Stylist Spotlight: Lola Omotosho


LJ:  Tell us about yourself.  How long have you been in the industry and what inspired you to start doing hair?
LO: I've been doing hair for over 11 years. It's a skill and talent that I was blessed with at an early age. It started out a hobby but as my skills improved, I took it more seriously.  I always enjoyed giving people a new look and making them feel better! I finally decided to pursue my goals of owning a salon before graduating high school and pride myself in my effort to bring my clients the latest, innovative styles and techniques through continued education classes and hands on training.

LJ:  What is your specialty?
LO: My specialties are extensions and cuts, but I am familiar with basic color techniques as well.

LJ:  What is your favorite style to cut?
LO:  I love to cut anything that allows for versatility especially short cuts, I want to be able to style it straight and piecey one week and do curls and waves the next week


LJ:  What are some of the most popular cuts that your clients ask for?
LO:  My clients love the bob whether its your traditional bob or asymmetrical cut. I also have clients that like to channel hair trendy celebs like Keyshia Cole and Rihanna

LJ:  Do you recommend women who wear extensions exclusively have natural or relaxed hair?
LO:  It varies depending on the type of extension, for example, for sew-ins I prefer the client not to have a relaxer to ease tension on the hair being braided.

LJ:  How long do you recommend a woman wear her sew in?
LO:  I tell my clients sew-ins should be worn 2-3 months. Anything longer than that can cause matting and hair breakage. Even though the style may still look good, you'll want to take down the extensions and thoroughly cleanse the scalp, deep condition the hair with hair treatments and hair masks, and trim.

LJ:  What is the key to making a sew in last as long as possible?
LO: The key is not only the proper foundation but also using quality hair and wrapping your install up or sleeping on a satin pillow case.

LJ:  What is the most important thing a woman can do for her hair?
LO: The most important thing a woman can do for her hair is to get on a hair care regimen that includes trims, conditioning treatment, and occasional "stress-free" periods for your hair

LJ:  What is the worst thing a woman can do to her hair?
LO:  Not following a hair care regimine.

LJ: Where can we find you on the web?
