"I like my own hair to feel as comfortable as wearing a favourite sweater and I aim to do the same for you." -Shai
That's me with pink hair: the time I bleached & dyed it myself.
Hi, I'm Shai and I opened Pome in 2007, for people who enjoy coming to a tiny, one-chair studio, and where I enjoy catching up with the clients I see every 6-8 weeks, while I customize current styles to work with their hair's texture (straight, wavy or curly) and its natural movement and tendencies. I'm also a reiki practitioner and a soul energy balancer.
The Small Talk
I concentrate on bringing the best out in your hair while also bringing out the best in our conversation. Your appointment is your time to relax and talk about what you like, tell your life stories etc. while I work. I won’t be talking about my personal life (BC born & bred) because that would be like being on a different talk show every hour and repeating the same story; I prefer a fresh conversation with each client. I also steer clear of oversharing and gossip. Please join me in the intention to brighten our moods and learn new things with topics about current events, books, art and music.
“This was a great experience: the talks, the music, the room, my hair. Thanks Shai.” -Alia, long, curly haircut & highlights, 2018
Eventually, even a favourite sweater sags when worn everyday. Most of my haircuts fall into place on average for 2 months. Make sure to come back before your hair feels like a limp sweater. See you at Pome, rhymes with home Shai, pronounced Shay
“I always have interesting conversations with you, Shai. I think a lot about them as I walk home.” -A.J., haircut every 8 weeks, 2018
