Follow these professional tips and walk out of the salon smiling:
Find Mr. Right: Make sure that you find the perfect hair stylist for your needs. What works for one person doesn’t work for another. Ask around, do some detective work, check out their website.
Visit the salon: Is it too chaotic or too low key? Are women leaving with Victoria Beckham cuts or Amy Winehouse bee hives? If you don’t like what you see, walk out. FAST!
Schedule smart: An early appointment is always your best choice. Even the best hairstylist will be at their best first thing in the morning. Imagine how you would feel after standing on your feet for 8 hours!
Have a chat: Make an appointment for a consultation if you are planning for a whole new look or hairstyle. And for goodness sake, bring a photo with you of the hairstyle that you like. Your description without a photo may not translate to the stylist exactly what you want.
Stop reading: Put down that magazine and pay attention to what is going on. If your eyes are glued to the latest gossip news instead of the mirror, you may be in for a shocking surprise!! Watch as they cut, and speak up if you need to.
Ask for a re-do: There is absolutely nothing wrong with going back to the hair salon if you hate the cut and didn’t get what you wanted. Just be prepared to explain specifically what you do not like.
