As a client it’s your job to ask your stylist all the important questions on caring for the
hairstyle you have chosen. This includes: “What product should I use?” and “What styling tools are best for this style?” It also means that
you need to make sure to watch the stylist as he or she styles the hair, in order to learn the little tricks that are so often key to
making a style look the same time after time.
And when you’re getting a brand new look, expect to take as much as twice as long as the
stylist needed at the salon in order to create the look at home. This isn’t because of any deficiency on your part it’s just a matter
of practice. Remember, while you get up and style your hair every morning, the average stylist does the same thing, and then spends
his or her entire day doing the same thing for dozens of other people. You’ll get faster, but expect a learning curve.
If you spend the time to get things sorted out before you get a new look, you can make better
decisions on what works for you and what you can work with.
