Hair and beauty salons are not a foreign concept to many women and men. In fact, some people visit them on a routine basis to keep their style fresh and consistently looking good. Others make frequent salon visits to keep their hair color crisp, or to help maintain desired hair textures. Aside from a good hair cut, there are other benefits to visiting hair salons.

Hair and Beauty Salons

Cutting Edge Advise:

Some people have no idea what kind of cut would look good. Consulting with a hairdresser can offer suggestions based on hair texture and thickness. They can help you determine if a certain style will work well with your hair, or if you should consider something different. It is okay, and even expected, to ask a stylist what they think about the cut you’re considering. Many stylists enjoy offering their advise and using their industry training to create a look that’s just right for the individual.

Style Suggestions:

Along with helping someone decide on the best type of haircut, hair dressers can also give suggestions for styling the new do. Be honest about how much time you’re willing to spend on your hair on a daily basis. They may cut your hair in slightly different way to make styling quicker or easier. After the cut, they can walk you through the steps to help you achieve a similar look. They may also offer other suggestions on ways you can style, based on your individual hair type. Ask questions, and seek their knowledge to get the most out of your visit.

Product Suggestions:

Hair salons always sell some products. Different salons will have different procedures for product sales, but don’t always assume they’re just trying to sell you something. Stylists can make product suggestions which can dramatically improve your hair’s condition, and styling ease. They may also tell you what not to use. Also, discuss with your stylists what products you typically use (or don’t use) and they may have some thoughts on those as well.

Utilize the Chit-Chat

Many stylists enjoy idle chit-chat while cutting their client’s hair. Some will talk about topics totally unrelated to hair, while others will ask you questions about your hair as they work. If you go to the same stylist all the time, there’s probably not much left to discuss about your hair. But if it’s someone new, or you go infrequently, use the chit-chat time to get some advice. You can learn a lot from hair stylist.

Consider some questions or topics such as:

* Different styling tools

* Their thoughts on national hair care brands

* What exactly is a Brazilian Blowout or Ombre color?

* What kind of highlights would look good on you?

* How often should you condition hair?

What’s New?

Many hair salons send their stylists to seminars or workshops to learn the newest trends. In return, they can offer their clientele new methods or products in all aspects of hair care. If you’re thinking of changing things up, you can benefit from their on-going training and get a new type style or color you never knew even existed.
