How to Have a Successful Consultation with your Hair Cuttery Stylist

Alicia Boal


DID YOU KNOW: Part of every Hair Cuttery service is a FREE consultation!

This is the opportunity for you and your Stylist to discuss your service before it begins and it’s an important first step to making the most of your Hair Cuttery experience.  Here are a few tips on getting the most from your Stylist during your consultation:

2. Bring a photo: Stylists are visual, and it's helpful to see colors or cuts that you have in mind.  Bring images from magazines or print up looks you find on the Hair Cuttery Pinterest boards.  Visit the Get the Look style gallery on Hair Cuttery’s website to see the actual work of our talented Stylists and where they are so that you  get the look you ‘ll love.

3. Reflect on the last appointment: Chat about what you liked and didn't like, hair-wise, from the previous appointment.  It’s important to let your Stylist know what you don’t like.  For example, if you say your bangs were cut too short and show them, then they have a clear understanding of what not to do. Conversely, if you loved a certain shampoo or conditioner or styling product, you can request they use it again.

4. Do some research: Do some research on cutting methods or the color application you may be interested in.  This is  very important information that will make your hair salon experience go smoothly.  You may want “red” hair, but are you considering your current color and what it will take to get to the shade you want?  Will the shade suit you?  Are you prepared for the color maintenance that comes with red hair? Knowledge is power!

Do you have the tools to achieve your new look at home?  Brushes, flat irons and styling products are important to the final look of your service at Hair Cuttery and to your at-home style maintenance.

6. Discuss the FINAL price: It’s best to know the cost up-front so that there are no surprises at checkout time.  There may be additional charges for long hair since more product and time are needed.  You may find getting one of our value packages provides more bang for your hard earned buck.  You and your Stylist will be clear on all aspects and you can now relax and enjoy your time with us.
