A PRO hairstylist has revealed the five things all hairstylists want to tell clients but usually don’t.
When it comes to being the perfect client in the salon, there are some things stylists would like you to do during your appointment and before.
TikTok user @highkeyhair is known for sharing her hair care tips online and she’s revealed all the important things your stylist probably wants to tell you, but doesn’t.
Turns out how you sit when you get your hair washed before the cut is actually quite important, and when stylists criticize your choices for cheap products – it’s not just because they want to shoot profit from expensive products.
So if you want to make sure your hair is always up to par and in its best condition, you might want to take note of the following.
Always tilt your head back into the shampoo bowl
It may seem simple that you have to put your head back in the sink when you get your hair washed before you cut it.
While there’s nothing better than a soothing head massage while your stylist washes your hair, apparently many of us are guilty of sitting with our heads facing forward in the groove of the bowl.
Demonstrating the correct way to sit – with your head tilted back – the hair professional reveals: “This is how you should be in the shampoo bowl – not like this [straight on]we can’t reach this part [points at top of head].
“We appreciate you trying to help us when we wash your hair, but the minute you do that, the water rises in that shirt.”
Nine times out of 10, your stylist will automatically try to correct your positioning.
“If they go like this [pulling head back] they try to hold your head back, you better tell your customers what to do, I do. Keep your head back,” she insisted.
Do not move your head while your hair is cut
Another rule of thumb that should be common knowledge, but we’re probably all guilty of fidgeting and adjusting our heads, whether it’s checking our phone or flipping through a magazine, and it turns out it doesn’t. there is nothing more boring.
“I know what it is, we get so anxious when we’re sitting really still and trying to get our hair cut, you have to sit still and you have to keep your head down if they tell you… don’t move “, revealed the stylist.
If you feel your stylist twisting your head towards the center, you’re moving it too much.
Trust the color process
Often you look at the color of the dye in the bowl and it can look a little scary. Either it looks too dark or too light, but it won’t on your real hair.
“When the color is processed on your head, mixed in the bowl, or when wet in the shampoo bowl, it’s going to appear darker,” she revealed.
“Nine times out of 10 it’s not as dark as you think…we just trust what we mix.”
There’s a reason why you shouldn’t use cheap products
Every salon has the products they like to offer, but even if you think your stylist is just trying to get you to spend more money, there’s actually a bigger reason they’re criticizing your cheap product choices.
“I know what you’re thinking, why stylists always blame us for using cheap products, it’s expensive. We don’t really care that you’re using cheap products, I get it, hair is expensive , but we only care about when we have to do our hair,” the stylist explained in another video.
“Cheap products use cheap ingredients…this creates a waxy coating on the outside of your hair, whether you see it or not, it’s there. Imagine applying heat to it, it will melt it all away. in your hair, which is not good.”
Such buildup can wreak havoc on your hair, especially if you color or bleach it.
“When you first come in for a chemical surface like coloring your hair or bleaching, we have to remove the buildup first, which takes time and costs money, so it’s just fine with you. cost more. It can cause a chemical reaction and fry your hair,” she said.

Don’t use too much shampoo
Thanks to TikTok, we’re revolutionizing the way we wash our hair, with professionals burning us for using too much shampoo or smearing the ends of our hair.
If your roots still look oily and the ends of your hair still feel dry, you need to change your shampoo routine.
“Are your roots oily and your ends dry? You’re over-shampooing…If your shampoo runs out before your conditioner, you need to turn it inside out,” the stylist warned in a Publish.
She shared her own hair care experience where she only shampooed her hair every seven to 10 days.
“I’d like to think I’m doing all the right things. I don’t shampoo a lot, I leave in conditioners, I don’t heat up a lot, I take care of my hair. But, I’ve been experimenting” , she explained.
“I have fine hair and I wash my hair every 7-10 days…it’s disgusting – no I condition it every 3 days and let me tell you my hair has never felt better, it has never been so soft, nourished and healthy.
“I thought I was going to be dripping with oil now and I’m not. It’s just a little oil and can we just normalize having a little oil on our hair because it’s is so good for us.”
