Biggest Mistakes When Visiting a Salon

Most women visit the salon for some pampering and relaxation. Some would book an appointment because they’re sick of their current hairstyle and wanted to try something else. They come to the salon in the hopes of having superb haircut and gorgeous hair color and leave with a big smile on their face. Unfortunately, some people end up disappointed because they weren’t able to achieve the hairstyle they were hoping for. They would blame the hairstylist when in fact, they have committed some mistakes that led to unsatisfactory results.

Here are some of the biggest mistakes you should avoid when visiting a professional hair salon. Avoid falling prey to these mistakes so you can get the most out of your appointment and have a superb haircut.

Coming late

When you book an appointment, that time is reserved exclusively for you.  Most salons have a list of clients scheduled for the whole day. As such, it is advisable to arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your appointment.  5 to 10 minutes is acceptable, but when you’re late for more than 15 minutes, then the next clients will be affected. It’s not fair to those who arrive on time.

If you really can’t make in on time, please call the salon and let them know. Or better yet, re-schedule your appointment.

Not fixing your hair

A salon appointment usually starts with a consultation with the stylist. The reason why they do this is because they want to get a sense of your personal taste and create a style that will suit your preferences. Showing up at the salon with greasy ponytails can put you at a disadvantage. We’re not suggesting that you should go out of the way and curl your hair, but try to make an effort to fix your hair the way you usually do. You want the stylist can see how your hair looks like.

Not bringing pictures of the hairstyle you want

If you have an exact idea about what you want your hair to look like, bring pictures and then show them to your stylist. This eliminates the risk of miscommunication while ensuring that you get the hairstyle you really want.

Lying about your hair history

Before proceeding with any type of hair treatment, your stylist will ask you about your hair history. This will help them make an educated decision about how to proceed with the treatment or hair coloring, so please don’t lie.

Your stylist will can tell, anyway, whether or not you’re lying, so you might as well just tell the truth. But if you told him/her that you have virgin hair and he/she believed it, chances are you’ll walk out of the salon with extremely damaged hair. Never lie about your hair history.
