The Importance of a Proper Consultation

Did you know we offer a free 15-minute consultation?

As professional hairstylists, we believe a successful consultation plays a vital role in your experience at Thair Hair boutique and Spa because it allows you to provide all the information you want in order to achieve your perfect haircut.

So here's the best way to get the most out of your free 15-minute consultation and find your perfect style:

Build a Rapport

A successful consultation will help you and your hairdresser build a relationship where you can feel confident and trust the work they're going to do. Not only does a proper consultation avoid negative consequences, but it allows you and your hairdresser time to understand each other, so you know you're in capable hands, and you know what to expect going into an appointment.

This is why it's essential to discuss all your likes and dislikes and be totally honest about what you're looking for. The stylist will want to know what you love, what you hate, what you’re dreaming about.

If you're the type of person who wants a change and feels comfortable giving your stylist complete creative freedom, then go for it! If you’re genuinely open to letting us choose a style for you, it's fun for us to let our professional expertise and creativity work for you.

However, if you have a very clear idea of what you want, we are ready to deliver it! We strive to give you a perfect look that you’ll love every single time. Just keep in mind that telling us exactly how to do the cutting itself can be an issue because if there are too many rules, it makes it hard for us to design something that works for you and doesn't allow our skill and creativity to come out.

An excellent consultation is a two-way street. Don't be shy to give as much detail about the cut you want but allow your stylist to offer feedback about what will work for you.

Remember, it's all about building rapport and a trusting relationship!

Bring Pictures

One of the best ways for us to understand what you're looking to do with your hair is through pictures-especially now that the internet has millions of great hairstyle photos to choose from.

It’s best to bring to consider photos of people with the same hair texture, length, thickness, and facial complexion that you have. Consider that the same hairstyle will not look good or even be possible for all hair types.

During your consultation, let your hairstylist know what you like about the look. Is it the colour? The cut? The style itself? Bring in a few images so your stylist can work with you to pinpoint precisely what you like.

Be Realistic

Celebrities spend hours with professional stylists to perfect the look of their hair. Often the photos we bring in don't show the extensions, or clip in pieces that make those celebrity looks work. So if you're not open to extensions or you have very short hair, you'll have to be realistic about the kinds of styles that'll work for you.

On the other hand, if you have very long hair, it can take longer to colour or lighten and will require more product, which is why it's important to set realistic expectations. If you come in with black hair and ask to go blonde, that won't happen in just one sitting.

But... that's precisely why we offer a free 15-minute consultation! It's the perfect time to get on the same page with your hair goals and clear up any misunderstandings before the haircut begins. Together, you’ll be able to avoid unachievable styles and have clear expectations. We believe a thorough consultation means a happy client.
