When getting a new haircut, leaving with the exact look you want can be a challenge. You may have a few screenshots of styles you like, but translating them from smartphone to perfectly-coiffed reality can be complicated. Below are three common mistakes a lot of people make during a hair appointment, and a few pointers to help you avoid them!
1. Going unprepared
When you get a new haircut, you need to think like a boy scout: always be prepared. To end up with a style you really like, you need to really think about the cut you want, and whether or not it will work with your hair type/job/lifestyle.
A few hastily selected Google images aren't necessarily the best guide for your stylist, so spend some time researching your perfect look. It can also be really beneficial to ask a friend to weigh in, as they can give you an honest second opinion, without being rude.
2. Not being explicit enough
Communication is key when talking about your desired cut with your stylist. Describe it in as much detail as possible, and take along a photo (not hastily googled) to give them a clear idea of what you're going for.
3. Not being honest
In a similar vein, you need to be totally honest about the amount of time you're willing to devote to styling your hair. If you tend to do next to nothing, an ultra-groomed look that requires blow-drying probably isn't for you.
Fortunately, products like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty can help you achieve a polished style in mere minutes, but you still need to make your stylist aware of your daily routine.
Motto of the day: Honesty is the best policy!
