5. Keep yourself informed. Ask the stylist what kind of products and tools they will be using so that you can know what the process will be. If there is anything that bothers you, or a tool you don’t want used in the procedure, let them know. They will be happy to provide an alternative.
6. It’s good to follow trends but know if the hairstyle will suit you before you decide to go for it. This is not to demoralize you from choosing your desired hairstyle but this is to make sure that you do not return dissatisfied with your look.
7. Talk about your hairstyle and what you want with your stylist so that you become comfortable with each other and at the same time, all your doubts get clarified.
