After getting a new hairstyle fresh from the salon our hair can do no wrong. However, after a day or so, your new ‘do can start to look less than salon-worthy. To avoid hating a new style, find out what steps you can follow so you get salon-quality styles with your new look, minus the cost of a hair stylist.
How many times have you gotten the perfect hairstyle, cut or color and then the next day hated it? Whether you’ve decide you’ve made a mistake or if you’re frustrated because you can’t recreate the look the stylist did, there are some alternatives you can turn to.
The best way to continue to love and own your new hairstyle is to take notes from your stylist. Being in a hair salon can be very distracting - from the fancy photos on the walls, to the television and even the conversation you’ve having with those around you - these all keep you from focusing on what the stylist is doing. If you want to learn how to keep your salon-quality style after you leave, be sure to ask questions about what your stylist is doing, find out what tools and products are being used. If they are essential to maintaining your ‘do, then purchase them for your own use at home.
For those getting entirely new hairstyles, you’ll want a guide to follow so be sure to ask your stylist what the new regimen for your hair care should be after you head home. Find out if you should be using different styling tools, ask for tips and tricks to maintain your style and if you should change the current hair care products you’re using. It can be easy to try and style your new hairdo the way your old hair used to be. Do your best to break those habits because chances are that your old styles won’t do justice to your new ‘do. If you’re afraid you’ll get tired of your new hairstyle, find out what other styles you can do to switch things up from time to time. Even new hairstyles can get boring if you don’t do anything to it.
Practice, practice, practice! Take some time out each day to recreate the steps your stylist took to achieve your current style. Does your end result not quite compare? Do your best to not get overly frustrated. It takes time to adjust to a new hairstyle and it may take you a bit longer to adjust to caring for it.
Of course the easiest way to get the look you want and continue to own it for days, weeks and months afterwards is to know exactly what you want. Always bring photos to your stylist for reference and make sure that the person in the photo has the same type of hair and face shape as you. This will increase the odds of your liking what you see in the mirror afterwards.
