Is she telling you the truth about your hair. She is your girlfriend, but she might just be trying to spare your feelings.
Everyday we rely on the opinions of others for how we look. Unfortunately, asking a friend her opinion or the truth about your hair may leave you both in an awkward position. Why would she want to hurt your feelings if she can say whatever it is to make you feel good.
Working in a hair salon as a hair stylist of many years, I’ve learned that the wrong person to ask about your hair is a friend. That’s my job! The really great part is you don’t have to rely on your friends for the truth about your hair and put them in the position to lie to you. A hair salon is the best place to get the truth about your hair. I get paid for it. As a professional it’s my role to make sure you’re wearing the right hairstyle and color that suits you. As a trained expert, I will make sure you don’t have to put your friends on the spot.
The reason I’ve been in the business of beauty for so many years is truth telling is part my job description that helps build trust. Yes, sometimes the truth hurts, but you’re going to look beautiful at the hair salon at the end of the day.
So the next time you need to run your hair by someone, make sure it’s a trained professional at a hair salon who knows how to politely and diplomatically tell you the truth. Don’t put your friends in the awkward position of having to do it.
Your 90’s hairstyle or that darker shade you used to love may not be working for you anymore. So, next time you’re at the hair salon, ask your hairstylist what they think about your current style. If they’re good at what they do, they’ll tell you the truth. It’s the kind of truth everyone needs to know. Ask Michael at MJ Hair Designs.
