Do Not Get Your Hair Cut Until You Read This Trick

hair cut trickThe adventure of going to a salon and getting your haircut can end in several ways. You feel satisfied, you experience something akin to joy. Or you’re traumatized beyond belief and feel like putting a bag over your head.

Cutting hair is a very personal experience and, depending on the style you choose and the cut you end up with, could be good or could be bad.

You entrust your head of hair to someone holding a pair of scissors and a comb. You hope they are competent enough to deserve that trust and give you the cut you desire and are worthy of.

The Trick: Know Want You Want Before You Go

It’s not a complicated trick, and it isn’t a trade secret. But knowing exactly what you want before you sit down in that salon chair helps.

Consider these aspects of the biggest hair cut trick of all before your hair-cutting appointment:

• Research ahead of time and have a good idea of what you want. Now’s your chance to take the time to obtain the cut and style that suits you best. Take into account the time you want to devote to your hair every day, as well as your daily routine.

Be realistic about styles. If you’re older, don’t opt for a youthful haircut unless you’re sure you can handle the style comfortably. A complicated style will take a lot of upkeep.

Ask yourself if you have the time each day to give it the attention it needs.

• Arm yourself with plenty of visual aids and graphics. Pictures speak louder than words, as the saying goes. Preparing a little folder of photos will communicate your wants and absolutely-don’t-wants to your stylist.

Leaf through magazines and check out various hair styles on the Web. Assemble clippings or print-outs together and discuss them with your stylist.

• Communicate with your stylist. A big part of the hair cut trick involves communication. Some salons invite their clients to come in a few minutes ahead of time to have a chat or a consult so that everything goes well in the chair. Take advantage of that service.

• Watch the hair-cutting process and don’t be afraid to speak up.

Now is not the time to be meek and accepting as you sit in the salon chair watching locks of your hair fall to the floor. The stylist wants to please you, so if you see something you’re not happy with, then speak up before it’s too late.
