curly cut and style any better than P.J.. For example, on my last visit I told him I wanted to go short, and he was very careful to clarify exactly what length and style I meant by "short" and whether I meant wet or dry, which as any curly girl knows are two entirely different lengths! His color is amazing, too; he made subtle adjustments in my personal lowlight formula which made the end result closer to the shiny medium blonde I was before I was gray. As a bonus, he's a very positive and down to earth man and interesting to chat with. Once while I was under the lights I listened as he carefully walked someone through the steps it would take to go from her current style to the new style she wanted. He never dissed the woman's previous stylist but pointed out places that would be "more challenging" than others as it grew out. He's tactful, but honest. Plus, if you want he teaches you exactly how to style your cut. You walk out with a great color, cut and style - and a smile, but unlike with some other stylists, the confident feeling about your hair lasts past the first time you shampoo. Obsessions is conveniently located at the rotary in East Longmeadow and has plenty of parking in the back. I'm looking forward to trying some of their other services too. To schedule your appointment with him, call (413) 374-1306.
