Five Benefits of Booking Biweekly Appointments With Your Hair Stylist


appointmentFor some women,a trip to the hair salon is a luxury expense. Something they only do for special occasions. For others, it’s a very necessary

As a hairstylist, I could pick any random woman off the street, and tell you which category she falls into. When someone’s hair is being professionally cared for on the regular IT SHOWS!


Even if said woman has it in a ponytail for a few days. The ends look fresh and clean. Hair is shinier and softer… These are just a few of the benefits…


  1. You will spend less money on hair products. If your stylist sells products inside her salon,she may try to get you to buy a few maintenance products for in between touch ups. But you should not be spending major bucks on hair curlers,shampoo,or chemicals. If you are going to the salon every two weeks,it’s already supplied there for you.  heat-damaged-natural-hair-simple
  2. You will have less damage. Often times when I see damage,it is on people who are advid “do-it-your-selfers”. They take risks to save money but often end up paying more to correct (or cover up) the damage they have done. Your stylist should be trimming,deep conditioning,etc. on a periodic basis during your visits. keravada
  3. Your hairstylist has better product knowledge. Hairstylist are taught in beauty school how to choose good products for the type of hair they will be servicing. It Isn’t just about the price. A 40$ bottle of shampoo will do nothing for someone whose hair is falling out in the sink. Your stylist will always know what to do and use when she sees your hair at your appointments. Which means your hair should ALWAYS look healthy! large
  4. Longer hair. If longer hair is your goal,good products,maintenance,and the regular, professional touch of a professional, will help! 1ef5e106699083860bfd71b2d35808ea
  5. Your hair will never be boring! Most hairstylist are creative by nature. Wanna try curls one week? Straight the next? Crochet after that? Your stylist should have you covered! You won’t have to worry about going back to your struggling ponytail after a hairstyle wears out. If you are on books regularly,that ponytail should be a thing of the past.
