12 Things All Hairstylists Can Relate To


Being a hairstylist isn't all perfect lobs and #mermaidhair - sometimes a client with box-dyed black hair wants to go platinum blonde in one session, or you find yourself falling asleep at 8pm on a Saturday after a full day of back-to-back clients. But on those days when everything just clicks - when the color correction goes perfectly, you get to try out a totally new style on a longtime client, and a new guest leaves with a huge smile - those are the days that you know you wouldn't have it any other way!

Below, check out our list of 12 things every stylist can relate to - the good, the bad, and the bleach stained!

1. Having an arsenal of small talk topics that can go on for hours
