My name is Anya Connelly from Hanover, MA and I’m a stylist at SalonCapri Dedham.
How many years have you been a part of the SalonCapri team?
I have been a part of the SalonCapri family for four years now.
Where did you study previously?
I received my hair education and training at TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy in Cranston, RI.
What do you specialize in?
I specialize in color – I especially love doing balayage and making fun changes to hair color! I also do women and men’s haircuts, updos, extensions and straightening treatments.
What inspired you to become a stylist?
Ever since I was a little girl I had a passion for hair. I loved everything about the beauty industry and I couldn’t picture myself doing anything else.
Which favorite hair care product has been in constant rotation for you behind the chair?
Behind the chair the one product I always seem to use is Kérastase Nectar Thermique. I love this formula because it makes the hair easy to manage and smooths strands while serving as a heat protectant for blow drying.
Which celeb haircut and/or color are you loving right now and why?
I love Hilary Duff’s chin length blunt bob! Her fabulous blonde balayage with roots makes this look even better.
What are your favorite hair colors or style trends right now?
My favorite hair colors right now would be any type of hair painting, from subtle and sun-kissed blondes to intense and bold color – you really can’t go wrong!
What advice would you give a client who wants to try something new or different with their hair?
If a client wants to try something new and different with their hair and it’s realistic, I’m all for the change! My advice to the client would be to take it step by step and gradually transition into the new look. That way you’re achieving what you want slowly, so the hair stays healthy and it’s not too drastic of a change.
What hair products should everyone have in their arsenal at home?
Everyone should own L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Next Day Hair. It’s amazing! This spray gives the perfect amount of texture and hold for any look – long or short, you’ll love the results.
