Hairdresser and hairdressing instructor Mimi Pang and stylist Lisa Rios from Melbourne’s hair salon, Tootsie Barber Shop, are here to help guide you through the process of getting your hair done and making sure your hair looks its best.
We spoke to Mimi about the benefits of having hair done, what the benefits are, and what to look for when it comes to hair styling.ABC: Your hair is your most important asset.
You’re not going to have it for long if you don’t care for it.
Do you think you’re going to look better without it?
Mimi: My hair is the most important thing in my life.
I have to be honest with you.
I’ve never been able to get my hair done because it just doesn’t look good and I know I don’t look like a good person without it.
So I think the best thing to do is be kind and give your hair the attention it deserves and be patient.
Lisa: If you’ve got a problem, you can ask someone else.
You don’t have to ask me, but if you’re worried about the problem and you think it’s an issue you’re having, you need to get it checked out.
I think it has to be looked at by a professional before you do anything else.
The way that I look is my style.
I just don’t use any chemicals or anything like that.
I wear natural oils and lotions, which are all natural.
I also wash my hair every day, because I’m not a hair person and I’m just a person who loves hair.
So it’s a big deal for me.
You’ll be surprised how many women, men and kids who don’t wear their hair out every day get really, really messed up.

MIMI: I started my own salon at a very young age and I still do it today.
I still make people laugh.
I do hair for a living.
I get a lot of compliments for it and people always ask if I’m a hairdressor.
Lisa RIO: My first job was in a hair salon in Melbourne.
I started working there in 2005 and I’ve been working at the same place ever since.
I used to be a haberdasher, and I also worked as a stylist at the salon for a little while before I decided to come here to Toots and give it a go.
You just have to go and do it.
I’m going to be working here full-time, which means I’m also going to get a salary from Toots.
I will be earning about $300 a week.
What makes me happy is that I get to wear my hair in the front of the salon and I get the opportunity to meet my customers and have some conversations with them.
I am able to show them how beautiful their hair is and that they can be proud of it.
ABC (AU: I’ll be wearing my hair up here at the moment, thanks Mimi.)ABC (UK): What’s your favourite hair colour?
MIRI: That’s a hard one to answer.
I can’t say that I’m an expert on it.
There are a lot people out there who are like me.
They’re like, I want to look like this.
So my favourite colour is pink.
I love that pink!
Lisa: I also love red.
I would say red hair is my favourite hair.
I’d say reds are my favourite colours.
It gives you the feeling that you are being watched.
I’ll probably wear red a lot because I want people to see that I am who I am.
ABC: What do you think is the biggest misconception people have about hairdression?
MAMI: I think people think that the hairdo is a dress or a look and that you need it for social or to work.
But the truth is, the hairlo is just a part of your natural look.
You should always keep your hair loose.
I really don’t think about it.
It’s a part and I just wear it like any other part of my natural look so that I can look beautiful.
I don’ know if you’ve noticed but I have a lot less hair on my face now.
Lisa, I love your hair!
I love how you have that little little cut of hair that goes to the side of your face, just above your eyebrows.
You look really good without it, but you still have a good natural look to you.
You get that little cut and it gives you that little bit of volume in your face.
It makes you look
