Your haircut is the one thing you will wear 24 hours a day for the next 5/6 weeks so it’s well worth choosing a salon you can rely on to make sure it’s right. Your haircut is the foundation for styling your hair. It incorporates balance, line and movement. Below are our five top tips for ensuring you get a perfect haircut.
GET YOUR HAIR SHAMPOOED AT THE SALON
Not only is the experience of having someone shampoo your hair indulgent and relaxing, it ensures a more precise haircut as your hair is correctly prepared. At John & Associates in Tattershall a scalp massage is standard practice, it’s not just a ‘nice to have’ but also stimulates blood circulation to the hair and promotes healthy growth as well as helping with hair loss. We don’t offer dry cuts as a service because getting the perfect balance to your haircut on dry or unclean hair is impossible. This is made even more imperative with the hygiene requirements due to Covid-19.
HAVE YOUR HAIR BLOW-DRIED
When you let us blow dry your hair, not only do you get to see the potential of your haircut, we can also see where changes need to be made. We can tweak your fringe, make sure the balance is perfect and refine your style to your liking. Not only will you leave our salon looking and feeling your best, the blow-drying process allows our stylists to thoroughly inspect and check their work; so you can be sure your haircut will be easy to style at home.
HAVE THE CORRECT POSTURE THROUGHOUT YOUR HAIRCUT
Our styling chairs are comfortable and supportive, our stylists will guide you to ensure that you have the correct posture during your haircut. A twist in your posture during your cut can cause an imbalance in your hair cut so it’s really important that you are sitting correctly throughout.
Correct posture is also really important for our stylists. Our stylists have cutting stools available to them, meaning they are cutting at eye level so they can closely see every detail of your haircut. This also ensures their work is consistent throughout the day as the option to work seated means they are physically less tired.
BE PREPARED FOR A TWO WAY CONSULTATION PROCESS
We do a thorough consultation so we can be sure your hair style is suitable for your lifestyle, your hair type and takes into account your face shape and hair growth patterns. Our consultation is a two way process so give us as much information as you can. Bring visuals – a picture is worth a thousand words. Throughout your consultation and haircut you will have the undivided attention of your stylist, they’re not chatting to anyone else but you and their attention is fully focused on you and your hair.
REBOOK BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE SALON
Don’t leave it until your style has grown out and you can’t style it. Hair grows at a rate of 1-1.5cms per month so a short hairstyle will need a trim every 5-6 weeks. If you rebook your appointment before you leave the salon, not only will you have an appointment organised when you need it but you’ll have more choice of times to suit your schedule. We’ll even send you a reminder text 24 hours before so you won’t forget.
