Getting the Most Out of Your Appointment

I know with all the busy schedules of picking up the kids at school, taking them to practice, picking them up at practice, homework, laundry, AHHH! It can be just too overwhelming. But, the good news is that you can come to Tranquility and get just what you need – a little “Me” time! Yes you deserve it – Moms and Dads alike. Below are a few suggestions to get the most out of your appointment and feel all that there is to experience during this hour to two hours to yourself!

Time. Trust me! I get it. Being on time is not always the easiest, especially when you plan out your day perfectly and things go wrong. But this is very important for you. The consultation is the most important part of your appointment and if you are running late – this is the first thing that can be cut. Your consultation is the time that you can sit and discuss with your stylist what you love, hate, and want to change about your looks. This needs to be happening in front of a mirror and not while you are running to the shampoo bowl and in between you trying to relax. So be sure to set aside a few extra minutes in your schedule to ensure that you are on-time.

Vision. Always be sure to know what you want. I would suggest that you start thinking about what you want out of your hair the day before. If you are looking for a big change, try and go through some magazines and have a visual for your stylist. Remember there are 100s of different shades of brown. Your “brown” may be completely different than your stylist’s “brown.”

Reflect. Remember, it is okay to communicate with your stylist about your likes and dislikes of your last appointment. Were your bands cut too short? Did you think that your cut didn’t help your face frame? WE understand that you have your own personal preference so if there is something that needs to be changed remember, you are paying for this service and we are here to make you satisfied. Talk about those details with your stylist so he/she can grasp where to go next.

Reality. This is always important. Know you and know your hair. You are the one that knows the ins and outs of your hair. You know what makes it tick. Trust me, I am forever grateful of my childhood hairstylist that knew I had too thick of hair to have a perm like all the other girls at my school. I would have looked like Bozo the Clown! So if you or your stylist are looking to do something that you know you will not have enough time to do in the morning and will add more stress to your daily routines – DON’T DO IT!!!

Which brings me to my last point…

Trust. Trust that your stylist is completely qualified and knows that they are talking about. If you have jet black hair and want to be platinum blonde, trust when your stylist says that it can’t be done overnight due to the damage it would cause. Understand that you are in good hands and we want nothing more to make you feel even more beautiful than you already are!

Until next time…
