15 Signs You Have The Right Hair Stylist

15 Signs You Have The Right Hair Stylist

It's hard to find that perfect person to do your hair, but once you find them, don't lose them.

I was getting my hair touched up this morning with some fresh color, and as I was sitting in the salon chair I started to think to myself "I found the perfect person to do my hair." I went through multiple stylists before I finally found the perfect one for me. Then it hit me, most people don't know if they've found the right person or not. Today, I'm going to share 15 signs you can look for if you aren't sure if you've found the right person or not.

1. They listen to you

It's always nerve wrecking having someone new do your hair because they've never done it before. It's worse though when you have someone who won't listen to your needs and will do what they want anyway.

2. They communicate with you

They will keep you informed with what they are doing with your hair. You won't ever sit in that chair wondering what the heck they're doing.

3. They make you feel comfortable

As soon as you walk in the door they greet you and offer you coffee. After a while, the salon starts to feel like your home away from home.

4. You're excited to go to the hair salon

You have an early morning appointment, but you don't care because you know you're about to get your hair done.

5. You don't have to say anything

They won't judge you if you don't want to talk to them, but they will still talk to you. Sometimes you don't have to say anything for them to know what's going on.

6. They have your color memorized

As soon as you walk in the door your Stylist instantly knows what color you want and has it mixed up and ready to go.

7. They know what style you like

They know you want to grow your hair, so if you make the comment of cutting it all off they will stop you and talk you out of it. Once they know you 150% want it done, then they will do it.

8. No judgement zone

You can walk into the Hair Salon looking like crap, wearing two different colored socks and no makeup on and they won't judge you. Trust me, they wish they could walk into work looking like that too.

9. Lots, and I mean LOTS of laughter

You can't go 30 minutes without laughing at each other. Whether it be at something someone said or at other clients in the Salon, you can't stop laughing.

10. Time flies by

For an average hair color for me, it takes roughly 2 to 2.5 hours, but at the end of it, I feel like I've been there for 30 minutes.

11. You trust them with anything

You can tell your Stylist to do whatever they want with your hair because you trust them with anything, literally. If they have an idea of how to make your hair look better you just tell them to go for it.

12. You can talk about anything

You can literally talk about anything that ranges from work problems to conversations that probably shouldn't be discussed in the Hair Salon.

13. They aren't just your stylist, they're your friend

You text your Stylist when you want to make an appointment and then afterwards just talk to her like normal. Your Stylist knows everything about you, they might as well be your friend too.

14. They know your life story

Depending on how long you've had your Stylist for, they probably know your life story and if they don't, then they are about to find out.

15. They are simply perfect

Everything they do is simply perfect. From their personality to their styling skills, you wouldn't want anyone else to do your hair. It's hard to find that perfect person, but once you find them, don't lose them.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.

16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

Shaving My Head Taught Me That Self-Confidence Does Not Depend On How I Look

Shaving my head helped me gain more self-confidence than I ever thought possible.


Hair is something that has more power over us than we think. Historically, hair was viewed as a way to identify your gender, marital status, religion, or social position. In the Quapaw tribe, single Native American women wore their hair in braids, while the married woman wore it long and loose. Hair can be sacred, as well. Many Sikhs believe that hair should not be cut in any way, as it is a gift from God.

In most of Western society, hair serves simply as a gender marker. Although we are straying away from traditional gender roles, long hair usually signifies femininity and short hair represents masculinity. The media portrays desirable young women with long, silky, effortlessly perfect hair.

For me, my hair served as a comfort. Although I struggled with its frizziness, brittleness, and tangle-ability, I relied on it to make me feel secure. When it hung to my waist in high school, I would use it to cover up my arms and shoulders when I wore sleeveless tops, as I didn't like these parts of my body.

As a child, I remember watching Natalie Portman on the Oprah Winfrey show, talking about having to shave her head for a movie role. Even though I thought it was extreme, her calm and pragmatic demeanor about it changed my perceptions on having a shaved head. I remember her saying, "I always wanted to do it once in my life, anyways. It'll grow back my natural color eventually."

Months before I left for college, I began to devise a plan. I would dye my hair the fun colors that I wasn't allowed to in high school, and then shave it all off for the new year. I got started the week after I moved into my dorm and bleached my hair. As the chemicals burned my scalp and made my eyes water, I realized that there was no going back now. I had committed to shaving my head.

When January rolled around, I was starting to get apprehensive. The weekend I had marked on my calendar approached, and I trekked through a snowstorm to the nearest SportsClips. The barber seemed bewildered at my request but didn't give me any time to reconsider. She took the clippers right to my head, and I watched as my bleach-damaged locks fell to the ground, much like the snow outside.

The first week was hard. I didn't recognize my reflection and often caught myself reaching up to play with my non-existent hair out of habit. I only went out in girly outfits or a full face of makeup, as I felt the need to assert my femininity.

As the weeks went on, however, I began to fall in love with my stubbly head.

Would I recommend shaving your head? I would. Although the journey has been challenging, the benefits make the shave well worth it. Not only do save time in the morning, but I also have learned how to stop hiding behind my hair.

Shaving my head taught me how to stop relying on my appearance for self-assurance. When I had long hair, I would often base my validation around how I looked. Although it provided me temporary confidence, it meant that I wasn't placing any confidence in my other traits. I cared more about how the world saw me than how it heard me. Now that I've stripped myself of my comfort blanket, I feel as though I can conquer anything, no matter how I look.
