Go with ideas!
Give your stylist as much information as possible. Tear out pictures from magazines, celebrity references, even bring in photos of friends with hair you like! Be descriptive with what you don't want as well as what you do want. These are equally important pieces of information for your hairdresser.
Its good to talk
It's important that you feel comfortable enough to chat with your stylist as communication and building trust will encourage a great relationship with your hairdresser. Don't just think about the haircut you're having right now, but think about the haircut you'll be having in the future.
Your hairdresser will advise you on what's best for your hair and which styles will suit you, as well as recommending colour that will enhance your features and flatter your skintone. Listen to your stylist! Your hair is a representation of their work and they always want you to look your best!
