This can feel like such an almighty task especially if you’re in a new city and don’t know where to start. I am here to help you! When you find the best hairdresser for you it should feel like going for a coffee with a friend you can’t wait to catch up with.
Firstly I would ask around because word of mouth is such a powerful way to be recommended to someone. If you’re in a new area check facebook groups / forums and see who is highly recommended by multiple people.
Secondly I would search for a hairdresser who is an expert in what it is you want to do to your hair. For example if you want a bright balayage I am your girl but if you’re looking for a short pixie cut I would have to say no. No hairdresser can be amazing at everything so find someone who specialises in what you’re looking for.
You might have narrowed it down to a few now. I would follow them on social media or even book in for a consultation before your appointment. This way you can get a feel for them as a person and if you would be happy to sit in their chair for a few hours.
Hair appointments are a super personal thing. People talk to their hairdresser like they would talk to a therapist so It’s important you are comfortable with them and know they understand what you want to do.
Then when you’ve found your perfect person, lock them in. Book your appointments in advance and hope they don’t move abroad because adding an air fair to the salon bill gets costly.
