Most of my clients come from referrals. Yes, there are a few walk-ins but considering the location of my hair salon I get only a few from the Star bookstore nearby. And yet, we are always busy. My hair stylists are booked for weeks in advance. Sometimes I think that we are that the easiest bunch of hairstylists not only in San Diego but also in Southern California.
Many people who were referred by the family or friends came to hair salon Tamales because they were looking for solutions to their existing care problems. Some of them include of working with inexperienced hairstylist, some, as I have learned in many cases, end up doing dreadful things to their hair themselves. The wrong choice of hair products, the wrong hairstyle that doesn’t compliment you, a wrong hair color, all of these quickly diminish the quality of your appearance and when your appearance suffers consequences may follow. Your looks are important in your career and personal live and that makes your hair stylist an important person in your life. So, how do you find one?
How do you find the hairstylist in San Diego you can trust? Yes, I could give you just a shameless self promotional plug and tell you to come and see us. I’m not going to do that, chances are one of your friends will suggest it sooner or later. Besides, if you live in East County or in Oceanside and if you are a busy person you may consider finding someone closer. Having said that, I have clients driving from Los Angeles to see me, I’m not kidding.
Here is how you will find your perfect hairstylist in San Diego:
You can begin your search by asking your friends, especially the ones whose hair you like. Ask them about their hair stylist and for how long they have been seeing him or her. See, most hairstylists specialize in styling particular types of hair and haircuts. Some could be very good that styling Mohawks and some are masters of bridal hair. That’s why it is important to find the hairstylist who specializing in your particular type of hair. Most hairstylists are versatile but, still there is a niche of what they do best.
Schedule a consultation and your perspective hairstylist(s) about the type of training they had and whether they are keeping up with new trends, new hair styling techniques and new hair products. Ask them if they are willing to experiment a little as well as listening to you. You want a hairstylist who without being argumentative will help you to pick the perfect hairstyle complimenting your complexion. Also find out how much they charge, but believe you me, in most cases you do not want to look for the least expensive. Quality of work usually reflects the price and by being both considerate to your budget and the looks you would like to have, you will find a perfect balance, I am sure.
Get four or five difference hairstylists you would like to see if and make appointments. When you do that consider their proximity, if you live in La Jolla, you may want to see if your hairstylist in Carlsbad but Temecula would be a little inconvenient. I know it sounds like a drag to see five different hairstylists, but it’s worth it. You are building a long term relationship with your hairstylist. You can schedule a consultation with your prospects and when you arrive at the hair salon taken take mental notes of how clean they are, how professionally they behave and what types of products they carry. Talk for a few minutes to each and every hairstylist you see. Ask them what they think about your hair condition and what hair products they are willing to recommend and why.
Ask them what do they think about your current hairstyle then what would they suggest improving your looks? Listen to their answers and look at their work. Do you think this person cares enough about your hair and your satisfaction? If your internal instincts say “yes”, it’s a plus.
After all said and done make your pick and stick with the one you like the most. Do not change your hair stylists often, besides if you will find a perfect hair master you probably would not want to experiment with someone else.
Let me share with you what I think about my team which I consider to be the best San Diego hairstylist team. Hairstylists at Tamales hair salon are true masters of hair. I am proud of each and everyone. We gain our clients trust by making them look their best each and every time they see us. After all, they trust us with their most perceptible asset, their hair. This trust creates a bond between a client and the hairstylist, a bond so strong that many things confessed by the client would not be shared with anyone else. That’s why I recommend to everyone spending a little time with prospective hair stylists before you decide who is going to be your final pick.
Good luck and may your hair being taken care of by the true master of hair. It makes your life easier and more fun,
