“Insta hairdressers only rate you when you’re bait.”
Let’s keep it a buck. Hairdressing professionals and customer service can sometimes be miles apart. Popular hairstylists have previously been put on blast for poor customer service – if you know, you know. I can completely understand the frustration behind it but there are certainly ways we can address this issue and give constructive criticisms without having to drag for filth. It shouldn’t even have to get to that but, yes, quite frankly girls are coughing up too much coin to have to deal with inadequacies.
Oh and whilst we’re on it – are we still keeping quiet about hairstylists who’ll break their backs for public figures but stitch a half-assed wig for a regular girl? It’s no secret. It’s sort of embarrassing to watch. Of course influencers may get you the attention you need, but you still need to be good at what you do, every time you do it and for everyone you do it for. Shady businesses do not last long.
If you have decided to be a service provider, there is little room for excuses. Hairdressers shouldn’t try and avoid confronting their errors. They should, rather, prepare for worst-case scenarios and have alternatives set in place for when a customer may not be happy. It’s important to understand the transition between doing hair for your girls and providing a quality hair service to c l i e n t s. Aim to have accountability and maintain professionalism!
