Going to a hair saloon is time for us for a bit of relaxation and some random chit-chats.
Some are preserving regular cuts,some are trying new things. But,sometimes we just feel lost not knowing what we really want to change in our hairstyle.
What are the 5 things to know before you go to a hair saloon?
Many clients come in a hair saloon with hair that hasn’t been washed in a week because they’ve been waiting the hairstylist to do it.
If you don’t come in with perfectly fresh, clean hair, it’s okay, but having a ton of product build-up on your strands can cause your color to go on unevenly.
Of course, you shouldn’t scrub your scalp before a color service because it can make your skin more sensitive to the dye.
But If you’re grossed out by how dirty your hair is, chances are gently shampoo the night before your appointment to make nice with your stylist and get the most out of your color.
When undergoing through a major color change,you have to have realistic expectations of what can be achieved in a single appointment.
Don’t expect to go from black to platinum blonde in just one day. Do it gradually to maintain the integrity of your hair.
If you realize the process is going to take longer than the time you allotted, reschedule your appointment when you have the time.
It’s critical that you tell what your hair’s history is, whether it was a gloss, toner, Brazilian blow out, box color, etc.It can make a difference on how it is going to be treating .
It is recommended chatting with your hairstylist about budget and upkeep to ensure you’re not getting yourself in too deep.
Certain colors and cuts require more trips to the salon so if your goal is to be low-maintenance, ask your stylist for something that will still look great as it grows out.
Have An Open Mind
It’s always good to come to your appointment with an idea, but be open to expert advice as well.
What you have in mind may not be the best choice for your skin tone, face shape, eye color, or other features, so be flexible and talk with your stylist to ensure you get the best cut or color specifically for you.
If you are a new client, want a major change, or need a lot of work done to your hair, consider booking appointments earlier in the day or in the middle of the week.
They’re easier to get and your stylist will have more time and energy to devote to you.
Not sure what you need or how long it will take?
Call your stylist ahead of time or go in for a consultation beforehand, so you can explain what you’re thinking and they can be sure to block out the right amount of time.
Take Better Care Of Your Color
Using good quality color-safe products really does matter. Products that aren’t specially formulated for color-treated hair, can strip the color out of your strands, leaving it dull and dingy way sooner than you hoped.
