No one likes to break up. The tears, the heartache, the agony of it all. So when we find a hair stylist we like, we want to keep them forever. However, sometimes, you may have to break up with your hair stylist. It’s not something you want to do but, for the sake of your hair, it is sometimes necessary. How do you know when it’s time to break up with your hairstylist and find someone new? These telltale signs will help you to figure it out. If the signs are there, it’s time to move on.
She doesn’t listen to you
If you want a particular style and you walk out of the salon with something completely different, this is a huge red flag. If your hairstylist doesn’t think the style you want will look good on you or is even feasible, she should be honest enough to tell you so. But to give you a style completely different just because she thinks she knows what’s best for your hair is a big giant no-no.
She has no idea how to cut your hair
I have half straight hair (on top) and half curly (on the bottom) hair. Due to chemotherapy, my hair came back with a whole new life of its own. My hairstylist had no idea how to cut it. None whatsoever. Instead of telling me she had no clue, I kept leaving the salon with a cut that was totally wrong for my hair type. I found a new girl who actually asked her boss (the salon owner) for advice. She admitted she wasn’t sure but instead of winging it, she went to someone with more experience than her. I admired her for that and now she “gets me.”
You never leave the salon feeling refreshed
When you experience a hair salon, you should walk out feeling good, confident, and totally relaxed. If you leave as stressed or more stressed than when you walked in, you need to walk out and keep walking. No salon should ever make you feel like you just took a trip to the dentist. They want you to feel comfortable and relaxed when you are there. A salon is an experience and you should always leave feeling refreshed.
She constantly tries to pawn products on you
A good hairstylist knows that most people aren’t going to spend $100 or more on hair products. Just because she is using those products on you in the salon, she is fully aware that they are pricey. If you show an interest in what she is using then she should explain what it is and what the price is and leave the decision to you. Just keep in mind also that you aren’t going to get the same results at home if you aren’t using the products that they use in the salon.

Hair trends come and go but there’s a set of cuts that have proven to stand the test of time and therefore, will always be in style. While your favorite celebrities aren’t afraid to take chances and go for dramatic changes, many stars have one haircut they always return to. Do you have a signature style that you return to all the time? Does your hair stylist know they can count on you to stay with the same style? Even if you like traditional cuts, it’s always good to switch it up from time to time as well.
You don’t have to go with a current trend but maybe one of these time-tested cuts will make you take a second glance.
The textured, side-swept pixie is a timeless classic. Think roaring 20’s short do. A layered pixie cut is an adorable yet sexy look. Most women think they could never wear a pixie but the truth is, this is a cut that does look good on most women.
Bangs are always in style. Yet, not every woman can wear them. Bangs frame the face so make sure you are ready to have all eyes on you when you are sporting bangs. Blunt bangs are bangs that are cut straight across with no framing of the face. They are a showstopper for sure and super bold for some.
Wave and volume
Think big, cascading volumized waves. It is a bombshell style with a soft touch. Long bouncy locks with face-framing layers are also a version of the classic wavy style. Keeping it long with wave and volume never goes out of style.
An ultra-smooth style parted down the middle is super sleek. Using a flat iron to get hair perfectly straight is the key to this style. It is a classic and timeless cut.
This is another cut that has been in style forever. Ever since the turn of the century when women were getting bold with their fashion, the bob has been around to make a statement. It’s another result of the roaring 20s and beyond. It has been altered over the years but the idea is always the same.
Curls, curls, curls
There is nothing quite like a head full of curly hair. It’s why so many women were getting perms in the 1970s and 1980s. Everyone wants curly hair and this style never goes out of style! If you are blessed with natural curls keep them tight and free from frizz. It will keep your hair tamed and shiny.
Some cuts and styles will never go out of style and those depicted above are some of them. If you are looking to make a change to your hairstyle, talk to your hair stylist about keeping it traditional with one of these cuts but altering it just so that it is current and on trend to today’s looks.
