Did you just cut your hair yourself and and you’re sitting there thinking “wow, that was a stupid idea”? You are not alone as there are millions of people who find themselves in this kind of situation every day.
There are various reasons to this and these could range from wanting to cut the often high costs of hair treatment to simply wanting to try and test your ’artistic skills’. Well, as it were, the mere fact that you are not a hair specialist means things could go wrong and when they do, where do you find help? Read on to find out.
Look for a Barber Near You
A barber’s is basically a shop that deals in the cutting of hair as well as the dressing, grooming and styling of it. They traditionally specialize in men’s hair, though technology has revolutionized the industry and we now have barbers who deal with women’s hair as well.
Barber’s are located within convenient distances and unlike other hair shops, you will likely find one just within short distance of your home. They have different pricing plans based on the hair style you want to have and given that you tried to do their jobs behind their backs, you may be forced to cough up a little more than you would ordinarily have to.
A hair salon is a shop where you go to have your hair cut styled and possibly dyed. Unlike barber’s that mostly cater to men, hair salons cater to both men and women.
Most specialists working in these salons are female and among the tasks they are charged with are hairdressing, styling, shampooing and any other hair-related cosmetics. This means they have a rather higher pricing plans compared to barber’s because the level of hair cutting and treatment is pretty advanced.
A beauty parlor refers to an establishment where hairdressing and makeup as well as many other related cosmetic treatments are performed. One thing that sets these shops apart from salons and barber shops is that services are more personalized.
Basically, parlors give much importance to the convenience of their clients so once you check in, you may be treated to some niceties as you are prepared for your hair cut and treatment. There are beauty parlors that also have massage services, just so you can feel as comfortable as possible as they work on your hair.
Now, when you have cut your hair yourself but are unwilling to go get it fixed in any of the shops mentioned above, a hair clinic might be the only place left for you [and perhaps the most expensive too]. As the name suggests, hair clinics mainly deal with the medical aspects of your hair.
This means that after helping you get your hair cut and fixed, they will also apply some clinical treatments to it. Now, this is a good option, especially for those with falling hair and other hair conditions such as alopecia.
