Today is Hairstylist Appreciation Day, and we at Sutra can’t think a group of people within the beauty industry more deserving of this amazing celebration! While it goes without saying that we greatly appreciate the amazing hairstylists in our industry each and every day of the year, on this day in particular we want to make sure all hairstylists are aware just how much we value their craft and admire their hard work and dedication. As a hair tool manufacturer, we are incredibly reliant on our relationships with hairstylists all over the world. The feedback you have given us regarding our products and ways we can better suit the needs of the modern hairstylist has proven invaluable, and it has served as a guiding force in our continual goal of hair tool innovation. We would have never been able to build such a large and passionate customer base without your support, and for that we are eternally grateful.
Below, we have featured some of our biggest supporters in the hairstyling community, along with their picks for their favorite Sutra products. You’ve likely seen their work on Instagram, and some of you have even been lucky enough to call yourselves a client of theirs!
Favorite Sutra tool? The Infrared Curing Iron. It gives me the most perfect long lasting waves every time + creates the most epic shine. It’s always my go to tool!
Favorite hair hack? Tossing in one curl going the opposite direction of the other curls when curling your hair will prevent the curls from all becoming one big sausage curl.
Why do you love being a hairstylist? I love making people feel like the best versions of themselves. Watching someone’s face light up with the biggest smile because you either took the time to spend with them or completely changed their look and you can see them glow from the inside out!

Favorite Sutra tool? Definitely my favorite tool is the IR2 Infrared Flat Iron, I use it for all of my curling and of course my smooth looks too.
Favorite hair hack? I think my favorite hair hack is to do a little twirl with my fingers immediately after each flat iron curl while it’s still hot. This gives a little bit of extra definition and allows me to form each curl exactly how I need/want it.

Favorite Sutra tool? My favorite tool from Sutra is the IR2 Infrared Flat Iron. I love this flat iron so much. It leaves the hair healthy but can give you any look. I’ve used it to enhance curtain bangs with a bounce, to seal in a chemical straightening treatment, and to even create curls for an updo. It’s a very universal tool.
Favorite hair hack? My go to style and favorite hair hack is mixing the Interchangeable Waver with the Infrared Curling iron to give a textured look. Switch rows between the tools then brush out for the ultimate textured natural style.

Favorite Sutra tool? My favorite tool is the IR2 Infrared Flat Iron! It heats up so quickly and evenly and is such a smooth tool. I can straighten, curl and wave with it. Obsessed.
Favorite hair hack? My favorite hair hack is when doing an updo on extra long or heavy hair, pull the underneath into a ponytail, braid it and put it in a bun to pin the top layers into! Gives security for the updo and helps remove some of the weight/bulk.

Why do you love being a hairstylist? At first it was to be the best and be the biggest stylist I could possibly be. My competitive nature came out in my 20s!! But as hit my 30s I realized all hair stylists have a gift. And that gift is to make people look and feel good about themselves on a daily basis. The feeling you get when you transform someone’s hair and they look in every mirror on the way out with a huge smile is amazing. It’s a truly powerful gift. One of my clients asked me once “Would you do hair for free if you won the lottery or the power ball?” And I said absolutely! It was at that moment I knew this was the career for me!!
Favorite Sutra tool? My most loved hair tool is the IR2 Infrared Flat Iron.
Favorite hair hack? My favorite hair hack that everyone knows about is dry shampoo. The real secret though, put it in before you go to bed! This will give the dry shampoo more time to absorb all the oils, if you need to you can always add a little more in the morning. I find this super useful having dark hair to avoid having grey powdery looking roots in the morning!
Why do you love being a hairstylist? The most satisfying thing about being a stylist is a good transformation! I love being able to enhance or completely change someone’s look with a color, cut, and style.

Why do you love being a hairstylist? I love being a hairdresser for many reasons, but the most rewarding thing about it all is seeing that smile on your client’s face after you show them their new hair you created for them. It literally makes my whole day. I absolutely love what I do.
Favorite Sutra tool? Every stylist has their favorite go-to tool. Mine is the IR2 Infrared Flat Iron. I’ve taken it on trips across the globe, given it a run at New York Fashion Week and always have it at my salon.
