Change is Good for YOU and Your Hair

Written by

When your hair is not working for you, nothing seems to go well. You can suddenly feel like it’s time for a major change. Well, a good haircut or color can catapult you into Glam-Queen status. And, that is just the kind of confidence boost that you need to get you out of a “doldrum” rut.

Hair stylists see a lot of clients who have outdated hair. Change is good for YOU and your hair. In Lincoln, we see a lot of long hair that would be better cut short to give the client a more updated look, but it’s hard to move some clients toward change. Ultimately, the client says, “But it took such a long time to grow it out!” Her stylist may not say it, but is likely thinking into what?

Why not change?

Why do people keep the same style for decades? It boils down to simple psychology. People tend to keep their hair in the fashion of a time when they were at their happiest. Take a mature woman who continues wearing her hair long and bleached blonde. She may think it makes her look younger when in reality it makes her appear out of fashion and trying to be something she no longer is. There may be nothing a stylist can do to create a peace about change in this type of client. The client may not be happy. So, should your stylist ethically do something that they know is not right for his or her client? As a stylist, do you refuse the business or bite the bullet?

If you and your stylist work together to define the direction for your hair color and style change, agreeing that it should be gradual, you should be able to embrace it with less resistance. A slight color change with the new haircut could be the sugar that makes that medicine (the cut) go down. Talk it over with your stylist.

Change is Good.

Have you kept the same color and style for years? It might be time to consider a change. Ask yourself why you are hesitant. It is a big step, and it doesn’t have to happen rapidly. Take gradual steps with color. Try a slight highlight or low light to enhance the color you already have. Ask your stylist for input.

Work With Your Stylist.

If you and your stylist work together to define the direction for your hair color and style change, agreeing that it should be gradual, you should be able to embrace it with less resistance. A slight color change with the new haircut could be the sugar that makes that medicine (the cut) go down better. Talk it over with your stylist. Hair is more than about good looks; it’s how you feel about yourself with your new look.

Ask Questions.

It is your stylist’s job to listen to you and answer your hair questions. Don’t be silent and never say, “I trust you to choose the right look.” You might not be as happy as you could be with good communication. . Answer your stylist’s questions, too. Good stylists know to ask the right questions. They understand that your personality, your mood, your job title, your role in life and more play into how you feel about your hair and hair style. If your stylist isn’t asking you questions, it might be time for a new one. However, if you aren’t asking questions; if you are silent in the chair, that won’t work either.
