Moving to a new city is a wonderful, exciting time. You are in a new environment; new home, new work and you are meeting new friends. There is a lot of pressure that comes along with moving, however. Adjusting to life in a new place can be like culture shock and one of the biggest things women face when moving is finding a new hair stylist. Sounds silly but it’s something that can take awhile to figure out.
If you are looking for a new hair stylist, there are some things to keep in mind. In order to find the right fit for you, you need to first look for a salon that fits your style. Research salons in the area you just moved to and find one that matches your taste. Do you like things casual and comfortable, upscale and sophisticated or trendy and modern? Often times, hair stylists will work in a salon that fits their style also. Read our article about finding the right salon for you.
Once you have decided on a salon, call them and tell them what you are looking for so that they may recommend the right stylist in their salon for your needs. Don’t be afraid to ask to interview multiple stylists in the same salon. They won’t take offense. We all understand how finding the right hair stylist is just as important as finding the right doctor or contractor or babysitter. It’s not an easy process!
Look for an experienced stylist. He or she will have had countless hours styling hair and can tell you their background with ease and confidence. New hair stylists shouldn’t be put out of the running, however. If they were trained at a good school and are under the tutelage of someone incredible, chances are, they may be a nice fit too. One of the important things to consider is, will their personality fit with mine? This may sound funny but if you are spending a few hours at a salon every couple of months, don’t you want someone you can talk to? You not only want to talk to them about life and other things, you want them to understand what exactly your hair is all about so that they can take care of it the best possible way. And by having this rapport with them means that if something they do to your hair upsets you, you can tell them without hesitation.

We always want what we don’t have. If you are short you want to be taller and vice versa. The same holds true with our hair. If you have fine straight hair, you long for thick, full-bodied hair. But what if we could just embrace the hair we have and be happy? We would just be a little bit less stressed if this were to happen. When you visit your local hair salon you are most likely asking for a color different than your own or a treatment or cut that turns your hair into something totally different.
By embracing the natural texture of your hair, you are letting go of wanting what you don’t have and in the meantime taking a lot of pressure and stress off yourself. It doesn’t mean that you can’t straighten those curly locks once in a while or put tons of waves into that pin straight hair, it just means you can be happy with what you have right now.
If you have thin hair, there are many ways to emphasize the color or the cut and stop focusing on the fact that it is thin. Try playing with different makeup applications and get a cut that frames your face. Your hair will still look beautiful but the emphasis will be more focused on those beautiful eyes. You will soon learn that thin hair can be a bonus. You can throw it up in a bun and fluff it out a bit to make it look fuller. Be happy with your thin hair because somewhere out there is a girl with curly, out of control hair that is wishing she was just like you.
For those born with curly, crazy hair, we feel your pain. But that wild child look is just one thing about you that others love. You may look in the mirror and see nothing but hair. Big, fat, fluffy hair. We say embrace it! Let that freak hair flag fly! Use the right products for your hair texture to help keep the frizz at bay but make sure you use the right products that also emphasize the curls and give them more definition. Who wants straight hair when you have big, bold and beautiful bouncy locks?
Is your hair somewhere in between? Consider yourself the luckiest girl in the world then! When you have hair that is straight but with a wave to it, not too thin but not real thick either, you have the hair that is easy to control and fun to maintain. You can wear it up or down, straighter or curlier, the choice is yours.
Whatever texture your hair is, the in thing to do these days is to just embrace it! In a world where we are trying to be more natural and organic, loving your hair is one step in the right direction. Take the stress out of worrying about the hair you don’t have and love the hair you do.
