Before I go into the points to help you choose your hairdresser, I should first outline the definition of what is a mobile hairdresser? A Mobile Hairdresser is a hairdresser who usually works for his or herself visiting clients at their homes or place of work, or any other agreed venue and does not operate from a fixed hair salon or beauty shop.

1.When to consider using a mobile hairdresser. The services of a mobile hairstylist may often be required to be used at a home for a wedding when it may often be inconvenient for the bride to travel to a hair or beauty salon to have her hair and her make-up done, requiring her then to travel back to her home to put on her wedding gown. Instead, the hairdresser will travel to the bride’s home in order to style the bride’s hair for her special day.

Become a Hairdresser

A hairdresser does much more than cut hair. If a hairdresser is not in tune with her customers, it will be difficult, if not impossible, for her to fully perform the duties of her job. There is quite a bit that goes into being an effective hairdresser, and one does not want to come up short.

If you go into the job thinking all you need is a pair of scissors and a blow dryer, you will be in for quite a surprise. In reality, that is such a small part of what you need to do. People expect a lot of things from their hairdresser, and you do not want to disappoint them.

Always Have a Good Hairdresser

Leigh Welch

A GOOD HAIRDRESSER is and always will be a necessity, if you can find one. The importance of a hairdresser in designing a hairdo cannot be overstressed. A hairdresser’s technical knowledge of hair and its ability to retain certain lines and shapes permits him to diagnose and arbitrate with his customer so that she can get a hairdo that is pleasing to her and will involve a minimum of care and upkeep.

A hairdresser who has artistic ability and a thorough working knowledge of illusion and proportion, plus the mechanical abilities of hair cutting, waving and pin-curling, can make any hairdo look well on the wearer by giving it the correct amount of width or height or whatever is necessary.

A hairdo that needs minimum care is always essential. The only time this rule is ignored is when a woman’s profession makes it desirable-for example, actresses who will wear their hair in certain ways for a particular part because of the costume or period. Even if this requires a daily trip to the hairdresser’s, it has got to be done, the amount of time or money involved being of secondary importance. The average everyday woman does not have this problem.

Your problem is to find out whether the hairdressers available in your community are (a) good ones or (b) right for you.
