Don’t Let Fear Hold You Back from Changing Your Hair Style

Remember when you getting ready to go to kindergarten – you were excited and fearful at the same time? That’s the way a lot of people feel about changing their hair style or color. They want to, but they’re afraid.

That’s why we’re here! The stylists at Akari – some of the most sought after in the Portland area – are here to coach you to attain your best look. Our senior stylist, Peter-John, sums it up best – someone feels beautiful when they have amazing hair.

Let Portland’s hair care pros introduce you to an easy hair care regimen tailored to your specific routine and lifestyle. We can show you how to add a little bit of lift (for your hair and your mood!), pump up the volume, create great texture, plus give you tips on how you can keep your hair looking fabulous in between your regular visits.

Low Maintenance Hairstyles are Perfect for Busy Teachers

Messy pigtail buns are incredibly easy to do and a fun, low-maintenance look perfect for the classroom. A no-fuss way to add a touch of chic, even on your busiest days! Here’s how:

1. Part hair in the middle and make two high ponytails.
2. Pull your hair half-way through the ponytail holder to create two separate looped buns.
3. Pull random wisps of hair around the ponytail holder, secure with bobby pins.
4. Adorn with bows or decorative hair pins to fit your day!

There are plenty of other easy hair styles – simple chignon, basic braids, flower braids, low updo – and our amazing hair stylists here at Akari would love to help you choose just the right style to frame your best features.
