Any hairdresser who
finds themselves here, take note that this issue rates very highly
on the list of reasons why clients hate going to salons!
It's actually really important to
be comfortable, not just to make sure that your salon visit is
the time-out experience in pampering that you would like, but
to ensure that you don't end up with a more serious problem than
a just sore neck.
The basin is the worse culprit. The
trick is to not have your neck baring all of the weight. Make
sure your hairdresser practices the following, if not, ask them
- Your chair should support the
weight somewhere across your mid back. If this isn't the case
your chair is either too close or too far away from the basin.
- If the chair is not the type that
you can move then alter your position or raise your feet, many
salons have a footstool just for this specific purpose.
- There should be a soft sponge
for your neck to rest on, if not, ask the hairdresser as they
often slip off.
- Finally don't use your towel to
cushion your neck, not only does this not work, but you will
find that the water will soak into it and then onto your clothes.
- The main cutting chair is normally
very comfortable but if it is not then let the hairdresser know.
