I  am wondering if I am just a picky annoying client but I have found to have 2 horrible experiences with hairdresser in the Caribbean. 

I went to hairdressers on two occassions for weaves and have found them to be very lazy and unprofessional. I chose those particular salons b/c they are rated as the best on the island because these stylists travel abroad for training. 

I am not expecting to have my usual NYC weave but I was extremely disappointed in not only the results but the attitudes of the stylists. Number one; they do not listen and are offended when you ask questions.  I usually reuse my wagmans hair which the wefts are sealed. They were both annoyed that they had to reinsall hair that was use. They were terrible with the blending on top. I asked the first hairdresser how she was gonna track the hair and she said, 'relax, let me track it my way'. She would cut a piece of the weave hair to use to braid after I told her not to. Then I asked her to bend the tracks instead of cutting them even more and she did not listen. She said I was difficult

The second stylist seemed upset that it took her unusually long to install the hair. The salon is listed as being closed at 7 and she started complaining at 5?! Is it my fault that she did not know how to install that type of hair. I was the one threading the needle (which I had to buy on my way there) and also I was handing her the hair to place the tracks....


I am just wondering if I am high mainainence.....what are your expectations from you stylist?

When I went to the carib, the weaves didn't look good on anyone. My expectations wouldn't have been high.

These O's here suck at hair. I am trying one more shop before I give up...

I wish I could find a stylist who would just be gentle with my hair. I can comb through my hair with a fine tooth comb without causing any breakage or have to yank my head all around.

That's what they need to teach in beauty school...how to comb and part gently.

I rather not do my hair in Jamaica! they like to cut corners. the braid is usually big for weaves and it just does not come out looking good.  It never looks polished and perfect as when I do at my own salon in Canada.  Mind you I went to so called upscale salons that were expensive.

@maysay: IA.

Patient & gentle, is mainly what I want. Ask what I'm looking for: Healthier hair, stylish looking hair or both. Explain what you can do with my hair before you start styling it so I don't walk away angry. Know something about hair so you can explain it to me so I don't return to your chair in a few weeks with H.A.M damaged hair.

I only had one stylist like this and she was great.

To know what they're doing basically..
 
The person that straightened my hair had no clue how to wash and detangle my hair. I should have stuck with no and went to the natural hair salon I wanted to go to, but all of them pretty much corned me.
 
It looked good..never again tho
