Salon Chair Manners

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of sinking into your stylist’s chair, sitting back, and letting him or her do their thing. It’s luxurious and it feels indulgent, in a good way. That said, there are some chair behaviors that won’t help you look your best, and since a good outcome is the result of a good collaboration between you and your stylist, here are a few things to remember for your next appointment.

As tempting as it is to use your time in the chair to catch up on things you’ve let slip, your stylist really needs you to be present in every sense of the word. Put away your phone, and focus on the task at hand rather than the day’s big drama. Your stylist is a professional and deserves your respect and attention, and that includes turning up on time for your appointment. At the very least, a courtesy call is always welcome if your time slips out of your control.

Your head is attached to your body, and what you do with your body affects the posture of your head. Something as simple as crossing your legs will make your body unbalanced and uneven, and that will make styling your hair more difficult. Reading a magazine seems simple enough, but each time you turn the page, you’re likely to turn your head as well. It also changes the position of your neck and head as you look down rather than straight ahead. Instead, why not use the appointment time as an opportunity to focus on you and how you and your stylist can create a fabulous look.
