Many people are loyal to their hairdresser, saying “I wouldn’t let anyone touch my hair but my hairdresser.” Your hair can be a beacon of greatness, a place to express yourself. You need to make sure it’s taken care of- especially when it comes to haircut maintenance or getting a new look. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2016 there were over 650,000 barbers, hairdressers, hairstylists and cosmetologists.650,000! How do you find the one? Of course, we think our hairdressers are the cream of the crop, but let’s talk about what makes them so.
Your hairdresser needs to be dedicated to you.
At the end of the day, you are the one that’s going to live with the look your hairdresser gives you. A quality hairdresser should have your best interest in mind. They should make your hairstyle dream come to life. Sometimes hairdressers can get excited after a long week of just giving trims, and jump at the opportunity to give someone a fun change, like going from long locks to a shaggy pixie. Bring it on! Find a hairdresser that can use their creative vision to create a look like you will love.
After a traumatic experience, be open to moving to someone else!
Sometimes people come out of the salon with an unsatisfactory cut. Maybe your hairdresser was talking too much and not paying attention? Maybe they were having a great time and didn’t want to stop. If you have a traumatic experience don’t say “I’m never going to trust any hairdresser again!” Let one of our stylists at Untamed bring the glam back to your look. A bad cut can (almost) always be saved.
Take advantage of time.
You can be in the seat for twenty minutes, you can be in the seat for three hours. Talk to your hairdresser. Bond with them and let them learn about you! Learn about them. Building a relationship creates a sense of safety and trust. Going in to get some new color can turn into a deep conversation that no one expected- and that can be beneficial! Your hairdresser can turn your mood around with a thoughtful cut and conversation.
Our hairdressers will be honest with you at all times. Talk about all concerns you have with your hair, they will surely know how to remedy the problems. If your hair needs something, your hairdresser will tell you.
Hairdressers love when clients bring in pictures. This way they know exactly what you are looking for. This can also ensure that you leave with the look that you came in for, and can create a sense of comfort when you first sit down in the chair. Make sure you and your stylist are on the same page.
A hairdresser can become your best confidant, someone you totally trust. Trusting your stylist will help you get the look you want so that you go home with a newfound confidence.
