So many of you bounce around from hairstylist to hairstylist because you can't seem to get the style, color or care that you want. Hair appointments can be nerve wrecking for many reasons but mainly because you don't know how your hair is going to turn out. Take a look at a few tips that I put together to help you get the BEST OUT OF YOUR HAIR APPOINTMENT
1) Choose a licensed professional
Being licensed does not guarantee that the stylist knows every style in the book but it does gives you some level of assurance that the stylist has the basic knowledge on how to maintain the integrity of your hair
2)Do your research.
Look through the stylist pictures, website and watch their videos if they have any. Give them a call and schedule a consultation. Ask as many question as you can before moving forward
3)Take a picture of what you want
A) Visuals are very important when telling people what you want. Asking your stylist for layers can land you face framing layers instead of layers for volume.
B) Second thing to remember when bringing in a visual is to know what you don't want. This is more important that knowing what you want and can increase your chances of having a more successful appointment
C)Third thing to remember is to be realistic. The style will not look the exact same as the picture because the picture will most likely be of another woman with different features and the style in the picture was also most likely done by another stylist. It is unreasonable to expect that from a hair stylist.
4)Tell your stylist what you would like, not how to do it.
So many people walk into a salon not trusting a stylist. If you don't trust the stylist,
A) DON'T SIT IN THEIR CHAIR!!!
B) DON'T SIT IN THEIR CHAIR AND TELL THEM HOW TO DO THEIR JOB!!!
