For one reason or another, visiting a hair salon can be a daunting experience for some. At Headspace, we want to make you feel relaxed, refreshed and blown away with your new hair style/colour. In this blog we’re going to share a few tips, to help you get the most from future hair appointments.
BOOK A FREE CONSULTATION
Like many hairdressers, Headspace offer a free consultation. That said, you will find ours much more in depth than most. We see the consultation not only as great way for your stylist to find out a little about you, your hair and your requirements, but also for you to get a feel for us, even before we book you in for your appointment. A skin and strand test will also be carried out during your consultation, which is a great benefit as everyone’s hair varies in texture and condition.
TO WASH Vs NOT TO WASH
We personally prefer hair to have not been washed for 24 hours when you attend your appointment. This will make our work easier when colouring and also means your natural oils will be present to protect your scalp.
Condition the mid-length to ends of your hair only as your roots produce your natural oils. Try and leave a deep conditioner on as long as possible. Wearing a cap (even clingfilm) can help keep in your natural heat.
ARRIVE ON TIME
We all know that sometimes situations arise that are out of our control, but please be as punctual as possible (we appreciate clients being 5 minutes early). This allows us sufficient time to carry out your service in full. If you arrive late, we may have to cut short your appointment so as not to encroach on our other clients’ time. If we book you in for an hour, you most definitely need an hour.
We love it when clients bring in their inspirational pictures. Sometimes we find it difficult to really capture the image a clients is describing to us, so we always find pictures useful.
Only want to visit the salon once a year? Never use a hairdryer?
Need a style that’s ultra easy to manage? Used home dye kits?
Please don’t be afraid to tell us all your hair horror stories. We love to know EVERYTHING about you, your lifestyle and you hair and in this way we can give you the low maintenance style you’re looking for, beautiful lived-in balayage or plan your new salon colour to perfection.
Our styling advice is based on different factors (face shape, lifestyle etc), but If we do suggest something you don’t think will work, or you don’t like the sound of, please let us know. We aren’t mind readers and want to give you the perfect hair you deserve. We won’t mind!
