7 Reasons to Do Your Hair with A Professional

If you think you might be able to care for your hair without the expertise of an experienced professional, we’ve got 7 reasons that will make you reconsider:

1. They know what they’re doing

Time is the best teacher! And when you go to a high-quality, professional salon, you’re guaranteed a team of experienced hairdressers who’ve become experts in their field from honing their skills over time. Whether multi-skilled, or professionals in a particular salon department, you can rest assured you’re in capable hands.

 2. At your service

If you’re doing your own hair at home, the styles you can achieve are not only time-consuming for the inexperienced, but also very limited. The variety of services available at a professional salon can help you achieve any style you want.

 3. Tools of the trade

Your home tools are no match for the high quality machinery at top salons. While you can achieve a quick blow dry at home, or labour over a head of curls, a trip to the salon will give you access to a wide range of quality equipment, and professionally done styles & treatments.

4. Keeping up appearances

A good salon will keep current on technological advances, in-demand products and international trends, as well as keep their staff trained with the latest developments and skills. If a particular treatment or hairstyle becomes popular abroad, your professional salon will have up-to-date services for their clients.

 5. Healthy is happy

Regular visits to your hairdresser will help address any existing hair problems, like dryness, breakage or itchy scalp. Plus, seeing your stylist at least monthly can help you stay proactive in combating future damage. A professional will also give you hair homecare tips with a simple at-home programme for upkeep between visits.

 6. Learn from the best

Put your phone aside the next time you visit your salon, and watch your hairdresser work – you’ll be surprised how many tips and tricks you can learn! Watch and learn, and you’ll find out what you’ve been doing wrong and, most importantly, how to get it right. And if you’re curious, ask questions – the more you know about caring for your own hair, the healthier it will be with each visit to the salon!

7. Boost of confidence

We all know that “just walked out the salon” look where you feel as good as you look, and it shows! There’s nothing like a trip to see your hairdresser to have you feeling ready to take on whatever the day has in store for you. Going to the salon is a treat (and one you probably deserve too!). There are few things like it, and we’re not willing to give it up for anything!
