What makes a great haircut?

A great hairdresser of course!

Fashions & trends always change but the elements of a great haircut are always the same.

Read below for our Top 6 ways to tell if your haircut is great, or visit our salon in South Woodford and

find out for yourself.


1. You love it!

Sounds simple but a great haircut is one that you love.  Terence Andrew hairdressers will listen to what you want, ask you lots of questions that you probably hadn’t thought of, want you to provide pictures so you’re talking the same language and have the guts to tell you if it’s going to

work or not!

4. A great hairdresser creates great transition hairstyles.

I want it long.
I love it short but now I want it long.
I want to go short but I’m not sure how I’ll look.

Having styled hair for as long as we have, we have to think we’ve heard and seen it all.  And having styled hair for as long as we have, we know how to do it all.  So a great hairdresser can create great hairstyles no matter where you’re headed.  We’ve transitioned our clients from short to long, from long to longer and somewhere in between and each and every time – they look great!


2. Cut the weight out but not the length

Love your long locks but they’re looking unhealthy at the ends? Great hairdressers create great haircuts when they can create shape and remove weight without having to cut lots of layers.  How many times have you come out of a salon with your hair layered to death?  A great hairdresser knows how to achieve the style you’re after without creating an unmanageable mess.  The only caveat to this is that if you have lots of split ends and/or heat damage from irons… a great hairdresser will tell you that they need the chop. 


5. You wear your hair in the style that has been created for you.

Sounds silly but what’s the point of having a hairstyle if you’re forever wearing a headband, ponytail or cap.  A great hairdresser is going to create a great hairstyle that you’ll love and find easy to take care of on your own.  That doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a ponytail, but a great hairdresser will show you how to make a great hairstyle out of it!


3. A great haircut looks great from haircut to haircut.

Our hairdressers will tell you how long your hairstyle will look fabulous for.  It’s not a ploy to see you more often.   So the thing about it is, if our hairdresser tells you that your hairstyle is going to last 6, 8,10 or 12 weeks, you can bet that they’ll be pretty darn accurate.  If you leave it longer then you’re likely to do something drastic –

like hack at it yourself!


6. A great hairdresser can interpret trends to make them suit you.

Some hairstyles simply won’t work as well with fine hair as they will with thick.  Some women can carry off a certain style better than others but a great hairdresser can always interpret a great haircut in a way that suits you to a tee.
