After watching this YouTube video created by a hair stylist, I just knew I had to blog about it. The title of his video is 3 Types of Hairdresser CLIENTS. At first I was like, "Uh-uh, no he didn't." But he does have some valid points. So it's all good. Now, it's my turn from a clients point of view to break down 3 Types of Hairdressers.
3 Types of HAIRDRESSERS
- FATAL ATTRACTION: This hairdresser is the bomb. This girl can DO some hair! Short hair, long hair, weave, whatever you want she can do it. Everybody walks out of the salon with their hair LAYED! The problem is she faithfully walks through the salon doors late with 4 heads looking at her. And don't even think about getting a discount because you were inconvenienced either! There is nothing you can do but sit there and vent on Facebook or text your friend about her. You text about how she is slow as hell and talks too damn much while she is doing hair, LOL! But you sit there and wait anyway. Why? Because this girl can DO SOME HAIR. Unfortunately, she is ALWAYS going out of town and she is super unfocused. One day this hairdresser is cutting her hours back because she has decided to become a lawyer. The next days it's a doctor, pastor and an actress. She is a fatal attraction.
- RIDE or DIE CHICK: This hairdresser is loyal to you because you are loyal to her. She lets you make last minute appointments and same day appointments. She will even take you at 6AM. If you have a special occasion or an event to attend, she will make sure you get out of there on time. She will show you what she used to achieve your look. And she will even show you how to maintain it, at home. Her prices aren't low but they aren't too high. They are just right, so when you pass her your money and she asks, "do you need change" you say no and leave her with a tip.
- THE PLAYA/PIMP/HUSTLER: This hairdresser is about that dollar-dollar bill y'all. She charges an arm, a leg & a breast. She charges for every-little-thing! And get this, she doesn't even want to wash your hair or even relax it! She passes those duties off to someone else in the salon until it's time for your hair to actually be styled. The client is nothing more than a dollar sign to her. In my opinion, this type of hairdresser is the worst!!!
Have any of you ladies ever sat in the chair of one of these types of hairdressers? Are their any other types that come to your mind? Also, what type of client do you consider yourself to be?
