Can We Talk? Why Honesty Is Important To Your Stylist And Your Hairstyle

I’m broaching a tricky subject today, but it’s one I know we all need to discuss. Almost every stylist I know has had a client suddenly disappear – no follow-up visits, no farewell conversation. While I recognize this is part of the business and sometimes just part of life, I do care about my clients and want them to be happy with my services. For this reason, I want to talk.

We all lose jobs, suffer illnesses, and deal with other financial hardships that can result in reduced salon visits. I understand this, but I struggle with clients who leave because they didn’t get the exact look they wanted.

You’re unhappy with your new cut or color? Let me know. I want you to be happy, so if we miscommunicated I want to talk about that. I’m human and struggle with assertiveness and confronting unpleasant conversations as much as anyone, but it makes me sad to think people are silently frustrated with their hair.

When you allow a stylist to alter your look, you are…

  1. Instilling trust in them, and
  2. Taking a chance – trying something new

That is an honor for us. Trust me, the person doing your hair understands these facts and wants you to leave the salon feeling fabulous. If you don’t, speak up.

Let’s talk about what’s not hitting your expected result. It is the only way to get to the right place. This doesn’t mean I or your stylist can immediately fix what you don’t like, but it means the client and the stylist gain a better understanding of what is missing or what can or cannot actually be achieved. This gives your stylist a chance to troubleshoot the issue and focus on solutions.

Moreover, it increases the relationship between client and stylist, and helps us work together to get you the style that will make you happy.

Before you leave a salon, never to return, consider discussing your issue with your stylist. You may have just opened the door to a long and healthy relationship with the person cutting and coloring your hair and a whole lot of good hair days.

Take care of you!

Ah-choo! Seasonal Allergies and Your Hair

Denver is currently in a rain-sunshine-rain weather pattern, and this wreaks havoc on my #allergies. If you’re suffering with watery eyes and an itchy nose, you know what hay fever feels like.  As a stylist, I think gels, pomades, and waxes are the optimal tools for style perfection, but during this Spring season you may need to take a different approach. Why? The more product in your hair, the greater the chance of pollen sticking to your style. Continue reading

Gray And Thinning Hair Solutions – Let Me Help

Man or woman, thinning hair is seldom received with positivity. After a lifetime of full locks, the slow or rapid reduction of hair can be jarring. You are not alone, and, your hairdresser has tips to make this change less daunting. Make an appointment and don’t be afraid to be honest about thinning hair and your feelings.

 If you live in the Denver area and want to talk it over, just let me know when you book the appointment. I’d like to plan for a little extra time, so we can kick around ideas. We stylists often have the talent and education to see how a new cut, color, gloss, or treatment may rejuvenate your look and help you enjoy or, at least, better accept the hair thinning you’re experiencing.

Of course, the other issue with aging hair is graying. Some people accept graying hair and transition easily. Most of us do not. Again, your stylist should be able to offer cuts, styles, highlighting, lowlighting, and other color options to help you gray on a timeline that’s more acceptable for you. I can cover gray, blend it, or enhance it. Let’s talk about your hair goals. I want you to love what you see in the mirror.

Holiday Expectations

While I’m wishing everyone #HappyHolidays, I’m aware of how stressful this time of the year can be. Just wanted to send out a reminder that none of us has to have the “perfect” holiday for it to be special. Some years are just better than others, and sometimes we allow our expectations to run beyond what’s real.

I wish you all a peaceful season and hope you see the moments that shine bright through all the chaos.

Salon Updates

Like heading off to school, a fresh coat of paint, a few adornments, and an updated logo have given Daisy Salon a refresh. Even if you’re not in school, treat yourself to a new outfit, lipstick, or hairstyle. Why should students be the only ones who get excited about those first weeks of September?  You deserve a treat.
