We’ve all come out of the hair salon with results we can’t stand.
At our salon, we make every effort to understand exactly what our clients want and deliver it with excellence. It’s always a team effort between the client and the hairdresser, which means you have a lot of power! As the client, there are some things you can do to ensure your stylist understands what you need.
Share a bit about yourself
When you’re getting to know a new hairstylist, it’s a great idea to share what you do for a job and what you enjoy during your downtime. Knowing more about your life will give the stylist more context about what you want. For example, if you say you want a “cool” hairstyle, it can mean almost anything. Sharing yourself will help. If you have a good hairstylist, he or she will be able to take your information and enhance your look.
Bring photos of what you want (and what you don’t want)
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and any hairstylist will absolutely agree. Pictures are especially effective when it comes to hair length and color. They don’t leave as much room for misunderstanding, increasing your chances to get the result you want. We also recommend you bring pictures of what you don’t want. When you’re looking for pictures, look at sources beyond red carpets. Many times, those Hollywood hairstyles have been perfectly crafted to last a few hours. Widen your field to catalogs, street style photos, and even the salon’s Instagram account.
Dress for the style you want
You send visual cues to your hairstylist the minute you step through the salon door. You don’t need to dress to the nines, but dressing in a way that will fit your hairstyle may be the little touch that gets you your dream hairstyle. You’ll give your hairstylist the chance to see your unique style, which is essential when it comes to delivering something that fits you.
