Analysis is key
The more knowledge you gather about your clients and their hair, the easier it will be to match their needs.
That’s why a thorough analysis of the present hair condition and its 5-year history is key for a good consultation.
“We examine nothing less but hair type, natural hair level, the percentage of grey hair, (previous) medication or illnesses, scalp condition and also the hair’s porosity and elasticity from roots to ends“, explains Claire from Claire Hair Boutique in Perth.
“All these factors play a role in how a certain colour can be achieved, after all”.
Apart from these technicalities, it’s essential to also take personal factors into consideration.
“I always ask my guests about their lifestyle, working environment and care and styling routines – especially if they have shown me a picture of a hairstyle they would like. This is to see whether it’s achievable and if they can maintain the look at home“, Claire says.
