How To Get The Haircut You Want

Jul 18, 2008
Most women have left a hair salon with a hair cut that they are not happy with. We may know what we want before we go, but somehow this gets lost in translation when we get the gown on, and we end up with something complete different!

Here are four points that will help you to get the hair cut you want.

Know what you want before you arrive at the salon. It is amazing how many women arrive and have no idea of what they want. Before your appointment spend some time in front of the mirror at home and experiment with holding your hair back, pushing it forward and other looks that you may be thinking off. Plan your haircut as you would plan an outfit. Ask yourself whether it the style you are thinking of is suitable for different occasions. If you are considering a color as well, make sure that you are certain it is not a whim. It will be with you for quite a time! Make a short list of what you love about your hair, and what you loathe about it. This will give the hairdresser a clearer idea of what you need from a good haircut.

Take a picture of the haircut you want, or at least a picture of something that is very similar. This will give the hairdresser some idea of what look you are aiming for. However, you may need to be prepared to modify your expectations and listen to your hairdressers advice, if, for example, your hair is not suitable for such a cut. But a picture can prove to be a good starting point for discussion.

Make sure you are clear on the style of cut that you have decided on before the hairdresser begins cutting. Sometimes, after discussing lots of styles, it is easy to become confused and forget which one you have actually decided on. You need to ask for clarification that you both have the same style in mind!

Do not put on a false persona. The best thing you can do to ensure that you get a cut that will suit you, is to be yourself. If you are a busy mum who does not have time to spend on her hair in the morning, then you need something simple. Do not be tempted to use your time at the hair salon to be someone you are not. By letting your true personality shine through (even on a bad day!) your hairdresser will have a clearer idea of how your day is spent and what you need from your haircut.

By using these four simple steps, you can build up a relationship with your hairdresser that means that you will always get the cut you want.
