This is an area I believe a lot of people are confused about what to expect and what is expected of them.
Make your appointment and be honest. I have seen many people become frustrated just because there was not enough time to do everything or there was too much time allowed and the stylist suffers(silently, of course).
     Here are a few examples of when you should ask for extra time.... *your hair is extra long or thick . *you have curly hair and you want it straightened. * you are not exactly sure of what you want.
Something to consider is a consultation. A consultation can answer all of your questions and give the stylist a better idea of your expectations. These are usually free and are well worth the time.
     Bring Pictures. Even if Laura Conrad's new style isn't the exactly what you were looking for it can help tell a story of what you like and don't like.
Be on time. I know I have a very tight schedule and I can work with you most days, but there are a few where I have no room to take a break. If you think you maybe late call ahead. Most times we can help others it takes away from your experience and limits us.
Turn your cell phone off. This is supposed to be a relaxing time and sometimes we need to tilt and turn your head. If your are on the phone we cannot run our clippers and blow-dryers.
Listen.  I have great style advice to share if you are willing to participate and listen. Yes, I am telling you what products I am using. I choose the salon I work at because of these products. Yes, I believe they work. I use them at home and on my family. Don't get caught in the "Brand" but get caught in the why and how. I have seen people completely shut down because they heard the sales pitch starting. "I am here to help you LOVE your hair. Here are some products that will help you achieve this look at home." I say this because I care.

Now you have the knowledge. What will you do with it?
