Why Should Men Visit A Professional Hair Salon Rather Than A Barber?

Many stylists base their career around the styling of men’s hair and there are a number of advantages for men who choose to visit a professional stylist rather than a barber.

Stylists have more experience with longer hair

Barbers will be very experienced with shorter, more traditional styles but if a man has longer hair then he will probably be better off visiting a stylist. Cutting longer hair on men is likely to need more tools than just a razor and the stylist will not only have access to these tools but will also be more experienced in using them.

Different techniques are also required to cut longer hair and it is likely that the stylist would be proficient in using these methods on a daily basis. With longer hair styles it may be necessary to use styling products and the stylist will have these products to hand when styling the hair and will be able to demonstrate to the client how to use them.

Stylists have more experience with coloured hair

Many men are now choosing to colour their hair and this is also something that a stylist will have more experience with. A man may choose to have a full head colour which changes the colour of all his hair, or just some highlights.

Whatever type of colouring work is being carried out, the client will need a skin test to ensure that he does not react to the hair colour and this is also something that the stylist will be able to carry out. The stylist will be able show the client the range of colours that they have available and help them choose one that will work well with their natural hair colour.

If a cut and colour is required then the stylist will be able to carry out both of these at the same time.

Stylists can create a new hair style

If a hair style is required that is very different to the one that the man already has then a stylist can help him choose this new style. They will be able to discuss the type of style that he is looking for and advise him about the particular styles that will suit his features.

A consultation can be provided by the stylist to talk through all the options and this is usually provided free of charge. The stylist may be able to provide photographs of styles that they have done on other men and this can help the client decide which type of style that they want to go for.

More and more men are choosing to visit a stylist over a barber when it is time for them to get their hair styled. While barbers offer more traditional cuts and styles, a stylist will have more experience in a wider range of styles, including longer hair styles and coloured hair.

If a man is looking for a completely new style then a MacGregor Hairdressing stylist will be able to offer advice about what sort of styles will suit him best.  Call today to book an appointment.
