Post How to go about finding a good hair stylist/colorist?

I have been through about 3 different hair stylists and 1 hair colorist who have not given me what I wanted. I have made it clear to all of these hair stylists how I am looking to grow my hair very long. All of them fought me every step of the way and basically said my hair won't grow long and they always kept it short. Yet I have picture proof from when I was a teenager (I'm 19 now) it was super long. They also keep trying to cut my hair into layers when I want it all the same length. And I had a terrible color experience with the 1 hair colorist.

So how do people pick a good hair stylist/hair colorist? Is it word of mouth or what? It seems like I can never find a good one. They never do what I ask for, they always do what they think is best. And I'm the paying customer. Any suggestions?

Oh and here's what I'm looking for if this helps:

Long healthy natural looking blonde hair with a side fringe (all the same length except for the side fringe)

Default How to go about finding a good hair stylist/colorist?

Well, I usually find a hair stylist/colorist by seeing two things. The first one is how they style the hair i.e. do they listen to customers or not? and the second is I usually see how they keep their salons. Like the salon where I am currently going is such that they are using an equipment called color rack to arrange the colors in a systematic way.

Colouring hair tends to make the ends break off as it ages. Perhaps you didn't have it coloured as a teen?

Calling the local beauty supply companies to find out who their colour techs are would lead you to people who have a lot of training and more knowledge than most.
