No one likes a bad hair day. Some days there is more effort needed than other days to feel like your hair is cooperating the way that you want it to. And sometimes it feels like it would just make more sense to head to a hair salon and chop it all off or go for a completely different look. But then again, who doesn’t love the feeling of leaving a hair salon with a fresh new hairdo?
Getting the most out of your hair salon visit
The wonderful thing about heading to the hair salon is that you are almost guaranteed to be happy with what you walk out with, especially if you are visiting a hair stylist that you have come to know and trust. Developing that relationship with your stylist is crucial so that he or she is able to understand just what you like and expect, whether it is a simple haircut or a complex hair coloring saga that turns your head into a rainbow. Finding the perfect hair treatment, style, and hair care products are all heavily dependent on forming that important relationship and understanding between client and stylist.
Keeping up with your style
Some people like to keep their hair styles simple so that it requires as little upkeep as possible. A quick trim every now and then, maybe just a brush and a blow dry to maintain it each day. But there are also those who have a very particular style, and prefer to sport a style more intricate or complex. And of course there are those who just like to spend time being creative with their hair and coming up with new looks regularly for the fun of it. Whatever the case is, you need to find what is most comfortable for you, as well as what best fits your personal style.
Of course, there is no right or wrong approach to hair style preferences, as long as you are being true to what you like best. But the fact of the matter is that most people who maintain their hairstyles end up spending quite a bit of time on their hair in the long run, even if they go for a minimal maintenance style. About 75% of women dye their hair, whether they’re going for an eye-catching bright or pastel color, something natural like brunette or strawberry blonde, or covering up grays. And women between the ages of 13 and 65 will usually visit a salon for maintenance or a major change about two times a year, bringing the lifetime total of salon visits to 104. Meanwhile, men with hair that is about an inch or two long will often get their hair cut about once a month.
Finding your perfect hair style can be exciting and liberating, but it can also be an ongoing process. Have fun with it, and feel free to express yourself!
