Everyone loves going to the salon and being pampered. Sometimes though, it’s overwhelming and terrifying going in for a new cut or color. Here are some tips on making your visit to the salon a satisfying experience.
1. Use Pinterest or magazines for inspiration.
Tear out pictures from magazines of cuts or color that you like or create a Pinterest board to save styles you’re interested in. Always take in a visual with you to show the stylist. This helps to convey the look you are going for because everyone has a different idea of what color blond or brown is. Hairstylists speak a different language than most people (“brassy”, etc.), so a picture will cut down on the confusion and communicate exactly what you want.
2. Find A Great Stylist
If you see someone whose hair color or cut you like, ask them who did their hair. Finding a fantastic stylist that can tell you what looks good on your face shape, goes with your skin color, etc. is an amazing discovery.
