How a Salon Visit Can Boost Your Self-Confidence

It Starts With One Trip To The Salon.

Part of what gives you confidence is your look. We don’t mean this in a superficial way, we are not saying you can only be confident if you look “good.” Every single person in this world has beauty to them and everyone perceives beauty differently and those perceptions and views often change and cycle throughout time. So, you can’t say looking “good” or being “attractive” is what will give you self-confidence, not exactly. Confident people are comfortable with how they look and how they are perceived. When you feel like your look matches your personality and you are accurately perceived by others as to who you are as an individual. Then you start building that self-confidence. Part of this is getting the haircut or hairstyle that you want.

Our hairstylists can do so much more than just give you a haircut. Our stylists are focused on you, our client. We listen to you and talk with you to figure out what you want. If you want advice or overall style consultation, we can help you there too, no extra charge. Our hair stylists are highly trained and we continue education continuously with all of our stylists. What makes our hair salon and stylists different is how we connect with our clients. Our hair stylists understand that listening to you is the most important part of getting you the haircut and hairstyle that you want.

Get what you want. You work hard for your money, so when you spend it on a service, whoever is giving you that service owes you, exactly what you want. Everyone has had a bad haircut or haircut experience. A time when the stylist clearly wasn’t listening to what you asked for and gave you whatever cut they felt like. The focus of the stylists at our salons is on the client, on listening to the client, on making a connection with our clients so we can better understand who you are and can therefor give you what you want.

When your confidence is up, you are riding high everything in your life, like magic, starts to improve. Even if you are feeling good you can always improve your life, you can always feel better. If you aren’t happy building up self-confidence is the first step to changing everything in your life. Imagine yourself in an ideal world, how do you look in your fantasy. When the way you look, and are perceived matches who you are then you got it.

star_ratingstar_ratingstar_ratingstar_ratingstar_rating“I just moved to the area three months ago so my only reference for hair salons was the online reviews. There were two salons that I was considering and unfortunately I did not choose In Style. I had my hair cut and styled at “the other” salon and I was extremely disappointed. The style did nothing for me. Two days after getting it cut I made an appointment with Maria at In Style. OMG.. What a difference!! Maria gave me a great cut and I even decided to have her do highlights the same day. I love my cut and highlights and so does my husband! Thank you Maria!!!” 7/16/16
