However, some salons work as a “team” and you may see different stylists from time to time based on the availability of a given individual. This can be good provided
you like a number of the stylists in the hair salon, because it means that if you need an appointment in a hurry and your regular stylist is sick or out, you can see someone else who will be somewhat familiar with you,
or at least have access to your file.
Which is the final thing to pay attention to: a client record should be begun and kept current when you go to a new salon. When you make your initial appointment with a new
stylist at a salon, one of the first things that should happen is a record should be started. The hair stylist will want some personal contact information, and make notes on your hair (texture, color, wave pattern,
etc.) and will note information on everything she does to you in the salon.
If this doesn’t happen, question it. Unless the reason is something like (we usually wait until the third visit with a client to begin a record) you should consider that the salon
views you as disposable, and it will be up to you to maintain all records of what was done if you continue to go there.
So, there you have a few tips on why the client / hair stylist relationship gets so complicated, and some important information on choosing a new salon and stylist. Remember, the bottom line is that you have to be your
own advocate. Put in the effort and you will enjoy the results.
