3 Communication Tips for Getting Great Results with your Hair Stylist

getting the hair style you wantHave you ever gone into a hair salon with high hopes, only to come out feeling like the stylist didn’t listen to anything you said? Here at Levell’s Salon, we pride ourselves on our friendly, talented stylists, all of whom do a great job getting to know clients and exactly what they are looking for in a hair style.

No matter how personable and talented the stylist, sometimes it helps to know how to communicate your ideas better in specific situations. Take a look at 3 tips for communicating with your hair stylist, to ensure you end up with the hairstyle you want, whether it’s a sew-in weave or a hair cut and color.

Tips for talking to your hair stylist:

  • Give your stylist an idea of what you’re “going for.” Even if you print out photos of celebrities to show, explain what you like about them. For instance, say “I like the beachy waves and unstructured style of this cut; I’m going for something casual and spunky,” instead of just saying “make me look like [insert actress of choice].”
  • If you are getting your hair cut, make sure you and your stylist are on the same page as far as how much length to take off. Illustrate what you want by pointing it out on your own body, i.e. chin, collarbone, etc.
  • Ask about how to style your hair. Whether you are getting a weave, a relaxer, or a cut and color, it’s important that you know how to care for it once you get home. Your stylist will be able to advise you on the best products and techniques to keep your hair healthy.
