How to find Your perfect hairstylist
Whether you just moved the area, been seeing a stylist in town, or have to commute too far, you may be wanting to try someone new! I wanted to share some pro tips on what I would look for when deciding to take the leap and try a new hairstylist.
First thing I would do is go to Instagram! (Not yelp! Surprised?!) This is why- a picture speaks a thousand words. You can tell be viewing a stylists IG what esthetic she is into. You wouldn't ask for purple hair from someone that only posts blondes. You can decide for yourself if her skill is up to your standards. You also probably have a style you love, look for a hairstylist that posts similar pictures. If you look here first, you'll already have a pretty good idea of what your walking into. Less surprises for you!
The best hashtags to search are ones with a city name and then some form of the word hairstylist. For example: #sanantoniohairstylist #sanantoniocolor #sanantoniostylist make sure to click on the tab that has recent posts, not just the ones that pop up first.
The website. This is where you should find out all the technical details and see if it fits into your life. Things like the stylist work days, how to book an appointment, do they specialize in cutting or coloring only, what their pricing is for the service you're looking for. Lots of little things that could make or break the deal.
I would then have a look on Google for the stylists name. Read their reviews, see what their clients love about them and the services they offer.
Once you've found the One, I would reach out via their website or booking app to set up a consultation or first appointment.
Hope this helps with your search!
Until next time,
