Help US Help YOU =)

I’m going to give you some ways to help your stylist out at your next appointment.

  1. Come to your color appointment with freshly washed hair and dried, with no product in it. Why? Think about your hair as a canvas. You wouldn’t put fresh paint on a dusty canvas, the results wouldn’t be what you want them to be. The same goes for your hair. If you're putting color or lightener on hair that is sweaty, oily or has product build up, the color has to work harder to bust through to your hair fiber to actually deposit into your hair strand. It could make the color not cover as evenly, take longer to process, or even have spotty results.
  2. Bring in a picture. Even if you’re just coming in for a haircut. Pictures give us visuals and help with communication during your visit so we can know what you’re looking for. When choosing a photo, try to look for pictures that have similar density and texture to you. If you have curly hair, look for photos of curly cuts, not straight or curled with an iron. Unless you’re willing to put the time into styling your hair like the picture, keep in mind that your cut won’t necessarily look the same. I’ve had clients who have wavy hair that only air dry, bring in pictures of board straight hair that flipped out on the ends. I had to explain to her that we can cut her hair the same, but unless she styles it like the picture it won’t appear the same. 
  3. TRUST US. Our goal is to help you look and feel as confident and beautiful as possible. We’re here to find the right style and color to compliment your skin and your face shape. The hard truth is that bangs don’t suit everyone. Blonde doesn’t suit everyone. Black doesn’t suit everyone and sometimes, we have to learn that the hard way.  Trusting your stylist’s knowledge goes a long way and can help prevent some embarrassing photos to look back on. No hard feelings. Been there, done that. Blonde is NOT my color!
  4. Prebooking. We want to make sure that we have the appointment time and date that works best for you. If you're schedule is very rigid and you need a specific day or time, go ahead and book your next one. Heck, book through the whole year!! No more last-minute calls and having to wait 6 more weeks. 
  5. Buy the product your stylist recommends. This is not a plot to take more money from you. It’s to protect your investment in your hair. If you spend $200+ on your hair and don’t buy the product recommended, not only are you washing color down the drain, you’re not keeping your results for as long as they can last. Not only that, support small businesses. 

I hope these tips help in your next appointment with us!

Here’s to YOUR great hair day!
