There is nothing wrong with being frugal and saving money whenever you can. However, when it comes to hair care, there are several services that are worth a trip to the hair salon. Your hair stylist can perform some tasks better than you will be able to. Over-the-counter products for color, perming and other hair care services are just not as good as what your stylist can provide. Your stylist also has the training and experience to help you look your best.
Whether you want to change your color, cover your grays, or give your hair more dimension, your salon is the place to go.
Professional hair coloring is actually gentler on the hair.
Your stylist is able to customize where the color goes, as well as how much you need.
Proper application and timing ensures that your hair does not suffer from needless damage.
Professionally colored hair remains vibrant for a much longer time.
Over-the-counter products are not customized to each individual.
If you want soft bouncy curls, leave the home perm kits at the store. Your stylist has the right tools, knowledge and experience to leave you with the curls you are looking for. Home perms are known for leaving behind frizzy hard-to-control hair.
Cut and style
The internet has led many to believe that they can easily cut their own hair. They give simple instructions for everything from creating a layered look, to giving themselves a bob cut, to recreating whichever cut is trending at the moment. Unfortunately, very few who try this are successful. Many end up with an uneven cut that they are unhappy with. Save yourself the trouble and let a professional hair stylist give you the cut and style that you want. Bring a photo along and you will end up with a precision cut in the style that you were seeking. Your hair will look beautiful, with no uneven ends.
Your stylist went to school to learn how to cut, color, style and care for hair. You cannot expect to get the same results at home. In fact, many times, clients will end up going to their salon after attempting one of the above procedures. It is much easier and cheaper to have it done correctly the first time than it is to fix the hair after it has suffered damage or a bad haircut. And if you are unlucky, the damage might be too severe to fix.
