Your mobile hairstylist will bring all the needed tools required for hairstyling treatments that may be chosen.

Tip 4. Make sure they look the part
You wouldn’t go to a dentist with bad teeth would you? Of course not so make sure your mobile hairstylist also looks the part.

A mobile hairdresser who cannot be bothered with his or her look, is not passionate enough about hair to work on yours.
Tip 5. Always Use a certified hairstylist
Just because a mobile hairdresser does not work in a salon does mean that they shouldn’t have the certifications of a hairstylist that does. Your mobile hairstylist should be able to produce an official certification from an accredited school when asked.
