Come, come closer. Have you heard? James Pryce, the royal hairdresser who’s in charge of the Duchess of Cambridge’s hair has been fired. Apparently, the hair maven has been posting personal pictures of Kate Middleton’s hair on her Facebook page that she no longer wants him on the job.

Now, we may not be royalty, but we definitely have to have some standards when it comes to picking a hairstylist. A good hairstylist is like your beauty spouse who will go through good and bad times (of your hair) with you. Here are tips to finding a great hairstylist (if you’re not committed to any one yet, have just “broke up” with one, and are looking for one).

Tip #1: Get referrals

Is there a friend whose hair always look impeccable? Ask her for a referral. Through her experience, you’d be able to tell if the hairstylist is right for you. What’s more, knowing you’ve been referred by a long-time customer would mean that the hairstylist can build rapport with you faster, and is more eager to please you.

Tip #2: Shop around

Like how you have to kiss many frogs before you find your prince, you probably need to try out at different salons to settle on the hairstylist you want. Meet up with everyone you received a good reference for, go with an open mind, and wait for one of them to impress you.

Tip #3: Comfort is key

Do you enjoy your time spent at the salon? Is it convenient for you to get there? Is conversation (or non-conversation, if he/she is quiet) with your hairstylist comfortable? Considering you’re going to spend quite a lot of time per session at your salon and periodically return for consultation, touch up or trimming, you have to make sure that you actually like the place and people enough to make your life better for you.

Tip #4: Chemistry and communication

Do you find it easy to communicate to your hairstylist either because of common language or chemistry? Is he/she able to understand your inspirations and concerns? Being able to communicate effectively with your personal hairstylist is definitely going to make sure your hair turns out to be what you want and better at every visit. No more post-hairstyling regrets.
