Kim is correct. It depends on which stylist you feel most comfortable with. Though opinions do help when you are deciding on either salon receiving great reviews.
But Dear Mary, I hate to break the news to you that there is no such thing as "THE BEST SALON" because what works for one person made not work for the other said Leslie Correa. There are differences in personality,chemistry, and considering the atmophere. Now I wrote that part.LOL!!
The fact that the stylist is well educated in thermal reconditioning shouldn't be enough to decide on. Though it should be the number one criteria, but you need to know more about the stylist as a person. Does he or she cares about your concerns, and talks to you with respect? Do you have to sign any waiver against lawsuit, just in case your hair gets destroy? Maybe the other person, who praised the salon for a job well done, doesn't mind signing a waiver, but what about you?
That is why it is best to find out for yourself, and the best and only way is by a consultation with a stylist.
A consultation will help you decide which stylist you trust to do your hair. You can choose to set up an appointment with either both stylists, or the stylist of your choice.
There is one important step that we all must take before a consultation. That is we must educate ourselves on thermal reconditioning.
It is important that you educate yourself before getting a thermal reconditioning done, and to learn all there is to know, and the altering effect it will have on your hair. By educating yourself, you will not only protect yourself, but you can compare what you already know to the stylist's credential. If there is any sense of discomfort during the consultaion, then you must decide then by saying I'll think about it,or gently decline the offer. But don't ablige yourself when it comes to your hair, just because somebody else gave some good remarks to the same stylist you felt uncomfortable with.
Leslie Correa wrote a 5 parts series, article title, "A GUIDE TO Thermal Reconditoning."If you take the time to read it, I believe you'll feel more confident in your decision making.
He always encourages us to read, read, and understand what a thermal reconditioning is all about and also "MAKING SURE YOUR STYLIST UNDERTSAND YOU". In other word, make sure you and your stylist is on the same page when it comes to deciding on a hairstyle you want.
The best way is by showing:like photos,magazines, pics, rather than just talking alone, because what you mean by red, could be a different red in the mind of the stylist. Do be careful to the fact that your terminology, and the stylist terminology can be significantly different based on his or her level of education in cosmetology. Do ask question if it's not clear to you in what it appears to be understood.
During the consultation, there (must) be a good chemistry felt between you and the stylist, because chemisrty( un aware) whether good or bad can effect how your hair turns out.That is why it is very important to have a good relationship with the person doing your hair. In your relationship with your stylist, does he or she listen to you? Do you feel comfortable asking alot of questions if you need to? Do you feel free to challenge his or her background on thermal reconditioning and etc?
These are signs to look for.
Best wishes on your decision making Mary.
