HOW TO RECREATE YOUR SALON HAIR AT HOME
Here are some steps you can take to make sure you are capable of recreating your salon hairstyle. Let’s talk about them so you can finally master styling your hair the way you have been dreaming of.
One of the easiest steps in recreating your salon hairstyle at home is to take some pictures of your hair the day you have it done. Take a picture of your hair from the front, the side and the back. It can be very helpful to go back and look at photos when you are attempting to recreate the style. Without pictures, you have no point of reference.
As your hairstylist is styling your hair, take some notes. When you notice something she is doing that you did not realize was part of the styling process, put it in your phone notes. It is easy to key them in and save. You can read them later when you need the reminder of how to style your hair.
Products do make a difference, ladies. You don’t have to buy every hair product that your hairstylist uses on your hair but you should buy the ones that really make a difference. Ask her which products she recommends for you. You won't believe how easy it is to recreate your look at home with the proper products!
You cannot expect a low end hair tool to perform as well as a high end hair tool. There are exceptions but for the most part, it is true. Figure out the flat iron your hair stylist was using and giving you the sleek, soft look when you left the salon. It would be a good idea to buy the same hair tool and have much better luck with recreating the salon style.
It’s okay to ask questions. Your hairstylist will not mind. She loves doing hair and making women feel good about themselves. Asking questions can make a big difference. It means the difference between guessing and feeling confident in a new styling technique. Asking questions can clear up any confusion you may have.
Tutorials can be helpful in learning to style your hair. there are tutorials for almost anything you can imagine on YouTube, including hairstyles. If you know that your hairstylist used some root teasing to give you the look you love, do a search for that technique. You can do this for many different hairstyle techniques. An advantage to this is that you can do this at your own pace and watch it as many times as you need to.
If you are really struggling to recreate your salon hairstyle at home and it’s important to you, go back for a teaching session. Ask if there is a time you can come in and receive some individualized instruction. Of course you will need to compensate her for her time and be sure to tell her that you will do so up front. This one-on-one time can make all the difference. You will leave the salon feeling confident in your styling techniques.
