Here is a recurring hair struggle that comes up often in my class Finding the Right Hairstyle for You! Heather asks this recently on our class message board;
Does this happen to anyone else? Even after I get a new haircut & hair color, I still find myself blow drying my hair and curling it or styling it the same old way as before. Then my hair doesn’t seem to change much as far as style, unless I go really dramatic. Help!
When you change your hair style . . . pay attention and ask questions! It’s sooo easy to miss the quick steps your hairdresser uses to sculpt in the new shape they have just created for you. You need to step up to the plate and ask questions if your hairdresser doesn’t take the lead in giving you the instructions and how-to’s of styling your new haircut. How you style your hair means everything!
“Bring Your Own
I loved what a swanky salon in San Diego has done for servicing their customers with this problem. Jet Rhys Salon, is run by former Vidal Sassoon specialists and services a wide variety of clientele. American Salon magazine touted the salon as the place surfers, corporate climbers and soccer moms go to get their hair cut. They have a monthly event called, BYOB or Bring Your Own hair dryer. The hairdressers show clients how to use their own tools and hair styling products to recreate the hairstyle they got in the salon.
The clients actually do their own hair styling as the hairdressers show them what hair care products to use and give tips and techniques on how to use the hair styling tools. What a great concept!! I love this event. Pass the word on to your hair salon owner about this new service. Can’t see why they wouldn’t jump on it. In my opinion, it’s a win-win for everyone.
Here are some of Jet Rhys Do’s and Don’ts on hair styling from Twist magazine.
