Charlotte Salons

Finding a hair salon in Charlotte with hair stylist that understands your needs can be a daunting task. People often put it in the same category as finding a new doctor. Here at Poza Salon we have given our two cents on the best way to find your future hair stylist.

Word of mouth is very powerful. Ask around for recommendations from friends and even total strangers with hair you admire. If you are surfing the web in search of a good salon pay close attention to the details. Does the Charlotte salon have a good reputation? Do the stylist have in-salon training and advanced education? Also, reading reviews posted online by others can help a lot.

Set up a consultation with stylist you think best suites your needs. This visit should not cost anything, by the way. Here are some observations to make during the consultation:

1)Do we seem to click? First impressions are powerful and generally correct.

2)How does the hair stylist present herself/himself? What you see is what you get.

3)What does her/his hair style look like?  Believe me, this is a big clue. If you see terribly damaged hair run for the hills. If she/he doesn’t care enough, or know enough to keep their own hair healthy, why should they care about yours?

4)Do they ask enough questions to be able to asses your best possibilities?  On this visit, a good hair stylist should get your hair styling history, past chemical treatments and likes and dislikes. They should get to know about your lifestyle and how much time you are willing to spend on styling your hair.

5)Take a look around. Is the hair salon clean? Do they appear organized?

6)Was your appointment handled professionally? Remember, you do have choices here.

We recommend having your hair styled for an event before going full force with a whole new cut and color if your uneasy. This is a good way to test the water and see if you and the stylist are a good match. If you are happy with the experience and the results, you’ve found your new hair salon. But remember to book ahead because chances are a good hair stylist stays busy!
