So many clients go to the salon with an idea in their head— an idea that they’ve discussed over and over with their mum, sister or best friend. Then they go into the salon and become confused, preoccupied and bewildered by all the advice that they end up making a decision that just doesn’t feel right.
If something doesn’t sit well with you, speak up. Your hairstylist won’t mind, in fact, they want you to leave the salon looking and feeling great. So here are some tips on how to get the most out of your next salon visit.
- Your Haircut
Let’s think about this for a second. What was your decision before you entered the salon? Did you really want to go short-short with a long tail in the front, painted orange? Okay, so if that wasn’t your idea, tell your hairstylist what exactly you want. If you’re not sure whether it will work, just ask their advice. Remember, they are professionals: they know what styles suit particular looks.
Keep in mind that their suggestions should be taken as such. Of course, most of the time whatever they suggest will look great, but you want to make sure you’re still happy with it by the time you get home. Remember, stylists aren’t in the business of messing with people’s hair. Hairstylists take it to heart if their clients are unhappy, so trust them. Ask them why they think your hair should be cut in one way or another. Let them explain that, for example, a shorter side-line will help bring out your cheekbones, or a fringe will help shorten your forehead.
Also, take into account your character. What is your style? If, for example, you’re a young woman who’s a tattoo artist then having a more edgy look is the perfect fit. Your hairstylist will be your best friend when it comes to making your hair suitable to your look, your style and your attitude.
- Your Hair Colour
If you have naturally blonde hair, should you go black? Or vice versa?It’s such a big decision which hair colour to go with, if you even need a new one at all. Always keep in mind to trust your colourist.They’ve been doing this for years and know what results to expect. They also know which colours would work best with various natural colours, as well as the texture of your hair.
Ask for their advice about what colour would suit your face, or what colour would bring out your eyes or your natural features?
Also, bear in mind that colour comes with a keep-up schedule. You will have to visit your salon more often than perhaps you’d like, as you need to maintain your new colour. Remember, that you don’t just need to stick to the plain colours you see everywhere. Be who you are. Go for a colour and a highlighted extra that makes you excited.
In the end, it’s up to you, but advice from your hairstylist and colourist will go a long way. For more information or if you want to book an appointment, call (03) 9827 6899 or email us today.
