Welcome to Ian Salon Sarasota
The Wake & ShakeTM is not one particular style but a different approach to cutting hair. Like most hairstylists, Ian begins the cut as a precision haircut (Ian is Vidal Sassoon trained) but where other hairstylists then pick up a round brush and dryer and force a shape into the hair, Ian does not. It is the typical hairstylist’s ability to force a shape with the round brush that enables them to get away with an inferior cut. The client leaves the salon happy that day but after shampooing can never get the hair to look the same. That is because the stylist never really cut the shape into the hair. When you only cut hair wet – you are cutting blind. It is essential to cut dry as well.
Ian simply blows wet hair around using only his hand. It is only after the hair is dry that the critical cutting can be done. Now Ian can see the natural growth patterns and idiosyncrasies of your hair. Since he is not using a round brush, if he didn’t truly cut the shape in, you would not see it. The result is a truly superior cut.
For those clients with especially difficult growth patterns or wavy/curly hair, Ian recommends coming in with clean dry hair so that he may see the hair in it’s truest state.
With the Wake & Shake what you see is what you get. Easy, Stylish Sophisticated.
