Three Signs You're Ready For A New Hair Stylist

A Hair Stylist isn’t merely someone who cuts or styles your hair; they become an essential part of your self-expression and confidence. However, there might become a moment when you feel that your current stylist is no longer the best fit for you. 

To learn more about Wisteria Avenue Hair Salon, our about us page outlines our four point guarantee each client can expect and our frequently asked questions page for more.

Here are three signs indicating that you might be ready for a change:

You're Not Being Listened To

Your hairstylist should be your partner in achieving your dream hair. Whether it’s a bold cut, a fresh colour, or a specific style, your stylist should understand your vision and deliver the desired results. If you consistently find yourself dissatisfied, feeling that your stylist doesn’t grasp your expectations or struggles to bring your vision to life, it might be time for a new professional.

Lack Of Communication With Your Stylist

Effective communication forms the foundation of a successful hairstyling experience. A good stylist listens attentively to your ideas, offers insightful suggestions, and engages in meaningful consultations. Feeling misunderstood or hurried through consultations without adequate consideration for your preferences might signal a communication gap that needs addressing.

It's Not What You Want

As trends evolve, so should your stylist’s skills. A proficient stylist stays updated with the latest techniques and trends, offering a diverse range of styles suitable for different hair types. If you notice your stylist consistently sticking to a few repetitive styles, lacking versatility, or seemingly unaware of current trends, it might be a sign to explore new options.

Finding A New Hair Stylist

Recognising these signs is the first step towards finding the perfect hairstylist who can truly bring your hair aspirations to life. Here’s how you can navigate the process effectively:

Research And Reviews

Begin your search by exploring different hair stylists or salons in your area. Dive into online reviews, testimonials, and portfolios to gauge the expertise and satisfaction levels of previous clients. Positive feedback and a strong reputation often indicate a reliable and skilled professional.


Consultations are invaluable as they allow you to discuss your hair goals, assess  your preferences and evaluate any suggestions. A competent stylist will take the time to comprehend your needs and provide valuable insights tailored to you.

Express your Expectations

During your consultation, ask questions regarding your Stylists opinion. Try to be open minded and consider your lifestyle, likes and dislikes, styles which have worked for you in the past, things that you struggle with and anything else you consider helpful towards achieving a better haircut.

Embrace Change

Choosing a new hair stylist is a significant decision in your hair care journey. Recognising the signs that you’re ready for a change is pivotal in ensuring your hair remains healthy, stylish, and aligned with your preferences. Take the time to research, schedule consultations, and communicate your needs openly.

At our salon, we pride ourselves on understanding your unique preferences and delivering exceptional results. Book a consultation with us today and embark on a hair journey designed just for you.

Most clients when switching salon typically ‘try’ us by booking a haircut first. Visit our ladies haircutting service page or gents haircutting service page for more information.
