24. A balanced beauty creates happiness and comfort. I love beauty when it is not to the point of obsession, but more about the love and comfort of the individual. When it comes to creating a balanced look you must measure everything connected to the head & body. To simply this process I broke it down into Five Pillars. 

#1 – Head and Body Proportions
#2 – Bone Structure of the Head
#3 – Fabric of the Hair
#4 – Grade of Sensitivity
#5 – Face Shape

In the following questions we will go through each pillar guiding you on how to measure yourself. Once you understand your five pillars you'll never have a bad hair day again ;)

The proportion of the head and body plays a huge role in what kind of 
blow-dry style will enhance your features and your beauty. In general, either 
your head size is proportional, smaller than, or, larger than your body. 
* To find out which head size you have simply stand in front of the mirror in your underwear and put your hair into a high bun. Now, look at yourself and your head in comparison to your body. Do you think your head size is... 


25. Please check off any head and body proportions that concern you:


[_]   Cover ears

[_]  Show ears

[_]  cover neck length

[_elongate neck length

[_cover neck hump

[_cover wide shoulders

[_widen appearance of narrow shoulders

[_minimize full bust

[_maximize small bust

[_Appear taller

[_Appear shorter



26. Would you like to add clip-on extensions?



27. Why do you want to add clip-on extensions?


[_Too add crown volume

[_To add length

[_To add density and thickness

[_All of the above


28. How you put on your makeup can correct your face shape the same applies to hair-styling with your head shape. To enhance any head shape you can choose to add more or less volume to your hairstyle. Because your hair is covering your head shape you don't know what it looks like until you feel it. The following diagrams show most of the different kinds of head shapes you can have. Feel the shape of your head and choose which one you think is most like yours. (The areas where you see red means the head shape is smaller and the hair needs to be emphasized and blue means the head shape is larger and needs to be minimized.)


29. "Fine" hair type refers to the thickness or diameter of the individual strand of hair. It is possible for clients to have fine type and thick hair density, or coarse hair type and thin hair density. 

What is your hair type?  Choose one strand of your hair and look at it. If it is fine, it will be thinner than a piece of thread. If it is medium, it will be the same thickness as a piece of thread. If it is coarse, it will be thicker than a piece of thread. Choose from the following:


30. What is your hair density? "Thin" hair density refers to the overall density of the hair follicles across the scalp. The opposite of thin hair is thick hair. You can measure your hair density in two different ways: If you have short hair, you can look at the root of the hair and see how many strands there are per square inch (pictures of density are below). Or, you can put your hair in a ponytail and then measure the diameter of your hair. From these three hair density examples which are you?

31. What is your hair character (Shape of your hair shaft)?

32. Do you have any cowlicks/ patterns of hairline root growth on your scalp? (Cowlicks are hair that grows in a direction different from the rest, and that resists being combed flat). Where on your scalp do you have cowlicks? Or, do you have any stubborn baby hair waves along the front hairline and nape area that resist when styling? Choose all that apply.


[_Front  Hairline Cowlick

[_Middle of the head Cowlick

[_Nape hair line Cowlick

[_Front/ Back baby hairline waves

37. Do you think your hair shaft is damaged? If it is damaged/sensitized, what grade of sensitivity is it? Use the below diagram and do the following test to find your grade: Run your finger down a few strands of hair from root to the ends. Do this for the front, top and nape area of your hair. If your hair feels smooth to the touch and the cuticle is sealed your grade is S1/ S2 Healthy. If it feels very rough and is breaking at the mid length and ends then your grade is S5 Very Damaged and needs immediate attention.

[_]  S1-Very Healthy (smooth to touch)

[_]  S2-Healthy (still smooth to touch)

[_]  S3-Slightly Damaged (Moderately raised cuticle & slightly rough to touch.)

[_]  S4-Damaged (Excessively raised cuticle with poor elasticity. Re-tangles when combed wet. The hair considered damaged.)

[_]  S5-Very Damaged (The hair is breaking apart and is extremely damaged. Hair feels mushy or slimy when wet. Needs immediate attention.)
