Popping to the salon is generally an appointment you make so that you can wind down, do some self-care and feel at ease.
But what if the person taking care of your locks didn’t feel the same way? That would be pretty dire indeed.
Well, one hairdresser isn’t worried about the flack she might get for talking about her hair ‘icks’ and is very public about it.
If anything, she’s actually saving a lot of people from embarrassing habits when they venture to their local hair salon.
Emily Pytel, hairdresser and TikToker, has amassed hundreds of thousands of views for her video which provides women with a lot of tips regarding the dos and don’ts of hairdressing etiquette.
Of course, coming in with your hair quite dirty is an obvious one, but if you’re there for a deep scrub, why not?
“When a client comes to me with super dirty hair, just no,” Emily said in her video, which was first posted earlier this year.
“We don’t want to touch your dirty hair but it’s also not good for your colour, it doesn’t take as well."
Another gripe she had was when customers give her extended eye contact.
Apparently, having customers ‘look her in the eyes’ when they put their heads over the bowl during the shampooing process isn’t great. I can see how that would be icky.
She warned: “Don’t do that. It is awkward for everybody. Just close your eyes.”
It was the third ick which really took the cake as it ‘really gets her’.
She said: “When you show up late but you have a coffee in your hand and don’t have one for us. We love coffee too and we need the caffeine to do your hair.”
To be honest, it’s not really that respectful to nip to Starbucks and flaunt it as you walk in late.
And another one: “When you are in our chair and we turn our chair and the head looks back at the mirror, please don’t do that because there is a reason we are turning your chair.”
I mean… I feel attacked now.
Of course, those who watched the video were shocked about what hairdressers actually think, especially regarding the dirty hair fiasco.
Emily even appeared on Daily Blast Live and took heat from another guest about her 'dirty hair' comment, so it's unsurprising that her viewers were also shook.
One person typed: “Waitttttt I was always told to get your hair coloured with dirty hair??”
Another hairdresser in the comment said: “People take it to the extreme though, if your hair stinks and your scalp is itching from being dirty, please don’t come to the salon that way.”
One woman admitted to her bad habits: “I am definitely guilty of the dirty hair.”
To which Emily replied and it’s presumed she is a regular: “Nooooo your hair is never bad at all!!!! I’m talking about SUPER dirty hair!!”
However, one commenter shared: “This is why I colour my own hair. I don’t want to get judged for doing something wrong lol.”
But the hairdresser was wanted to ensure that everyone know the video was only to ‘educate’ viewers while asking in the comments: “Is anyone guilty of these?”Featured Image Credit: TikTok/@emilyyyroses
