Take Copious Notes From Your Stylist

You say honey, I say honey, but what color comes out on your hair? People have different interpretations of hair color descriptions, so just as it's smart to take pictures of what you like and don't like, to the salon, it's wise to keep track of your color.

My favorite stylist keeps index cards on all her clients with their colors, conditioning treatments, cuts, etc., which proved very handy when I relocated. I just had her copy it for me, down to application notes and times. Even if you're not planning to move or change stylists, many people have eliminated nonessential beauty treatments due to the recession and it'd be rather helpful to know what your highlights and lowlights were when the economy picks back up again, right?

I always bring in pictures to the salon. Last month I showed her a picture from my phone and she replicated it perfectly. I also take pictures every time I get my hair done and put them in an album so I can see my hair progression and remember what I liked and didn't like. I have one on here.

My stylist does this also. The first time I saw her pull it out I was impresssed! Very smart thing to do. When I make an appointment they ask if I want the same or something different, when I get there and walk up to the dye area Barb's (her name) has everything waiting for me so we dont waste time! She alreayd knows my color, what I want and how much she needs.

Great idea. Alas I have been to about 4 different people in the last 6 yrs and done so many different color applications I wing it in most cases...
