I love looking on instagram for stylists! Personally, I will drive far for a good cut or color because I think it’s worth it. I personally wouldn’t do an ulta, unless you can see some of their stylist’s work ahead of time, because I would worry it won’t be what you want.

Also, I think its important to communicate if you are unhappy. If you never give feedback, your current stylist probably has no clue that you are unhappy. It might be worth one last chance, and really communicate if you are unhappy, want something changed, etc. I have been going to the same colorist now for like 10 years, but there have definitely been times that I have gone back after a week and just said “I am not loving this. Here’s what I want to change.”. Cut is a bit different than color, in the sense that you can’t add more length back in, but you could still go back and have her fine-tune if possible.

 I personally wouldn’t go to a Great Clips or Super Cuts, but my hair can be difficult to work with. I’m pretty lucky in that my sister is a hair stylist, so when she does my hair I have no issue telling her exactly what I want (though most of the time I let her do her own thing – she’s super talented). But if I didn’t have her, I would definitely be very picky about who I go to for my hair. 

Is she rushing through your haircuts? Does she charge you a lot of money for being an “easy client”?

What kind of cuts are you asking for that she isn’t delivering? I do know that hair texture and thickness make a difference as to whether or not a particular haircut will work for you. Maybe that has something to do with it?

Find a friend or coworker with great hair and ask them where they go.   Oftentimes it’s someone operating out of their house on a word of mouth basis!

Ahh, fair enough. That sucks bee. I’d be feeling pretty bummed too. I agree with the PP’s suggestion about asking others for a referral.
