We all strive for that amazing salon experience that puts every other salon encounter to shame, where we dance out of the salon with our hair blowing in the wind like a Pantene commercial. OK, maybe not that drastic, but we do want to walk out feeling new again and happy about the direction our hair is taking. It’s comforting to know that your stylist is on the exact same page from the color, cut, curl expression, home styling, and every other flicker that comes into your head about how you want your hair to act. Stylists should have ESP right? An extra sixth sense so that they know exactly what you mean when you heave a large sigh and say, “Please just fix this! I don’t know what to do with my hair anymore and I think I’m in a hair funk”. Don’t Worry! There is a bright moment to this cloud, and you are the key. How do you achieve this crazy eye-level intuitiveness with your stylist about your coif? You’re going to have to be honest about your hair expectations. Tell us about the absolutely fabulous times when your hair was at it’s peak and then we want to hear about your worst times when you couldn’t stand to go outside without wearing a hat. We won’t air your hair monologue to the world, so don’t be ashamed about your hair’s history. I routinely had perms back in the mid 90’s and sported a bobbed haircut on my round cheeked face, life happens to the best of us.
