“I can’t tell you how many clients come in with hair that hasn’t been washed in a week because they’ve been waiting on me to do it,” says a Hairstylist somewhere in Lagos. “If you’re grossed out by how dirty your hair is, chances are, I am too,” says Tope. Gently shampoo the night before your appointment to make nice with your stylist and get the most out of your hairstylist.
2. Keep an Open Mind
It’s always good to come to your appointment with an idea, but be open to expert advice as well,” says Tope. “What you have in mind may not be the best choice for your skin tone, face shape, eye color, or other features, so be flexible and talk with your stylist to ensure you get the best cut or weave is specifically for you.
3. Bring Visuals
“Pictures are the easiest way to communicate to your stylist what you like and don’t like,” says Linda, a stylist somewhere in Lagos. She recommends bringing in several examples from different angles and in different lighting to get your point across. Be sure to get very specific on details as well.
