Ways to Look for 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. Since you’ve never been there before and you’re not sure of the quality of their work, choosing a new salon can be a tough one. The following are practical tips in choosing one that can work for you.
Referrals from friends or neighbors
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.
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.
If you badly think that a physical visit at the salon is important, go and visit the recommended one and check the physical set-up of the place, and ask yourself the following: is the place comfortable, are the staff and stylists courteous. 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.
Salon’s booking appointment
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.
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. 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.
