This article with tips on how to get the exact haircut you want comes from Bustle.
From doing some recon on Instagram before booking an appointment to pointing out things like your hair texture and daily level of maintenance, these tips will help you get the haircut you want — minus all the anxiety.
Rather than just taking a recommendation from a friend, do some recon before climbing into the salon chair and choose a stylist that specifically creates looks that you’re after. Since almost everyone has a smartphone tucked into their back pocket, use that tool to find the person that’s made their career out of creating the kind of wispy bangs or pixie cuts you want. Check out The Moxie Team Stylists page.
If you’ve been burned once or twice before, don’t be afraid to set a consultation with a stylist before you go underneath the chopping block.
Rather than just bringing in one picture, bring in a couple and point out specifically what you like. Your stylist might not pick up on the fact that you like the bangs choppy instead of blunt, or that you like those two face-framing layers. Instead, try to illustrate what you want as precisely as possible.
If you’re the type of person that loves giving herself a blowout every other day, wonderful. But if you like to air dry your hair and run out the door, definitely voice that before they start chopping.
Tell your stylist exactly how much time you spend when styling your hair. This will have a direct impact on your happiness. If you want a high maintenance cut you have to be honest with yourself and your stylist about the work you’re committed to doing to create the look.
Most stylists want you to feel your best and most confident – they’re not in the business of making people unhappy. A hairstylist might see a problem with the haircut you desire and more often than not they are right, so trust the stylist.
Whether you have pin straight hair, tight curls, or all manner of waves, ask your stylist if your cut will work with your texture or if alterations need to be made.
This is another reason to find a trusted stylist. The stylist can advise you on the best version of the cut you like that matches and works with the texture of your hair.
While it can be annoying having a look you don’t 100% love, don’t put so much weight on the appointment. At the end of the day, hair is constantly growing and changing.
