Just as it can damage skin, the sun can also damage hair. Suggest that your clients wear a scarf over their hair to help protect it from the sun. If a client comes in for an up-do for an outdoor wedding or special event, propose pulling the hair into a classic chignon and wrap it with a scarf–this looks chic and keeps hair healthy. For a day in the sun, advise your clients to wear hats or keep their hair up, to prevent and minimize damage to the hair. Plus, wearing a hat will protect your skin–it’s a win-win!
Everyone wants happy clients- that means letting them know when NOT to get a cut. If you want a happy client- and a returning client, encourage those with coarse or curly hair to wait for those bangs until after the threat of summer humidity is over. “The ‘boing’-or shrink up factor- is just too great!” Persuade your coarse and curly haired clients to keep their bangs longer during the summer- this will look sleeker and allow the client to sweep them to the side.
