- P.j. Lussier
Jun 15, 2014 - Near the end of 2013 I decided that I really wanted to grow out my shoulder length naturally curly hair for my wedding in October 2014. I could picture my hair half up with an amazing pile of perfectly defined curls cascading down my back. In the past I've never been able to grow my hair much past my shoulders before getting frustrated with it poofing out at the bottom. The cuts I've had in the past would have long layers and after a while the layers would start frizzing and bell out on the bottom. I decided that I needed to find a curly hair specialist in my area that would give great cuts and advice on getting my hair healthier and longer over the next year. I needed someone that would help me make that vision of perfectly cascading curls come true. When I started reading reviews in Western Mass, it became very clear that P.J. was the man for the job. P.J. lives up to all of the reviews I read. He has a great cutting style that is perfect for curly hair. He knows how to read my hair and has done an amazing job over the past 6 months getting my hair in great shape. He always has new suggestions that continue to improve my hair and allow it to grow long and strong. He advises me on which products to use, how to apply products, how best to blow dry and style, and how to tell what my hair might be needing at any moment in time. He has been putting highlights in my hair since my second appointment. In the past I have always had a hard time picking a good color for me, but were able to pick a perfect color together. He applies it in a way that makes people, go "wow, your hair looks great" but they don't really notice the highlights. They add the perfect amount of dimension without standing out by looking streaky or obvious. They are perfectly subtle and look amazing. They also do a great job of camouflaging the gray that began a bit more prominent then I would like. Since I am only four months and two appointments away from the big day, we are going to start working out my wedding hair style. He does not work on up-dos himself, but is recommending one of his salon-mates to style my hair for the big day. I trust him and his recommendation completely and know he will be right there providing his thought and ideas. Having found P.J. so early on, I know my hair is going to be nothing short of amazing in October and my hairdo is something I am not worried about in the least. I also need to mention his assistant, Bobbie Jo. She is wonderful as well and I'm sure will be amazing on her own when the time comes. If you are looking for an amazing stylist, curly hair OR straight hair, you really need to make an appointment with P.J. He knows his stuff and will not disappoint, I am sure of it.
