No matter where you go to get your hair cut, you should always walk out with a hairstyle that you love. From doing research, communicating effectively, and consider your needs, you will be able to walk out of the hair salon on cloud nine. If you’ve walked out of a salon less than thrilled with your new style a number of ties, here are our tips for ensuring you never leave unsatisfied again.
1. Research Potential Stylists on Social Media
Have you found a stylist or have been recommended one by a friend? Before committing, research that particular stylist on social media. This will give you a better idea of their personality, the way they cut, and overall style when it comes to styling their client’s hair. If you’re not impressed, look elsewhere!
2. Save Photos of the Cuts You Love
Describing the hairstyle you are itching for to your stylist is hard and typically ends in miscommunication. Instead, show your stylist photos of the cuts you love! You can find these images by stalking Pinterest, grabbing photos of your favorite celebrity haircuts, and even taking to magazines.
3. Consider the Hair Styles of the People You Work With
If you’re working in a professional setting, walking in with bright colored hair and a crazy new style might be frowned upon. So, when you’re thinking about changing up your look, consider the hairstyles of the individuals you work with. This will give you a good idea of how much personality you can put into your hair without getting weird looks and comments by co-workers or even your boss.
4. Be Firm With the Amount of Hair You’d Like Taken Off
One of the biggest issues we hear is that too much hair has been cut off. When discussing your cut with your stylist, be very firm about the length in which you would like your hair to be. Your stylist will do whatever you want, just make sure you’re both on the same page.
5. Cut or Color First?
If you’re going for your normal cut and color, you can do them both in one appointment. But, if you’re going for a drastic new cut and color, start off with the new cut first to give yourself time to get used to it. Once you’ve taken it all in for a few weeks, schedule your appointment to color your hair.
6. Be Honest with the Amount of Effort You Put Into Your Hair
A fun new cut that you saw on Pinterest always sounds fun, but more often than not, a lot of effort has to go into styling your hair to get that “Pinterest” look. When you’re talking to your stylist about the type of style you want (don’t forget pictures!), run them through your typical hair routine. With this extra information, they will be able to put their own twist on the style to ensure that you are still able to achieve a great look with the routine you already have in place.
