How to Get the Best Haircut
Getting your hair cut and styled but a true pro is a decision that must be weighed carefully—unless you have an extensive hat collection to hide a bad outcome. To ensure a good cut, use these tips:
- Always take time to look up reviews on their Facebook page, Google or Yelp.
- Book a consultation if you're considering a drastic change to your hairstyle or color.
- Save inspiration photos on your phone, including different angles and lighting.
- Talk it out, be specific and take their advice. But stand your ground if necessary.
- Don't be afraid to ask questions and only proceed when you're 100% comfortable.
- Be realistic—nobody can look like Jennifer Anniston even with the same haircut.
So, whether you're ready to fix your pandemic home haircut or simply need a spectacular stylist to tame your wild locks, our neighborhood experts know exactly where to go. Agents at PorchLight Real Estate Group are not only the best around, but they look good doing what they do.
