12 Tips When Seeing Your Stylist

Knowing what you want and how to get it doesn’t apply just to your career. Whether you’re shelling out $20 or $200, you should always leave the salon feeling like you’re a runway model. Read these tips before your next visit, and pass this on to everyone you know!

1. Think Smart

Whether it’s adding a few face-framing layers or chopping it all off, consider your lifestyle and the time that you’re willing to spend on styling. Is your morning routine more get-up-and-get-out-the-door, or do you wake up with time allotted to put yourself together? Are you willing to incorporate new styling tools and products into your regimen?

The bottom line: You don’t want your new haircut to compete with your everyday routine.

2. Do Research

Read user reviews on Yelp.com or Citysearch.com to seek out a new salon or stylist. You can also search for phrases such as “Best pixie haircut in Pittsburgh, PA” and see what information comes up.

You’ll have peace of mind knowing that women like you are sharing their experiences. This method is also good to avoid shell shock if a cut costs $100 when you’re expecting to pay $50.

3. Consultation is Key!

“Let your stylist know what you have liked and have not liked about haircuts in the past,” says Ryan Trygstad, official stylist and spokesperson for Head & Shoulders. Elaborate on as many details as you can — for example, how much time you realistically have to spend on your hair, where you part your hair, if you have a cowlick, etc. The more information you give, the better idea your stylist will have.

4. Bring Visuals

“I tell clients that pictures are very helpful when understanding a client’s personal style and taste,” says Trygstad. This tactic will guarantee that both of you are on the same page.

5. Careful with the Lingo

“Avoid using hairdressing terms if you don’t fully understand what they mean,” says Elaine Mitchell, senior creative director for Sassoon Salon NYC Uptown. “For example, ‘graduation’ and ‘layering’ sound like they could be synonymous, but they actually have opposite meanings. Graduation creates a cut that is heavier and longer on top by building weight in the hair through cutting layers underneath. Layering makes the hair lighter and gives it volume and lift through internal layers.”

6. Be Realistic

Sometimes we just have to face the facts — those of us with a curly mass of hair will probably not be able to get Jennifer Aniston’s sleek and straight hair without a lot of work. With that said, if you are bringing in pictures, make sure that your tress-piration looks like she has a hair type similar to yours. And don’t expect a miracle, your stylist cannot make you into your favorite star, but can only make you have hot hair like them!

7. Do Your Toolwork!

Although you wouldn’t second-guess which tools your plumber is using to fix your drain, it’s different with your hairstylist. For example, clients who have curly or coarse hair should stay away from a razor. “This technique tends to shred the hair follicle,” says Trygstad. “On curly- and coarse-hair types, it tends to look damaged.”

“At Sassoon, we have a strict philosophy that focuses on maintaining the integrity of the hair,” adds Mitchell. “Razors have the potential to be damaging, so we only cut with scissors.”

8. Trust Your Stylist

Don’t let yourself be swayed one way or another if you have a firm desire for a certain look. At the same time, listen to your stylist’s suggestions and trust his or her expertise. “A good stylist will take into account your face shape, complexion, and features, and then create a look that best suits you,” says Mitchell, “all while keeping in mind what you initially wanted.”

9. Pay Attention

For decades, women have turned to their hairstylists for quality conversations. But chatting too much can have adverse effects.

Be warned: Talking can be distracting for both you and your stylist.

10. Communication

If you find your stylist is headed in the wrong direction, don’t be timid — let him or her know. More often than not, it’s easier to make adjustments during your cut than afterward. “If you feel uncomfortable any time during the cut, always speak up,” says Mitchell. “Your stylist wants you to be completely satisfied, and for that to happen, you have to be vocal.

11. Be Courteous!

This should go without saying, but don’t be late — even 15 minutes is pushing it. Your stylist is on a tight schedule just like you, and any ripples in her day can cause stress. Plus, you don’t want her to take out her stress on you. You want a relaxed, easygoing appointment.

12. Don’t Forget to Tip

Most experts agree that 15 to 20 percent of the cut cost, before tax, is the average tip for your hairstylist. Of course, feel free to add in a few bucks if she did a stellar job or if your hair is down to your butt. If there are assistants helping out, don’t forget them. Slip the shampoo assistant around $5 and an additional 10 to 15 percent to the one who helps with your blow-out.

How to: Emma Watson’s New Crop

 

First, take a central profile parting from the forehead to the nape, then two horizontal sections from the top of the occipital to the top of the ear, then take a central profile section at the nape.

Comb and elevate to 90-degrees to the head and remove weight using blunt cutting, 2-3 inches in length. Work with vertical sections towards the ears, following the guide from the center. Repeat on the other side.

On both sides of the head, take two horizontal sections from below the crown to the high-recession and work from the back to the front hairline, taking vertical sections above the occipital. Comb and elevate the hair to 90-degrees and cut blunt.

Repeat on the other side then take a central profile section from the forehead to the crown. Starting at the crown, elevate the hair to 90-degrees to the top of the head and remove weight by point-cutting squarely to the head-shape, 3 to 4 inches in length, continuing until you reach the front hairline. At the sides, blend the corners with point-cutting.

Then blow dry. Reshape the hairline using point-cutting then channel cut the fringe.
