I’m not a super high-maintenance guy, but I do take pride in making sure I keep my hair and beard looking fresh and trimmed up. Part of that whole process is, of course, going to see a professional for a regular haircut. I’ve gone through the endless cycle of visiting places around town, and they’ve always gotten the job done, but nobody has ever really WOWED me.

Until earlier this year.

This spring, I swung in to BAM Style, just down the street from the station here on Central Entrance for a haircut. I can tell you I honestly left really impressed. First, the staff is super knowledgeable. Sitting in the chair for the first time at BAM, my stylist asked where I usually get my hair cut. I told her I didn't really have a consistent place or stylist I visited. She smirked, and said she could tell. She explained a lot of the walk-in, sit down places don't always pay attention to the fine details of a person's hair thickness or other characteristics, all of which play a role in how your hair should be cut and styled.

The big reason for that is you might run into the same stylist from time to time, but they really don't get the consistent chance to really get to know what your hair is like and what it naturally wants to do. Being someone that has never had a specific stylist, this was a new concept, but it made a lot of sense.

As I've gone back since then, that knowledge of my hair and my styling goals has made going back a breeze. No more having to remember exactly how to explain what you want the stylist to do! I can just sit down, and my stylist gets right down to the task of taking care of my hair. How she remembers all of that between visits, I have no idea. Gotta hand it to her, though!

As I've continued to build that relationship with my stylist, it has also eliminated the awkward small talk you always get the first time you sit in a stylist's chair. Instead of questions like "So, what do you do for work?" every time, we can talk about stuff that's actually fun to talk about.

Needless to say, while I was once oblivious to the value of having a stylist, I am now hooked! Not only because of that convenience, but also because the whole BAM staff has such a great approach to each customer.
