I try to stick to the same stylist if at all possible. I love him and he knows my hair. Makes things much easier. But every once in a while don´t have a problem trying someone new if he/she has been highly recommended. It´s a good way to keep looking for convenience (in terms of schedules and location).
My hair is really short, to about the bottom of my ear. I have a ton of bang. I always do something different with it. For some reason I find it easier to work with my hair short then long. I haven't had long hair in years!
I have a hair stylist I used since i was in High School (cut and color) and I love her but since we've moved farther away i hardly go to her I sometimes use a stylist at a near by place if I dont feel like doing it my self. (Ex-Cosmo student)
I don't cut my hair very often but I use the Same stylist. I am loyal like that. My previous stylist made me mad when her 2 friends came in to her booth and started talking to her non stop and she wasnt paying attention and burned me with a flat iron.
