Check Your Head
You'd be surprised the things we learn about in school. We spend a lot of time studying disease and such of the scalp. We don't get any kind of degree in the field, but we know a thing or two (wink wink). Know that your stylist can not diagnose you with any illness/affliction, but we see moles and psoriasis and as we get to know you and see you often we can notice changes that may need medical attention.
I had a sweet 24 year old gal in my chair last night and I asked her about a scar she had on her head. She told me about HOW she got the scar and then asked how big it was. I told her it was about a quarter in length and the thickness of the back of my comb. She was surprised. She said that was bigger than she thought (and that is still very small). But because it was hidden in her hair she had never seen the scar. She was often asked about it when having her hair cut. It made me think of this article and I wanted to share my thoughts with you all. We (your stylists) see things you don't get the opportunity to see. I thought the article gave good advise in asking your stylist to inform you of those things if seen. Most stylists WON'T tell you unless you ask. So... just ask.
