The only thing worse than paying $500 for a hairstyle is paying $500 AND being confined to a salon chair for ten hours. A trip to the salon can drag on forever, especially if you've requested an elaborate style or your hairdresser is a rookie. For this reason, I personally opt to have the stylist come to my house. That way instead of wasting the day, I can get a tonne of work done at the same time. Although being stuck in a chair for over six hours forces me to be productive, I try to shave off as much time as possible so I can continue on with my day. I'm sure you feel the same way too, so here are some tricks to making your hair appointment go as quickly as possible.
WHEN SEEKING A STYLIST
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
WHEN YOU GET THERE (or when your stylist arrives)
The best part about these strategies is that most salons and stylists charge per style or treatment, rather than by the hour. This means that by shortening your appointment, you'll be saving money without hurting their bottom line. In fact, the sooner your hairdresser finishes with you the sooner s/he can start servicing the next client!
