How do you know if you’re getting a great men’s haircut?
First, look for hairstylists who keep an eye out for current fashion trends so that you always have a sharp edge and crisp appeal. He or she should always be able to tell YOU what is going on in Hollywood and in today’s media as well as regionally in the three areas of your city: Uptown, Midtown and Downtown.
Second, keep an eye out for cleanliness. Fresh combs and razors are basic know-how so be sure your hairstylist is on board. Towels used to steam your face should only be used for facials and should never be the same towels used for color and other chemicals. Knowing that your salon professional has your safety and hygiene covered helps you relax and have a good time during your cut.
Finally, your stylist should always take a few minutes and do at least a mini-consultation to better understand your changing needs. Even if you want the same haircut as last time, this is the chance you two have to sit eye-to-eye and talk about it.
