HAIR // Kyle Krzeszak
Working from Flip Salon (Ferndale), Kyle has been rocking hair for over a decade, specializing in precision cutting for both men and women. Kyle is an interesting breed of hairstylist in that he’s a total pro without the ego, a real down-to-earth personality, who cares about his clients.
Kyle’s advice: “Don’t wash it everyday. Wash every other day, because natural oils are good for your hair. When you over wash, you strip away those good oils that can make the scalp produce too much oil to compensate. Also, make sure you like your hair before you leave the chair. I tell people my work is under warrantee. If the hair isn’t lying right, or the color fades too fast, let me know and I’ll make it right. Hair is not an exact science. Feedback is always good, if you don’t tell me, I won’t know.”
