Choosing a Hairdresser 

A good hairdresser is just as vital to pretty hair as the right hair-care equipment and the ideal style. However, a good hairdresser is hard to find. Here are some tips to help you in your search.

Your hairdresser should give you a style that fits both your hair-type and your lifestyle. If you spend a great deal of time outdoors, on the job or off, you don't want a hairstyle that must be constantly protected from the weather elements.

The same goes if you live in a damp or windy climate. Don't let anyone talk you into a difficult style.

You must be able to manage your hair yourself between visits to the salon. Does your style look good only after it's been professionally done? Then it may be time to find a new hairdresser who's a better stylist.

The cut should grow out gracefully, too. If it is scruffy and scraggy by the third week, the cut wasn't good to begin with. Even hair that grows rapidly should look good for about five to six weeks.

One of the best ways to find a good hairdresser is through word of mouth. (Trial and error works but the errors can be very trying). So ask friends, neighbors, co-workers, even strangers whose hair-dos you like, for the name of their hairdresser. It's detective work that should payoff.

Hair Accessories - Try plain barrettes or small hair combs to rescue a fallen style. If hair is longer, you can sweep it back with a coated band. Have a ready supply of these in your make-up bag or desk drawer for when your hair-or the weather-has an off day.
