We had someone in the salon recently who’s hair was, well lets just say it looked like it had been through the menu of a salon and had everything done in the same day..literally! First off I think its a little weird that some people think a menu at a Salon is like a food menu and they should order everything and at least one of the items will be nice, it simply dent work like that peeps!
When we asked what was she thinking to do all of these things on the one day if at all, most of which she did not need nor should she have done, her reply was really sad. ” I said I wanted my hair smooth, shinny and a little life in the color so they told me I had to do rebounding, all over color with some highlights and a treatment with some layers” I was on holidays the next day so asked them to do whatever could be done, if it all could be done in the one day please do it because I want to look good for my trip. They assured me it could be done, all was well until I left the salon.
Well no surprise, I guess it was more like do it all now please ( as it turns out it was more of a demand than a question and we asked and kept asking till we got to the reality ). Now its not her fault, the reality a lot of hairstylists are ruled by turnover and not results, if it was a results based business they would be most likely not doing half of the things they try and push rather fixing problems. We find a lot of times we end up not doing what is asked, we do less because it is not needed!
Why are we here as a professional salon if we simply do what we are told to do even knowing it is the wrong thing?
Sure WebMd has turned us all into Doctors ( well maybe just us lol ) but it is a far cry to an actual diagnosis or reality, just like reading a beauty blog saying something is good or perfect for everyone does not mean it is the right thing for you, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t but you need to sometimes be told NO.
We will not do what you say always, its called life, we will do what is best for your hair and the look you are after!
