Okay, let's clear the air. You are not comfortable with trusting just anyone with caring for, and managing your hair. Getting your hair cut and/or colored is very important to you. After all, it is an extension of you and your personality. You want it to represent you in a first class manner and you want to feel great about how you look and feel with it. It is essential for you to have a trusting relationship with the hair salon in Albany that you decide to visit. You must have confidence that they understand exactly what you want or have a clear visual picture of what it should look like.
Here are some simple suggestions to help you find the right salon.
The first quality you should be paying close attention to is the professionalism and attention to detail of the salon you are considering. Further, are they affiliated with any well-established brands or products. Do the hair stylists maintain continuing education in their field of expertise. Finding an Aveda hair salon will be sure to exceed your needs and expectations as Aveda does not partner with just any salon. There are many requirements that must be met to achieve this level of a quality offering. The last thing you want to have happen is your hair is cut shorter than you asked for or the color is way off from what you expected. We have heard nightmare stories of a woman's hair being cut INCHES shorter than desired. You can imagine the level of those conversations. Choosing a salon with affiliations and a staff that invests in their education will always make for a great decision and an outstanding experience.
Finding a salon where the stylists actual listen to you is extremely important. When you find that they are comfortable talking things out with clients, our genuinely engage in listening and asking questions, you will find a higher likelihood that your experience will even exceed your expectations. There is no such thing as too much communication. A warm, welcoming environment where questions are encouraged is a great place to invest your time and get pampered.
Another obvious factor you must consider is establishment hygiene. It goes without saying that the salon should be extremely clean, well-lit, be extremely inviting and comfortable. The staff should be smiling, be willing to go the extra mile to provide you with a great experience. All gowns and towels used should look and smell clean. Again, very obvious but critically important.
Finally, when it comes time to wash your hair, it will be a clear indicator for you as to the quality and knowledge of your hair stylist. She should be asking you, in advance, what kinds of products and treatments that you are currently using. Their objective should be to maintain consistency with what you currently use so your hair doesn't have a bad experience. Also, experiencing a quality scalp massage is pure bliss. Be on the lookout for the patience and thoroughness that she proceeds with this step, if she does at all.
Our suggestion: have a clear sense of what it is you want and invest time considering how you can clearly articulate it to your hair stylist. It is very important for you to be able to convey what you want, even if that means you bringing pictures of styles and colors you like. Remember, a great hair salon will appreciate you communicating what it is you want. They DO want to ensure you have an outstanding and memorable experience.
