Practical Tips in Choosing a New Salon
A hair stylist is as equally essential as your regular dentist, and when you’re relocated into a new town or your old, reliable stylist has moved away, it’s obviously time to look for a new hair salon. Choosing a new salon is a tough one, especially if you’ve never been there before, because you’re not sure of the quality of their work. The following are practical tips in choosing one that can work for you.
Your friends at work or your neighbors can be a wealth of information, when you’re looking for a new salon, and asked them on their recommendation and also find out from them if they are satisfied with the service they received. Once they do have a particular salon to recommend, look at the quality of hair cut and hair color of your friends or neighbors and see if you are satisfied with how their hair is done, because even if no two people like the same hairstyles, referrals are considered as guides to help you explore and give you time to decide.
Visit online the salon’s website or social media accounts
Nowadays, well-known salons have their own website or Face Book or Instagram, and so check these out so you’d have better confirmation if the recommended salon is for you, and if they have an online chat box, you can inquire about your hair concerns to them and find out if you’re satisfied with their replies.
Pay a visit to the salon
You may want to have a physical visit at the salon and check for yourself the physical set-up of their place, and ask yourself the following: is the place comfortable, are the staff and stylists courteous; you can tell a lot from the moment you walked in to their doors. Interview one or more stylists and find out if they know how to do your desired hairstyle and carefully evaluate if you can detect their willingness to do the hair job for you.
You can tell if the salon provides professional service from the way they handle their booking appointments, so find out if their system is efficient. Professional and modern salons have a special salon software, applied at their website, that enables you to go online as a customer, book an appointment with the stylist of your choice and show up at your scheduled date and time.
Online reviews and feedback
It pays to also check online the salon’s customer feedback and review portion in their website, and find out if the salon rates well with their customers, such that they are pleased and satisfied with the services. The choice is still up to you, even if you read a few bad comments.
