This new study says hair stylists offer advice and counsel to clients. And they came to the revelation that the longer stylists worked with clients, the closer their relationships became. "Almost two-thirds said they would refer older clients to a mental health expert if necessary, but some said they didn't know much about such services in their community," says the LA Times. We all need to be aware of social services in our area or at least know how to find them.
There have been so many times I have given clients advice. Sometimes they take and sometimes not, but it's important to try. Plus, it shows you as a stylist that you aren't just talking about yourself the entire haircut.
