50 Memes Every Hair Stylist Will Relate To

Typical situations that will have you nodding along #ifyouknowyouknow.

1. There are 2 types of hairstylists on a Saturday after work

We’d love to say that we’re ‘ready to party’ all weekend kinda stylists, but in reality, sleeping is one of our favourite hobbies!

2. 5 mins after getting home from the salon…

Well, that sounds about right! 😂😂 Does every hairstylist not head straight into bed?

3. Is being a professional hairstylist a 9-5 job?

Working 9-5 just doesn’t always fit the industry, some days it’s more like 8 am-9 pm! Is that the same for anyone else?

4. The many emotions of a hairstylist

It’s an emotional rollercoaster at times…especially when you’ve spent your whole day eyeballing a colour correction!

5. Bad Memory

*Slowly dies a bit inside* “Please can you remind me of what we did last time!”

6. Client compliments

I know right! I mean…WHY THANK YOU!

7. Blow-Dry Day

I’m tired and my arms are soreeee!

8. When you actually find time to eat

BRING ME ALL THE FOOD…nom nom nom!
