Well, I Have Some Good News For You! You're In The Right Place!
Need a beauty shop for black hair care? Well that's easy because they are everywhere, but it can be challenging because there are so many factors to consider.
Does the salon put out quality work? Is the stylist skilled in delivering the style you want to achieve? And most important, are they on time?
How about the prices, are they reasonable or they overpriced? Are they good at providing excellent hair care services before and after the service?
Don't worry it's not hard because you've found me, and it will be lots of fun, we will get thru your journey together!
As a seasoned hairstylist in the business for over 25 years, my mission is to help you maintain your hair, bring out your inner beauty, and enhance your style!
I"m more than just a website, I am a real professional cosmetologist ready to serve you online & book your appointments if you live in the Jacksonville Fl area!
To start out, here are some tips on maintaining your hair and the number 1 mistake people make when searching for a beauty shop, hairstylist, or barber and how you can avoid it.
Do wrap your hair with a silk or satin scarf before going to bed each night. This keeps your hair from getting caught and splitting on your cotton pillowcase. OR always sleep on silk or satin pillowcases. (if you're rolling like that!)
Do massage your scalp frequently or get your significant other to massage it for you. Massaging the scalp increases the blood flow & releases natural oils that are good for your hair. This is why I massage with the finger tips when I do my shampoo service.
Do use plenty of conditioner, especially if you are using chemical straighteners. A leave-in conditioner along with a shine serum will make your hair look sleek and radiant.
Do wait at least three months between relaxing your hair and coloring it unless it is a semi permanent or demi color rinse. It’s a bad idea to hit your hair with too many drying chemicals at once.
If you want to chemically relax your hair, it’s a good idea to have it done at a reputable hair salon by a stylist who is familiar with African American hair like me! You can book your appointment or contact me here.
Don’t use too many tools, like hot combs and flat-irons that expose your hair to extreme heat. No matter how careful you are to moisturize, too much heat will cause damage, dried-out, impossible to style hair.
Don’t braid or twist your hair too tightly along the temples. This can cause a type of hair loss known as alopecia.
Don’t shampoo your hair every day. This strips the hair of natural oils and nutrients that help keep it healthy. Shampooing once every seven days is usually plenty.
Your hair can get the help it needs to stay looking its best only if you are willing to put a little time and energy into keeping it healthy by visiting this site or the beauty shop I work in. You can rest assured that you will look and feel fabulous.
The Mistake Of Choosing A Stylist Based On Their Price.
Have you heard of the saying "you get what you pay for?" I'm sure you have. Who ever said this spoke the truth. This is definitely true when choosing a hairstylist or barber.
If you want the highest degree of service, you should do business with a hairstylist or barber because of the overall value you receive, NOT because they are the cheapest price you can find.
Value = Quality + Service + Price
Plain and simple, no business can offer the cheapest price, have the best quality, and give the best service all at the same time.
You can get the best quality and first class service, but you can't get both and still get the cheapest price.
Why? Because hairstylists and barbers have a lot of overhead, employees, products, leases, continuing education, etc.
If you find a beauty shop or stylist where the prices are “too good to be true” then trust me, they are cutting comers some where.
It's gonna show up in the quality of their services and products, or the customer service they provide, something has to suffer to give you those super low prices.
Real value is in all three: Quality, Service, And Price!
The most common problems you will have when you pick a stylist based on low prices are:
1. Cheap hairstylist and barber salons don’t usually stand behind their work if there is a mistake. Sure, those stylists might charge you less, but how will they treat you when you are not happy?
The stylist who gives the cheapest price usually is inexperienced, with a license to practice, but little or no real-world skills.
The cheap hairstylists & beauty shops also cut corners by using cheaper products. The end result is “you get half of what you pay for.”
And that little bit of change you save ends up costing you
more in the long run, especially if you have to miss work or that special event because you’re home crying for 3 days after getting your hair “jacked up”.
This goes back to that old saying “you get what you pay for...”
2. A hairstylist that offers the lowest prices often has to compensate for being cheap with quantity. Not quality. Your salon experience is anything but relaxing when you are being herded like a sheep waiting for your turn to be shaved and then sent on your way.
