Think about what you really want before you go to the stylist. An active lifestyle means you might dare to go shorter; if you love to linger in your beauty routine each morning, longer may be desirable. The bottom line: you want your haircut to fit your everyday routine.
Do some research before you choose your stylist. (Although we think you’ve already done that, and found the best adult haircut designers at Salon Frank Paul!)
Sit for a Consultation
The master hair designers at Salon Frank Paul can figure out what haircut will best reveal your beauty based on the shape of your face, the type of hair you have, and how much time you have to devote to your hair each morning. You should tell your stylist what haircut you’ve had before, and how you liked it. Together, the two of you can up with the perfect answer for you–and your perfect haircut!
When you see a perfect haircut in your favorite mag, rip it out and bring it on! A picture is worth a thousand words, and it will put you and your stylist on the same page.
Only use the lingo if you’re salon savvy
Use normal vocabulary when discussing your perfect haircut with the stylist. If you try to use salon-savvy vocabulary with the stylist, you might find out that what you say is not what you get.
Let’s face it, girls, we are what we are. Be realistic about what your hair can do. Don’t let your tress-pirations get out of control.
Trust Your Stylist
Let your stylist know what you want, then let them create. The golden rule of the perfect haircut?
A good stylist will take into account your face shape, complexion, and features, then create a look that best suits you, all the time keeping in mind what you initially wanted.
Let’s say you know your stylist well. So you talk and talk and talk. Your stylist tells you you’re done. She spins you to the mirror, and you have a giant red beesnest on your head. Oh no! What happened? This will never happen, but if you pay attention to what your stylist is doing, you’ll know immediately if he heads in the wrong direction on your perfect haircut. So keep your mouth shut, and you and your stylist will be less distracted.
If you feel uncomfortable at any time during your haircut, speak up. Don’t worry about hurting someone’s feelings. Your stylist wants you to be completely satisfied, and for that to happen, you must be vocal.
Ask about how to maintain your perfect haircut, including which products to use to complete your look.
This should go without saying. Be on time. Your stylist is on a tight schedule, just like you are. Beginning with stress is the wrong way to start your perfect haircut.
