stars_5   Naturally, I have fine, sparse, frizzy, grayish hair the color of a dead pigeon. Therefore, I am a long-time hair extension wearer and I am not ashamed to tell the world. Without them, I think I look like Gollum from Lord of the Rings.

I had a great salon back in Dallas, TX and I was sure I would not find a place I loved that much after I moved here to Vancouver, WA.

And then, practically in my back yard, I find Art of Hair with Mike and Irma.
Not only did I find it easy to talk to Mike and tell him all my ugliest secrets, but I found that I could trust his advice on trying a new type of extensions I had never heard of before. I especially had a hard time believing because the cost of the new hair was a bit less than I was used to paying back in Dallas.

(NOTE: It is worth a lot of money to me to not look like Gollum.)

Well, now I’m a believer in this new type of extensions. More than that, I’m a huge believer in Mike Bertish. He is joy! He is a delight! He really, really knows what he’s doing with hair! All of which comes in handy when you spend a long time around someone as he installs your new ‘do.

He also did highlights that turned out to match my new extensions exactly. Seriously. EXACTLY.

And Irma? She’s a gorgeous Corgi who is an expert in calming nervous clients like myself. She uses the “Big brown eyes + sigh + plus belly rub” method. Never fails.

In conclusion, I no longer look like Gollum. Good citizens of Vancouver who have to look at me, you are Welcome.

I have never been happier with my hair than I am right now, after going to Mike and Irma’s Art of Hair. – Jill H.
