Beauty Salon Tips

Are you considering trying a new salon, new hairstylist or on the hunt for both in a new city?! Fear not! I’ve compiled a simple list on what to do and what to look for!

  • Let the stylist know your desires and goals
  • Feel free to ask a stranger! Often times we pass someone in public with amazing hair! They may help lead the way!
  • Bring a photo! Find photos of your desired style/cut/color of someone with a similar face shape, skin tone and hair type. This way you can expect more realistic results!
  • Once you go black you don’t go back! Don’t panic! I’m only kidding! A new, lighter color can be achieved. But have patience because it will take a few visits to safely make the change! Also be sure to share past chemical history like blonde color or relaxer services.
  • Let the stylist know if you are taking any medications (or if you have stopped taking any recently) and if you have had a recent surgery. Medications and anesthetics can have an adverse affect on your skin and hair. It can help the stylist determine what (if any) chemical services can be rendered. Also share any past medical history.
  • Check the salon score! In every salon there is a score card posted in a visible area. A score of 100 is great! However, if the score is lower there is a list that will state why the salon has lost points.
  • Find out salon policies. Many salons do not admit children unless they are being serviced. The salon may also have a late/cancellation policy out of respect of your time, the stylists time as well as other clients.
  • Speak up! Open communication is key to building a new client/stylist relationship!

I hope this list has been helpful!!!
