10 Things Your Hairstylist Really Wants You to Know

After being a stylist for over 25 years, I thought it was about time salon clients know some things that really irk us. First and foremost, it’s important to know we love you to bits, but these things you do! Please stop. Being a hairstylist truly is an amazing career, but unlike every other job on the planet, some things just aren’t so amazing.

Here are 10 things your hairstylist really wants you to know but doesn’t have the heart to tell you.

1 Stay Home if You’re Sick

Please, we beg of you, don’t bring your cooties into the salon. When you show up sick and contagious (we’re talking runny nose viral infection kinda sick), then you are spreading your germs throughout the entire salon and run the risk of making us all sick too. We can’t afford to stay home sick.

2 Leave Your Kids at Home

If your kids are high energy and prone to break things or misbehave, please leave them at home. We don’t run a babysitting service here, and oftentimes kids run around, disturb other clients and break things. Our things are really expensive, and many clients come to the salon to relax and not be disturbed by out-of-control kids. 

3 Call If You’re Going to Be Late

If you know you’re going to be more than 20 minutes late, please call. We lose money sitting around waiting for clients who don’t show up or forget to call. It’s really just respectful.

4 Don’t Be a No Show

If you can’t make your appointment, please call and cancel. There is nothing worse than sitting and waiting for a client who was booked in for a 2-hour service, only to have them not show up. We lose a lot of money when you do this. Please don’t. Just call. 

5 Don’t Ask Me if I Know What I’m Doing

There is nothing more insulting to a hairstylist than being asked, “Do you know what you’re doing.” We are trained professionals, many of us with years of experience. Yes, we know what we’re doing. Do you ask your dentist or doctor that? Don’t be rude.

6 Don’t Gossip About My Coworkers to Me

These girls are my friends. Why would I want to talk s*it about them? If you have an issue or a problem with one of them, please take it up with them or my boss, not me. 

7 Stay Off Your Phone

While I’m cutting, coloring, washing, blowdrying, or doing anything with your hair, please stay off your phone unless it’s an emergency. It’s super hard and frustrating to try and work on your head if there’s a cell phone attached to the side of it. 

8 Don’t Make a Scene if You Hate Your Hair

Yelling and freaking out in front of a salon full of people is embarrassing, immature, and disrespectful. Please don’t do that. Nothing gets resolved that way, and chances are, we won’t want you back in the salon if you do that. 

9 Don’t Ask For a Discount

This isn’t Walmart, babe. This is a salon full of professional stylists who had to go to school to learn this trade and spend years perfecting it. We don’t offer discounts. Neither does your plumber, mechanic, dentist, or eye doctor.

10 Don’t Treat Me Like Your Slave

Please don’t treat me like I’m your slave and talk to me like I’m stupid. First and foremost, I’m a human being with feelings. I’m not below you or above you. We are equal, no matter how much money you make.
