When planning to visit a salon to get your hairstyle changed, you must be prepared for it very well so that the visit goes smoothly without any troubles. This can include arranging for the visit in advance, to being honest about your styles needs and many other factors. Below, we take a look at them briefly.
Book The Visit In Advance
Remember to have the appointment booked at least a few days in advance. Most hairstylists usually have very busy schedules. As such, if you call for sudden appointments, then they might not be able to schedule you. This is especially true if it is a holiday season or other festive occasion when hairstylists will already be booked in full. And even if you manage to squeeze in an appointment in between their schedules, the hairstyling may not get done properly.
Bring Your Products
Your salon will be using top notch products for styling your hair. But some people are more comfortable if the stylist uses their products to style the hair. And if you are one of them, make sure you ask the stylist about it. If the salon is okay with your demand, then you can bring your products while visiting the stylist. This can be very important for people who may not be comfortable with some products. For example, if you are not exactly sure whether the salon products will result in an allergic reaction or not, it makes sense to only use the products which you are already comfortable with.
Know What You Want
Be sure to know what you want the hairstylist to do, and communicate it to them clearly. Otherwise, your hair may not be styled the way you were expecting. For example, if the stylist cuts the hair short and asks you whether this is enough, and you think that it needs to be shorter, then don’t just say that “make it shorter”. That is a very vague statement. Instead, take your hand, hold the hair and show the stylist up to what length the hair should be cut. By doing so, the stylist will not be confused as to how much to shorten the hair and will reduce it to the exact length you showed them.
Be Honest About Your Opinion
Be very honest to your hairstylist. If they cut it any specific way and you don’t like it, then feel free to say that you don’t like it. Don’t keep your mouth shut and feel pressured into accepting whatever the stylist says. In fact, you will be helping them serve you better by being honest with them. And a good stylist will always take criticism without feeling any negativity against you. After all, only if you are happy with the hairstyle can they continue to receive you as their client.
