Hairdressers are no strangers to weird and wacky requests, but have you ever wondered the styles or cuts they simply refuse to do? Here hairdressers reveal the 12 requests they wish clients would stop asking for – and we’re definitely guilty of one or two.
1. Bright red.
It sits on the cusp of natural and bold, but bright red is one colour ELEVEN Australia co-Creative Director and three-time Hairdresser of the Year, Joey Scandizzo is reluctant to agree to straight away.
“It’s tricky. There are so many beautiful shades of red that really highlight skin tones and features but really bright fake looking red can end up looking really tacky on the wrong person,” he says. (Watch: Mia Freedman on how to get a good haircut everytime. Post continues after video.)
Despite attempts, this is one style hairdressers don’t want to make a comeback.
“I did tell a woman no to a mullet, though she kept referring to it as a ‘scene shag’. I explained to her that what she wanted, short on top and long in the back, is indeed the hairstyle we have been trying to boycott for 20 years,” confessed one Reddit user.
The grey and silver trend took over hairdresser chairs everywhere last year, but it's not without its reservations.
"What annoys me the most is when someone asks for one of these silvery tones and you explain to them that you will have to go through an awkward phase of some warmer tones in your hair you may not want. When they actually see it [they] don't like it and complain. Sometimes there's no instant gratification."
