Salon San Carlos: Your Pre-Appointment Checklist

Welcome to Salon San Carlos, your go-to hair salon in Pensacola, Florida, where we specialize in catering to all hair types. Whether you’re coming in for a color service, a haircut, curly haircut, or event styling, preparation is key to ensuring you get the best results. Here’s your comprehensive pre-appointment checklist to help you prepare for your visit.

For Color Services
  1. Consultation

– Schedule a Consultation: If it’s your first time getting a color service with us, or if you’re making a major change, book a consultation with your stylist. This helps us understand your hair history, desired look, and any concerns you might have.

  1. Hair Condition

– Healthy Hair: Make sure your hair is in good condition. Deep condition your hair a week before your appointment to ensure it’s hydrated and healthy.

– Avoid Damage: Avoid chemical treatments and excessive heat styling a week before your appointment to prevent damage.

  1. Clean Hair

– Clean, Not Freshly Washed: Wash your hair 24-48 hours before your appointment. Hair that’s slightly oily helps protect your scalp during the coloring process.

  1. Be Honest

– Hair History: Be prepared to share your hair history, including past color treatments, henna use, and any at-home dye jobs.

  1. Inspiration Photos

Bring Photos: Bring pictures of the color you want. Visual references help ensure you and your stylist are on the same page.

For Haircuts
  1. Know Your Style

Research Styles: Have an idea of the haircut you want. Consider your lifestyle and maintenance level when choosing a style.

  1. Clean Hair

Freshly Washed: Come with clean, dry hair. Freshly washed hair allows your stylist to see your natural texture and cutting lines more clearly.

  1. Dress Accordingly

– Comfortable Clothing: Wear comfortable clothing that won’t interfere with the haircut process. Avoid high collars and bulky tops.

  1. Communicate

– Be Clear: Communicate your hair goals clearly with your stylist. Don’t hesitate to express any concerns or ask questions during your appointment.

For Curly Haircuts
  1. Know Your Curl Type

Identify Your Curls: Understand your curl type (e.g., wavy, curly, coily) to communicate effectively with your stylist.

  1. Dry Styling

Dry Curls: Arrive with your hair dry and styled as you usually wear it. This helps your stylist see your natural curl pattern and how your curls fall.

  1. Avoid Heavy Products

Minimal Products: Use minimal styling products on the day of your appointment. Avoid heavy gels, creams, or oils that can weigh down your curls.

  1. Detangle Gently

Tangle-Free: Ensure your hair is detangled to avoid delays and discomfort during the haircut.

  1. Communicate

Curl Goals: Share your specific curly hair goals and concerns, including any issues with frizz, shrinkage, or shape.

For Event Styling
  1. Consultation

– Trial Run: For major events like weddings or proms, schedule a trial run. This ensures you’re happy with the style and allows time for adjustments.

  1. Hair Condition

Clean Hair: Wash your hair the night before your appointment using minimal conditioner. Avoid heavy styling products to ensure your hair holds the style better.

  1. Accessories

Bring Accessories: If you’re using any hair accessories, veils, or special pins, bring them with you. This allows your stylist to incorporate them seamlessly into your look.

  1. Time Management

Plan Ahead: Arrive on time or even a little early. Event styling can be time-consuming, and we want to ensure you look perfect for your special occasion.

General Tips

Hydrate and Eat: Make sure you’re well-hydrated and have eaten before your appointment, especially for longer sessions.

Be Punctual: Arrive on time to maximize your appointment and ensure we stay on schedule.

Communicate: Don’t hesitate to voice any preferences or concerns. Your satisfaction is our top priority.
