As I am sure you can imagine, moving to a new city requires that you replace your former beauty providers, as well as a host of other services. Nail salon, skin care providers, makeup gurus, waxers, and most importantly, hair stylist, all have to be researched and vetted. My boyfriend at the time I moved here suggested his current salon so I made an appointment. The stylist and I have had many good times together over the past 4 years. However, I was ready for a change. How hard is it to switch stylist? It is hard. I felt bad to leave her, but the last several cuts were just not doing it for me and I thought a fresh set of eyes would be the way to go. I checked out a new venue, but the one guy I saw for a consultation wasn’t terribly welcoming. In fact, he claimed to be so busy that he told me, “it would be a miracle if anything opened up.” That wasn’t the attitude I was looking for so I continued checking on more appealing options. After making other inquiries I ended up right where I started, same salon but different stylist. I called the salon and explained what I was looking for and was lined up with a different stylist. Was it awkward the first time I came in and saw my former stylist? You bet, but good manners prevailed and I ended up walking out with a new look that made me smile. Now, after 2 more appointments, I no longer dread going in to the salon. My recent visits with the new stylist have definitely led to an improved outcome.
Have you ever had to change hair stylist? If so, what prompted the change? Are you happier now? Feel free to post away on our site. Inquiring minds want to know…
