Frugal Solution to Dry Hair
The reason why salon customers become dissatisfied with their stylist usually falls into two categories:
It never ceases to amaze me how clients will chose a hairstyle that does not reflect what their hair will actually do. The first step in making sure that expectations do not lead to disappointment is to take a close look in the mirror. Here are some steps to take when doing so:
Being honest with the way that you look is essential for avoiding frustration. If your color or texture is not working for you, then you have probably chosen someone else's hairstyle that does not fit your personality or lifestyle.
There are many stylists to chose from that can either help you to see the reality of your hair and how it enhances your lifestyle or how it has created a monster that has to be controlled everyday or you won't walk outside your door.
A stylist's ability is either forced or natural. A forced ability in a stylist is someone who has not learned the structure or basics with hair. Therefore, they may not have the confidence to guide you. This means that they may not have a full comprehension of one or all of the following: balance, growth patterns, texture, density and color. Please note that I did not mention facial shape. That is an antiquated approach of determining the shape of a style. I always try to bring attention to the eyes because they are the windows of one's true beauty. Missing any of these important components can take a hairstyle from expectation to disappointment.
Maybe you found a stylist that you heard is great. You decide to set up a consultation. This is the time for the stylist to shine, to win you over with their personality and expertise. Put them to the test by asking them to explain how they see all five aspects of your hair. This is to say that you have a realistic summation of your attributes and challenges. If any of those components do not calculate into reality, then most likely neither will the hairstyle.
Now that you see the reality of your hair, you can choose the best style and stylist. Whether your new look requires 10 or 15 minutes in the morning or is a blow'n go, make sure that the balance, growth pattern, texture or density and color will all work together to make your style complete. And remember, ultimately your outer beauty is a reflection of who you are inside.
