Listen To Your Hairstylist in NJ
What exactly is your hairstylist thinking?
Going to the hair salon should be an enjoyable experience. Not just for you but for the person who gets to style your hair. This is their chosen career and they love what they do. It makes their lives a lot easier, however, if you knew a few simple things about your hair.
These hints will make your salon visit significantly less confusing for you, give you realistic expectations and help you to not drive your stylist crazy.
If you want your hair to grow, you need to get it trimmed
Most people think, if you leave your hair alone, it will just keep growing. The truth is that when your ends split, they will split up the hair strand until that hair breaks or falls out. The more hairs that do this, the thinner the bottom of your hair will look. If you get a trim (a quarter to a half inch) to remove the split ends and keep them from splitting up, you will maintain and keep the hair you have longer. This will enable you to have longer, healthier hair.
You are not a celebrity
You will never look like Jennifer Lopez or have her hair because you are not her and just because you bring in a picture of her, it does not mean your hair will be identical. You don’t have the same hair like her and you aren’t going to the same stylist as her nor do you have your hair professionally handled on a daily basis. Pictures are great and hair stylists love them. They will do their best to get as close to the picture as they can but they will make modifications that will make it better for you. Please have realistic expectations this way you won’t be disappointed or get mad at your stylist because you don’t have that celebrity look.
We are not your therapist but we do want to hear about you
It’s a running joke that going to your hair salon is like going to a therapist. You get into the chair and start spilling your deepest darkest secrets. Don’t get us wrong; we want to hear what’s going on in your life. After all, we are taking care of one of your most valuable assets – your hair.
