You decide it's time for a change so you pluck up the courage and ask your favourite stylist for advice. Do you perhaps sometimes feel that you are in a competition for who is going to blink first?
Understand one thing here "It's just as scary for them as it is for you"
Often clients will say to me "I would not want to be you, what do you do if they don't like it?"
And the bad news is it does not get any easier even after 45 years of cutting hair. And by that I mean the fear of the customer not liking your creation is always there. If the stylist does not have that fear then you are potentially really in trouble.
It all starts with a good consultation and really seeing the client "not just looking"
do they have?
A square jaw
You get the picture?
But after a while it's easy to become complacent and by the way that's both you and the stylist. You can end up disappearing under your hair, so you are growing it! that does not mean looking awful for 3 years and if your stylist tells you something like eventually you will get there. Then guess what? "Change your hairdresser"
However it's all about expectations and managing them, but also seeing potential and supporting a client all the way in making a change. you would be surprised what a transformation a restyle can have, in looks and confidence and remember my motto is " your hair should suit you not us"

What makes a great salon visit?
Good question and the answer may be different each time. At our salon in Bloomsbury we aim for good customer service and consistent standards. My goal would be that when the client walks in the door we make her feel as if she is at home. The friendliness has to be genuine, because people are not stupid and they can see right through you game face. We start any appointment with a consultation where we find out what your goals are and make suggestions. It's a good idea to have a visual on your phone as it gives us a basis to work on.If you are concerned about either the condition of your hair or scalp we will generate an energy code at the same time. We want your salon experience to be a good one, and that's why we guarantee our work. If you would like a free consultation give us a call

CV Hair & Beauty are proud brand ambassadors for Wella, we are really excited to be offering energy code consultations at our Bloomsbury salon. So what is an energy code?
To recalibrate the hair’s natural lipid layer, System Professionals’s scientists developed and patented the EnergyCode™ technology: based on a complex of carefully balanced ingredients in specifically targeted concentrations throughout the System Professional range, so that the personal Care System recommended by the Hair Care Consultant transforms each unique hair energy. The secret of transforming hair towards ideal hair is decoded – the hair energy is reborn.
Oleic Acid and Glyceryl Monooleate help to maintain the structural integrity of hair
through re-inforcing and replenishing the cell cement in the hair.
Works in two ways on the hair: It repairs and replenishes the natural protein structure
of the hair and helps protect against the damage caused by free radicals.
Increases the blood circulation and keeps the root of the hair energized
VITAMIN B3 AMIDE
Enhances the moisture balance in the scalp and contributes to strong healthy hair growth, full of energy.
Hair full of energy, responsive and manageable.
Hair is less static and frizzy but has more shine and bounciness.
