What is the most frequent statement we hear from our clients? I want volume in the crown! So how do we go about establishing just how much volume to create for them? Too little volume and the profile is all face to much volume and the profile is all hair.
Lets first discuss how to measure the amount of volume to place in the crown that will be proportioned to the clients face in a profile for a blow dry:
Cool, huh? The coolest element about this part of the client consultation is that your client gets this big ah ha moment with you! You not only handed the client the mirror to follow you, you also created the opportunity to express how knowledgeable you are as a stylist.
This just scored you massive points as now the client really trusts and respects you! You just may hear, wow, no one has ever taken the time to show or even discuss this with me - do whatever you feel will look the best on me! Is that music to our ears or what?
Now that you have wowed her, here is another tip to earn even more respect with her by simply establishing how long to leave the crown area when cutting:
This is extremely important why? Because she is most likely used to using one brush when she goes to blow dry her crown area and you want to make it as easy as possible for her to recreate the look you give her at home.
She wants her hair to look as close as possible to the finish you gave her, everyday, so YOU want to be sure you do not cut the crown too short or leave it too long:
All of this adds value to your clients appointment. You want to establish respect, trust and credibility with every client during every appointment. The more knowledge you share with your client the more she will want to come back and refer her friends and family.
Teach them well and in turn you will give them the confidence to succeed at home in between appointments they become free advertisement for you, as they are able to make your cut and style look good every day!
