Services Hairstylists Do Against Their Will – Saloni Hairstylists Corner – Part 2

Posted by Saloni Editorial on

Hairstylists Explain Services Their Clients Never Requested:

“I’m really picky about what I will and won’t do, because the longer you’re in the business, the more you respect the fact that hair is a fiber and you know how fragile it can become.”

-Jo Blackwell-Preston, the owner of New York-based Dop Dop Salon

 

Extensions on Short Hair:

“I like anything that has a soft keratin tip, such as Hair Dreams and 909 Keratip from Hair Shop. But if the hair is less than four inches long, I won’t do extensions. It looks ugly.”

-Jo Blackwell-Preston, the owner of New York-based Dop Dop Salon

 Overdone Highlights:

“I’ll touch up only the regrowth [the roots] to avoid over-processing the hair, this [a high volume of peroxide] is what causes the hair to break.”

-Luigi Parasmo of Washington D.C.-based Luigi Parasmo Salon and Spa

Black in One Visit:

“I won’t take a client more than four levels darker in one visit, Part of being a hairdresser is caring about the hair, but part of it is caring about your client. There’s a mental aspect to it. When someone’s really blonde, taking them really dark is a shock to the system.”

-Jo Blackwell-Preston, the owner of New York-based Dop Dop Salon

Henna

“Another service I would turn down is a post-henna hair color, Henna is a stain that is typically only available in the colors of black and red. Otherwise, the hair will turn green. You will not achieve your ideal color if Henna is still on the hair.”

-Luigi Parasmo of Washington D.C.-based Luigi Parasmo Salon and Spa

 

Platinum on Deep Red Hair:

“I won’t take a deep redhead platinum, I’ll take them strawberry blonde with highlights.”

-Jo Blackwell-Preston, the owner of New York-based Dop Dop Salon
