The Best Hair Consultation of your Life
The moment of truth has arrived.
You’re at the hair salon—maybe it’s a hairdresser you’ve been seeing for awhile or maybe it’s your first time with them. Either way, you know what you want. You want something… different. Maybe you’ve seen a few ideas in magazines or on Pinterest. Or it could be that general restlessness that happens now and then, that desire we all get to explore another side of ourselves.
You sit down, take a deep breath, and then… you freeze. Because, you think, maybe it’s silly. Maybe you should stick with what you know. Let’s face it, you’re not even really sure how to articulate what it is you like about a new style, or don’t like about your current style. And then what if you end up with something that doesn’t even remotely resemble what you wanted?
Well, my beautiful friend, I am here to give you the inside scoop.
Following is a very short list of things that will dramatically improve your consultation with your hair stylist. Because when you’re happy, we’re happy. And let’s face it: there’s nothing quite like having the fabulous hair of your dreams.
1.) WE LOVE PICTURES!
As the best Salon in Redondo Beach, it’s our job to “learn to speak your language”. One of the best ways to learn what you are looking for is for us to see a picture of it. It also gives us a starting place to start discussing what kind of care and styling would be needed to achieve that look! So, clip or Pin away! We will thank you for it!
2.) BE HONEST WITH THE AMOUNT OF TIME YOU ARE WILLING TO SPEND ON YOUR HAIR!
It’s a fact of life that all styles require at least some type of time investment. Sadly, “Wash and Go” is a Myth. But the wonderful thing is, if you are upfront with us about how much time you are willing to spend, we can give you a great style that works with your real life.You know, the one that doesn’t come with 3 maids, 2 nannies and a butler!
3.) BE OPEN TO CHANGE EVEN IF IT’S JUST A LITTLE BIT!
A change doesn’t mean shearing your long hair into a pixie cut, but sometimes deepening the color a bit or adding a side swept bang can give you a lot of bang for your buck! And besides, who wants to look the same in family photos six years running? Or worse, bearing a striking hair resemblance to ones high school pictures! EGADS!
Repeat after me: Hair is an accessory, not an identity! Have fun with it!
4). GIVE US A HEADS UP, IF POSSIBLE!
We LOVE it when you want to change things up, we just want to make sure we have enough time to make it amazing for you (Not to mention, time to help you learn to style your rockin’ New Do!)! So if you’re thing of a change, give us a call a few days ahead of time so we can build in that extra time for a thorough consultation!
That’s it! Show us what you want, be honest about your time, be open to change, and give us a little bit of warning. That’s all of it, just four little steps that will get you the best hair consultation of your life…over and over again!
