Have you ever walked out of a salon wondering what went wrong? You had a clear vision of the cut and style you wanted, but the results weren’t quite what you expected? Here’s a few key statements to avoid, helping your stylist create a hair style you’ll love.
“I don’t need a consultation”
It may be tempting to skip the consultation to save time, but it is really is essential. A good conversation about your hair type, the style you’re after and how much time you have to style it in the mornings will help your stylist immeasurably!

“I Love it, really!” (but you don’t)
When it comes to your hair, honesty is the best policy. If you are unsure about the colour or length, its best to let your hairdresser in Bournemouth know as soon as possible. If the end results aren’t what you wanted, speak up and let your hair stylist know. This way you can work out an alternative together to get the right cut and style for you.
“I know exactly what I want, but I don’t have a photo.”
Even if you know the exact colour, length and layers you want, explaining it accurately can be tricky. You might know your hair terminology inside out, but a photo is the best way to help your stylist understand the look you want. A picture is worth a thousand words!
“I want to go from black to platinum blonde. Can you fit me in today?”
Be mindful that drastic colour changes need time and care to complete. Any professional stylist will tell you that extreme hair colouring will take a few appointments. This ensures your hair is carefully lightened with foils and professional techniques to protect your hair from damage. If you attempt to bleach it all in one go, your hair will be dry, thin and may even fall out!
If you have experienced dryness or damage from hair colouring, treat yourself to an Olaplex intense hair repair treatment.
