First impressions are everything, especially as we head back to the office after lockdowns. Where can you get the best men’s haircut in Edmonton?
Start with a recommendation.
Ask a friend or coworker where they get a men’s haircut in Edmonton. If you see a great-looking haircut, even on a stranger, ASK them where they got it. The Edge Style Council offers skilled technicians and a good track record, since 1990!
If you are looking online, look for a salon or stylist with good reviews. If someone takes time out of their day to give a good review, it means something.
Book an appointment.
Look for a stylist who provides scheduled appointments. It is a good indicator that they are in demand AND that they have enough time blocked off to give you the BEST men’s haircut. At The Edge Style Council, you can shoot us a quick email and we will get you scheduled for the best men’s haircut in Edmonton!
OK, you’re in the chair… now what?
COMMUNICATION is key!
Communicating the haircut you are looking for can be as simple as providing a couple of pictures but remember, this is a starting point. A skilled barber will use your photos as a jump-off point and customize your final look to suit your face shape, hair texture, personal style, schedule, and lifestyle. Instagram or Pinterest is a great place to start but also consider a selfie, taken when you liked your hair the most.
DON’T FOCUS ON THE NAMES OF HAIRCUTS
Sometimes the cut you want doesn’t have a name, and sometimes a crew cut for one stylist is an Ivy League for another. A fade and a taper are often interchanged and are actually very different men’s haircuts. Your professional barber or stylist should be able to determine what it is you want through conversation.
DON’T FOCUS TOO MUCH ON GUARD NUMBERS OR THE LENGTH OF YOUR HAIRCUT
A trained professional should be able to determine the desired length of your men’s haircut based on the pictures you provided and your hair type.
PARTICIPATE IN THE CONVERSATION
Along with the face shape, texture and thickness of your hair, a professional stylist or barber will consider your life and personal style.
- Are you willing to blow dry every morning?
- Will you use multiple products?
- Will you use ANY products?
- How often are you willing to get your haircut?
If your stylist isn’t asking questions and trying to determine your lifestyle you are in the wrong chair.
If you don’t want to spend more than five minutes styling your hair, make sure you tell them. If you will only use one product, make sure they know that as well.
