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. Because you’re not sure of the quality of their work, choosing a new salon can be a tough one, most especially if you’ve never been there before. Here are practical ways to be able to choose a salon that can meet your standard requirements.
Ask for referrals
The best people to inquire from are your friends at work or your neighbors, 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.
Check the salon’s website or social media accounts
With the information resources from the Internet, check out the recommended salon’s own website or Face Book or Instagram and go over their style cuts 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.
See the salon physically
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. Engage with a brief conversation to one or more stylists and find out if they know how to do your desired hairstyle and weigh down if they have the willingness to do the hair job for you.
Booking arrangement of the salon
Professional salons have their own system of booking appointments; therefore, if the recommended salon has no difficulty in booking for your appointment, then that could be the salon for you. Find out if the recommended salon has a special salon software in their website that can handle online customers for booking arrangements, and if there is one, the next thing you’ll do is go to the scheduled date and time.
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. Bear in mind that human nature is more apt to complain, so there will probably be a few bad comments from customers; however, the choice is still up to you.
