How to choose a hairdresser in Hamilton
Hairdressers (and their esteemed colleagues barbers, hair stylists, cosmetologists, and estheticians) account for a multibillion dollar industry. Your typical Hamilton hairdresser may work at a hair salon, a beauty salon, or out of his/her home.
If you are looking for a hairdresser in Hamilton, odds are that you need a haircut. You may already have an idea for the type of hairstyle you would like - short vs long, curly vs straight, layered, highlights, updo, coloured, etc.
On the other hand, you may be looking for inspiration for your new hairstyle. If this is the case, we suggest that you look around for hairstyles that you like. Ask for a Hamilton hair salon referral from people with hairstyles that you admire. Another way to find a hairdresser is to check online directories such as this one. Location can be a big factor in choosing a hairdresser, so search for some nearby.
Once you have a few hairdressers in mind, visit them at their place of business. Make sure that it is clean and well-lit. You don't want your hairdresser squinting while she cuts your hair. A good hairdresser or barber will listen to you and offer recommendations for the hairstyles that suit you best.
If you are considering a new hairdresser or Hamilton barber, one tactic is to try them out with something small before committing to a more complex hairstyle. A simple trim or colouring job, for example. Often, the only way to tell whether a hairdresser is right for you is to take the plunge and see how it turns out. Thankfully, hair grows back.
