One of the most helpful things you can do when you are about to try out a new style or cut is to show your stylist pictures of what you want. This will give them a better visual of what you are asking them to do. In turn, miscomunication can be reduced and the chance of better results increases. Not only that, but having a picture can be used as reference for what you want and what can actually be done. A good stylist should be able to replicate the haircut and style that you want in accordance to your hair characteristics.
Take this picture for example. Here you can see that the cut, color and style has been replicated to suit her hair. The cut on both the model and client is very similar. They both have the short sides, both have the hair coming forward, both have the light hair, and both have the green color in the fringe area.
In this picture, the client has used the hair model’s picture for hair inspiration as well. Although it is not an exact replica, the stylist has used the picture as a reference to cut, color, and style her client’s hair to suit the desired style to her client’s hair. Again, the major similarities can be seen here. Both have the sides cut short, the tops are colored, and the tops are longer with an edgy style and feel to them.
Tara, one of our stylists, uses and encourages her clients and future clients to bring in pictures of what they want. She can then replicate the cut, color, and style so that it suits your hair needs and your lifestyle.
In case you were wondering…yes these are pictures from a real client who actually comes to Tara at Fandango. She is an actual client #nottakenfromtheinternet #realclient #hairspiration
