A Honolulu Dentist gets style!  Terrance Cleveland DDS

Dr Cleveland CutAs your Honolulu Dentist,  I know that healthy teeth make beautiful smiles.   Your smile is one of the first things people notice.  This study points out that a professional “polish” ALSO includes your hair.. a hairstyle verses a haircut.   So off I go to my favorite stylist;  Hillary Juliette , owner/operator of  Winam Hair Studio in Kaimuki.  Honolulu Best Dentist, Painless Dentist,

Winam CounterOne of Hawaii’s rising stars,   Winam Studio was recently listed by Elle magazine as one of the “top 100 salons in the United States in it’s August 2012 issue.  A  recent article in Honolulu’s Midweek  highlights her “green cut” which takes a half hour to complete and is environmentally friendly.  This waterless cut is a viable option.  It allows Hillary to see how the hair “lives” on each individuals head.

“When I first met Dr. Cleveland, he was sporting a do-it-yourself buzz.  You know, the get out of water, run a towel… and pau.  His hair had serious issues.  Dr. Cleveland’s hair is typical Asian… as it was growing out, his hair would stand up straight, and we would get this tennis ball head!  I wanted to create a look that would fit with his active life style, and still be professional for a dentist.” says Hillary. “Over several sessions, we worked together to create a great look. He has such a cool vibe. He is approachable and has such a great personality.  To me, he is the Jack Johnson of the dental world… I want that reflected in his style.”

Dr Cleveland StyleOk, I admit that pre-Hillary, my hair was hilahila, but I am converted.   What is great about her is that she takes the time to get to know you, and creates a personal look that works, and is reflective of who you are.  It is all about the conversation, and relationship.  Hillary grew up in Kapahulu before heading to Oakland and around the country for training… so she gets the “local” culture, yet can bring an “edginess” to her styles.  Appointments are easy with her online appointment scheduling system and her hours work well for before work since she will come in as early as 5:30am.  She is fun too, and did I mention great teeth?   “A great style and beautiful smile…. These both play a big role in appearance and health” says Hillary.  “Dr. Cleveland does my teeth, I work his hair.   It’s a mutual thing.”
