21Look The Part
No one will want to get their hair done by someone who looks un-styled. The first person a hairdresser should be practicing on is themselves. A hairstylist has to look professional, and if they really want to be taken seriously, that means the whole package. A stylist's hair should sport an up-to-the-minute
cut and color, and always look like they just stepped out of a salon chair themselves.
When it comes to wardrobe, what a hairdresser wears should be similar to clothing choices of clients they want to attract - hip, stylish, and/or upscale. People come to a hairdresser for advice, so it's only natural that their own look would be placed under the microscope. Clients may come in wearing sweats, but a hairdresser always has to look the part.
