3 Reasons to Choose a Professional Stylist Over an $11 Haircut
Ever been tempted to save a few bucks by getting a quick hair cut from a chain salon? Just about everyone has. And plenty of people are very happy with that choice.
We get it. A professional salon isn’t for everyone. In fact, price is an important consideration, and it’s always a good idea to ask whether the service you receive is worth the price you pay.
But we also know that those $11 haircuts come with some caveats. We’re not here to pick on your favorite salon, no matter how much they charge. But we do want to share a couple of thoughts on why professional salons are worth a few extra dollars.
- You get to know your stylist, and they get to know you.
Working with the same stylist on a regular basis gives her time to learn your preferences and to make recommendations about what works with your hair. You know that wavy bit on the side that always sticks out funny, no matter what you do? Your stylist will know it too, and can give you a cut that looks most flattering on you. She can also recommend products that work with your hair texture so you can easily reproduce the look.
- If you want a particular look that will take several treatments, you can develop a step-by-step plan and work with the same stylist each time.
Want ash blonde hair, but you’re starting from brunette? That’s going to take a while. You’ll need several appointments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and that’s not something that’s easy to do in a chain salon where you have a different stylist each time.And here’s another consideration. What happens if the cut and style you chose don’t turn out the way you envisioned? Most professional stylists will work hard to make sure you’re happy, even if that means redoing a color or trimming your hair just a little differently.
- Your stylist will take time with you.
The truth about those inexpensive salons is that in order to make money, they have to move people through as quickly as possible. There’s nothing wrong with that if you know exactly what you want, but if you’re uncertain or you need some advice about what will be most flattering for your hair type and face shape, you will love the extra time and consultation a professional stylist can give you.
We’re not against saving a few dollars on a haircut, but we also know that the level of service you receive in a salon like Regency can’t be matched in a chain establishment.
