For a haircut to look beautiful, a good hairdresser needs to have a lot of elements in mind. Every person has their own uniqueness, and so does the hair.
A hair stylist should give professional advice to the client, keeping in mind their wishes and expectations. Thus, can both sides agree on, what kind of haircut will be executed.
Before a haircut can be given, the hairdresser needs to go over a few things. The hairdresser starts with getting to know the hair structure, hair thickness, hair quality and shape of the head. The hairdresser looks over the shape of the client’s head and his/her hair while the hair is dry and in its natural state.
Firstly, the hairdresser should find out the natural flow (fall) of the client’s hair. The hairdresser needs to locate the whorls* and a natural hairline. These usually indicate the overall length of the haircut. The choice of a haircut depends also on the shape of the face and the uniqueness of the head shape. Before the hairdresser can give out recommendations, he/she should keep in mind the client’s own style preferences, body shape, lifestyle, age and more.
