According to an experienced barber, you should prepare for your barber appointment at least a couple of weeks before your barber appointment.

Most women could save themselves and their stylist time by preparing a few things before a planned visit to the hairdresser.

It all starts two weeks before the deadline—but only if you’re someone who uses purple shampoo or toner.

“Two weeks before your appointment, stop toning hair at home,” said Tom Smith, hairstylist and International Creative Color Director at Evo Hair Shine.

“Purple shampoo or color-enhancing home toners are fantastic for keeping your color looking fresh, but let them rinse away a bit before seeing your stylist so they have a clear view of where your hair is without them.”

He also recommends using an Olaplex No. 3 treatment seven days before your appointment, as it will help improve the quality of your hair before your appointment.

This is helpful for you because the healthier your hair is, the more coloring options you have—and you don’t have to chop as much if you don’t want to either.

Tom adds that it’s also a good idea to give your hair a “detox” with a cleansing shampoo or mineral remover before visiting the salon.

According to the hairdresser, Color Wow’s Dream Filter is good to use.

He also busted another myth about showing up to an appointment with dirty hair — revealing stylists prefer to work with clean hair.

Tom concluded: “Most hairdressers prefer to work with relatively clean hair – the exception being when you’re going for a scalp lightening, where a small accumulation of natural oils actually helps to protect your scalp from irritation.

“You wouldn’t go to the dentist without brushing your teeth, would you?”

Tom recommends doing this a day before your appointment.
