What should I look for in a stylist?
When you're looking for a new hair stylist, you want to find someone who's going to listen to you. Understand your hair. What you need and how you want to maintain your hair. Someone you can communicate with. Ask someone for a recommendation. If you see someone with beautiful hair, hair you'd like to have. Ask them, "Where did you get your hair done?"
What are the secrets to beautiful hair?
If you want to have beautiful hair, there are a few tips that you should always abide by. First of all, have a cut that suits you, that suits your hair texture, that suits your face. And something that you can manage yourself at home, not something you can only have done in the salon. So consider a great hairstyle. Secondly, a very important thing to having gorgeous, beautiful hair, is the condition. You can't have beautiful hair if it's not in great condition. Therefore, it's really important. Use a conditioning balm on your hair - once, twice a week, whatever it requires. Some people may only need it once a month, but a deep conditioner is a great idea. Also, after you shampoo, use a conditioner, rinse it out well, and your hair's going to look amazing.
What's the biggest mistake women make in choosing a hairstyle?
When you are choosing a new hairstyle face it, you have to be realistic. Many people bring in a picture of someone in a magazine and want that hairstyle. Sometimes it can happen and sometimes that is never going to happen. You can bring in a picture, but you have to remember in your mind, you might not be able to get the exact style. You have to be realistic. You have to ask your hair stylist and explain to them what you want. Again also if you are looking at a picture of a hairstyle, most likely a hairstylist has spent three hours, two hours, an hour and a half, doing that hairstyle. Therefore, it is not going to work on you. Somebody else has done it. You may not have that hair texture. Be realistic of what your hair choice is.
