Should I go to this stylist?

Hi Ladies,

Should I let a new stylist use permanent color all over my hair as a base color or should she be using a lesser damaging demi? I've been told in the past never to put permanent dye on the bottom half of your hair, is that true?

Should I tell her what I think and want or just trust that she knows what she's doing?

Thanks and btw, my appt. with her is today at 3, I've been debating wether or not to cancel, I had a consultation with her yesterday.

    Definitely speak up and tell any stylist what you think and want. Never blindly trust one. At least you had a consultation. Now, go with your gut based on how you felt about her and her knowledge after that.

    Any of them will tell you they're curly experts, color experts, etc., but it ain't necessarily so!

    See if you can find some on-line reviews and see what past customers have to say: Kudzu.com, Citysearch.com, Angieslist.com (have to pay to join), this site - there are lots of others.

    If you don't find anything at any of these, try just entering "hair stylist reviews" and your city in a search engine (I like dogpile.com) and see if you come up with anything.
