Do you ever browse through magazines for a photo to clip out and take to your hair stylist? Well, if you do, here are some tips on how to make sure that you are asking your stylist to do something that is, frankly, in the realm of possibility.

1) Do you have the same hair texture?

Ladies and men, please make sure the texture of the person in the picture is similar to yours. If you are a blond, don't bring in a picture of Erykah Badu and ask for her hair. It ain't happening!

2) Do you have the same face shape?

The shape of the person in the photo could be very different from yours, resulting a real a shocker when you see your new cut.

3) If the hairstylist dislikes the idea of your bringing in a photo, tell him or her to go inhale some bleach! Then find a new stylist.

4) Be sure to confirm how much hair will be cut off.

Shoulder length on a photo and on your own body can be two very different experiences

5) Are you and your stylist seeing the same colors in the photo?

Ask to see a swatch, to be sure you are on the same page.

6) And if you are bringing in photos of celebrities, keep in mind that they probably have hair extensions and live-in hair stylists.

Good luck!!
