How does my hair get and stay that way? Every six weeks he creates with my hair a brand new look.

My amazing husband treats me to a hairstyle makeover by the most talented hairstylist ever.

Stephen Anderson of New Identities Salon is that masterful hairstylist. He uses his magical hands to make my overgrown hair look terrific again.

How did I find Stephen Anderson?

I admired a woman’s hair at South Bay Church. She clued me in about Stephen.

Cutting my hair is no easy task. This thick, naturally wavy, chemically untreated hair of mine wants to do its own thing.

Stephen skillfully maneuvers it into a style following the natural wave while doing a fabululous thinning. He knows exactly what this unruly tangle of graying, healthy hair to help me manage it easily till the next cutting six weeks later.

In the late 90’s, Stephen distributed Redken high end hair products to an area of Detroit, Michigan.

His decision to become a hair stylist led him to the Redken Hair Academy in Tampa, Florida. After graduating, he found New Identities Hair Studios.

A certified Redken Haircolorist, Stephen considers hair coloring his specialty. Stephen attends courses every three months to learn new coloring techniques and hairstyles.We’re the grateful recipients of his tremendous hairstyling expertise.

New Identities boasts three locations in the Tampa area. Stephen Anderson is at New Identities South Shore location, 10639 Big Bend Road, Riverview in the Summerfield Shopping Center near Panera Bakery.

Stephen and his wife share their lives with two canines; Griz, a big crazy husky, and Mabel, half basset/half beagle. 

Do I ever want to change hairstylists?


I found a winner!

Panama Haircut

We missed my August haircut before our trip out-of-country because of over-scheduling. Our hostess at Park Eden B&B made me an appointment with a hair stylist in Valle de Anton, Panama. We arrived on Thursday. I went to the town beauty parlor the next day for my surprise haircut.

My husband and daughter found an online photo of Jamie Lee Curtis. Her graying hair’s bobbed very close to her head It’s about an inch long in back with a bit longer on top. I wore my hair like that during my thirties.

Although not wanting to go there again, hubby wanted me to have it cut very short. Unusual for a man to think that way. Right? My husband’s not like other men. He has an independent mind like no other.

I steeled myself watching in the mirror as the haircutter 6did her skillful job. She cut it around my ears. When she finished, my happy surprise mirrored the pleased expressions on the faces of my family.

Everyone loves my new look, although it isn’t new to me. It does make me feel younger. I’m happy when someone says I look that way.

Washing my hair in the shower takes less time than before. Now it’s even shorter than previously. Much easier to care for. I call it “Wash-and-Wear Hair.”

Mom used to say when I had a disappointment, “Don’t worry, puppy, your tail will grow.” That’s how I need to view my short haircut. I’m not concerned though. Maybe it needs to stay this way.

I like it!
