This is due to one my biggest family pet peeves in the salon. What do you do if you get a bad haircut? You can get creative with the styling, you can use it up or with a hat for another while. You will find loads of approaches for covering it up, but that is not what I am to discuss here. I am here to discuss your attitude after. Then I find out a week later they are unhappy, and have been saying unkind reasons for having me and/or might work. I cannot even begin to let you know how irritating this is! I am a professional, I could take the criticism.
Well when you tell me everything is perfect that you “think it’s great”, then I learn nothing, because I didn’t know there was a mistake! The next problem with departing the salon without telling your stylist how you feel is that you feel more motivated to inform other folks about your frustrations. Which means you go to friends and family and neighbors and tell them about that one female at that one place and exactly how terrible she does on nice hair.
I wish people wouldn’t normally do this. Not only does it hurt the stylist’s business and career, however the salons are harmed because of it. There are so many variables when it comes to cutting or coloring someone’s hair. Often clients generate pictures and in their thoughts they think that this trim/color will give them a leaner or much longer-looking face, or high cheek bones. Often the color appears so different on the person in the picture than it shall you as well.
The other thing we have to remember is what that picture is usually of. Take for example this picture of Emma Stone. You may think she has a gorgeous auburn/copper all over hair color right? Wrong. Her locks has been dyed with 3 different shades of red with different shades and levels. This gives her a complete lot more dimension and makes the color look more natural. The keeping the various colors also add length and are positioned in a way that makes her cheek bones look higher. It takes an intensive amount more time, and money to do something like this. It is something you can reach a salon, but it is a timely and costly process.
Her makeup and the light of this picture also speaks volumes to the entire look. My point in saying this is that if your stylist doesn’t cause you to appear to be Emma Stone it isn’t her mistake, or yours. But try to be reasonable about what your results will end up like. Not every stylist is for each client and vice-versa.
If you visit a salon plus they stylist doesn’t do nice hair “right” or you don’t think it appears good, then probably the stylist isn’t a bad stylist. She is very talented, and has a faithful clientele probably, but she obviously isn’t the stylist for you. If the miss-communication happened on your part or hers (most likely both) trashing her to friends and family and family isn’t only unkind, but it’s really wrong.
It can also have legal ramifications. Slander charges can be pressed if they can verify that your bad-mouthing or Facebook posts hurt their business or reached clients. In the event that you get a bad haircut you have two options really, go else the next time, or go back the next time someplace. If you get back to the same stylist, you can remind them of what they did last time and inform them what didn’t work for you. That way they already know what you do not want and can “fix” it. If you go someplace else ideally you and the new stylist will connect the same manner.

But what I must say I wanted to hit on in this section is certainly going back again to the same place, however, not the same stylist. It really is okay to ask for not to have a specific stylist. I understand for a fact that there surely is a few people who don’t care who within my salon cuts their hair as long as it isn’t me! I am alright with that.
If I cut your hair and 8 weeks later I see you in somebody else’s chair my feeling isn’t harmed in the slightest. If a salon is found by you that you like their atmosphere, prices, and location, but you have a bad stylist experience don’t take it from the salon. Head to someone different back again, it’s alright!
