TRIALS OF A SALON

Present Jam: No forget by ADEKUNLE GOLD and SIMI

Heyyyyy,
Howdy?? I recently had my hair done (maybe not too recently). Have you ever had your hair done so badly, that you go home and almost cry…or just cry either from how ugly it looks or how much it hurts? Well, I have, I have had my hair done that I cried on my way home like 10 times or more. Especially when I use so much money to make an ugly hair, sigh… so yeah, I have experience with badly done hair. You might be wondering why I allow this happen to me more than once, well, I trust the hairstylist too much, that I never ask questions looool. Actually, I used to be too timid to speak up… but no more!
You know how you walk into a salon and pick a style, and the hair stylist goes all ‘aunty I can make the style’ but ends up doing something totally different and ugly. It can be a total balls buster. I have combined some tips to avoid going through badly done hair.

 PAY ATTENTION

Salons can be very distracting, so many gist flying around, don’t be too distracted, pay attention to what is the stylist is doing on your head, that way you can notice any fault as soon as possible.

QUESTION THE STYLIST

I used to be too shy to do this, I don’t know why. See, you are paying for the service so ask as many questions as possible, don’t die in silence! Complain when the hair hurts, because if you don’t, you will pay severely for it at night.

ASK TO SEE A MIRROR

If you are not already facing the mirror, ask to see a mirror, this will save you time as you can detect a fault as soon as possible, rather than after the hair is done. Some hairstylist for some reason will be reluctant to give you a mirror, abeg emphasis, otherwise, get up and leave.

STYLE YOUR HAIR

You should style the hair how you like it to  see if it fits, rather than having the hairstylist do it his or her way, as you might have different perspective (most hairstylist I have visited, tends to comb or brush my hair flat, but I like big hair). I will normally pick a comb or brush and style as preferred when I have weaves on and when I have braids, I pack it or style it as desired.

FINISHING TOUCHES

They want you to leave as soon as possible, don’t be in a rush, look at a mirror to detect any errors, and be at alert, this is when they tend to put too much oil or so… decline fast and vehemently if you don’t want this.

I hope these tips helped you, till the next blog post . xx
