No More Bad Haircuts
How to Avoid a Bad Haircut
Follow these tips to keep hair disasters at bay:
- Frequent only the stylist whom you trust and with whose work you are familiar. Don't try a hairdresser on a whim. Go with someone recommended.
- No matter what your relationship with your stylist, always have a thorough discussion first to ensure you are both clear on your desired results -- before the scissors touch your hair.
- Be sure your pre-cut consultation includes a discussion of what you like and don't like about your present cut. If you are visiting a stylist for the first time, show pictures of yourself in past styles. Do bring photos of models and celebrities whose hairstyles you like. They will help communicate your personal style and what you envision for your hair.
- Your first cut with your new stylist should be a subtle one. If you're satisfied with it and the way it grows out, go for a more dramatic style.
