14 Things Your Hairdresser Won’t Tell You
Unhappy with your last haircut? Think you’re paying too much for hair colouring? Save money and improve your experience at the hairdresser with these expert tips.
1. I Know What I’m Doing
I have formal training and know what will work well for your hair texture, face shape and colouring, so try to ask more and tell less.
2. Have Some Respect
Don’t ask me to “squeeze you in” when I’m already booked. I’m sure you wouldn’t want your own appointment to be pushed back so I can fit in someone else.
All my clients are equally important to me.
4. A Little Gratitude Means a Lot to Me
Tell me when you’re satisfied with the result, and say thank you on the way out.
5. Sit Straight
Don’t cross your legs or tilt your head when I’m cutting your hair – unless, of course, you enjoy sporting an uneven hair length.
7. Try to Come Alone
Don’t bring your kids (or your pets) with you. Restless youngsters are an unwanted distraction. If they’re perched on your lap or tugging at your arm, I won’t do a good job.
8. Sick? Stay Home
If you have a cold or flu, please postpone your cut. My staff and fellow clients don’t want to catch it.
10. Arrive on Time
Arrive on time. Just like you don’t like to wait, neither do I. Time is money around here. And if you can’t avoid running late, then please call ahead.
11. I Have a Lot of Customers
Don’ feel offended if I don’t recall your relationship dilemmas from two months ago. And just because you’re telling me details about your personal life, it does not mean I will reciprocate.
13. Don’t Be Tempted to DIY at Home
Salon-only products will give you a better and longer-lasting result and won’t damage your hair as much.
