How to Talk to Your Stylist

Have you ever entered a salon with the perfect idea of how you want your hair to look only to leave disappointed? In many cases, the salon is not at fault. The problem lies in communication; it’s hard to communicate to stylists exactly how you want your hair to be. To solve the problem, Good Housekeeping consulted a team of hair professionals and asked them what salon guests should specifically ask for when speaking with a stylist.

For a smooth, pumped-up volume style that goes well with long or medium length hair, you should ask for a “blowout with bend.” Your hair will have great shape and movement.

If you want a super shiny and super straight do, ask for a cut that is at least chin length and then ask for it to be styled “straight and sleek.” The hairstylist will use silicone to give your strands a great, glossy sheen.

Have curly hair and want to get it under control? With any curly cut, ask to have it styled so it looks “polished.” You will get perfect curls with nor frizz. If looking polished doesn’t sound appealing, ask for an “undone ponytail.” The stylist will pull back your hair into an easy, casual but clean looking up do.

And lastly, if you want a spunky layered cut, ask for it to be made “piecey.” Salons use finishing products like wax to help separate hair into chunky sections.
