Have you ever been in a beauty predicament that had you feeling uncomfortable? I can’t count on one hand the amount of times I sat in the salon chair feeling irritable, agitated and in slight pain. While I longed to let my salon technician know that it may be time to turn down the heat or lower the impact on the massage chair, a part of me felt my interruption would present an awkward moment where I came off as rude, and perhaps a bit cocky. The beautician is the expert right? The truth is when you’re uncomfortable at the salon the biggest disservice you can do for yourself is to say nothing. If you can’t find the courage to speak up, here are a few tips on how to politely prevent another uncomfortable beauty moment.

Communicate your preferences ahead of time.

There is nothing wrong with addressing your concerns prior to booking your appointment. If you are prone to back pain and soreness, you don’t want your masseuse to be heavy handed. If you address this concern earlier in the process they will make sure, they schedule you with the right masseuse for the job.

    OMG, I can’t remember how many times in the past I felt bad for asking the stylist to turn off the dryer, use a different comb. But the point that was made is true–you are the customer, and you should be happy. Not uncomfortable. But what about when everything is wrong all at once(music too loud/offensive, stylist hurting you, left under the dryer too long, dirty looking comb, etc) and it’s too far into the process to walk out (like middle of a deep conditioning)? How do you keep from sounding like a diva/complainer?
