Additional Hair Care Information:
Going to the salon should be a relaxing and fun experience; you've done your research and found the salon that fits your needs, now all you have to do is relax and wait for the amazing transformation. In reality, however, going to the salon can turn into a nightmare when your blonde comes out highlighter yellow or your “trim” becomes an Edward Scissorhand's nightmare.
Was your stylist completely to blame, or could you have failed to communicate your wants? We'll admit, we've seen some unbelievably bad haircuts, but for the most part communication really is key to your satisfaction. If you're finding it difficult to communicate your needs and wants to your hair stylist, try these tricks:
Bring a Picture – This is one of the easiest ways to get exactly what you want and gives us a great starting point. If you have the exact hair style, cut or color in a picture, by all means, bring it, but you may need to bring a few different pictures to show how you want the bangs, layering and sides to give a full view. Try to find a picture with a similar hair type, than let us tell you if the look works for you.
Be Patient – It's our job to know what shape and color works best for your specific features. We've trained for years to master this craft. We will ask you a series of specific questions than let us do the rest. If we ask you questions, it's not because we've never done it before, it's because we want to give you exactly what you want. The worst experience usually happens when you try to micro-manage the stylist; this atmosphere makes it extremely difficult for us to be creative and do our best work.
Think about your Own Style – If you want a Jessica Biel slick straight look with trendy bangs to match, but your hair is more coarse or textured, or if you love Rihanna's deep red, short locks but your skin tone is much warmer and your face less narrow, you may need to rethink your options. This is where it's important to be flexible and to listen to the advice your stylist.
Keep Maintenance in Mind – So you decided on the straight hair and fringe, but now you'll need to style it every morning. We totally endorse spending the time and energy on yourself each day to feel great about how you look, but try to consider the maintenance time and cost associated with your new look. You have to be honest with yourself, how much time are you willing to spend on your hair. Will you need to spend an extra $100 a month on hair care products? Will you have alternate looks for your hair in case you run short on time or happen to oversleep? These are questions you need to take into consideration, and make sure to head down to your hair salon Houston TX, before going under the scissor.
