Make sure you go to the salon with ideas!

Give your stylist as much information as you can. Tear out pictures from magazines, take in celebrity references, even bring in photos of friends with hair that you like! Be descriptive with what you DON'T want as well as what you do want. These are equally as important pieces of information for your hairdresser.

IT'S GOOD TO TALK

It's important that you feel comfortable enough to chat with your stylist as building trust and communication are the building blocks to having a great relationship with your hairdresser. Don't think about the haircut you're having right now, but think about the haircut you'll be having in the future.


BE REALISTIC

You may want a bleached blonde sleek bob, but if you're sporting black, coarse curls, you may want to rethink! Your hairdresser will advise you on what's best for your hair and which styles will suit your face shape, as well as recommending colour for you that won't damage the condition of your hair. Listen to your stylist! Your hair is a representation of their work and they want you to look your best!

Don't be late for an important salon date!

BE PUNCTUAL

Being a bit late for an appointment might not seem like a big deal, but it chips away at the amount of time you have with your stylist and you don't want them to be rushed when they're doing your hair!


DO YOUR RESEARCH

I think it's best if you do your homework on a salon before booking an appointment. Are you looking for a salon with a beauty bar? Would you prefer a luxury experience or something that's a bit more no muss, no fuss? What's the ambience like? Do you like the hair that the stylists have? Get researching and you'll find the best salon for you!

Unfortunately, {0} doesn’t want to receive emails from ghd, so we cannot send them your hint. But don’t worry, here's a couple of ways to get what you want, including:

  1. Leave not-so-subtle hints with strategically placed magazines and the ghd adverts circled
  2. Share our social posts so they #getthehintdarling

We think
they’ve got
the hint

You know what you want, and we like that! We are on a missions to make sure you get the gift you really want, and it seems you are too. Unfortunately, sometimes less is more and you have used all of your hints for today. But there is always tomorrow!

Suprises can be great when they're just what you're after. We hope your not-so-subtle hint gets you the gift you really want. Just to make sure, drop more hints so they get the message.
