I got my hair cut today and realized that I have been asking them to do the same thing for over a decade now. I always say “I want it cut just below my shoulders and I want it layered”. I realized today that over the 28 or so times I have said this (I only cut my hair twice a year), I have gotten my hair done 28 different ways (with similar results). There was one time where I actually really liked the result while all the rest were just average. I often ask the hairdresser what they think would look good but all except for one never seem to have an opinion. And that one hairdresser’s opinion was to add some highlights in, which I agree would probably look good, but I don’t want to change the color of my hair until it starts to change on it’s own.
Anyway, this had me wondering, what do other people ask for when they get their hair did? Do you bring in a picture and ask them to recreate that? Do you have more technical terms than just “layer it”? I really don’t know much about fashion in general and I never know what to do with my hair. Teach me, you fashionistas! Tell me your secrets. What is a hair cut experience like for you?
