How to speak ‘Stylist’..

How to speak ‘Stylist’..

What we say… What we mean…
“Are you sure you want to keep the length in the back?” Please let me cut off your mullet
“I’m concerned about the integrity of your hair” “It’s gonna snap off in the sink” :I
“Do you colour your hair at home?” “What the hell did you put on here??”
“I’m just going to mix a special treatment for you..” “Ooops”
“Let’s try something different today” “Your hair is boring me to tears” receptionist “What does my day look like?” “Will I get to eat, pee, sit down today??”



Not suggesting we speak a different language… of course!


Thanks for reading … any comments? :)

About me

Hi I’m Helen

Since being mesmerised at just 10 years old, whilst at a friends house - watching his mum having her hair cut I realised; ‘that is what I want to do’. So, no surprise then, that after leaving school, despite comments to dissuade, I trained and became a hairdresser myself.

Since then, in the wonderful world we live - my life has turned corners and crossed streets, but the job I love still found me dealing on a day to day basis with ….. hairdressers :)

Call us what you like - we’ve heard it all! But you’ll not find a good stylist or beauty therapist who doesn’t have a wealth of information and understanding of ‘what people want’? …. (And they’ll enquire about your night out/holiday/weekend too - happy days!)

Of those experiences, loves and understanding of the hair and beauty business - meeting all kinds of people along the way, I have found myself starting a blog that is ‘all things salon’ ….

So, in a sea of salons ….. which do you choose? What do you look for? How do you decide - there are so many!?!!

Your 'me time' is important - seek that 'little bit extra' from your salon experience….
