Ask for clarification. Salonspeak is an imprecise dialect. If a stylist says he plans to "give your hair more bounce" or "add movement," request a translation. Does he want to cut more layers? Create bangs? And avoid talking in measurements. "The stylist's version of three inches could be six in your mind," says John Barrett. "Ask him to show you where your longest layers will be—your collarbone? Shoulders? Chin?"
