I can’t help but think about the hair salon that’s so good it’s probably the only place in town where you can pick up a brush and get your hair cut.
I used to shop in the mall a lot and get all that free-form hair.
Now I’m stuck in a backroom where I have to get it done on the spot.
I have to pay more for hair than I did before.
If I go out to a barber or beauty supply store, I’m always worried about going to a salon that doesn’t have the most affordable prices, or that will take forever to get started.
And for me, that’s really not the case.
When I first got into the salon business, I had no idea what a good salon could do for me.
“What do you need a hair cut like?
What about styling?” the stylist would ask.
I had to say yes, and that’s when I started to look for the right salon.
The first thing that I saw in a salon is the clientele.
I’ve seen clients who want a haircut that looks just like mine.
I was like, “Oh, my God.
You’ve got a customer base that’s going to be happy with me.”
I’d go to the salon to do my hair for the first time and I’d always be surprised at how many people were going to have a problem with it.
They’d have one or two complaints.
I’d say, “I know you’re not going to like it, but you’re gonna like it.”
And they’d say something like, I wish I could have had this one cut last night, or this one, or these ones.
There are so many things that make a good hair cut great, but one thing that stands out to me is the people who are here, they’re always so kind.
For a lot of the salon customers, they don’t want to spend money.
They just want to have that hair cut that they’re happy with, no matter what.
In this salon, I’ll see a client who has no complaints, but he says, “This is my second time, I haven’t had a haircut in forever.
It’s been so much fun.
I feel like I got to pay extra for this.”
But then he gets to the hair stylist and says, “It’s time for a second haircut.”
“No, I’ve been waiting for that haircut.”
“I’m sorry, but I’m going to need to cut your hair a little bit shorter.
I’ll need to do a little trimming.”
It’s a beautiful experience.
At the end of the day, you just have to trust your stylist.
But there’s a reason why I call myself a stylist: I know the value of a good haircut.
Hair stylists are experts in what works for me and what works not to work for me when it’s time to get a cut done.
That’s why I do what I do: I go to my stylist for a professional cut and have them do a great job, and when I have a bad haircut, I ask them for a recommendation on what to do.
It can be a lot to ask for.
So I’m not a stylian by any means.
I can tell you the difference between what my stylists say and what they actually do.
