So the good and the bad have been taken care of, now to talk about reasonable expectations. I would love to tell you the secret to growing your hair five inches overnight or to have ten times thicker hair by merely changing your part line. Your hair in its normal state on a normal day is what genetics has bestowed upon you. It could be smooth and sleek or it could look a tad frayed and frizzy because of your recent trip to the coast. Damaged hair is damaged hair no matter how many hair masques and treatments we apply. Believe it or not, a little trim will actually make the hair appear fuller and thicker because it has a nice blunt edge and retains color better than a split end. If your hair is breaking, having trouble curling or retaining color, don’t be alarmed if we advise a trim or cut. Color is a main expectation that could have its differences. What a stylist sees as a Level 8 neutral (medium blonde), the client could see it as an orangey blonde. Your stylist will go over these differences in color to help you to understand the process. Sometimes achieving a look can take several times, in intervals of 6 weeks.
One more thing to mention, don’t forget to talk about your hair routine. I roll out of bed, spray hair spray on my head and let my hair fall where it wants to fall. Sometimes my head will naturally rock a faux hawk and it looks great and then sometimes my hair rebels and it’s a headband day. Do you like to blow dry your hair, let it partially air dry, let it fully air dry, flat iron, velcro roller, or curl your locks with a curling iron? What type of products do you like to use at home? Letting us know how you normally style your hair will play a significant roll in planning your cut or color. With all these helpful hints in tow, you should have an amazing consultation and the best hair experience possible at your next salon appointment.
