A hairdresser also needs to work with a client on how they can best manage their hair at home in a way that supports their time, effort, and aesthetic preferences. To that point, most clients will largely continue to do what they have always done. It is a hairdressers job to discover clients daily routine and work with it. Believing that a client will perfectly follow salon instructions will often lead to their disappointment in the end. The cut needs to support how a client lives with their hair, and not how a hairdresser hopes they do.
The best approach to assist clients in being happy at home is to discuss with them various methods, and with effective communication, determine together what will best suit their needs. Not all individuals with curly hair have a desire or time to invest in a particular method or a consistent daily ritual. The solution for many is a desire for a method that will yield the greatest and most reliable results with the least amount of effort. A hairdresser can and should educate, yet it is entirely a client decision to choose what is best for themselves. The rest comes down to a professional's skills with the scissors. A great cut is a foundation and often, it can provide the motivation for a client to start engaging with their hair in a manner that yields positive results, compliments, and smiles - naturally.
