You may wonder, how can I find a good hairdressing salon in Cheltenham? and it is a good question, many of our clients come to us because of recommendations from family friends and colleagues, so one way is to ask around for recommendations.
Once you have found your Cheltenham hairdresser, the most important thing to get you the hairstyle you want, is good communication, if you’re not sure whether your hairdresser understands your requirements get them to go through the style with you, pictures from magazines can also help a great deal.
Stylists, clients and the public in general also have very different understandings of colour names and descriptions, for example your understanding of Auburn may be a dark brown with a reddish tinge, whereas, your friend might think of it as a bright red with a little brown, and moreover your hair stylist will probably understand it as a series of numbers.
At Chameleons you may overhear the stylists discussing colours as 6.35 with a ¼ of 4 with 30 vol, I know it sounds like code to the rest of us but to the hair stylists, it’s a way to describe colour that they can understand perfectly, so once again a photograph to show to your stylist the colour you like helps immensely.
Again, your hairdressing Stylist will have many many clients, and until you become well known to your hairdresser he/she won’t always be able to remember exactly how your hair was styled the last time you came in, so it is a good idea for you to take photos of yourself with that perfect style, or your Chameleons Stylist may be able to take a picture for the record and store it on our computer for your next visit, just ask if you would like this.
At our salon in Cheltenham we also keep record cards so that we can replicate that particular colour or combination of highlights etc that you loved, so that the next time you come in we will be able to give you continuity of hair colour.
Above all if you are unhappy with anything about your hairstyle, please speak to your stylist, at Chameleons Cheltenham, our stylists would much rather spend a little more time getting it just right for you rather than you leave the salon other than absolutely happy with your new look.
