What to Look for in a Hair Stylist [GUIDE]

What to Look For in a Hairstylist

Looking for a new stylist can be an exhausting and traumatic experience, but not being pleased with your stylist or not having a stylist at all can be damaging for your hair. Looking for a new stylist doesn’t have to be as difficult as it once was.

That is why our stylists at Anushka Spa & Salon have developed a list of items to look for in a stylist to help you with your search.

Is Your Hair Stylist Truthful?

Honesty is a huge characteristic when it comes to providing a quality service, especially when dealing with hair.

Typically, most people will go to a hair salon that provides what they want whether it be color or styling, however, after your stylist looks at your hair they recommend a Kerastase treatment. 

When choosing a stylist, you want to be sure that your stylist is making truthful recommendations for your hair needs and provides a reasonable explanation for your added expenses.

You’ll also want a straight forward stylist in terms of telling you when specific services will further damage your hair. Some stylists will just do whatever you ask for without telling you the damaging effects. While those stylists will get the job done, your hair may not thank you after. Having a stylist that is willing to tell you the truth about your requested services is definitely something to look for.

In addition to a stylist being truthful about what is right for your hair, having a stylist that is mindful of your time is a whole other thing. A great stylist will let you know if they are running late, overbooked or unable to confidently give you the care service you are looking for.

A trustworthy stylist is not only right for your pockets but also your time.

Your Stylist Cares About Hair

Anyone can do a cut style or hair coloring but not every stylist is as knowledgeable or caring when it comes to the care of your hair.

Any state licensed great stylist cares about your hair worries as well as maintaining the natural strength and health of your hair. It’s easy to tell if a stylist cares about your hair based on the types of questions they ask. If your stylist has been taught anything by the salon owners, your stylist will request a consultation prior to coloring in order to not destroy your hair as their new client.

If your stylist is full time you may be able to find out more about your stylist before you even sit down in the chair. Most of our stylist at Anushka Spa & Salon are full time and will take time out of their schedule to answer any questions you may have.

The Stylist Can Do Your Hair Style

Our clients at Anushka Spa & Salon have a go-to stylist for each segment of their look.

While some clients typically only come in for shampoos cuts and color, others come in every few months for hair extensions and updos.

Our stylists at Anushka Spa & Salon are not afraid to recommend another stylist in order to give our clients the best customer service.

Be sure to find out what your stylist’s limitations are and ask for referrals if they tell you that a specific look or service is not their forte.

The Hair Stylist Has Good Communication

Your new stylist needs to be great at communication.

Communication with your stylist about added fees, changing appointments and hair care are essential when building a relationship with possibly one of the most important people in your life, your stylist. A stylist that is comfortable with being honest and communicating with you will help to ensure you receive the intended results when you visit the salon.

Your Stylist Has an AMAZING Reputation

You’ll know if you have found an amazing stylist based on not only their recommendations but also visual proof of their work. We can’t help but rave on our stylists and their social media presence to provide you with not only pictures but videos of their work.

A great stylist will have excellent reviews and lots of comments on their work even from other stylists. Going to cosmetology school alone does not qualify them for great work, their clients do.

We have heard endless stories of clients having poor experiences with other stylists who after further review have other negative reviews. Those are the ones you will want to steer clear of.

Do not take all of their reputations at face value; take surveys and recounts into consideration.

Your Hairdresser is Always Willing to Change Things for You

It can be so difficult to tell your stylist that you don’t LOVE your look. You should not only feel comfortable with letting your stylist know but they should also take the initiative to fix your look before you leave the salon. Instead of looking in the mirror and hating your look, then crying in your car. Let your stylist know.

If you have followed the above qualifications for a great stylist for you, they should be more than willing to help fix your look so that you love your hair before you leave. If you don’t love your hair when you leave the salon.

A great stylist will be more than willing to help change your look without even asking. No excellent stylist will be willing to let you leave their chair without complete confidence in your look.

Finding a great stylist isn’t just great for your hair but its also a confidence boost. Knowing that every time you go to your hairstylist you are going to leave feeling even better than when you walked in is pretty much everything in the hair world.
