If you are in need of a new hair stylist there are a few things to consider. Ask your friends and coworkers for a recommendation. Call around ask about prices and appointments. Some salons only take appointments , some will do walk ins. Prices vary a lot these days , if you don't want sticker shock the first time in ask before making the appointment .We have a standard price list but it vary s as to the length of hair and styling involved .Some salons that have stylist that are all both renters can charge different prices for each stylist.
Next make sure they take the time to talk to you about what you are looking for in your new style. Don't let them start cutting till you feel they understand you. If you don't get that feeling get up and walk out! it is better then wearing a hairdo for weeks or even months you hate.
In my 30 years of owning a salon and working as a stylist i have had people come in and tell me they got my number from some one at church, grocery store, dr. office and even restaurant. So if you see someone with hair you love ask were they got it done, get the phone number.
