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.
A good source of information on a new salon is to inquire from are your friends at work or your neighbors, by asking them on their recommendation and also asking them if they are satisfied with the service they received. A good referral from your friends or neighbors can be useful for you to explore and check, but you can actually already start getting some hair ideas just by looking at the quality of hair cut and hair color of your friends or neighbors, and if you think you like it, that recommended salon may work out for you, too.
Since most recognized salons have Face Book or Instagram accounts or they have a website, check and go over their style cuts based on the posted photos 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. Talk to one or more stylists and know if they know how to do your desired hairstyle and assess if they are willing to do the hair job for you.
Booking arrangement of the salon
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. 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.
Check online on customer feedback and reviews
It is good to be thorough, so try to also check online the salon’s customer feedback and review portion in their website, and find out if the customers are pleased and satisfied with the services. The choice is still up to you, even if you read a few bad comments.
