    Avoid Leaving with Unexpected Surprises

    Not knowing how to talk to a hair stylist can sometimes result in grounds for disappointment, but there are some preemptive steps that you can take that can reduce the chances of you leaving the hair salon with unexpected surprises.

    It is important is to be precise when talk with your hairdresser. Terms like longer, darker, thinner, and more should be avoided because they often have different meanings to different people. Shorter could mean above the ears to one person, and shoulder length to the next. A good hairdresser will use more descriptive words to ensure that you are both on the same page. Use very descriptive phrases like: I want my hair cut to  my shoulders, or I would my perm to leave me with quarter sized ringlets. Bring a picture of the result that you would like to achieve, and remember to listen to your hairdresser’s advice.

If you haven’t found a picture from magazines at home, plan to arrive early for your appointment to look through the hair styling magazines and books that every hair salon has on hand. When you are prepared with a photograph, you not only present the hairdresser with the ability to create your desired results, but you also provide good insurance for who is at fault should you end up disappointed.

    Every girl has a story of when she decided to try a new hairdresser or new look, and ended up crying on the phone to her friends. “She cut it all off!” or “The color was supposed to be copper penny and it’s more like…electric pumpkin!” That could make anyone skittish to branch out of her tried-and-true hairstyle.
