We’d all like to think our Boise hair salon stylist is a magical genie who can grant any sort of hair wish. However, it’s important to remember that stylists are only human and can’t transform your tresses with the flick of a wand. Even more, it’s important to be realistic about your expectations and see eye-to-eye with your stylist. That’s why unDONE would like to provide you with the following five things you should never do when visiting the salon.
Don’t Lie About Your Hair History
There’s probably nothing more irritating than dealing with a client that lies about previous dye jobs they may have had in the past. Whether you’ve had your hair professionally colored or you made the mistake of dying it yourself, it’s extra important to be honest about your past color history.
Lying about your color history can leave you with unpredictable results in the salon. Even the most well-trained professional can’t provide you with the desired look you are hoping to achieve if you lie. This is because colors can overlap and previous dye jobs can interact with each other leaving you with unpredictable results.
Don’t Have Unrealistic Expectations
While visuals can be very helpful when it comes to showing your stylist what you are hoping to achieve, it’s important not to have unrealistic expectations. For example, just because your favorite celebrity went platinum blonde doesn’t mean you’ll get the same dramatic bleached effect. That’s because most celebrity photos have been filtered and edited so the photo itself isn’t real.
Similarity, the same concept applies to haircuts as you may have a different face shape and features than your favorite celebrity. Since we all have different head shapes, face shapes, features, hair texture, and color, one style can look completely different on someone else.
Don’t Show Up Late & Expect A Full Service
Another irritating thing many Boise hair salon stylists have to deal with is clients showing up late but expecting a full service. A stylists schedule is booked with other clients other than just you and showing up late can really throw off our workflow which can affect the results of your desired look. While we do our best to help you achieve the look you want, we can’t do it if we don’t have the appropriate amount of time.
Don’t Resistant Change
Change is to be expected whenever you desire a new haircut or color. For example, you can’t want a haircut but then tell your Boise hair salon stylist that you don’t want your hair to look shorter. Anytime you cut your hair, it gets shorter. Period. You also don’t want to give your stylist mixed messages by backing out of changes you’ve agreed to halfway through the process.
Being be realistic about your expectations and seeing eye-to-eye with your stylist is extremely important. That’s why unDONE Salon, offers personalized consultations. This allows us to discuss your expectations, establish the length of time needed for the service and gather history about your hair that will affect the outcome of your desired style. A consultation will also provide you with the opportunity to discuss the cost of your desired service since there are many different styles we can help you achieve depending on your wants and needs.
