December 30 2022

When you are looking for a stylist you want to make sure that you have found the very best one to work with your child. Getting haircuts and styling from strange stylists can be a scary experience, especially since we have all experienced a bad salon trip. So we want to make sure that you and your little girl can avoid problematic stylists by offering these helpful tips to identify green flags and red flags in stylists.

Do They Know How To Work With Textured Hair?

This is one of the most important aspects of choosing a new stylist for your little girl. Unfortunately, there are many stylists who aren’t trained to work with afro-textured hair and thus won’t really know what to do with it when you come in. So looking online and getting in contact with the salon or stylist prior to booking your appointment will be important to make sure that you don’t end up on a wasted trip out. Fortunately, there are salons around that specialize in styling textured hair, so looking into what salons are available in your area that does so will make your hair stylist journey just that much easier.

Look at the Pictures!

If there are pictures online of the work that your potential stylist has done that is just one more green light on the stylist's talents. You will be able to see what they are good at doing, and the kind of hair they work with, and if you like what you see then you can be sure that they are quite capable of working with your child’s hair. You can typically find pictures on the salon website.

Look For Recommendations!

Looking online for reviews to see how many people recommend the salon and stylist you are looking into. Asking around and getting recommendations from trusted family and friends can also be a reliable way of getting the information you’re looking for. Anyone who has been particularly impressed by a stylist’s work will let you know exactly how good the work they do is.

Do They Take Kids?

There are some stylists who just simply do not like working with kids. Kids can sometimes be squirmy, and not want to sit still in the chair. This makes some stylists nervous about whether or not they can actually deliver good results, and as a result, prefer to just not work with kids in their chairs. So make sure that the stylist will take children by getting in contact with the salon.

Looking At The Website

You can get a lot of information from the salon’s website - that is their purpose of them, after all. A good website will often give you a team page to look at, so you can get a good feel for the staff available. They will also have pictures of the work at hand, and sometimes even little blurbs of information on each stylist to give you an idea of their work level and personalities.

Does The Stylist Ask About Hair History?

Let’s say you’ve gotten far enough in the process that you’re finally visiting the salon, and have your kid sat in the chair. How does the stylist begin? The very first thing that they do should revolve around asking questions about the child’s hair. Asking some questions, and getting a feel for what you’re looking for and the child’s hair history indicates that this stylist does truly care about the health and well-being of your child’s hair, and wants to deliver quality results.

Check The Prices!

You don’t want to accidentally be charged more than you expected, and you also want to make sure you have the proper means of paying. Just 4 Girls Salon, for example, is a cashless salon. Prices can vary as well depending on hair length, so you will want to ask about the price prior to your appointment.
