Have you ever thought about the idea of a “team” when looking for a salon or stylist? Whether it is for beauty services or hair loss services, most women today find one stylist and become so comfortable with that stylist that you may not even realize what you may be missing out on from a salon with a team-based culture.

A salon with a team-based culture is made up of individuals who work together with one goal in mind- YOU! Communication is key to a team-based culture. That team makes notes after each appointment about changes to your color formulas or cut, your specific likes or dislikes. This is important so that at any given time any member of the styling team could do your services and you still have the confidence that they will deliver with the same excellence as your preferred stylist.

Ask Jeffrey: “What to Ask When Searching for a Hair Loss Specialist”


“Jeffrey, I have begun losing my hair and am unsure about what to ask my stylist or a hair loss specialist in order to find someone who is going to do a good job recommending a solution. What questions should I be asking?” ~ Alicia P.

When a woman begins experiencing hair loss and thinning it can be an experience with a lot of unanswered questions. What do I do? What can I do? Is there a solution for me?

Talking to your stylist is a big step, and one I want you to make as part of your New Year’s resolution. You may be embarrassed, you may want to hide your thinning and loss, but your stylist is there to help. Here are some questions to ask your stylist, or a hair loss specialist, and what responses you would want to receive.

1.   Do you specialize in women’s hair loss issues? Can I talk to one or two of your clients who had similar circumstances to mine.

  • Good answers: Yes, or, mostly. Of course, we can arrange that, and maybe you can even meet one of them, who was happy with our work – have a look at the solution she selected! 

2.   How long have you been doing this?
