When planning to make a major change with your hair, it’s always recommended to first book a consultation with your stylist. While it’s an exciting time, you should not skip this important step!
Your hair is the canvas that your hairstylist will work with to create the hairdo of your dreams. Taking a 20-30 minutes to sit down with your stylist to discuss the length, color, perm and other details will set you up for success. A consultation with your stylist should be free of charge at most professional hair salons.
A good stylist should be able to make recommendations around your desired look and what makes sense for your hair type and texture. He or she could also point things such as required maintenance pertaining to your desired look so that you can perfectly re-create the exact look at home every time. Of course, if you don’t have a clear picture of how you want your hair to look, your stylist can give you new ideas that will work with your hair and unique facial features.
It may be wise to bring pictures of the hairstyle you have in mind, as well as alternative looks you’re considering. This is also the time to bring up any questions you may have regarding the condition of your hair such as any split ends that you may have noticed.
By the end of the hair appointment, you’ll know your stylist’s opinion, recommendations, and concerns so you can make an informed decision about the direction of your new look. Great looking hair is a big part of your image, often the first things people will notice about you, so you’ll want to take the time to properly plan out this exciting change!
