To have a hairstylist near me, you need to assess what hair services are appropriate. A hairstylist that you are considering needs to know several factors and having your story ready will go a long way in helping you find the best fit:

  1. Hair type and texture: The hairstylist needs to understand a client's hair type and texture, such as whether it's straight hair, curly hair, fine, or coarse. This will help the stylist determine which haircuts and hairstyles are most suitable for your hair.
  2. Face shape: The hairstylist needs to consider their client's face shape when recommending hairstyles. Certain haircuts and styles can help balance out or complement different face shapes.
  3. Hair history: Although they may notice, the hairstylist you are considering should ask you about your hair history. Have you had any chemical treatments, coloring, or heat styling in the past. This will help the stylist determine what types of treatments and products are safe to use on your hair. In addition, it is important for you to share your natural hair color to determine what shades will work best with your skin tone.
  4. Lifestyle and preferences: The hairstylist should also consider the client's lifestyle and personal preferences. For example, if you have a busy lifestyle and don't have a lot of time to style your hair, the stylist may want to recommend a low-maintenance haircut or style.
  5. Scalp and skin condition: The hairstylist should ask about any scalp or skin conditions that the client may have. This will help the them recommend products that are safe and suitable for your hair and skin.

Putting your story together will help you assist any hairstylist you are considering in assessing whether they can be of service to you. More importantly, having your story will save you time and trouble in assessing whether whom you're considering is a true fit for you. Not to mention that many a hairstylist will be impressed out of the gate on how prepared you are. That makes you a more desirable client.
