5 Things Your Hairdresser Wants You to Know
Most of us visit the hairdresser at least once a month. At the same time, most of us often take hairdressers for granted either by not thinking through what we had in mind before making an appointment or by being late to the said appointment. Here are the five things that your hairdresser never told you, but they wished you already knew.
Wash Your Hair Before You Visit
This one should go without saying, but someone somehow spread the myth that the hairdressers are fine with your hair being dirty and messy. However, they are not and, if you don’t want to be disrespectful, you should have it clean and tidy before visiting your favorite hairdresser.
Know What You Want
Knowing what you want is really important to the hairdressers. Yes, they love making a suggestion or two or three and they most surely will, but ultimately the decision is all yours. It saves you both a lot of time, so knowing what you want beforehand is of great help. This one is especially important for people planning on a significant change of styles.
Expectations vs Reality
Knowing what you want is great but knowing what you can achieve is even better. Just because a specific haircut looks good on someone else, it doesn’t mean it will suit you. So, whether it comes to the color or the style, it is really important for the hairdressers that you understand what they can do with your hair type or length. Hairdressers can do miracles with your hair sometimes, but they aren’t miracle workers.
This one annoys the hairdressers the most. If they move your head or tilt it in a certain direction, try keeping it like that. I mean, they are standing right there with a pair of scissors in their hands. The last thing anyone would want is you suddenly move your head.
Trust Them with Their Dyes and Suggestions
It is evident that hair salons get commissions if you buy products directly from them; everyone sort of knows that already. But the reason your hairdresser suggests you a product they have is that they legitimately think it will be beneficial for you and that it would suit your hair the best. DIY products you can buy on the TV might be a lot cheaper, but none of the hairdressers would recommend you using them and for a good reason.
