In the salon industry, consultations are key to ensuring you and your hair designer are on the same page so you can walk out of the salon with the hair of your dreams. Our talented team is highly trained in communication, trending styles and countless techniques to understand the best route to reach your goals. We understand the power of a beautiful color & cut and would love to make your vision become reality, but first, we have to properly understand your end goals. Consultations are the perfect chance for you and your hair designer to connect, chat about your beauty routine, your lifestyle and hobbies, past hair services, and to develop the best plan for you. 

We chatted with our hair professionals to gather the tips & tricks that lead to a perfect consultation. When preparing for your next hair reservation, it is important to complete the following steps:

Gather Images

Communicating your style and color vision can be challenging, and to avoid any confusion in the process, it’s best to have a general idea of what your hair goals are. Our team can absolutely assist you in the development of the idea, but we recommend having a few ideas of what you could see as a potential end result. As your first step, browse through Pinterest or Instagram and save what catches your eye. Create a Pinterest board or a favorites folder of all the hairstyles and hair colors you love in one place. And, it’s okay to mix-and-match! If you love the color in one image, but can’t see that cut working for you, your stylist will be happy to combine your visions into one. 



Be prepared to share your hair history with your stylist – and note: they will not judge you! Our stylists need to know details like past box hair dye use, if you’re experiencing hair thinning or damage, recently had hair extensions, etc. as these key pieces of information that can make a difference in your hair journey. Especially when it comes to hair color, we will need to know exactly what we’re working with to create the perfect formula for you.

Trust The Process

It’s best to arrive knowing that some transformations take time. It’s important to not be afraid to take smaller steps to maintain the integrity of your hair, especially when it comes to lightening your natural color. Our hair designers will be careful to not over-process the hair and may ask you for 2 or 3 sessions to achieve your desired look.


Take note of the hair products you currently use including shampoo, conditioner, styling products, heat protectant, etc. Your stylist will ask you what your current routine looks like to better determine the upkeep of your hair. They may recommend our naturally derived, vegan Aveda products to keep your salon results for longer and to enhance the health of your hair.

It’s great to reserve with a hair designer that has been highly recommended to you by a friend or family member, but it’s even better to reserve with a hair designer that fits your vibe. Our stylists at Neroli Salon & Spa are highly active on Instagram showcasing their recent work as their own online portfolio. Before making your reservation, browse their feed to determine if they are the right fit for you – whether that be specialty cuts, color, or hair texture. We repost our team’s transformations often on our pages, so be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see the latest & greatest in our salon spaces. If you’re unsure where to start, our Guest Services team is available at 414.227.2888 and would be happy to help you find the perfect fit.

It’s important to remember that hair consultations are not a one-way conversation. After gathering these important pieces, your hair designer will help you determine the best color and cut for your hair, maintenance, and a series of reservations to achieve your dream hair. If you’re struggling to determine your goal final look, voice that to your hair designer and together you will find the perfect fit for you and your budget.
