May Spotlight - Natalie Hejl - Colorist
After 9 years of doing color and 3 years at Prive, I caught up with Natalie to see why color, how she landed at Prive and what gets her going.
There are what seems a million salons in town. What made you want to work at Prive? What drew you?
I really like that is high end and hip. It had a great atmosphere and seemed like a fun place to work. I knew some of the people that worked here. They were really good at what they did and they loved coming to work every day.
What do you think separates Prive from other salons?
For me, it’s the education I would say. We are provided with lots of classes and education on the latest techniques and trends. The Prive philosophy is to continually get better at what we do for our clients. It is also one of the only true“high end” salons in town that caters to a clientele that appreciates the value and quality service they get.
After cosmetology school, there are many directions you can go. Why color?
I like colors and painting. There are similarities in coloring hair. It is the creativity part.
I saw on the website that you love your dogs.
Yes! Cocoa. Everybody knows Coco. He’s my Palmeranian. He’s 15 ½ years old and is a Senior Citizen. He’s just cute and I love him. Taz is my other dog. He’s the bigger dog. I had Coco first.
What do you like to do when you are not working?
I love the beach. Going out on the boat. The Sun. I like to read books and paint too.
Colorminded is a new service you are providing. Why should your clients come in and get the ColorMinded treatment?
This treatment really seals in color, adds shine and makes your hair vibrant. The hair color remains true and vibrant for up to 40 shampoos! I love it.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would go?
