London: A website called beauty-advices.com has given some guidelines on how to choose a good hairdresser at the salon.

According to a news daily, the website provide tips for a top haircut, which include:

Choose a hairdresser who will listen to what you want and will make honest suggestions to you about your hair.

Ask them how long they have been doing hair. Find out what their experience is and if they have had any special training.

Some hairdressers may have a portfolio of their work, ask to see it. Does their work only include certain hairstyles? Does the hairdresser have experience in different techniques?

Once you have selected a hairdresser, schedule an appointment for just a style; a shampoo and blow-dry. This will give you the opportunity to see how they handle your hair. If you like the outcome, schedule a trim for the next visit.

Look at their hair. You don``t want to choose a hairdresser who has damaged, dirty or poorly maintained hair. Is the hairdresser professional looking?

When trying a new hairdresser it is important they pay attention to detail. Do they listen when you ask for just a trim, or do they just cut the hair before instructions are given?

A good hairdresser should stay focused on their client. They should not use the phone while working on a client’s hair.
