Stylists who deal with fussy clients have a lot to say but they don’t. In addition to the stress of having to take care of another person’s locks sometimes they have to deal with unreasonable clients or difficult personalities that are simply making life hard for both themselves and the stylist ignoring the fact that for a truly good cut or colour or any kind of treatment, you need to cooperate with your stylist. Here are some things that stylists wish you would understand before walking through the doors of their salon.
They are stylists and not magicians
Many clients expect their stylists to magically make them look like a celebrity. While they definitely can up your style quotient and use some hair extensions if needed to add volume and create that aura of glamour you are looking for, they cannot change the face that you have or how the structure of your body will carry off the look. Getting a short crop will not make you a look alike of Halle Berry, in other words. This is why sometimes stylists find that many clients are not satisfied even after the process has been completed well. Go in with realistic expectations. You are expecting a makeover and not plastic surgery.
The bottom cost for a process is non-negotiable
The salon is not a place where you try to bargain your way through to a treatment or process. Understand that in addition to the salaries that need to be paid, there are also products to be paid for, time, bills and effort taken into consideration when prices are given. Besides, if you have approached a good Campbellfield hairdresser, they will give you back your money’s worth as well. The cost that they mention or the range is non-negotiable. If they tell you it will cost between hundred and two hundred dollars do not think of bringing it down to eight dollars, that is not how it works.
If they say ‘no’ they have reason almost always
Would you go to a doctor if you have the flu or an engineer? The answer is obvious because different people specialize in different skills. When you approach a stylist for your locks, know that they are better informed than you are about what they have to do. You do not need to teach them anything and if you cannot trust them, simply o to another place. But obstructing what they have to do, criticizing them while they work on you, not understanding their reasoning behind refusing a particular treatment for you, will only put you in trouble.
