Finding a great hair salon is difficult, but finding a great black hair salon that can             properly treat and style African-American hair can be even harder.  Quite often, stylists don’t realize that black hair is structurally different from other types of hair and that means that they may use the wrong products and tools that can end up damaging the hair rather than helping it.  If you’re still on the hunt for the best black hair salon in the Frisco, TX area, here are three tips for making the right choice:

Get Referrals

Getting information from people you trust is one of the best ways to find just about any kind of service, from air conditioning repair to wedding planning, so asking your friends, family and colleagues for their recommendations for great black hair care is the smartest first step to take.  After personal referrals, your best second step is to go online to review sites like Yelp to see what strangers are saying about salons that are in your area or on your radar.  Remember, not everyone who has a great experience bothers to post a review; generally, people who are angry about something are more likely to post.

Take A Tour

Once you’ve narrowed down your search for a salon to two or three possibilities, visit them to see what they look like inside and out.  The cleanliness and professionalism of a business is important when it comes to starting a long-term relationship for hair care.  Is the waiting room clean and inviting?  Does the receptionist greet you promptly and courteously?  Take a look at the styling room or rooms to see how clean they look and to see how staff and customers interact.  Are there other African-American customers there?  Even if you take a chance on a stylist and find that you like the way they treat your hair, you’ll have to come back to the salon they work in each time, so it’s important that you feel comfortable there.

Ask A Lot Of Questions

After you’ve chosen the salon, with the help of your personal referrals and your first-impression visit, make an appointment with a stylist.  Don’t be afraid to say that you want someone with extensive experience in caring for black hair.  When you get to your appointment, tell your new stylist about any issues you have with your hair or problems you’ve noticed with hair care you’ve gotten in the past.  Ask how your stylist can help with those issues or problems and ask about their experience with products, tools and techniques that are used specifically to care for black hair.  Ask about maintenance of any hairstyles your new stylist might recommend to find out how much time and work you’re going to have to put into taking care of your hair and ask about substitutes for more expensive products they may sell for home hair care at the salon.

African-Americans have unique hair structure requiring specific hair care to ensure that they look their best and that their hair stays healthy.  Follow a few simple tips to take the guesswork out of finding the black hair salon that will give you the hair you want.  When those tips lead you to Parker Trichology Centre in Frisco, TX, call us at (214) 307-6200 for an appointment or a salon tour.  You can also visit us online at to find out more about our services.
