Tell Us about Your Stylist
I've been seeing the same stylist for most of the past (almost) decade. I love her! We've been through a lot together and can always trust that she'll give me a fabulous look. I've even followed her to three different salons over the years :p

So, what about your stylist? Do you see one exclusively? Or see whoever is available? Maybe you're more loyal to a salon than a particular stylist? Tell us all about it!

I have seen the same stylist since forever .. he always does such a good job but resently he had to close up due to ill health and sell his salon .. so atm im stylist free .. which is bad because i need my hair cuttiyn asap .. the only problem with going to one person my entire life is i have found it hard to trust anyone else with my hair .. guess ill need to very quicekrly overcome that fear.

I think its important to stick to a stylist that is familliar with you, understands what you want, and most importantly makes the cut. Its rapport and communication, Ive only have 3 stylist in the last 10 years, one I had to drop because I moved to Australia to study, the second because of ill health and he wanted to take a break going back to Sweden, and my current one now!

I guess its hard to trust someone or just anyone with hair, all my stylists are via recommendations and even then we always have a rather long chat, and still ive been fearful the first couple of times. I really salute the peepz that volunteer for hair shows, its like sure its a free cut..colour..products but I rather not go through the agony.

Mine is fabulous - she's a makeup artist as well as a hairdresser and I can go to her with this completely wacky hair idea in my head and she'll make it work for me everytime.

Yeah, its really important for a stylist to be able to give you what you want, with a balance of creativity and expertise. If you have to be convinced of a new do, it usually doesnt turn out well, someone thats in-tune with your personality, looks like ill be changing my stylist soon, hes inability to keep things fresh, unable to give me deep rich lowlights, and out of tune with who I am when it comes to hair is gonna cost him!!!

This is exactly why I love my stylist! I've wanted some pretty...umm...unique styles over the years and she's always come through. She knows what works with my face and hair type and has always been honest with me. My latest 'do was inspired by a film. When I brought the pictures in she explained just how "extreme" the style was. She suggested we change it a little to get the effect without being too drastic. And it worked beautifully! She really is an artist.

Mine has been for the past few months.................well......................m e.

But I am growing my hair back out, and moving. So I will have to find a new stylist.

Luckily.............having been a hairstylist for over ten years. I know what to look for in a good one.

i adored my stylist. love, love, loved him. then, one day, i got a letter at my house, saying he was gone, and no one would tell me where he went. 2 years later, i still haven't gotten a haircut. i've been trimming it on my own, because i'm just way too afraid to find someone else.

^ ohh. you should encourage yourself and find a new stylist

it was fun to read how you're all so loyal to your stylist.
i always had my stylist. but it wasn't always the same. i kept getting a new one because i got bored.
for three years i went to the same hair salon. i went like three or four times a year. the same guy always styled my hair, untill one day i got a call from him telling me he had opened his own salon. i wanted to grow my hair, so since i never wanted a hair cut i never went to see him.
one day i decided that my hair was too heavy and needed some shape.so i went to the same old salon, but with a different guy. he did a terrible job! there were parts that were too short, others too long .. and no talking about the time (two months ago) when i wanted to re-cut my bangs. i had to wear it pulled back for three weeks
now my hair's grown, i needed shape again, because the last guy did nothing for my hair. and i went to this salon that i hated (now love) because they gave me a terrible hair cut years ago. if i could have done it myself, i'd have cut my hair the way it is now. this new guy's a keeper

sorry about the massive lenght

A good tip for finding a great stylist.

Look at their hair. Ask them who did it. You might want to try out the person who cut their hair.
