Tips on Finding a Good Hairdresser

Hairdressers are located in most – if not all – towns and cities around the world. Probably one of the longest going businesses in the world (razors have been found as far back as the Bronze Age – 3500 BC), and is even mentioned in the bible. However, in the past hairdressers & barbers were also dentists and surgeons, carrying out tooth extraction, blood letting, and a few other minor tasks. Often, it was quite bloody, and the red & white poles outside many hairdressers were originally placed because blood soaked towels were wrapped around poles to show that a barber was there!

Nowadays it’s a lot more civilized and hygienic, with hairdressers concentrating on cutting and styling hair than dentistry and surgery. Hairdressers are now responsible for styling hair in new and wonderful fashions, but how do you find a good one, or one that you like? Well, here’s some advice, from a group of Bangor Hairdressers, on what to look for in a hairdresser.

The first thing is quality. I’m not saying sit outside every single hairdressers in the town you live in and see which ones you like, but ask your friends who have nice where their hair gets cut. If it’s local and near, why not plonk a visit for the next time? 90% of trade done for hairdressers is through recommendation, so they’ll do the best job they can.

The second thing is price. Men generally are a little more cheaper to cut than women, however men usually need it done more often. Even so, you can usually get a great price for what you want done. Obviously stylist hair is more expensive than just a straight cut, however for special occasions getting your hair restyled by a professional is a great way of giving yourself a new and fresh look – you may even learn something!

Finally, and you’ll only know this once you are finished after your first haircut, did you enjoy it? A lot of hairdressers do it because it’s a social experience, rather than the quality of the cut. Did you have a good chat with your hairdresser? If so, then it’s well worth it! Of course, some people prefer just a cut and then leave. If you’re there though, you may as well enjoy it!
