Anyone can cut hair. However, creating a trendy and stylish hairdo is a privilege only to skilled and experienced specialists. Having special knowledge and expertise is not enough to be a successful hairdresser. It takes a lot more than that. What exactly?
- Creativity and inspiration. These two crucial traits distinguish the true professional from someone who just cuts hair for a living. Having a client on the chair who has put his/her trust in a hairstylist means a lot more than simply satisfying his/her needs. A great professional should be able to imagine a specific hairdo before it is created according to the customer’s hair texture and face shape. Hairdressers with rich imagination should be able to suggest up-to-date solutions either for special events or for everyday life and correct clients’ ideas if they are not suitable.
- Exceptional listening skills. Being a great listener is an important quality for each successful hairstylist. No matter how creative they are, they must listen carefully to your preferences and requirements first and do everything needed to make you happy. Their main goal should be to make you look more beautiful after you leave their salon than before you entered it.
- Artistry. All exceptional hairstylists must have vast knowledge in hair color dyes, cutting, styling, perming, chemical straightening and much more. They must offer what clients are willing to pay for without any quality compromises. They should know how to mix dark and light colors to produce the desirable effect. Good hairdressers know how to create seamless and trendy visions using their excellent artistic flair.
