Picking a hairdresser is a very personal task and many people find it daunting if they have to find a new one after they lose contact with a trusted stylist for whatever reason – moving home, retirement, etc. According to Allure’s contributor Tanya Edwards, when searching for a hairdresser, it’s best to bring photos, trust your gut and find an expert in your style and/or colour of hair.
And, if you ever feel like you’re being too picky, just think of this quote by the celebrity hair stylist, @vidalsassoon. “Hairdressers are a wonderful breed. You work one-on-one with another human being, and the object is to make them feel so much better, and to look at themselves with a twinkle in their eye.” You deserve to look and feel better!
