Home Hair Care Tips How to Find a Hair Stylist
No matter what the condition of your hair is, have your hair styled by an experienced hair stylist. Irrespective of the volume and type of your hair, an experienced stylist will make the most of it. Finding a good hair stylist may take some searching, but it's worth the time invested to locate the right one for your look and hair. Follow these steps to find an experienced hair stylist.
- The best way is to ask someone who has a great cut. Ask your friends about their stylists. If you see someone on the street who has a haircut you admire, don't hesitate to ask for the stylist's name. It’s still better if you ask someone on the street or at the grocery. You need not feel embarrassed - the person will probably find it quite flattering.
- Build a list of recommended stylists.
- You can try Yellow Pages as a starting point for finding experienced hair stylists.
- If you decide to switch stylists, allow yourself some time to find a new stylist. The best way to locate a trusted new hair stylist is to ask for referrals. Friends and family references are recommended. While searching for an experienced hair stylist, don’t forget to mention about your hair type, hair problems, and constraints related to location and cost.
- Be sure that they are up to date on the latest trends. Walk up to a stylist in the salon who isn't doing anything and ask him/her the tools he/she uses. Imagine your plumber not knowing how to use a wrench. If they are not particular about their tools, then turn back and go. Pick a salon with a good reputation.
- Schedule a free consultation. Once you've found a salon that you like, make an appointment for a hair consultation with the stylist you are evaluating. Some stylists may pressure you to let them style your hair on the first visit. But it’s not good to receive any services until you're absolutely sure that the stylist is right for you and your hair.
- Make sure the salon looks clean and orderly.
- Find out as much as you can about that particular stylist like how long he/she has been in business and more.
- Inquire about the stylist’s academic records and the institution.
- What condition is his/her hair in? Evaluate the stylist's skill by his/her own haircut.
- Note how does the hairstylist present herself/himself? In hair stylizing the fact is - What you see is what you get.
- Note whether the stylist asks questions about your hair history. It will also give you a peek into his/her personality.
- If you are going to pay for a service, make sure you get your money's worth.
- During your initial consultation check all the prices that the stylist charges for different hair care services. Find out what products they recommend. Ask the stylist about his/her policy if you are not satisfied with the service. Also ask if he/she will do complimentary touch ups or bang trims.
- You hair style and care for hair health may be destroyed by the wrong hair style. So, ask the stylist exactly what type of hair cut he/she has planned if you are going to experiment with your hair.
