What makes a good hairdresser?
Anyone can cut hair but not anyone can be a good hairdresser!
Here's some talents and skills of a good hairdresser that you may not have considered before:
Sculptor - Sculptors have to have the "vision" to see what they want to produce from a mass of unformed material.
Painter - The mix of colours, using light and shadow, warm and cold colors next to each other and create smooth transitions between shades.
Designer - As a creative person, they see things others don't. They are able to visualize all kinds of shapes and colours and put them together. It's a big challenge to help someone to find the perfect look and to give advice.
Great Listener - It doesn't matter about all of the above if your customer's are not happy! When a customer IS happy they leave the salon more beautiful than ever. As well as listening to what a customer says, they also need to understand what's not said to ensure you have a positive experience.
Psychologist - Building rapport, understanding the motivations of customers and that the "transformation" of a hairstyle often means a transformation of themselves. Some people love to visit a salon for the personal attention.
Of course there's a lot more involved in being a great hairdresser than all of the above, but we think you would agree that there's more to it than meets the eye!
Peony Hair Design and Molbys Hair Salon are both recommended by locals so why not give them a call and make an appointment!
