Let's face it, next to
relationships with signifigant others, picking a hair stylist
at a hair salon ranks as a close second in
difficulty. If you don't believe that, consider leaving your
current stylist and going to somebody else at her
salon...touchy situation, isn't it?
Fortunately, we here at
tirelessly to find you ideas that will make picking (and
leaving) a hair stylist as pain free as possible. Here are a
Recommendations: Ask a trusted friend
who (s)he uses. Compile a list and then decide based on price,
location, and your friend's opinion which is the best stylist
Professionalism: Above all,
you should find a salon, and stylist, who is professional. Make
sure that person treats you properly by asking specific
questions about what you want done, somebody who doesn't gossip
or discuss personal problems, or in other words, somebody who
is more concerned with helping you get the hair style you want
then anything else!
Communicate: Like any
relationship, communication is the key. Let your stylist know
what you what your hair to look like. Ask for her opinions;
remember, this is what she does for a living and probably has
some wonderful ideas. Listen to her recommendations and decide
if you like her ideas and trust her using scissors on your
hair. If not, move on!
Breaking up...sob!: If you
are unhappy with the level of service you receive from your
stylist, consider going elsewhere. Two things to
1) talk with her about
this. Disappearing without saying anything is the worst
thing that can be done; what if you run into one another a
few months later?
2) If you want to go to a
different stylist at the same salon, be sure to communicate
this with your current stylist. Explain you want to try
something new, and if she is a professional, she will
overcome any feelings of hurt or rejection and, well,
become 'just friends.'
