Going to the hair salon can turn anyone into a bag of mixed emotions. There is always a certain excitement tinged with doubt regarding the results. Will you like the work the hair stylist does? Moreover, there are plenty of mistakes that you can unwittingly make that could end up not only costing you monetarily but emotionally as well.
Being Unsure About Your Hair Cut
When you want to get a haircut, it is always better to have a definite idea about the kind of haircut you want to get. Being unsure about your haircut tends to mean that the hairstylist will also have a harder time understanding just what you want. The best option is to have an example such as a picture of the hair cut and style you are going for. Be sure to pick a style that is being sported by someone who has the same face shape as yours. This gives you and the stylist a more realistic idea about how the hair style will look on you.
Not Making Room for a Consultation
If you are in a hurry, you might end up ruining your hair styling session even more. Not only will you give the stylist little time to do anything, you also won’t be able to make room for a consultation session. Consultation sessions are important since they help give the stylist a sense of what you want out of the hair cut or the style. This also gives them time to evaluate your hair type and to figure out whether you how to go about your hair style in the best way possible too.
Being Quiet when There Is Something Wrong
We have all been there when the hair stylist has ruined our hair and we tell them that we love it, go home and burst into tears. This phenomenon is so common that there are even memes made about it. However, if you aren’t happy with the way anything is going, please speak up. The hair cut that you get from the stylist, is one that you are going to have to sport until it grows out or you go to a different stylist to get it corrected. At the end of the day, you are the one who has to pay double to get the style you wanted so be sure to address anything when it looks wrong.
They Won’t Always Remember
Unless you become a regular, it isn’t common for hairstylists to remember all their clients since they have to deal with so many throughout the day. You can’t just walk in and ask for the same stylist and hope that they will remember what they did to your hair. It’s partly your job too to remember and help guide your stylists. At the end of the day, they are people who are skilled in helping you look good in a certain manner and they can only do that if you help them to do that too.
