o Bring a friend or a picture of someone whose hairstyle you prefer to show it to your stylist. A good stylist will suggest what he or she can do to give you a similar look. At the same time you need to be willing to compromise.
o If you are particular about the look you prefer in certain areas, for instance a fringe in the front make sure you inform the stylist before he/she starts the job. Do not shriek, “no, not there,” as it can be intimidating for both of you. Telling them what you want, while cutting the hair can be very annoying.
o The key is to communicate. Tell him /her about your lifestyle, your likes and dislikes. This would help your stylist immensely to give you the hairstyle you prefer. Ask question and clear your doubts beforehand. Ask about the products that suit your hair, the color to enhance your cut, or even how to wash your hair.
o On the other hand, do not be pushed into something you are not comfortable with. You need to be confident of your look and feel good about it. After all, you will have to live with the hairstyle and not the stylist.
