Don’t ignore the signs you should leave your beautician. Just like other professionals, they too can get off their game. Unfortunately, when they do, you are the one who suffers.
Sign #1: He’s always late.
Remember when your beautician used to be on time? At most, you had a ten-minute wait. Now, you spend more than an hour hoping to get a chair even when you make an appointment. Take the high road and go to someone new. Your beautician obviously has too many clients and can’t manage them properly. Pretty soon, he’ll be canceling your appointments or pushing you on someone else anyway.
Sign #2: He’s acting arrogant.
Unfortunately, beauticians often suffer from a big ego when they become popular. You will know that yours is falling into this trap when he starts becoming arrogant. He suddenly acts like a know-it-all and won’t listen to any of your requests. This kind of attitude is a sure sign you need to leave your beautician. Find someone else who still appreciates the art of hair styling without believing all of the hype.
Sign #3: He stops cleaning up.
When the shop that your beautician works in stops sparkling and you can see dust piling up, make an exit. Dirt and grime usually serves notice that other things aren’t be cleaned either like combs, brushes and other hair tools. As a result, you could get lice or bacteria. Both are bad news. Patronize a new beautician who works in a clean, hygienic shop.
Sign #4: He becomes stagnant.
A sign you should leave your beautician is that he is stagnant. He doesn’t go to any of the hair shows or take any classes to stay up-to-date. You can tell doing hair more of a job now than a passion. And, your hair doesn’t look good any more. Don’t waste any more money paying someone to make you look like your old aunt Bee. Go to someone new who is up on the latest trends.
Sign #5: You leave feeling sad.
Smart beauticians understand that people come to get their hair down for the experience. So, if your beautician is depressing with you sad stories or excessive criticism, move on. After spending a couple of hours at his shop, you should looking and feeling better. When this no longer is true, you don’t need to see him any more.
Ready to make a change? Reconsider going to your beautician if you see these signs. Getting your hair done should be a treat not an adventure in disaster.
