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.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).

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

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

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.

What Shaving My Head Taught Me

There is no need to hide.


Some girls could never even dream about cutting five inches off of their hair, let alone shaving it. For the longest time, I was the same way. Seeing as I wasn't allowed to grow my hair out until fourth grade, cutting it all off again wasn't on my radar.

However, in my sophomore year of high school, I had my own Britney-Spears-Style meltdown and shaved it all off in my own bathroom. From then on, every time I tried growing my hair out, I'd always end up back in the same spot: shaving it all off again.

As I sit here with my hair well on its way towards shoulder length, I can't help but wonder why that urge kept hitting me.

It wasn't that I didn't like my hair. I'd come to terms with my frizzy curls long before I picked up the shaver. It's not any easier to manage at short lengths, either, especially when I tried growing it out. So, why on Earth did the urge keep hitting me? More importantly, why isn't it hitting me now?

Whether I like it or not, my hair had become a big part of my identity in high school. I'd dye it all kinds of crazy colors, and eventually, it was the first thing people thought about when they thought of me. It defined me, but I was also hiding behind it.

I realize now the only reason I'm comfortable growing it out again is that, for the first time in what feels like eons, I don't feel the need to hide. I'm at a point in my life where I can be unapologetically me. That being said, I also realize there are plenty of others out in the world doing the same thing without knowing it.

As a society, we are all trying to fit into unrealistic expectations. We fear what other people might think of us, and that fear blinds us from seeing that the only acceptance we truly need comes from within.

If you find yourself hiding, remember that there is more room outside the box you're trying to fit into.
