When you're consulting with a hair stylist and they come up with an idea that you don't like or just know won't give you the look you want, it can be difficult to say no. To help you dial down the awkward a couple of notches the next time it happens, we have some easy tips below.

Be polite

In any situation, the best way to tell someone you don't like something is by being polite and, if possible, constructive. The same rule applies at the salon, too. Tell your stylist that you're sure their idea would look great on someone else, but that you just don't think it's right for you, then explain the kind of thing you do want as clearly as possible.

Don't be too polite

Salons can be intimidating places, but you're paying for what you want, so don't feel pressured into saying yes to something you don't like. And remember, this is what the pre-cut/treatment consultations are all about - giving you the time to discuss what you want with your stylist so you can both work toward a hairstyle you'll love.

Don't feel obligated to pay for extras

If you didn't make the appointment for it, and you're sure you don't want it, politely decline any extra treatments, colors or products.

Go somewhere else

If you just seem to get your ideas across, or it just doesn't feel comfortable, youre totally free to try a different salon. While you research a new place, you can always practice a DIY blowout with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream!
