Freelance Hairdresser in Gauteng before I go into the points to help you choose your hairdresser, I should first outline the definition of what is a mobile hairdresser? A Mobile Stylist is a hairdresser who usually works for his or herself visiting clients at their homes or place of work, or any other agreed venue and does not operate from a fixed hair salon or beauty shop.
Choosing a Mobile Hairdresser - 4 Simple Tips to Help You Choose The Best
1.When to consider using a mobile hairdresser. The services of a mobile hairstylist may often be required to be used at a home for a wedding when it may often be inconvenient for the bride to travel to a hair or beauty salon to have her hair and her make-up done, requiring her then to travel back to her home to put on her wedding gown. Instead, the hairdresser will travel to the bride’s home in order to style the bride’s hair for her special day. A Local Mobile Hairdresser hairstylist is often in demand for Care homes, hospitals, prisons, the armed forces, and in many other situations where individual attention is required.
Becoming a Hairdresser - The Advantages and Disadvantages
4. Always Use a qualified hairdresser. As with Salon hairdressers, your mobile hairdresser should hold formal hairdressing qualifications. The UK national Vocational Qualification in Hairdressing (NVQ) is the only recognized qualification system, and more than 60% of mobile hairstylists are now trained to this standard. They should also hold professional indemnity insurance.
Your mobile hairdresser should be happy and prepared to recommend the perfect hairdos and often make-up to accentuate and compliment the individual looks of the customer, and offer suggestions on what hairstyle or make up should best suit the client.

It would be impossible to count how many times each summer a professional groomer is asked to shave a client's dog in an attempt to make it cooler. Here in rural Montana where the summers are scorching, I have had requests to shave almost every breed imaginable. It is a common misconception that all dogs would automatically be cooler if they had less hair.
First it is important to consider is what type of hair the dog has. All dogs can basically be divided into two groups. First we have those who need to have their cut on a regular basis, such as poodles, shih tzus, cocker spaniels, lhasa apsos, terriers, etc. Dogs in this group have hair that would continue growing longer and longer until it was cut. These breeds can be shaved with no problem. Taking off excess coat by shaving them down in hot weather will indeed make them more comfortable and cooler, and will not cause damage to the dog's coat. However, this is not the case with the second group.
This group of dogs consists of all the other breeds, longhaired or shorthaired, whose hair grows to one length only and then remains that length. These dogs typically shed much more than dogs in the first group. These include retrievers, pomeranians, great Pyranees, chow chows, pugs, German shepherds, huskies, and the list goes on and on. Their coats act as insulators against the elements, and should never be shaved. After all, do you take the insulation out of your home in the summer to make it cooler? Absolutely not, and the same goes for these dogs as well.
It is important to note that if you have a mixed breed dog, it can be difficult to determine which group the dog falls into. Most groomers can evaluate a dog's coat upon inspection to let you know which group the dog falls into, and what course of action to take, the risks involved, etc.
As a former professional groomer, I strongly feel that it is the groomer's responsibility to fully explain these things to clients wanting to have their dogs shaved. It is important to share knowledge with the clients to make the best decision possible for the pet in need of grooming.

The Dreadlock Commandments: The Do's and Don'ts of the Locking Process
I recently received an email from a woman who said she had very long hair. For the past several months, her hair had been shedding much more than what was normal for her. She had read on some forums that sometimes the weight from long hair can pull the hair shaft out and can result in loss. So, she wanted to know if cutting her hair much shorter could potentially stop her shedding. I have a definite opinion on this based on my own experience and research. I will share it in the following article.
The Difference Between Traction Alopecia And Shedding Hair: There are cases where wearing your hair in a very tight braids or pony tails can results in the hair breaking off or pulling out. This is called traction alopecia and it's well documented. Usually, if you examine the hair, you'll see that some of it has broken off. You'll see short little jagged strands that indicate breakage.
Or, sometimes, the weight is so much that rather than breaking off, the hair will actually be pulled out. If you were to take one of these spent hairs and examined the tip, you'd likely see that on the end (at the bulb that comes from your follicle,) the dark colored sheath is still in place. If this is hard to envision, take one strand of your hair, grab it tightly, and pull. Then, examine the end. Since the strand was forcefully pulled out, the sheath that is supposed to protect it will still be in tact.
Now, if your loss is due to the weight of your hair, then yes, getting a cut could potentially help this situation. But, I find that this is the exception rather than the rule. And if this is the case, you can sometimes see a difference in what you're seeing on the end of the strand. In general though, usually this type of loss does not give rise to the high levels of loss that we see with shedding.
Trimming your hair can certainly help to improve it's appearance. A good cut can make you feel better and can give the illusion of more volume. So, it can definitely be worth going for a trim. But making drastic style changes isn't likely to stop some of the common causes of shedding like TE and AGA.
