Why should you book a consultation with your hair stylist?

At Major, we are hairdressers who specialise in listening. That’s why we offer all our clients a complimentary consultation before an appointment. That’s right, it’s completely free. We want to give you the opportunity to sit down, relax and discuss what you would like to achieve with your hair, in a comfortable environment. Your stylist will be able to talk to you one to one and make sure they really understand how you would like your hair to look.

You wouldn’t decide to get braces without the help of a dentist. Or choose a new car without some professional advice and a test drive. It really should be the same with your hair. As experienced hair stylists, we love it when our clients ask us for their help and advice. We know what will work for you and can share the knowledge we have picked up during our hairdressing careers.

A consultation is great if you are thinking about trying out a new hair colour. We have a number of colour consultants who will be more than happy to talk you through your options. They can asses your base colour, so they can tell which colours will work on your hair and how to get it to your optimum shade. Everyone’s hair is different – the exact shade, the texture, the length, the condition… It’s so important you go into a colour appointment understanding which colours will work.

A consultation is the perfect way to ensure this happens. Your stylist will show you a colour chart, so you can see colours in real life and hold them up against your own hair to match them with your skin tone.

If you are having a completely new colour, we will be able to give you an accurate quotation once you have had your consultation. Every colouring process is different – it’s an art! We would hate to give you a generic price over the phone, see your hair in real life and realise it will take twice as long as we thought – or, even worse, not be able to achieve the colour you want at all. Consultations allow us to continue delivering a high quality service for all our lovely clients.

It is also important that you have a skin test if you haven’t had a colour with us before, or within the last six months. This will check you are not allergic to the colour we use.

We apply a small patch of colour to your skin to make sure you don’t have a reaction – this needs to be done at least 48 hours before your appointment.

A consultation is also a great way to decide on a new hairstyle. Our stylists will discuss your new look with you, thinking about the practicalities and how easily you will be able to style it yourself at home. If there is anything specific you would like, bring along some photos to show us.

These are some of the ways in which a consultation can help you:

  • Decide on a new colour or style if you’re not sure what you want
  • Get the advice of a qualified, experienced stylist
  • Understand which colours will work with your hair
  • Get inspiration for a new haircut or complete restyle
  • Feel confident that your stylist understands what you want
  • Explore new ideas and learn about your hair type
  • Relax and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee!

To book your free consultation, please call 01604 708228 and speak to the salon of your choice – St Leonards Road, Weston Favell or Abington Grove.

If you don’t know the stylist you would like, we will match you with a stylist who can meet your needs. There is absolutely no obligation to book an appointment afterwards, and the consultation is completely free. We hope to see you soon and begin discussing your hair transformation!
