When you transition to natural hair, you may find that most of your hair care is done at home. Twisting your hair out every few days or applying a hair mask once a week will likely replace your weekly sessions at the beauty parlor. However, even with the most meticulous DIY routine, there will still come a time when you need a professional to cut your hair or treat some of the damage that may have accumulated over the years. When that time comes, you want to be sure your stylist specializes in African-American hair care.
Listed below are some tips for finding a reliable, experienced natural hair stylist.
3 Tips to Find a Stylist for African-American Hair Care
1. Ask Around
Word-of-mouth is still the most sincere form of advertising. If you are looking for a stylist that specializes in African-American hair care and hair repair, ask friends and family members with natural hair who they go to. Ask for details like the hair care products used by the stylist, the stylist’s attitude towards natural hair, and their overall satisfaction with the stylist’s work.
2. Check Out Their Social Media Pages
After you have narrowed your search down to one or two stylists, visit their social media pages. These days, most hair dressers have turned to social media to show off their work. Check out your potential stylists’ pages to see if they work with clients whose hair is similar in texture and length to yours. Additionally, look for before and after pictures of clients, and general styles that clients come in for to determine if their skill set matches the vision you have for your hair.
3. Read Reviews & Leave Your Own
Even with a good recommendation and popular social media page, you should still do as much research as possible on your potential stylist. Search for them online to read honest reviews from different clients. If the reviews from clients whose needs are similar to yours are overwhelmingly positive, call the stylist to make an appointment. Whether your appointment was a success or it left something to be desired, leave a review to help another potential client make their choice.
