Being Late
Be respectful of your stylist’s time and schedule. Most keep tightly booked schedules and your lateness can throw a monkey wrench into their flow. Or leave their chair empty. If there’s no avoiding lateness, call ahead and see what your options are. 

Bringing Your Entourage…
You don’t bring your entire squad to your job, so don’t bring it to theirs. It’s cool to bring your bestie for support and input, but bringing the whole squad is not only rude, it takes up much needed space from paying customers and can be distracting. 

…Or Using The Salon As Day Care
We get it. Finding child care for an eight-hour braiding stint can be difficult, but don’t expect your stylist to be a babysitter, too. They can’t braid and watch kids at the same time.
