However, our experienced stylists can customize any haircut according to your face so it harmonizes with your features.
Customer satisfaction is our number one priority and our stylists try their best to execute what you have in mind. In order to help the stylists get the outcome you want, it is important to have an idea of the kind of style you want and learning the right way to communicate it to the stylists. These guidelines can help you communicate with the haircut professionals at Vision and Dreams hair salon much better:
- Decide the type of haircut you want and be flexible to suggestions. A reference image can always be of great help to both – you and the stylist, as will make it easier for the stylist to understand exactly what you want and for you to communicate it.
Look for inspiration photos on websites, like Pinterest, because being specific will ensure you leave the salon satisfied.
- It is extremely necessary to consider the natural texture and type of your hair. There are some styles that only people blessed with curly hair can pull off, whereas, some styles that only suit people with straight hair. The stylists at Vision and Dream hair salon know what works for everyone and you can refer to them to convey the specifics of your hair to find what would look good on you.
- The stylists at Vision and Dreams hair salon are trained to thoroughly understand the customers’ preferences and execute them flawlessly. However, knowing the hairdressing lingo can prove to be pretty useful and will make communicating your preferences easier.
Here are some key terms that can help you convey your style to the hairdresser effectively:
- Taper: this haircut has a gradation in length, where it gets shorter as it goes down to the neck. Tapering technique is also used for face-framing layers as hair around the face of various lengths is blended together, the shortest piece generally starting at the jaw and gradually increasing in length as it progresses to the back of the head.
- Fringe: it is the shape cutting of the front part of your hair so it lies on top of the forehead, also commonly known as bangs.
- Layers: layers can be blended, piecey or blunt. This technique involves various lengths of hair in places that would flatter the natural flow of your hair the most. Layering can effectively help hide balding spots and areas on your head that are thinning by giving the hair volume.
- Blunt Cut: As the name implies, this cut involves the stylist cutting your hair straight across without any variation in length. Blunt bands, blunt layers, and one-length cuts are examples where this technique is used.
- Piecey Cut: This hair technique is used to achieve movement in the hair. In this technique, the stylist will use the tip of their scissors pointing towards the hair strand to snip bits of hair off instead of cutting it straight across, perpendicularly. It gives the effect of separation between different strands of hair and creates an interesting modern texture. This choppy hairstyle can also make straight and fine hair appear to be voluminous. A choppy cut with a razor can help tame the curls in your hair and flatten them.
If you’re going for a shorter haircut, your neckline can be of three different types, which are: blocked/squared-off, rounded or tapered.
- A blocked or a squared-off neckline is a hard line shaved following the natural hairline as closely as possible. It can add thickness to a slim neck whereas making a wide neck look even wider.
- A rounded neckline is similar to the blocked neckline but it takes the sharp square corners off. This can provide some balance for wider necks.
- A tapered neckline can make the neck look slimmer and would look good even as it grows out.
While knowing these terms can be useful, the hairdressers at Vision and Dream hair salon are friendly and always ready to explain the language to you if you don’t understand the specifics.
