Finding the right hair salon for you can be a challenge. There are many people who know they need to find a different hairdresser, but when it comes right down to it, they don't know what to look for. Here are some characteristics that make a hairdresser great.
1. They Are Honest
First of all, you need to find someone who is honest with you. Although you want your hairdresser to make you feel good about yourself, you also have to be realistic about how your hair looks. Too many people go to a hairdresser with a picture of a celebrity and say "I want to look like this." Using a picture can be helpful when you need to get an idea across about what you want to look like, but not all haircuts will look good on you. You have to take into account your face shape, the thickness of your hair, and even maintenance of the style. Some haircuts require more maintenance than others.
Your hairdresser needs to be honest with you. If you want a haircut that won't look good on you, you need to them to tell you. This doesn't mean that they should be overly opinionated, it simply means that they should let you know all of the information before you get your haircut.
2. They Are Consistent
Another thing you should be looking for consistency. Each time you get your hair done by your hairdresser you should know what to expect. Too many times people go in for a haircut to come out disappointed, even when they use the same person, this is because the person isn't careful enough to be consistent. Or you don't have enough information to give them about your cut. For example, if you are a man you should know exactly how short you want it on the sides, how long to leave it on the top, where you part it and so forth. If you tell them this information, you should expect them to be consistent and do it the same way every time.
3. They Are Affordable
Lastly, no one needs to overpay for a haircut. There are some people who think that because they are good at what they do that they can overcharge. Shop around before you choose a stylist and choose someone who fits your budget. You can always tip more, but you shouldn't have to fork out to get your hair done.
By knowing these things, you can find the right hairdresser.
