Is it a haircut or a trim?

Once and for all let’s just get on the same page and admit these are one in the same! No matter what you want to call it, we are still cutting all the hairs, it takes the same amount of time, uses the same techniques and they cost the same no matter what you call it.

Now the amount of hair to be taken off should be discussed before anyone picks up the scissors! Do you like the length and just want to clean up the ends before they split? That could be an inch or less determined by the stylist’s evaluation. If you like the style but want it lighter, more than an inch could be necessary.

Bring pictures if you are thinking of a completely different style. Pictures are very helpful for your stylist to see exactly what you are wanting (or trying to avoid). Also consider what the maintenance of your requests will be. Your stylist should be able to advise you based on your lifestyle and desired level of maintenance.

If you or your stylist are unsure, it may be a good idea to reschedule when you have made clear decisions about the request you will make of your stylist. Still unsure? We offer complimentary consultations for all hair cutting services. Reservations available online at patinahairstudio.com.
