You finally made an appointment to see a hairstylist who comes highly recommended by everyone you know…now what? Although he/she may be a very talented stylist, you can’t expect them to read your mind. In order to get exactly what you want at the salon, it is important to provide a visual reference to the stylist.
Photos can be really helpful in portraying exactly what you’re looking for. Have some pictures ready to show them, and explain your lifestyle. This way they can determine what you are trying to get out of this haircut/hairstyle. Perhaps you have a job that requires a more sophisticated look. Maybe you’re a mom who doesn’t have much time to fuss with your hair in the morning, and you require something easy low maintenance. Being as everyone has their own definition of what fuss, sophisticated and easy are, this visual description can go a long way in making sure you are satisfied with your new do.
Be sure to choose a photo of someone with your hair color, and similar face shape. That way you know its a realistic goal, not something that will never look anything like you. Now it is up to the hairstylist to deliver your dream look. You can sit back, relax, and know that you did your homework and have successfully communicated what you want. Enjoy your transformation!
