Ten Things Not to Do to Your Hairdresser

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

As part of my ongoing efforts to help you to improve the quality of your hair-care, I am changing the emphasis from “hair-dos” to “hair-don’ts”
Is there anything that could be hindering you from receiving the best possible style?
What about your relationship with your hairstylist? You may be causing a break in that relationship it without realizing it.
A nervous or irritated stylist will not be as likely to perform the creative wonders that are important to you.

After conducting a survey of hairdressers, I have compiled these suggestions for you, the client.

  1. Don’t be a “No Show” This is a hairdresser’s nightmare. It causes a vacancy in the schedule with no income. Please give twenty-four hours notice to allow time to re-fill the appointment. If you completely forget the appointment, offer to pay for it.
  2. Don’t be late. Hairdressers work on a schedule with a certain amount of time allotted for each appointment. One person running late will cause the hairdresser to be off schedule for the entire day!
  3. Don’t allow your children to run through the salon, climb on the furniture, or interfere with equipment and retail displays. This is dangerous for the child as well as distracting, not to mention unnerving, to the hairdresser.
  4. Don’t be a “Check-book forgetter.” Your hairstylist loves you but she plans her budget according to her scheduled clients. If you do forget, try to return the same day for payment.
  5. Don’t be a “Please squeeze me in”er. Even though she cares about you and will make every effort to work you in, you are likely to be confronted with a tired hairdresser who is now off schedule.
  6. Don’t be “Always unhappy” with the way your hair behaves. This is very frustrating to your hairdresser, who is making every effort to please you. If you truly feel that your needs are not being met, it may be time to find another hairdresser.
  7. Don’t be a “Cell-phone user” Have you wondered why your haircut is lop-sided?
  8. Don’t sit and chat long after your hair is finished. Remember scheduling is important and respect the need of the next client.
  9. Don’t be “Contagious”. I know a new hairstyle might make you feel better but please keep your hairdresser’s well being in mind.
  10. Don’t offer advice on the technique used to cut your hair. After the preliminary consultation, let the professional do the work.

The hairdressers I interviewed value the friendships they have developed with their clients, many of which have endured for decades.

Being aware of these common irritations that can upset that important relationship will lead to a more relaxed and rewarding experience for everyone involved.

Beautiful hair begins with great condition.
Quality products formulated for your hair can make the difference between fabulous hair and an ordinary 'do'. Seasonal Specials at LC Legacy Hair Care Visit Often.
