Choosing a good hair salon is as difficult as finding a new job. Only some understand what our hair needs and what type of styling will suit us the best. Finding a salon is easy but finding a good one is surely a challenge. When it comes to keeping your hair in excellent condition, you may be surprised that a regular salon appointment is the key. So many people do not know of all the benefits there are to visit a hair salon regularly. We have listed below some points how to find a good hair salon for you.



Consider the type of Hair Stylist you are Seeking

If you have a special hair type, such as curly, short, or African American, then you will want to find a hair stylist who is experienced with this hair type. Keep this in mind when you seek a hair salon. You may even consider looking for the right hair stylist and then evaluating the salon.
If you find a salon you like or have a couple of salons you are considering, then whether or not there is a stylist who is experienced with your hair type can help you to make your decision.

For example, if a salon you are considering has no one who specializes in short hair and you like to keep your hair cut short, then this salon may not be the best choice for you.

Find the Hairstylist

Search online for local Hair salons and Hair stylists

You probably want to find a salon that is not too far from where you live or work so that it will be convenient for you. Search for salons in your area to get a list going.

For example, you can open Google search and plug in the phrase “salons near me” or “salons” and the city you live in.

This will generate a list of all of the salons in your area.
Keep the type of stylist you are seeking in mind as you search. You might even plug some key terms into your search to find a stylist who meets your specifications, such as “short hair” or “hair extensions.”

You can also use hashtags on social media to help you find and view work from stylists in your area. For example, using #hairsalonsinpretotria will lead you to profiles and pictures from colorists all over South Africa

One of the simplest and easiest ways to get extra-long braids is with the crochet technique. Similar to a weave, crochet involves first braiding your hair into loose cornrows. This cornrow pattern forms the foundation for your crochet braids. Next, hair extensions are threaded through and secured using a crochet hook before being plaited into your braid style of choice. You can also have ready-made braids secured, such as box braids which dramatically cut the time it takes to put in your braids.

5.  Fishtail Braid Hairs

A festival classic, the fishtail braid brings a touch of boho to any look. It’s one of the simplest braids to create because it doesn’t involve a complicated pattern. However, you will need to separate your hair into small sections – about half an inch – and keep the tension throughout the braid to avoid it falling apart. You can begin the fishtail at any point on your head, using a French or Dutch braiding technique, which means it will work on short hair as well as long. A double fishtail is also a great way to wear this look.
