When you come to Wildheart, your hair will become the lifeblood of your confidence, energy and style. It will course through your days and give life to your nights. Because life is better lived with a wild heart.
What we are + What we’re not
Wildheart is not a spa, nor does it offer spa services. And while most salon’s in the area want to relax and soothe us to sleep, we’re here to do something very different. At Wildheart, we’re here to wake you up; we’re here to help you feel more alive.
Why we exist
I’ve been standing behind a chair for over a decade, and along the way I’ve learned a few things. The most important is that your hair plays an enormously important role in your confidence and overall well-being – more so than most people give it credit. And this isn’t just my opinion. Research from Yale University has shown that being unhappy with our hair destroys our confidence in three ways: 1) it significantly lowers our self-esteem regarding our professional performance, 2) it increases our social insecurity, and 3) it intensifies our own self-criticism. That’s no way to live, if you ask me.
The good news however, is that the opposite also holds true. When you love your hair, you find yourself on top of the world – feeling confident, energized, young, sophisticated, powerful and totally ready to take control of your life. Yes, I’ve seen people do the craziest things when their hair is on-point and they’re feeling great about their image. Spontaneity gets resurrected, they say “yes” more and “no” less, they go after the promotion they didn’t think was possible, they get a date with the guy or girl they thought was out of their league, and generally speaking, live life with less boundaries and more liberation. This is how life should be lived, and it’s what inspires me to do what I do.
