Name: Jessica

Location: Covent Garden

Profession: stock exchange trader

Age: 26

Have you used a mobile hairdresser before: No I was very reluctant to use a different hairdresser but since I have been living in London have tried so many salons and I have never been happy with their w6ork, also the stylists at the salon always change so the service is inconsistent.

Why you have chosen this service: I am a professional trader and I work 12 hours a day so I do not have time to get an appointment at the salon. I thought to try a mobile hairdresser. I have been very happy with the outcome. The stylist is always the same, very friendly and I do not have to wait hours at the salon.
One night I had to attend this formal dinner with people from work as we were meeting an important client. My hair was a mess, so I phoned the mobile hairdresser. The day after the hairstylist came she was very punctual. She had all the necessary equipments in trolley suitcase, all I had to do was to wash my hair before the appointment. The lady cut and blow-dry my hair professionally. In less than an hour I was ready and dressed for my dinner.

Services: I have ordered the classic ladies’ cut and blow-dry

Would you come back for more? Yes indeed, I like the personal service that I get, and I do not need to make all day appointments at the salon any more.

5 tips on choosing the right mobile hairdresser in London

Written by Serena Durham  June 18th 2012

In this article you will learn the 5 most important tips for choosing the right mobile hairdresser. In today’s facebook era we are constantly on the go and it is very common for to not even have the time to eat lunch- let alone have the time to physically go to the hair dresser. Lucky for us mobile hairstylist are becoming more common and are willing to meet you at the comfort of your own home.
However before I go further in detail it’s important to define what exactly a mobile hairdresser is. A mobile hairstylist is a mobile hairdresser who typically works for themselves and visits the vast majority of their clients at their own homes, work places, or even at other agreed locations like a hotel. Now that you know exactly what a mobile hairstylist is look below for the top 5 tips on choosing your own.
Tip 1: Get Proof of their work

The first tip to choosing the right mobile hairdresser is to make sure to choose a professional mobile hairstylist that has testimonials and picture perfect proof of their work. This is very simple to obtain as the vast majority of professional stylist are very eager to show their results- after all it will make it easier for them to acquire your business.
Keep in mind that because of the internet it is fairly easy for an unscrupulous mobile hairdresser to steal testimonials and pictures another mobile hair stylist’s website. Because of this it is wise to make sure the overall tone of their portfolio pictures look somewhat similar. Hair styling is an art, and artist tends to stick to the same signature style.
Tip 2: Use a Mobile Hairdresser at the right time.

Use a mobile hairstylist if you work at home, are planning a celebration, or sleep at your place of work such as in the case of working for a start up. A mobile hairdresser is the perfect solution when your mobility is restricted to inconvenient work schedules or when you’re throwing a special party and what everyone to look their best. Your party goers will really appreciate it!

Tip 3: Know your expectations

Your mobile hairstylist will bring all the needed tools required for hairstyling treatments that may be chosen. A professional mobile hairdresser will bring scissors, combs , curling irons, blow dryers, gels shampoos, dyes and anything else needed to perform the desired style. Beware of any mobile hairdresser that expects you to provide the tools.

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 professional mobile hairdresser should wear stylish clothing and present themselves with a nice, clean, modern hairstyle. 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. Currently the UK national Vocational Qualification in Hairdressing also known as the NVQ is the only recognized qualification system. Make sure your mobile hairdresser is qualified.
