How to Get the Hairstyle You Really Want
We’ve all been there. You tell your stylist what you want and then end up with something entirely different than you expected. We tend to blame it on the stylist, but chances are they did exactly what you asked them to do. Communication is key in getting the haircut or color that you want.
Be Very Specific
If you have a particular color or style in mind, be very specific in describing it. The better visual picture you paint for your stylist, the easier it will be for them to create the look you want. Don’t just tell them to take a couple of inches off. Your idea of what a couple inches will look like may be very different from how it will actually look. Use your hands to show them exactly where you want your hair to fall.
Bring a Picture
If you can find a picture of the style or color you want, or one that is very similar, bring it with you. This is especially important if you are not familiar with hairstyle lingo. If the picture isn’t exactly what you want, you can tell your stylist what you like and dislike about it so that they can customize the look to suit you. Do you like the layers but want a little more length? Do you adore the color but would prefer more highlights? Don’t be afraid to speak up and say so.
Make Sure Your Expectations Are Realistic
Your stylist is a talented professional, but they are not a magician. Your hair may not be the same thickness or texture as the person in the picture. So, even though your stylist cuts your hair exactly as you wanted, it may not look exactly like you expected. Ask questions before the first snip of the scissors to be sure that the style you’ve chosen will suit your features as well as your hair type. And to avoid disappointment, don’t go in expecting an exact copy of the picture you brought in. No two people have hair that is exactly the same.
