Getting your hair cut can definitely be a process, and of course you’re putting a LOT of trust in the hairstylist you’ve chosen to do your hair. While we don’t often think that much about getting our hair cut, we’ve found that there are five things your stylist wants you to know that you probably don’t know. If you’re getting your haircut anytime soon, you’re going to want to keep reading to make sure you know what your stylist wants you to know…but may not actually tell you.
1. Don’t Make Your First Appointment With a New Stylist On a Saturday
Wondering why? Well, Saturdays are typically the busiest days for hairstylists, and if you’re seeing a new hairstylist for the first time you’re going to want to make sure that you have a little extra time to have some conversation about what you’re looking to get out of your haircut before actually getting started. But scheduling that initial appointment on their busy day, doesn’t give them that time to really spend with you since odds are they’re pretty slammed with appointments
2. Odds Are They Offer Some Deals
While they may not always offer up the information, odds are, you can find some ways to save some money on your hair services. More specifically, if you get your hair cut and colored by the same hairstylist – many offer a discount when doing the services combined and it also eliminates some steps in between.
3. You Don’t Have To Have Short Hair Just Because You Have Thin Hair
There’s a common misconception going around with the ladies with thin hair thinking that they can only wear their hair in short hairstyles to get it to look right. In fact, many ladies with thin hair only have short hair because of that factor (or because someone told them that’s the truth). However, you don’t have to have short hair just because it’s thin – you can have long hair, we promise! Talk to your hairstylist if you have thin hair and ask what other options there are that would work well with your hair type to get some variety in motion.
4. Avoid saying “You Don’t Care” or “Do What You Want”
This is a dreaded statement to make to your hairstylist, when you sit in their chair and tell them you don’t care what they do with your hair or to do whatever they want it can definitely put them in a weird position. For starters, odds are you do know what you want and when they do something they want, it may not be in line with what you actually want for your hair. In addition, they can’t read your mind! Just tell them and have an open line of communication to make sure that you’re satisfied.
5. Don’t Put Styling Products In Your Hair Before The Cut
Some people suggest that washing your hair the night before your cut, and leaving it free of any hair styling products is the best option for you and your hairstylist. This way they’re able to see the true texture of your hair and give you a cut and style that best fits your natural hair’s texture.
