Consultations are a must every single salon visit!
Consultations are the first step to the best hair service ever! Whether you’re meeting a new hairdresser or it’s the 100th time with your stylist a consultation is so important.
It’s important for your stylist to know what is working and what is not working with your hair. It’s good to start with how your hair is styling, how the style is lasting and what you’d like your hair to do. It’s a good idea to go through your hair routine so your stylist will able to see what you may be doing that’s not helping you. It’s good to explain the products you are using as well. Sometimes just changing a product or the amount you are using can make all the difference.
There are lots of ways to say the same thing so it’s important to make sure that you and your hairdresser are thinking the same thing. An inch can be a different measurement for everyone. Sometimes someone will tell me an inch and it’s actually 3 inches that they want taken off.
There are only about 100 shades of hair color. A shade of auburn or caramel can mean different things to different people. A picture is really worth a thousand words and you need to make sure you are getting what you want. Make sure your stylist understands what you are telling them. It’s best to repeat back what they say to you to make sure they got it.
I can look at a photo of a haircut and color and see different colors than you see. Everyone will focus on something different in the same photo. Some notice the overall lightness of a color and I will see the dark low-lights that are added in.
A though consultation will prevent mishaps in color choices and hair cut styles.
