I’m a hairdresser and these are the most annoying things clients say to us dailyNovember 17, 2021
A HAIRDRESSER has revealed the most annoying thing that clients do, and she is blaming social media.
Laci Rae, who is a hairstylist in the US, tells how much it irks her when people in her chair think they know more than her.
Taking to her TikTok platform Laci said that people feel they have a right to tell hairdressers how to do their job because they have watched hairdressing videos online.
Posting under the domain @laci_loves_hair, she captioned the post: "Things you're doing wrong as a client."
"Telling your hairdresser how to do their job.This should take little to no explanation. I understand what you think you know because there's YouTube, there's TikTok, there are people Brad Mondo who educate people." she said.
Adding: "So ya people might know a lot nowadays about the industry."

Laci went on to explain that many clients may think they know because they have some information on how to look after their own hair, but she has over seven years of experience with all hair types.
"Until you have stood behind a chair for seven-plus years, worked on literally hundreds of heads of hair, with different textures, different colours, different everything," said Laci.
"Until you've done that for multiple years, you don't know what you're talking about. You just know enough to talk. So really, it's distracting, it's insulting and honestly, it's annoying. Just don't do it" said the hairdresser.
Laci also says this goes both ways, as you should be only paying a hairdresser when you fully trust their judgement.
"Until you find a stylist where you are comfortable, and you can just sit in their chair and go 'OK make me pretty,' keep looking," she said.
Adding: "You shouldn't have to tell them what to do."
In the post that has almost 1k views on TikTok, people have been quick to comment.
"'You just know enough to talk,' haha. This seriously helps me so much. My hairdresser thanks you" commented one person.
Another said: "The way you worded this made it click for me. My hairstylist is way too sweet to be blunt with me, and sometimes I need bluntness."
"'You just know enough to talk,' hahaha I couldn't imagine" commented a third.
