Talking to Your Stylist

The key to walking out of the salon looking amazing? Walking into the salon knowing what you want. Check out our list of things to think about before your next visit to the stylist.

Stylists have heard it all, so it’s almost certain you won’t be the first client to bring up thinning hair. They’re sure to have a range of tips and tricks to help your hair look thicker and fuller. Of course, you know your hair better than anyone, and you also know how much time you’re willing to spend on styling it each day. Think about the following questions before your next salon visit:

What’s your hair like when you wash it, and just let it dry – straight, wavy, curly? Do you want to work with your natural hair type, or do you want to achieve a different look? For example, are you a curly girl who wants to go straight?

Are you open to playing around with a new color or highlights? Can you commit to the upkeep?

What length are you comfortable with? Thinning hair often benefits from being shorter than shoulder length, but that might be too big of a change to make all at once if you wear your hair long.

How many styling products and techniques are you willing to spend time with each day? If you’re more of a wash-and-go kind of gal, you’ll want to avoid a style that takes time to create.

Remember, your stylist wants you to be happy, to look great, and feel beautiful. But they can’t read your mind, so be open and honest about what you’re feeling, and they’ll help you achieve your fullest look.
