Beauty is not just one thing; it is a combination of all of the parts that make you, you. It’s your heart, your soul, your laugh, your company, your character, and even your hair. Hair is not just hair, it’s an expression of who you are. A hairstyle can allow you to express your individualism in all the right ways.
This is why it is so important to take the time to find the right stylist. Although you may not realize it, your stylist is an extension of yourself as they help bring your vision and personality to life. When you’re starting your search for a stylist, try to focus on quality versus quantity. The years of experience that a stylist has doesn't necessarily equate to them being better than other stylists.
Other key factors to consider are a stylist’s comfort level with different textures, lengths, and thickness of hair. Keep in mind that your hair is unique, and not all stylists may know how to work with it. Don’t be afraid to ask about the stylist’s experience with different products, cuts, textures, and overall knowledge—as this will be a big indicator on whether they are the right stylist for you.
Lastly, be sure to pay attention to your own feelings. Do you feel like you can trust your stylist and open up to them? Do you vibe with them and are you willing to take risks with them? You may not realize it, but when you do find him or her, you’re investing in a lifelong friendship and confidant. Their sole job is to make you feel more beautiful than you already are.
