Isn’t it great when you find a hairstylist and get to that point where you completely trust them with your hair? You know they are going to deliver amazing results each time, you feel confident and empowered leaving the salon. It’s also one less thing to worry about 😊
It can be a process to get to that stage and can be quite intimidating going to a new salon or meeting a stylist for the first time! So, I’ve put together some helpful tips to start you on your journey.
1. PRE-SERVICE CONSULTATION
It’s always a good idea to book in for a consultation before your appointment, especially if you’re looking to change your hair colour. Consultations are free and will give your stylist time to see your hair and do any necessary tests before your appointment like strand and skin tests. It will also give you and your stylist a chance to meet and get to know each other, discuss your likes and dislikes, what you are interested in and work out together exactly what needs to be done to achieve your final look. Your stylist will also be able to work out a rough price for you too.
Don’t worry if you don’t feel you need to book in for an in-depth consultation, say you’ve already visited the salon a few times. You will always get a great consultation every appointment where we will never assume what you want. We’re throwing the phrase ‘just the usual?’ straight in the bin!
2. PICTURE PERFECT
I’m not sure when the rumour started that hairstylists don’t like pictures brought in, but for me I love the fact my clients like to bring a picture of what they want. Try and bring an unfiltered picture. It gives your stylist an idea of what you like and what you don’t like. Its amazing how different everyone’s perception of tones are. Your stylist will then be able to determine exactly what you are after. Remember, a picture paints a thousand words.
3. CUTTING SHAPES
Again, with the pictures, if you find a style that you absolutely love but are unsure how to describe it, bring in a picture and your stylist can help you decide if it is right for you. They will take into consideration things like your face shape, manageability and maintenance.
A few tips that can really help you and your stylist start a wonderful journey on reaching your ultimate hair goals. Just remember, consultation is key and it will really help you find a stylist that is right for you 😊
