Finding the Right Hairstylist

We've all been there, we walk into a hair salon that was nearby, and walked out with the worst haircut ever or in my case a mullet.
Choosing the right stylist is not about choosing the nearest salon or hair spa. It is about locating the right hairstylist for you, one that suits your personal tastes and preferences.
You need to find someone you can spend quality time with, a professional who can identify and solve any particular issues you might have.
Whether you're looking for someone new because you're new to the area or you don’t really have a stylist, here are a few tips for choosing a hairstylist.

Ask Around

The best place to find a great hair stylist is from the people around you. Ask your friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, or even strangers.
The key is that you ask people whose hair you'd love to copy and/or has the same hair type as you.
I found my stylist because someone who also had thick wavy hair posted a positive comment on the stylists Instagram page.
Hair stylists love referrals so when you visit your co-worker or friend’s stylist, be sure to let them know who referred you.

Browse Social Media

Facebook, Twitter, and ​​Instagram have changed the way we live in so many ways, and finding a referral for a hairstylist is one of them.
With the explosion of the internet, social media, and review sites like Yelp, finding a hairstylist that you can trust isn't as frustrating as it used to be.
In minutes you can reach hundreds of people in your area simply by asking the question to the people you connect with online.
If they love their hair dresser, they'll refer you. In moments you can have the name, phone number, web site, and fan page of a stylist.
The same is also true if they went to someone that they wouldn't recommend.

Read Reviews

This is one of the first things I do.
If you're not getting what you're looking for from the people you know, or you're new to an area and don't know many people, check out websites that offer reviews.
Yelp is a great place to start. These sites offer information about each business, is organized by your city, and often include websites, phone numbers, and Facebook pages as well as reviews by people that have used the services of the hair salon or stylist.

Communication is Key

Once you have found a hairstylist, it is important to explain clearly what you need.
Specify your requirement so you don’t get disappointed.
Make sure that your stylist understands precisely what you require before the stylist starts coloring, cutting or styling your hair.

I hope you find these tips helpful :)
