if i want a specific hairstyle, can i bring in a photo to show the hairdresser?

i dont get haircuts very often so i dont really know how the whole thing works.

but i want a specific hairstyle for a change and would it be okay if i brough in a photo of what i want my hair to look like so the hairdresser can copy it?

would it be weird if i did?

    No its not weird at all in fact its probably the best thing you can do because then you make it clear on the style you would like and then there shouldnt be any dissapointing mistakes.
    so dont worry remember the customer is always right 😉 hehe

    it is ok to take photos in. i have done it and my hairdresser said that she preferred me to take one in because it was easier for her instead of me trying to describe it.

    haha I’ve brung a photo in too my hairdresser and she was fine with it’s perfectly fine if a guy wants to bring in a photo in to show your hairdresser what it looks like it’s waaay easier then describing it

    Yeah, you can do that. The hairdresser usually is happier if they have a perspective of what you want done with your hair. Doing that shouldn’t offend them, unless they’re a psycho. 😀 Anway, go for it.

    As long as it’s a realistic cut, not to crazy.
    The person who is Haircutting might charge extra as well so watch out!

    Yes, definetly. I always do it now, they even recommend it to me. It makes sure they do what you want so you’ll both be happy. :]

    yes its good to do!
    my hairdresser said she preferred it as she knew exactly what i was after. if i don’t bring one and im wanting something other than a trim she insists on me looking through hair magazines to find something that im after!

    take the picture!

    You know, I brought in a picture of an Anime cartoon character once, and she did it exactly!
    No, it’s not weird! You’d have better luck at getting what you want if you did. Now, whether or not it’s something that would work with your hair type… but if you brought in a picture, your hairdresser would be better able to advise you..

    Hairdessors tell me they often get people taking photos in, so don’t worry about taking one. The hairdessors usually have photos in books of haircuts they show to people to find a cut they like. So you taking a photo takes the guess work out for them. It shows you’ve also done your homework. Sometimes, just beware, hairdressors aren’t magicians and some styles don’t work on everyone. Also it is hard to get styles perfectly the same as you may have a different hair type to the person in the photo. They will try to match it the best, however, and let you know upfront if the style suits you. Great to see that you are raking the plunge of exploring new styles considering you don’t get a cut often. Find a good hairdressor and good luck.Hope the new style makes you happy
