Frequently Asked Questions

What training is required to become a licensed hairstylist?

Hairstylists need to successfully complete a hair styling or cosmetology program that's approved by their state's cosmetology board. Additionally, they're required to apply for licensing from this board and depending on the state's regulations, they may need to pass a licensing exam before their license is issued.

How can you accurately explain the haircut or color that you\'d like to the hairstylist?

When visiting the hair salon, the best way to convey the style or cut you'd like is to bring photos of the style you desire. Without photos, you may run the risk of having your stylist misunderstand the look you want, and in most cases, it can be difficult — or even impossible — to correct hair that's already been cut.

As a hairstylist, what is the biggest mistake you see people with curly hair make?

Most hairstylists who work with curly hair agree that there are several big mistakes commonly made by people who have curly hair, including shampooing too often, drying with terry cloth towels, and using brushes that aren't designed for curly hair. Additionally, not conditioning enough is a common mistake that leads to frizzy, damaged hair.
