Here are some things you want to keep in mind when narrowing down your stylist options. Every stylist doesn’t specialize in every hair style. Whether you wear a short crop, long flowing locks, a relaxer, or colored tresses, make sure that you find a stylist who specializes in that look. Ask them if they have taken any recent classes. If the stylist says that she “doesn’t need them”, run for the hills… or at least to another stylist.
