7 Sentences You Shouldn'T Say At The Hairdresser'S

 

7 sentences you shouldn't say at the barber shop...

Expressing yourself correctly in the hair salon is often not that easy. So that you actually leave the shop with your dream hairstyle, we asked a hair professional to play a bit of an interpreter

7 Sentences You Shouldn't Say At The Hairdresser's
 

1st sentence that you shouldn't say at the hairdresser's: "Only the tips!"

Why?

Because by “tips” we mean about one centimeter, but the hairdresser means the section of hair that has been attacked - and that can possibly be significantly more. "No exaggeration, for a hairdresser a centimeter can often be up to a hand wide, depending on how broken the ends are," says Bastian Casaretto, Aveda Artistic Director, who has been working in the industry for 26 years.

What to say instead:

“I think my current length is good, I just want to bring some shape back into it.” This way the hairdresser knows immediately that it is a matter of trimming only what has grown back in length in the last eight weeks. “And that's about two centimeters,” says Haar-Pro Casaretto. If you get gasps at the thought of too much being cut off, exaggerate a little. And: Emphasize that you would rather come to regrooving more often than just once a year.

2. Sentence that you shouldn't say at the hairdresser's: "I want a pony."

Why?

Because there are at least five different types of pony: the micro pony, the XXL pony, the oblique pony, the compact pony, the fringed pony. So after this one sentence, your hairdresser still has no idea what exactly you were really thinking of.

What to say instead:

Ask the question, "What kind of bangs would suit my face shape?" Advises Casaretto. As a guideline: oval faces can wear any pony, round faces stand side XXL ponies that stretch. A slightly angular face needs a pony that falls softly and balances out the angular. You should also think about how much stress you have in the morning because: “Every pony requires a little bit of styling. The more compact the pony, the more time you should plan in, ”says the hairdresser.

3. sentence that you shouldn't say to the hairdresser: "I was thinking of steps."

Why?

If the hairdresser really takes you at your word, you could leave the salon with big differences in length.

What to say instead:

"I want a little more movement in my hair." That is exactly what most levels expect, explains Bastian Casaretto: "If you express your wish, the hairdresser will, with a high degree of probability, also level the hair, but it will be much more subtle and visually more inconspicuous than if you specifically ask for levels. Because movement sounds much softer and less brutal. ”The nice effect: hair that doesn't hang straight down, but - exactly! - have movement.

4. sentence that you shouldn't say to the hairdresser: "Just one highlight, please!"

Why?

Because the term highlights only describe a technique (with the help of foils, a hood, or incorporated freehand) and does not say anything about the color.

What to say instead:

“Look, I have a photo with me!” You can use this to explain to the hairdresser what the highlights should do - for example, that your hair should be lightened in the most natural way possible. “The highlights can also be dark,” explains hair professional Bastian Casaretto. “For example, I can work black or brown highlights into gray hair so that the gray is less noticeable.” So the best thing is to agree on a color shade using a color card that every hairdresser should have. It is also advisable to think in advance or to discuss with the hairdresser whether the strands should really be visible (keyword "block strands") or whether a natural color gradient should be created.

 

5. sentence that you shouldn't say to the hairdresser: "A bob would be great!"

Why?

“The bob is a hairstyle with 500,000 variations. It can have a pony, be cut with steps, almost touch the shoulders, or, à la Playmobil males, only reach just below the ears, ”explains Casaretto. If you stay with this one sentence, the hairdresser will be in the dark about what you really want.

What to say instead:

“I have a photo of my dream bob with me.” Here, too, it makes sense to bring a picture that shows at first glance which type of bob you have in mind. "Because the bob is so diverse, it really is the smartest thing to use the imagery," says Casaretto. "In addition, I notice with a customer who has photos with him: He has actually already dealt with the subject of a new hairdresser and I know which direction I can go," says Bastian Casaretto.

6. sentence that you shouldn't say to the hairdresser: "I want to change!"

Why?

“Because hairdressers think of short hair 95% of the time when they hear a sentence like this,” says Aveda expert Bastian Casaretto. So the statement is far too general.

What to say instead:

If you do not intend to leave the salon with a short haircut, add the following key phrase to your statement: "... but I don't want to lose a lot of my length." Then it is a matter of working out what together with the hairdresser exactly the change should be. Would you like your straight hair no longer to hang down completely unmotivated, or do you want more volume on the top of your head because your roots are too flat? “A change in long hair can be that you work a very slight layer into the hair that surrounds the face. It's not a big deal, but it brings variety, ”says Bastian Casaretto.

7. sentence that you shouldn't say to the hairdresser: "I just want to get on well with my hairstyle."

Why?

Because the definition of "simple" can be very different. One understands it: wash, comb through, done. Someone else would describe 15 minutes of styling as easy.

What to say instead:

List what styling tools you use at home. "If a round brush is included in the list, as a hairdresser I know immediately that the customer has already had some practice and is ready to invest more time in their styling," explains Bastian Casaretto. "If, on the other hand, someone only speaks of a comb or often combs their hair with their fingers, it is clear to me that I have to work with them to find a cut that requires next to no styling," says Haar-Pro Casaretto.
