How to Find the Perfect Hair Stylist

Finding the perfect hairstylist is a lot like dating. You put yourself out there, test the waters to see if there’s a connection, and sometimes, you might even get burned. But don't give up hope! We’re here to help take the guesswork out of finding a new hairstylist that will not only take care of your hair but also leave you feeling fabulous! Here are our top tips to help you find the perfect hairstylist for your unique needs:

Start with Research: Find Your Style Match

Start your quest for the perfect stylist by doing some homework. Look up local salons and independent stylists on social media platforms and websites. This will give you an insight into their work and aesthetics. Search for specific hashtags like #bayareahair or #bayareastylist to find trending styles and popular professionals in your area. Read reviews and check out before-and-after photos to gauge their expertise, especially if you have specific needs such as curly hair or the use of high-quality extensions. 

Choosing a Stylist Specialized in Hair Extensions

Hair extensions can elevate your hairstyle, adding volume and length that harmonize with your natural hair. When looking for a stylist skilled in extensions, consider the types of extensions showcased in their portfolio, such as tape-ins, weaves, or clip-ins. Assess their work critically—look for images of clients before, during, and after the extension application to gauge how well the stylist blends extensions with natural hair. It’s also important to check if they provide comprehensive care tips to maintain the health of both the extensions and the natural hair.

Assess Their Expertise During the Consultation

During your consultation, discuss your hair goals in detail. A good stylist will offer creative ideas and honest feedback about what will work best for your hair type and lifestyle. For those interested in extensions, ask about their preferred brands and the reasons behind their choices. This conversation can reveal a lot about their expertise and commitment to quality. 

Plan for Your Hair’s Future

A great stylist will not only focus on making you look good but also on keeping your hair healthy. During your consultation, discuss your hair care routine and see if the stylist suggests any specific treatments or products that will enhance and maintain the health of your hair. Establishing a clear plan for your hair's health and style is crucial for a lasting relationship with your stylist.
