A good hairstyle helps a person feel smarter and more accomplished. According to studies, people satisfied with their hairstyle feel more capable of performing their functions than those having a bad hair day. This is where hairstylists use their hair clippers, brushes and hair irons to save the day. Famous American film actress Joan Crawford once said, “The most important thing a woman can have – next to talent, of course, is her hairdresser.” Few women would disagree with that!
Hairstylists and hairdressers work extremely hard to give their customers the best look on their hair. It takes hours and hours of cutting, shampooing and colouring to achieve the hairstyle requested by each customer. That’s why hairdressers can experience some frustration with customers whose hair needs lots of fixing before the actual styling.
Hairstylists appreciate the customers who make a conscious effort to make their jobs easier. If you want to get the best service possible, you need to work with the stylist. Here are a few pointers on how you can show your love to your stylist before turning up for your appointment.
Know What You Want
Whether you’re a stylist’s regular customer or a new one, be sure to do your homework. Each client should be sure about the style they want and how they want it done. Check with the salon before your visit that they can deliver the cut you want, the way you want it. When you go for your appointment, bring a photo of the specific style you want and show it to your stylist.
Knowing the style that suits you is also something hairstylists find helpful. Salons welcome a client with a strong sense of self-awareness, as they can just suggest minor tweaks to enhance your chosen style. Collaborative work like this between a client and hairstylist will always result in better outcomes.
Bring Neat And Clean Hair
Arriving for your appointment with clean, tidy hair is essential if there are to be no delays to your styling session. It will give the stylist some idea as to how you would like to present yourself through your hair. On top of that, arriving with sweaty, dirty hair (on your way back from the gym, perhaps) may cause your hairstylist to make changes to the style you want. In addition, clients should not arrive with wet hair so stylists can skip the blow-dry before even starting.
Take Note Of The Hair Care Products You Use
The hair care products you use may cause damage to your hair. Some of these products might have made your hair brittle, dry or stiff. Hairstylists know how to counter these problems, but you need to let your stylist know what you’ve been using in your hair so that they know what they’re dealing with.
Keep An Open Mind
Carlina Ortega, hair colourist at Rita Hazan Salon in New York, suggests that clients come to their appointment with an idea for their hair. At the same time, they must be open to expert advice as what they have in mind might not be the best choice for them. She further adds that clients should be flexible and talk with their stylist to ensure the best style.
As the saying goes, “Life isn’t perfect, but your hair can be.” Most people get their confidence from their hair and let their hair “do the talking.” A visit to the hair salon can set you up for weeks, but to get the most from the visit you need to go prepared. Following the tips outlined in this article will help you with that.
