When showing your stylist an inspiration pic 📸 take a look at the base/natural color of the person in the pic. If her hair is naturally light and yours is naturally dark then your already working against yourself. My advice is to look for pictures that are closer to the hair YOU already have. If your hair is curly and you wear it curly most of the time then it's probably best if you don't show pics of girls with silky straight hair. If your hair is short don't show pics of girls with long luxurious hair...if your hair is thin....you get the idea 💡. Have realistic expectations not only for yourself but also for the stylist. Of course we want you to be happy 😊, of course we want to make your black hair blonde in one 2 hour session 😂😂. The integrity of your hair should be your first priority....NOT the color of it. Most things can be achieved with time, patience, understanding, and of course 💰💰💰.
