Searching for the Right Stylist
Finding a hair stylist that suits your personality and style can seem like an impossible task. If your previous stylist is no longer available, finding a new stylist can be as traumatic as starting over with a new significant other. Stylists are trusted partners in your hair journey throughout life. The following are some tips to help you find a new stylist that’s right for you.
Ask your family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances for recommendations. Be sure to tell the new stylist the name of who referred you. It will help them get a feel for the type of look you like and they’ll know who to thank for the referral.
Get a Blowout
For those afraid of commitment, this is one of the easiest and least stressful ways to meet a new stylist. There’s no obligation to go back, but you might get lucky.
Like online dating, visiting a salon’s website can be helpful in finding a new stylist and seeing their reviews. If you’re enamored with certain products, you should be able to discern if they use your favorites.
Social media is a great way to ask for help and obtain recommendations. An added benefit is that many salons create YouTube channels showing their stylists in action so you can actually see how they work and the finished results.
Your first time should be enjoyable. If you’ve been tempted to experiment with a new cut or color, don’t do it with a new stylist. Seeing a new stylist is like any other relationship. It takes time to develop trust.
Trust Your Instincts
Even the most talented stylist in the world may not be the right one for you if he/she doesn’t actually listen to what you say, you feel like the services are being rushed, or the two of you don’t create the right vibe together.
When you book the appointment, feel free to explain you’re new and would like to talk to the stylist beforehand. It can also be helpful to bring a photo along to show the new stylist the aesthetic you like.
