Giving A Haircut Should Always Be Fun...
I find that if you know the goal of what the desired haircut is
the client tends to be more relaxed.
As The Hairstylist- you should NEVER be afraid to ask
what the client wants.. & LISTEN to the answer.
As The Client- you should NEVER be afraid to tell
the stylist what you want- & do BRING pictures.
Not all clients speak hairstylist lingo....
& not all stylist have the same concept
of what "shorter" is....
so yes... DO bring pictures of what you want.
Look At That Neckline!
The Object Is To Make The Client Smile....
Don't Be Afraid To Keep Them In Position. :-D
