Sometimes when I don’t have a client’s colour – either because we’re out of it or because I forgot to write it down last time – I don’t say anything and just mix something new
If you think I’m applying what you had before, you’re much less likely to complain.
I know you’ve heard you shouldn’t wash your hair before getting an updo, because a little grit can help maintain the style
But please don’t show up with hair that’s greasy, tangled, or smelly. Wash it the night before, and don’t put any styling products in it. That way, we hairdressers can start fresh and create our own texture.
Every year after school starts, at least one mom brings in her daughter with hair down to her waist and tells us to give her a pixie cut
We know what’s going on: a lice infestation. But when we point out the nits and tell the mum we can’t do the cut, she always acts surprised and says, “I didn’t know.” We’re thinking, Yeah, right. To save the embarrassment for all involved, get the situation under control before your appointment.
