Honesty and consultations
The first step in getting the most out of your consultation, Honesty. It really is the best policy when it comes in receiving a proper assessment. Too many times you come across clients who want a look that is no bueno for them and the lifestyle they live.
Consider your relationship with your hair. Do you communicate daily with your hot tools? (Blow dryer, iron, wand ext.) Do you go with the flow? Do you braid and style it? Things to consider when you ask for a particular cut or style that may require commitment in order to maintain a certain look.
How often can you come into the salon? How much time can you spend at the salon? Be honest with yourself on why you want this look? Make sure your hair fits your estilo de Vida. Keep in mind what is your current situation and why you want this hairstyle. Sometimes bringing that old thing back is not such a good idea.
Photos son ideal! Three pictures is usually enough to get the message across and for you and your stylist to discuss about a look. !Be Careful! If the style you want is a particular technique that is not the norm and the stylist is not familiar with it or is not understanding maybe its best you seek someone. Your stylist should be able to see your vision and come up with something that works well for you. Remember the pictures are for inspiration. I want to have JLO hair but it will not happen right always depending on what you currently have. COMMUNICATE so you know what to expect.
Your Hairstylist is a full time professional. (Please make sure he/she is. Really does make a difference) He/She does hair all day everyday. Respect his/her judgment. If a look is simply not for you, do not take it personal and go with it. Honesty again is the best policy. I know myself, personally I would never do a look I didn’t think look good on a client because that’s my canvas. If my canvas looks good I look Good and I get more canvases. It’s like when I go out with my girls, if her dress or hair or makeup doesn’t look good I say something. If they don’t look good and we are together then that’s a bad look for me and for her and a big no no. A great stylist will give you an alternative.
