It’s not only the Middleton sisters that have been spotted at the Rossano Ferretti Hairspa, but Hollywood’s elite – from Jennifer Lawrence to Reese Witherspoon – swishing their healthy, wealthy-looking locks as they leave. To get world-class quality from your cut, the man behind the luxury salon chain and high-performance product range highlights the mistakes you might be making in the hairstylist’s chair. Avoid these at your next appointment…

1. Asking for something that’s not appropriate for your hair type

“Women should focus on unique beauty and their daily routine. And make sure to have time for a real consultation with their stylist.”

2. Not considering your daily lifestyle when choosing your haircut

“That is a key point and it’s a definite must to respect the hair. It’s not only respect of its texture and its natural movement but also respect in terms of what a woman does every day and how she likes to wear her hair. Creating a tailor-made made cut means freedom of daily choice to every client.”

3. Not referencing images to your hairstylist

“We have our Rossano Ferretti Book and which is part of the consultation moment; the purpose is not to copy a style or a cut, but women use a different language to the specific and technical language of hairstylists. Images always help the stylist to better understand what a woman is asking for.”

4. Focusing too much on your face shape

“It’s an important part but every hairstyle must be in harmony with the person in general, not just their face shape.”

5. Not mentioning previous cut and colour problems

“A good and proper communication between stylist and clients is crucial to help to keep their relationship alive. In our clientele journey guide, we have a proper section dedicated to each client and their hair journey in our salons and part of that is a consultation which is absolutely key to us.”

6. Having a fringe cut without seeking advice

“There are some specific situations where a fringe is not recommended. Mostly, with a small forehead where the hairline and eyebrows are close together. Another situation is with curly hair or when the hairline texture makes a natural hair separation because in this case the daily maintenance would be very difficult.”
