If you are reading this right now, you have probably been around long enough to know that not all Queenstown Hairdressers are the same. Some hairdressers and stylists totally suck at their job while others are a precious gem that everyone would want to keep for themselves, for as long as it is practically possible. Alas, the bad stylists have totally made a bad name for the industry and have spoiled the business for the good ones. But then again, the diversity of this industry is what makes it so fantastic. By and large, you will all agree that great hairdressers all possess more or less the following amazing characteristics and traits.
Great Listening Skills
There is nothing that compares to a know-it-all stylist who cannot spare a second of their time listening to what their client needs and wants. A successful Queenstown hairdresser who is worth their weight in gold should spend a significant amount of time listening, especially during the initial consultation. A good hair stylist should never allow any issues compromise and overshadow their obligation in seeking clarity where they do not understand what a client wants. As such, when looking out for a good service provider, watch out for any communication cues that tell you they are very fast in acting without giving any credence to what you as the customer wants.
We all know success in today’s hair and beauty industry is characterized by having a hairdresser who stays on top of the latest industry trends. A good and impeccable service provider should possess the skills to tactfully integrate the trends into your personal style, tastes, and preferences. But being on top of the game shouldn’t be construed to mean one is a slave to fashion. A good service provider should be competent enough to amalgamate the latest trends with their creative and unique styles to create something distinctive for their clients. This explains the reason why hairdressers are also referred to as hair stylists. Styling is an art which requires as much creativity as any other art.
What happens when you walk into a hair salon wanting a specific haircut or hair color that doesn’t suit your personality or the shape of your face? A good hairdresser will talk you out of that style giving you tangible reasons and providing better alternatives that may help achieve a similar outcome. A bad hairdresser, on the other hand, will go ahead and waste your time and take your money only to embarrass you when you meet your friends, and they all look to give you that dreaded look.
Manual Agility and Technical Skill
It is one thing to meet a creative and honest Queenstown hairdresser with impeccable listening skills in the world. It is a different thing entirely to discover the hairdresser has no technical skill in executing whatever you want. They say practice makes perfect and this has never been any truer than in the hair and beauty industry. Be sure to work with a service provider that is continuously committed to mastering the ins and outs of the various techniques that are sure to make a customer happy.
