We all love to go to the hair salon sometimes when a celebrities pops up that we might be interested in – as well as to pamper us all on a date, straighten our unruly locks, or simply get a great haircut that makes us feel better overall. But like all industrial beauty salons, it has a dark side that not many people know about. We all want to look more beautiful like celebrities and some hair stylists use it to their advantage, market some of our imaginations that we have seen on some celebrities or actors, and sell us procedures that are either expensive or don’t last long at all. Here are 10 ways beauty salons can deceive you.
Cutting your hair with hot scissors is one of those expensive procedures that do not really make sense, but cost twice as much due to the use of special heat scissors. The trick is that these scissors prevent split ends, hence the price. In fact, if you cut your hair regularly – you won’t have those split ends, your stylist will cut them anyway. So why choose an expensive procedure? So why choose an expensive procedure? Do you want to look like a TV celebrities?
Hair lamination will disappoint you. You will find out once the product is washed off, your hair will end up looking the same as it did before lamination. It happens so quickly, you may be surprised to know that it only lasts a few weeks!
Don’t be surprised when you know that hair Botox will eventually drain all your money because once you have the procedure, you will need to repeat it over and over if you want your hair to look decent (like celebrities). When the product is applied to your hair it looks great, but within 60 to 90 days it wears out completely and your hair may look worse than before which is kind of frustrating for us. The new treatment will cost about $70, depending on the length of your hair. It’s a never ending story, so if you don’t have a fortune to spend only on your hair, skip this procedure altogether and forget about fashion and celebrities.
Everyone goes for Ombre styles these days – it’s even hard to tell these women apart sometimes. Solid and natural hair colors stand out more and they are much cheaper. What’s more important, they do less damage to your hair than all these complicated procedures.
Don’t believe anyone who says you can’t have healthy hair without attending beauty salons. This is simply not true! Cut your hair ends regularly, always put on some protection products before drying your hair, avoid using curling iron too often, and skip those damaging lighting procedures. You hair will look great!
Always pay attention to what your hairdresser is doing and if you’re not sure – just ask! Sometimes they might apply a hair mask you didn’t ask for or another expensive product without telling you and later they’ll tell you to pay for it. It’s best to be clear about things from the start.
Hairdressers can mess up a dying job – in this case they’ll use a tonic shampoo to fix the hue. You’ll find out about that only after you come home and wash your hair. If someone has messed up and tried to cover it up – go back to the hair salon and ask them to fix the mistake. They’re obliged to do it!
Always listen to what a hair stylist has to say about the haircut you want – maybe you hair simply doesn’t match that style. If that’s the case, better think about another hairstyle, because the haircut you want might look good in a hair salon, but what about when you wake up next morning and have to style it yourself?
Strong unnatural colors like green, violet, and blue will not stay for long and will wash out in a few weeks. The color will become dirty and unbearable in a month and you’ll have to either redo the whole procedure or choose a more natural color. If you choose to continue with the bright color, please mind that your hair will become thin and very fragile as a result.
A little trick for lovers of crazy colors – get some hair extensions and dye them any color you want! They will last long and your natural hair won’t be damaged at all.
