Our top tips for choosing the right hairdresser

Going to the hair salon should be a relaxing and pleasant experience for everyone. Having your hair done is a real treat and is a chance to unwind from the stress of the world. However, it can be incredibly difficult to find the right hairdresser for you. Below we share some top tips for choosing the right hairdresser for you.

Consider having a consultation

It is important that you meet the hair stylist, prior to your hair appointment. You need to meet them face-to-face so that you get a real sense of their personality, as well as gleaming any suggestions that they may have regarding your hairstyle and planned cut. Ask them questions and tell them what you would like.

Have a look through their portfolio

This is another important thing that you need to do prior to booking. Check out their professional portfolio. This can be done by checking online. The first thing that should be noted is that the portfolio should be up to date and current. You can very easily check out their recent creations and see if they are suited to dealing with your hair type and intended style or cut. Their portfolio should be on the salon website or their social media account.

Choose an experienced hair stylist

Experience really does matter when it comes to having the perfect haircut. New stylists will make mistakes, this can’t be helped, so if you’re looking for perfection then you need to look for proven experience. Use information to find out could be how long they have been cutting hair, where they trained, and where they have worked before. This will give you a clear picture of their hair training and experience.

The price is not always the most important factor

People often assume that the more they pay for a haircut, the better the cut and overall experience will be. But, this is simply a myth. The quality of a new hairstyle cannot be guaranteed by how much you are willing to pay. Expensive does not always mean best! Work within your own budget and pay what you are comfortable with paying.
