How To Get the Most From Your Salon Visit
Summer is officially here and you may be thinking about getting a new hairstyle to better fit the season. But there might be a couple problems with that, you’re not sure how to tell your stylist exactly what you want and you don’t want to leave the salon unhappy. We understand that it’s hard to put your desired results into words so here is some advice on how to communicate with your stylist to get the look you want.
Bring in a picture or maybe even a few. If you can find one that matches what you want, great! If you can find more in different angles, even better! Bring in photos even if your hair type isn’t exactly the same, your stylist can work around it. You should also bring pictures of how you don’t want it to look, it will only provide more info for your stylist to work off of.
As you think of them, write down specific details before your appointment. Have some adjectives that describe your look in mind. Examples are feathery, flowing, sharp, natural, etc. It’s easier to come up with accurate words to describe your desired look when you have spent some time thinking them over and not just trying to come up with them the day of the appointment.
Not everyone can look like a runway model, but that’s what makes us all so unique! You want your hairstyle to embrace your individuality, so know from the start that you likely won’t look just like the photo reference.
If you’re thinking the new style you’re wanting will be tricky for you to work with, let your stylist know that you would like some styling tips at the end. Many people are disappointed and let down when they can’t get their new hair to look the same the next day. Avoid this by learning from your stylist to copy the fresh-from-the-salon look.
Dress up a bit. No, you don’t have to go all out like you’re heading for the red carpet. Wear the type of clothing that you’ll most wear with your new hairstyle. Your clothing of choice reflects your individuality, which in turn affects the type of hairstyle that looks best. If you go into your appointment wearing sweats it will be hard to imagine what your hair will look like in your work attire.
