They are polite and friendly
First impressions are important. The moment you walk in, you want your hairstylist to greet you with a warm and happy smile. Hairstylists should make you feel welcomed and comfortable so that you can talk to them about your hair goals and actually achieve them.
They are courteous and good listeners
They should also be good listeners and be able to understand the kind of look you’re aiming for. In turn, a hairstylist should ask you about your hair concerns. Asking questions and making suggestions will be easier if your stylist makes you feel like you’re listened to.
They are professional and creative
A great hairstyle isn’t great for everyone. What you love in a celebrity photo may not suit you. Hairstylists must be able to recognize if the cut or style you’re aiming for will enhance the shape of your face and your features. They should honestly tell you this and provide some suggestions that are right for you. You want a style that not only complements you, but that you can also keep up easily at home. This is important because you want to walk away feeling great about yourself, not just for a day or two, but for quite some time.
They are passionate about their job
This is the most important quality that your hairstylist should possess. You want a stylist who’s happy and excited about what he or she does every day. Being approachable, welcoming, creative, and attentive will come naturally to them because they love their job. And they should always be eager to learn more and stay on top of current products, trends, and research in the industry.
