Post by Chantelle How to get what you want Lately at Sin 7 Salon, I've been witnessing a few too many misbookings, and I think it stems from a general confusion about what exactly it is a client may want. Completely understandable! Before I became a hairstylist, I had absolutely no idea what the difference between a retouch and a foil was, and wasn't even sure if a haircut included a style and wash. I'm here to help you understand the differences, and in the process, get you to know how to say EXACTLY what you want when it comes to your hair. So you have grey hair. More than a little grey hair too. And you don't want to see it anymore, not even a little. There are a few things you can book yourself in for.
