When out socially over the years being a hairdresser can be an up there with being a Docter when you tell someone what you do…
The stories tumble forth of haircuts or colours that were not quite right.
Now, of course, the first thing to consider in these situations is
Was the hairstylist qualified or any good?
Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.
But beyond that when you talk to people a pattern seems to begin to take shape…
People generally not being listened too.
Now, of course, some people might say but aren’t the hairdressers the experts?
My reply to this is…
A great hair cut is as a result of what WE know and what YOU like.
What we know is based around suitability, face shape, hair type, head shape and many more factors.
But what you like is your preferences your passions and the things you really don’t like.
With a great consultation, you can get clear on the areas and issues to avoid, like cutting hair too short or fringes that make people not want to go out for a week or two!
Then apply the knowledge in the correct places.
Sounds obvious, doesn’t it….
But believe me, in 40 years of hairdressing assuming the hairdresser is of a good standard the chances of the haircut being what you want will increase or decrease significantly due to the effectiveness of the consultations.
And before you think it. I apply this to myself.
This is why this year we increased my cut and blowdry appointment times.
To really make sure we have the time to start right so we increase the chance significantly of giving you the result you want.
It ain’t a perfect science but its more likely to work than a stylist making a broad guess and doing what they want or think versus what you actually want.
