How do you hire a hairstylist?

Answered

After you find a few hairstylists you’re interested in, you need to decide who to hire. To figure this out, ask yourself these questions when evaluating each candidate:

  • Does the hairstylist have mostly positive customer reviews and high ratings?
  • Is the hairstylist charging prices that are reasonable and within my budget?
  • Does this person specialize in my hair type and texture?
  • Can the hairstylist achieve the look I want?
  • Does the hairstylist have the proper training?
  • Can the hairstylist come to me (i.e., are they a mobile hairstylist?), or do I need to go to their place of business?
