Whether you’re going to the same hair salon you’ve been going to for ten years or are trying a new salon, you should always walk out of the door feeling confident and loving the haircut you got. Not thrilled with your results? Doing your research, communicating effectively, and considering your needs will help you get a great haircut. Here are our tips for getting a better haircut and never being unsatisfied again.
1. Save photos of the cuts you love
Communicating the type of haircut you want can be difficult, so skip the step of poor communication by saving photos of the cuts you love and showing them to your stylist! Don’t know where to look for inspiration? Start by scrolling through Pinterest, flipping through your favorite magazines, and checking out your favorite celebrities hairstyles!
2. Consider your coworker’s hairstyles
Work in a professional environment? Walking in with a crazy new do and crazy color locks might not go over too well. If you’re looking to add more personality to your hair, consider the hairstyles of the people you work with to see how far you can go.
3. Be firm about the amount of hair you want to cut off
We’ve all left the hair salon with shorter hair than we wanted. When it comes to cutting your hair, be extremely firm with your stylist about the amount of hair you want to cut off. Your stylist will always listen to you, but being firm will allow you to both be on the same page.
4. Cut or color first?
If you’re switching up your hairstyle with a fresh cut and color, start with a cut first! This will give you time to adjust to your new hairstyle before going drastic with your new color. If you’re going to do something similar to your current hairstyle, you can do it all in one appointment!
5. Be honest about the amount of effort you put into your hair
A cute, new hairstyle that you saw on Pinterest always sounds like a good idea but more often than not, those hairstyles require more styling than you would think. If you’re not one to put a lot of effort into styling your hair, show your stylist the cut you want but talk about making adjustments so the style fits your lifestyle.
