When choosing a hair stylist, be sure to choose someone who is going to understand your needs. You have to be able to be honest with your hairstylist. You have to be able to tell them who you are, the look you want, the time, money, and energy you will be willing to spend. While you are sitting in a salon it can be difficult to not pretend that you have the means and time to wear the most stylish and up to date style.
Your hair stylist is not going to talk you into a cut that requires a lot of maintenance, product, or time, if you tell them that you want something easy and cheap. So, make sure you have a stylist you can trust. Make sure they have the experience and know your hair well enough to cut it where it is going to lay right, and look good, no matter what. If not it will take a lot of product and hair tools to have good hair. That is not something you want.
Your best bet for a hairstyle that is easy to do is to explain to your stylist what you need, the kind of time you have to do your hair each day, and what kind of care you can dedicate to it. For example, if you have short hair, you can do it faster, but if you do not need to wash your hair everyday, a longer cut is not going to be hard for you time wise. There are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to getting hair that is easy to do, so make sure you discuss it with your stylist. They are the professional, it is not your job to know the easiest cut; but you do know your lifestyle issues and personal preferences. So, explain those to your stylist and work with them to come up with the best style for your needs!
Besides getting the right stylist and the right cut, if you want to have hair that is easy to do, you have to learn your hair, and how to do it. Your hair will be really easy if you learn how it works best. For example, some people’s hair is best if they wash it everyday, other people’s hair is better off if you do not wash it often. Sometimes your hair works best if you wear it up, sometimes your hair is best if you wear it down.
Learn you hair, and find a style that works for you. Find a style that you like on you, and that does not take a lot of time. Find a style that you can dress up when you need to go out, or dress down when you are just lounging around.
