Looking for a new hair stylist this year? You need the best one….

How do you find him/her?

Before, you probably got recommendations from friends and family members on hair salons they like to goto. Today in 2021, we count on and rely mainly on a Google search, then to the salon’s Instagram then to the stylist’s pages and so on. We may ask our friends and family, but likely if they have someone they prefer and you need in within the week, you won’t be able to. The busier hair stylists often times do not have the room on their calendar for weeks and a lot of times months before they can fit you in.

So what do you do when you find yourself in need of a new “hair salon and stylist”???

First, health is the most important thing for you to think about when looking for a hair salon and hair stylist. You should go to a salon that is near your area so that you can establish a go to salon for not only their skills and reputation but for convenience and the time you will save from drive time.

You also need to compare several salons near you and make sure which one has a reputation for being known as the professional and educated hair stylists in the area and who care about their staff and what work they are putting out there. Also another key indicator you are making a great choice are the products and brands they use and carry for retail purchase.


A good brand that stands behind their products and partner salons tend to have the best stylists too. Many top salons offer leading education and training programs that give stylists valuable hands on experience they need. The price will be the last thing to check, in fact, you should focus more on hair stylist and salon that can provide professional, high quality professionals, services and products instead of those who have the cheapest prices. You do get what you pay for when it comes to hair. As the old saying goes “Good hair isn’t cheap and cheap hair isn’t good…”

It is true. You do get what you pay for!

And typically speaking a salon that is cheap uses cheap products, has staff that is not trained or versed in chemical services and most likely have hired to fill the space. Find a salon who cares about their staff, who is always educating and certifying their team with the knowledge and know how it takes to yield 5 star services and hair. So who are we at FRINGE?
