Get the Hairstyle You Want | Avalanche Salon and Spa Collegeville

What can I do to help describe to my hairstylist what I want? This is one of the most common questions asked when it comes to hair and hairstyles. Luckily, we’ve got some really great tips that we are SO excited to share!

Bring In a Photo

Photographs are the easiest way to communicate with your stylist.  With all of the social media resources like Pinterest, it’s easier than ever to find exactly what you want.  Save tons of photos to your phone or bring them in so you can show your hairstylist your idea – whether it’s a color, a cut, or both.  This way you can avoid any confusion and be on the same page.

Show Your Stylist

“About two inches” or “just the ends” may mean something completely different to your hairstylist than it does to you.  Your best bet is to use your fingers to show exactly how much you want cut and where.

Ask About Products

Pay close attention to what your hairstylist uses during your appointment.  Ask about what their preferences are and offer yours.  This way, your stylist can come up with a combination of products that work best for your hair type and structure.

Talk About Your Lifestyle

It’s important to be honest with your stylist about your lifestyle so they can provide you with the right look.  Are you a more “wash and go” kind of person?  Or do you have the time and skill to style your hair every morning?  Where you work also has an impact on how you present yourself and is important when considering a style change.

Ask Questions!

Most importantly, don’t be shy about asking questions!  The more your stylist knows, the better they’ll be able to fulfill your requests.  Make sure you know exactly what your hairstylist intends to do with your hair and don’t forget to tell them what you like and dislike in a haircut and color.  This will arm the stylist with all the information they need and will allow you to leave with a smile on your face.
