Why book a hair consultation with your stylist?

At Major, we are all about listening. That’s why we offer all our clients a complimentary consultation before an appointment. That’s right, it’s completely no obligation to book and totally 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 if you’re unsure, we can guide you towards what will work best for your face shape, skin tone, lifestyle, and upkeep commitment.

A hair consultation is great if you are thinking about trying out a new hair colour or even a complete restyle. We have a number of colour technicians 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 for 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. This is why it’s best to speak to a trained professional first, so they can advise you on the colours that are possible, and the ones that aren’t.

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 hair colour or cut, 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 hair 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 hair 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 hair 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.
