If your bringing your own products to the salon you need to check a few things.
Do you trust your stylist? Are you at a ghetto salon? Are you a good friend & giving her or him a hard time? Do you go in with all if your social media knowledge & force it down her throat? Does she attempt to make suggestions to you at all?
I'm going somewhere with this so hold on a minute. Are you so sure about your own hair you could do it yourself ?
Great news .....you should If you know so much & all you need is a pair of hands, do the stylist a favor & get a friends hands to use. Leave the salon alone though. Nothing for nothing I get it that you can do your own hair but if you go to a salon, trust that stylist. Please its so insulting for someone to tell you how to do your job. It means they think your not competent and if that's not what you think then show your trust. If your going somewhere that welcomes your advice & actually does whatever you say, then maybe they are not as experienced or have a license.
Anyway it all balls down to professionalism. If you want to be taken care of, but wont relinquish control try it. Pay the extra bucks , relinquish control and relax. I realize also that sometimes you don't want to pay for that service but hay a woman has to do what a woman has to do. If you really need a quick fix & you don't have a budget at all visit your local beauty school. Their prices are cheaper because they are practicing. Usually under the care of a licensed instructor so you will be fine.
If you really want to know a lot of people do it. It doesn't replace a regular salon home but in a quick pinch it may help.
So who does your hair?
Mjis..... Love your look!
