Whether you're heading to the salon for a post breakup cut or just want to switch up your 'do just in time for the changing season, there's no doubt there is only one thing that every girl wants after a salon trip, and that is to look good. But we all know that changing one's hairstyle is no easy feat. For starters, it has to suit your face shape, your personality, and of course your lifestyle, too. So to make sure you get your best cut yet on your next salon trip, we asked celebrity hairstylist Mark Rosales to list down the six questions you need to ask your hairstylist before making the cut!

  1. Will it look good on me?

Yes, that bob may look amazing on Song Hye Kyo, but the question is will it suit your face shape? Show your peg to the stylist, but make sure to ask him if the cut will look good on you so he can check if the style will compliment your feature and suggest a different 'do in case it won't.

  1. How short will the cut be?

This is one, if not the most common, misunderstanding between a client and a hairstylist—how short should the cut really be? Make sure to discuss the length with your stylist and ask where the perimeters will fall once the hair is dry and styled.

  1. How do I style it afterwards?

Here's the thing, a girl always, always has great hair after a salon trip, but managing it days after the cut has been made is a whole different story. Before you decide on a final hairstyle, ask your hairstylist how you should style your hair on a daily basis. Always choose a haircut that works best for your lifestyle. That way, you won't have to compromise your 'do for the day in case your schedule gets too busy to handle.

  1. How should my hair routine be to maintain this look?

Knowing how to style your new 'do is one thing, but knowing the hair routine your new cut needs is just as important. Ask your stylist how often do you have to go back to the salon to maintain the freshness of your cut. Make sure to ask him if there are any hair treatments you need as well.

  1. Is this cut achievable?

Extreme layers a la edgy Jenny Humphrey may be the grungy look that you're going for, but some styles require you to give your hair time to grow to achieve the 'do.

  1. Is there a certain type of shampoo and conditioner that you would recommend?

Although you may already have your go-to shampoo and conditioner pairing for you tresses, your stylist may have one in mind that will work better for your new cut. So make sure to ask!
