I time travel every 5-6 weeks when I journey to my hairstylist's; who then turns back the clock 10 years when she dyes that grey out of my hair!
Who wants to look like a granny when they are in their 30's? Not this poodle. Age gracefully? HA!
A trip to the hair salon, and your favorite stylist, is the fastest way to erase signs of aging. You emerge a refreshed and renewed you. Your stylist lets you talk away your blues while they artfully arrange your hair. You melt under their practiced hands, and let your worries flow by.

Sound good?! For us, the client, it is! But what about our stylist??
Most of us equate a visit to the salon with relaxation and pampering. Stylists equate it with work. Yep, work. No matter how much your stylist may love you, seeing you in their chair, means they have a job to do. So shouldn't we show our affection for them by making that job easier??
To that end, these are my poodle-do's and don'ts for your next sojourn in the stylist's chair:
*DON'T wear earrings! You'll stylist will have to remind you to remove them, and chances are you'll forget them.
*DO tip generously! Many stylist's keep their prices low for their loyal clients- show them how thankful you are!
*DON'T wear a turtleneck to your next cut! You could end up with a wet and itchy neck.
*DO feel free to chat! Most stylist's are people persons who love the interaction. But don't forget to leave them space to speak!
*DON'T wear a white shirt for a dye job! Unless you want a brand new tye-dyed tee!
*DO bring pictures of your desired look, if you are planning a change.
*DON'T expect the impossible! Black to blonde in ONE appointment?! Really??
And last but not least,
*DO reschedule!!!! Nothing is worse than calling your stylist the day before you "need" your hair done, and expecting them to fit you in! (You know who you are--Procrastinating Poodles!)
I looooo-vvvvv-e my hairstylist!! She rocks my red hair needs! And I can't wait for my next jaunt in her hair-chair!
Hopefully I DO follow my own advice!!
