Here's the scoop "according to Steph"-
Everyone loves walking out of the hair salon looking and feeling like a million bucks with fresh new hair, but most people are also busy, and let's face it - getting your hair done is a major time suck. You could be accomplishing a lot of other things during during your time in that chair, which is why having a fabulous stylist is so important.
By communicating with me on my level, I mean really getting what I'm asking for when I say red. To me, red is the color I have in my mind. To a stylist, red means a million different shades. It's about figuring out what I really want and being able to talk to me in layman's terms about what's going on with my hair. But like I said, technical skills are not the end all, be all of a great stylist.
Since hair is a people business, you'd think all stylists would be personable, right? However, I've sat in front of stylists that just haven't been personable or even friendly. Sure, my hair turned out fine, but I ended up switching to a different stylist after a few appointments because I simply didn't care to share 1.5-2 hours of my time with that stylist.We didn't click and clicking is an important part of the stylist - client dynamic.
If you're not personable, I'm not sticking around to sit in your chair. My current stylist - and the one I've been with for eight years - fits my bill: she's a superb stylist technically in regards to cut, color, and highlights. She explains colors and techniques she's going to use in ways that I understand. And we get along really well and always have a lot of laughs. Her personality is great and I always get up from the chair smiling, loving my new hair, and feeling like time flew by because of my stylist.
