Why do salons use a pic. of curly and straight as before and after?

ForestforeverForestforever Posts: 1Registered Users
What happened to all types of hair being ok. it seems like this lank straight look is lasting a long time, and salons use a picture of a normal looking woman with lovely natural curly hair as a "before" picture! then straight hair as the after picture? not to be critical but there is an ad on this site for straight hair shampoo and conditioner, is this a reflection of society at this time, uptight, narrow minded, like how skirt lengths show how society is feeling? Gooday all.:blah5:

    Non-straight hair is known to be a deviance in many societies. It'll take a long time before it'll be just as 100% accepted as straight hair is. :sad3: I say, be patient, my dear, our time shall come!

    Meanwhile, I'm going to wear my curls with pride. If that makes me a rebel, then go ahead; being bad feels good, anyway. :laughing2:

    salons use a picture of a normal looking woman with lovely natural curly hair as a "before" picture!

    I have to say that in all the "before" pictures I've seen, the curly hair never looks beautiful, it always looks wild and frizzy and unruly/unkempt.
    I mean, I don't find unruly hair ugly, because mine is very often unruly, but what I'm saying is, the before pictures are rarely gorgeous, glossy, perfect natural curls. Sometimes the "after" pics are.
    That's me with FSG as my styler!!

    3b. fine & thick, coarse, dry, medium porosity. Sucks up product and loves ACVs! FSG is my HG!

    Low Poo: TJ's Refresh No Poo: CoWash w/VO-5; Sonoma Soap Company sulfate-free poo
    RO: Yes to Cuc; SSC Lavender Condish; Sally GVP LI: Donna Marie Miracle D&C
    Style: FSG w/Aussie Instant Freeze & CIAB

    I think it's because it's the easiest "change" a salon can do to a client.

    In other words, "laziness."

    some people think Kobe sucks, some people think United States is a terrible country, some people think we should not fund NASA, some people like bananas and some people like apples..

    No need to get hurt or annoyed, because everybody has their own personal opinion.

    I agree with ninja dog. I think it's laziness, and lack of knowledge on styling options for curly hair other than straightening.
