Giving someone with scissors “Carte Blanche” to your head is a very dangerous thing.*
BUT There are 3 reasons I was okay giving total scissor control over:
- I already knew Kris* did quality work.
- She knew I have thick heavy hair.
- I’ve had many different hairstyles so I know hair grows & don’t freak out.
During the consult I explained:
- -I was going to get my wisdom teeth out
- -I needed something easy to deal with
- -I never blow dry/flat iron/curl my hair
- -I felt like a shaggy lion (too much hair with no style or shape)
I wound up with a cut I never would have thought of. At first I thought “BUT the LOB is the CUT the HAIRSTYLE to have”!!! Then I started looking at my face. The new cut made me look at my face instead of the crazy shapeless lob!!! The cut made you look right at my eyes & gave the illusion I had CHEEKBONES!
MY GENERAL DISCLAIMER ABOUT* “Do Whatever You Want To My Hair”
If you don’t like change, don’t know your stylist; your stylist doesn’t know you, etc. it can turn out badly. HOPING TO BE REPETITIVE, unless you are ready to live with WHATEVER THEY DO to your hair, don’t give the okay.
HOW TO GET YOUR BEST CUT:
I asked the Stylists: How do you get a great haircut?
-Listen to what your stylist is saying
-When they ask a question like “How much do you want trimmed off the bottom?” Answer that question. (It’s so easy to half listen and answer a different question.)
-Be honest about styling! If you NEVER flat-iron your hair, or you’ll heat style but don’t like a lot of product, tell them. (A good Stylist can cut/texturize/show you shortcuts if you talk to them.)
-A picture is worth a thousand words. Whether you have something specific in mind OR like parts of different cuts, bring them along.
-You can ask if their work is guaranteed (if they’ll fix hairs that might have been missed or things you REALLY don’t like when you get home.)
-Your LIFE affects your hair routine. They have tips/products to tame hair & can guide you away from high maintenance cuts.
