Cutler’s Steps to Get a Good Haircut

rodney cutler cutler salonStylist, Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salon, shares several tips that will ensure you get the perfect haircut the next time you enter a salon.  Read and learn I know we all have made mistakes when going to a salon. 

 

  1. Style your hair before going to the salon. When you arrive at the salon, we want to see your hair the way you normally style it. We want to see your abilities, so that when we design a hair style, you can actually do it yourself. You don’t want to get a haircut and then get home and you can’t manage it.
  2. You should never do a consultation with wet hair. The consultation is the most important thing and it’s when the biggest mistakes happen. We want to see your hair when it’s dry, what the texture feels like, if there are any colics or other qualities we might not detect when the hair is wet.
  3. Show your stylist photos of hairstyles you like. It’s not about trying to look like a celebrity, but about saying “This is what I like,” so everyone’s on the same page.
  4. Posture is important during a cut. When you cross your legs, you tend to lean in one direction. Keep your legs uncrossed and sit up straight. Otherwise, you might end up with a crooked haircut. And you need to have your head flexible, but not so wobbly like a bobblehead doll.
  5. Speak up when you’re not happy with the haircut. Salons don’t always get it right. Don’t be afraid to say something if you don’t like the cut. The hair salon wants you to come back, so they want to make sure they provide you with a cut and style that you love.

4 Steps to Keeping Your Hair Healthy

Damaged Hair CuticleDoes your hair looks like it went through a small forest fire? Follow these simple steps to retain and regain lustrous shine and body in your lifeless locks.  


Get Your Haircut

Although last on our list, receiving a good haircut or trim is especially important in maintaining the overall health of our hair.  Ideally you should be receiving a trim every 6 – 8 weeks.  A routine haircut will rid your hair of both split ends and dryness which contribute to the lackluster look of your hair.  Getting a haircut regularly will reduce dryness and frizziness and will allow your hair to radiate health

Don’t Over-Shampoo
Did you know that over shampooing your hair can strip your scalp of vital oils which it needs to stay healthy?  Simple answer; do not over-shampoo!  The solution is to shampoo your hair every other day.  This will allow the oils in your hair to penetrate the scalp and increase the health of your hair.  Of course you can rinse your hair daily but limit the shampooing.

Deep Condition

A monthly deep conditioning treatment with either your regular conditioner, deep conditioning treatment, or any oil you have at home is a great way to increase the health of your hair.  Set aside a few hours each month and lather the conditioner/oil on your hair and scalp.  Allow the conditioner/oil to sit in your hair for anywhere between 5 minutes and an hour then shampoo as normal. You will immediately notice the difference! 

Let Your Hair Rest

As we all move on to professional grade hair appliances with more power and more heat it is important for everyone to let their hair rest.  Taking a week off from the normal drying, curling, and ironing and allowing your hair to naturally dry is an important step in helping to keep your hair super shiny and healthy.
