Keep reading to discover all the right things to say, and not say, in order to get the perfect haircut from your Birmingham salon! 

Use Photos as Reference

A picture tells a thousand words; reference photos can be great starting points to letting your hairdresser know exactly what sort of style you’re after. 

It’s very important to source a photo in which the person in the picture has a similar hair type to your own.  Regardless of how talented the stylist is, they can only work with what they’re given. With this in mind, try to find a picture which best matches your current hair type, including texture, length, colour and thickness.

Or if you merely want to brainstorm realistic options with your stylist then our Birmingham based hairdressers would love the opportunity to help you achieve the style of your dreams.

Get The Best Out Of Your Consultation

The best hairdressers will work alongside you to understand exactly what style you want to achieve and the best means of getting you there, we recommend being as specific and detailed as you can be when describing your end goal.

It is also vital to be realistic and honest when describing your lifestyle and level of styling experience. If your schedule is unlikely to permit you using rollers or straighteners every day, then let your stylist know this. Don’t be afraid to speak in detail about how you like wearing your hair, whether its up or down, and what colour or cut would be best appropriate for your day-to-day and working life. 

Our experienced team of stylists will be able to best advise you on what cut is suitable to you based on hair type and lifestyle, working alongside you to identify and create the hairstyle of your dreams.

Be Specific

The interpretation your hairdresser takes on vague phrases like “just a trim” or “an inch or so off” could ultimately be the difference between the haircut of your dreams and having to wait around for months for your hair to grow back to where you were before.

Your stylist has your best wishes at heart and therefore won’t mind if it takes a few attempts to communicate exactly what it is you want from your haircut. The reality is, your version or a “trim” is likely to be very different to theirs. 

A great way to minimise this is to have your stylist show you specifically how much hair they’ll be taking off. This will put your mind at ease and ensure that you’re having the exact amount off you that you desire. 

Get the Low Down on Products

Customers are often willing to spend countless amounts of money on professional cutting and styling services, whilst neglecting the importance of using the right hair care products for their specific hair type. 

Your stylists will be experienced and knowledgeable enough to offer you advice on what shampoos, conditioners and hair styling products you should invest in to have it looking like you’ve just left the salon every time you step off your doorstep. 

Make the most of your appointment by getting expert and professional advice on the best products on the market and where you can find them. Also, you should take the opportunity 

while you’re sitting in the chair to pick your stylist’s brain about how often someone with your hair type should shampoo, condition and even blow dry their hair.

Our Birmingham salon stocks the very best haircare products to have you leaving the building fully equipped to maintain any new style!

What You Don’t Want is Just as Important 

In order to get the best cut possible from our Birmingham professional hair salon, we recommend being as specific as possible with your stylist about all the things you don’t want, as well as what you do

A great way to get the ball rolling with what you definitely do and don’t want out of your haircut is to list the major issues you had the last time you got a cut. Alongside this, it can be very helpful to go into detail about the current problems you have when styling your hair.

Our expert stylists will not only use this information to help you get the most out of your Birmingham salon experience, but they will also be able to give you tips and advice on how to be better equipped to style your new hairdo in the future.
