Expert stylist offers ideas for duplicating your fresh-from-the-salon look at home
3. Practice makes perfect
No one masters a stylist’s technique right off of the bat. The perfect amount of diffusing or even using your finger to add definition to your curl all takes practice so make sure you put in the hours! Keep in mind if you are trying a different technique and you have an event to attend, practice days in advance so you can nail the look.
4. Do what your stylist said
Many times stylists tell us what to do and then we do it differently, whether it be because we forgot or we don’t have the time. If you are trying to add volume to your hair or enhance your curls, make sure you do it exactly the way the stylist described. They are the professionals!
5. Book a styling appointment if needed
Sometimes it’s really difficult to get a look down after the first try. If you are having a hard time, call your stylist and book an appointment specifically to go over the styling. They can walk you though what you need to do and give you suggestions you might have missed the first time.
