How many times have you been to salon and went home unhappy and unsatisfied with the service? It’s ironic that the purpose of going to salon, and that is to look beautiful, becomes opposite sometimes. Instead of leaving the salon happy, you often find yourself in front of the mirror in frown face. Often, the reason is miscommunication or your stylist is off duty at the time of your visit.
Here are some tips to avoid miscommunication with your hairstylist.
Be specific. If you plan to sport a short style, don’t just say you want short hair style. Tell your hairstylist the exact length. If you want half inch or two inches, say so and keep on eye on what your hairstylist is doing.
If you have an allergy, tell the salon at once. It is okay to bring your own products. If you have an allergy to a certain powder, tell them before dusting the powder around your neck. You may bring your own brand like clubman talc. I have been practicing that specially when I want my hair colored. My hair is kind of sensitive and salon products are not really fine with me so I bring mine.
Bring a specific photo of the style that you want. That way, your hairstylist wouldn’t have a hard time figuring out from heaven the hairstyle that you want.
