We’ve all been there before. You head to a fabulous new salon to perk yourself up a bit, but wind up leaving feeling worse than you did when you walked into the place. While there may not be too much you can do to fix the current situation except grow your hair out or wait a few weeks to recolor, these tips will help you avoid any future hair scares and get the style you want the next time around.

    my stylist when i was younger would get hella aggressive on my hair and pull and tug and comb,hard whenever i nicely informed him that something wasn’t the way i wanted it. he was heavy handed as hell

    That’s exactly why I don’t go to salons. I’ve had conversations with the stylist a day before explained what I want and did the opposite. I’m spending a lot of money on a flat iron. 8 months natural and loving it.

    Yeah we really have to speak up and not worry about what the stylists may think. We are paying them, and we have to live with the style, so it may as well be the style we want.

    GREAT ARTICLE!! I was once screwed over at a salon, and I’ve never felt comfortable going back. If I ever get the courage to go back, I’ll keep these tips in mind!!

    In regards to “Pay Attention to What is Going On” – This is important, because I once had a hair braider in a salon braid my hair so tight (I told her specifically not to do that) that it created an instant bald spot. If I hadn’t looked in the mirror to see the work she had done so far, she could have permanently damaged my hair. Needless to say, she did not get to finish the braids or get paid for the wash and blow dry that she suggested I get.
