Do you ever feel like you stylist hop? Going from stylist to stylist, but you still can’t find someone who understands you and your hair? This is rough and we’ve all been there. There is really no guide on how to choose a stylist, which is why it can be so difficult. That's why we wanted to share some of the ways that we pair up our Boutique Babes with their stylists. We hope this helps you as well.
♡ What type of hair do you have?
The hair type list is long: fine, thick, curly, coarse, blonde, brunette, red, etc. Each one of us has a very unique head of locks and it is important to find someone who understands them. When calling a salon or looking for a stylist, some good things to look for or ask for are their specialities. If you have fine, brunette hair try to find someone who specializes in this. This will give you the confidence that they have an abundance of experience for your hair type.
♡ Are they active?
Social Media is huge in our industry and every stylist knows it. An active stylist who is passionate about their career will be posting and educating their followers on a regular basis. This is also a great place to look for their most common pictures and if they match your style, vibe and hair goals.
♡ Are they within your budget?
Never feel afraid to ask about pricing. We promise you, it isn’t awkward and we want you to be informed. There is nothing worse than loving your hair to then be sticker shocked knowing you’ll never be able to return again. At Brooke Bauer Boutique, we go over pricing during your consultation to ensure we are both on the same page. We also offer a wide variety of stylists with different price ranges. If you want a long term stylist, this is important to know.
♡ Do you like them?
If you’re struggling to find a stylist, I highly recommend doing a consultation prior to booking with them. Whether that be via phone or in person, consultations are a great way to feel someone out. Finding a hairstylist is like dating. Why do think it is so hard to leave your long-term stylist relationship?
Which brings me to the last one…
♡ Don’t just stay to stay.
If you’re feeling unhappy, bored or just not in love with your hair, you’re not with the right stylist. You should feel fresh and obsessed with your hair when you're leaving the salon. (unless you are working towards a long term hair goal, of course.) It truly is just like dating and you deserve to feel happy and confident.
