Breanna Rutter


Melanie asked this question because she has a hard time doing her own hair and its better for her to let someone else do it but how should she go about finding a good hairstylist.


  1. Do you have a cosmetology license?

  2. What kind of sewing thread do you use when sewing extensions?

  3. Do you have pictures of your work?

  4. How do I take care and maintain my real hair and the look of this style?

  5. What books do you recommend for helping me take care of my hair?


(If they can’t recommend any, it’s a good chance they may not have furthered their hair knowledge.) Know that a good professional stylist will not have much time outside of doing hair so a pro usually needs to charge your for a consultation.


A consultation is meant to address your concerns and hair needs. Pay attention to see if they are patient and willing to truly help you and if they give you a hard time move on to someone else. A good hairstylist you can trust will save you time, money, and give you healthy hair in the long run.
