So YOU want THAT Haircut

Jason Outten - Sunday, April 14, 2019
So YOU want THAT haircut.... You know. The one that sits right and was made for you. Here’s some info to help you achieve and maintain


Pick YOUR salon wisely. Check them out prior. Their web page, their social media. You’ll get a feel for what they are about and the type of work they do.... If every pic is a long blonde balayage and you’re rocking a pixie cut ...hmmm. .....and remember price is a consequence.
Most salons work on a similar rate of return. Whether that be $25 for 4 haircuts in an hour or $100 for 1 haircut in an hour. How much attention to your haircut do you want ? Or need ?


We only do “correct” haircuts. Consult, shampoo, cut, style, cross check haircut. You cannot cut hair correctly if you cannot see it in all its form and cross check it styled in the way it was cut for...... There are an average of 100,000 hairs on the human head and yes 2mm or 2cm is a haircut. Either way all 100,000 are cut.


CONSULT, CONSULT, CONSULT. 99% of hair problems are nothing technically wrong with whats been done to the hair. Its more what you wanted and what your hairdresser THOUGHT you wanted


Be specific, show pictures. We use pictures a lot. Its the clearest way to ensure everyone is on the same page, or in today's world screen.
We have an iPad and a Pinterest account full of looks. ... But remember pictures are ideas, looks, inspiration. This needs to be converted into YOUR look for YOUR hair.


YOUR best haircut will always be one that suites YOUR lifestyle and image. Be realistic about your hair type and look. Do you really want that flattened out asymmetrical cut that takes 30mins to style each morning when you said you have 5min max ??


Develop a trust with your salon, let them get to know YOUR hair. It’ll only make it look and feel better. The amount of times we hear a stylist say things like “oh look who is in today, remember her nape area needs extra attention to allow it to sit right” History like that makes a huge difference to YOUR results.


PLAN PLAN PLAN REBOOK REBOOK REBOOK.... do YOU get to that point where your hair is just not playing ball today.
You call your salon and they are full so its another week. But you have a haircut that needs cutting every 5 weeks and you call your salon at 8 weeks (that's why its not playing ball) and you cannot get in until the 9th week......
But that's only because all their other clients pre booked when their hair was due so their hair always plays ball.
We have clients that pre book the year or at least book their next at their last.
We have clients that call exactly 6 weeks every single time yet say “i won’t book ahead, i’ll see how i go” every single visit. Their 6 weekly is therefore hit and miss.


This is just a small part in the big picture of how some people always get their hair just right.
