Be Smart With Your Money

Here’s the breakdown on 13 secrets your hairstylist won’t tell you, according to the website Total Beauty:

  • Find your stylist through a referral and be sure to refer your stylist to others.
  • Saturday mornings are the worst time for appointments; this is their busiest day.
  • Best appointment times are earlier in the week; try to get their second or third appointment of the day as they are settled in but not very tired yet.
  • Schedule a consultation if you’re seeing a stylist for the first time.
  • A good stylist will realistically tell you what can happen with your hair; they probably can’t make you look like Jennifer Aniston.
  • Pre-book your appointment, stylists appreciate loyalty.
  • Do not be late; it challenges the rest of his or her schedule.
  • Tip well; at least 20 percent and tip with cash.
  • Remember to tip assistants too.
  • Listen to their product recommendations; it’s not about the commission (small) but actually something they think your hair needs.
  • Show how much you want cut off; don’t just say “about three inches.”
  • If you seek a last-minute appointment, ask to be on a wait list or speak with the stylist directly.
  • All hair textures cut differently; book extra time if it’s needed.
