There are hundreds of thousands
of salons and you’ve been to your fair share of them –
how do you choose one? How do you find one that best suits your needs while avoiding getting any sloppy or insufficient services?
Use These Tips To Choose A
TIP ONE: Choosing a salon solely by price doesn’t work: The truth is, when we invest wisely, we get
what we pay for.
Beware of unbelievably low
prices. Call the cheapest salon and I’ll wager you get a so-so job with very little service.
It only makes sense that the
cheapest salons have to cut costs by using cheap, low-wage, low skilled employees, cheap products, and cheap methods. (After
all they have to make up the “quality’ with “quantity”).
Are you really going to be
happy with cheap, rushed service and no guarantees? If not, then … the lowest price salon really isn’t a bargain
TIP TWO: What kind of results does the salon get? Many professionals
claim to have experience or talent. Often people are upset when they expect their hair to look like a picture they brought
into a stylist, but reality sets in about the time they see chunks of hair falling to the floor.
Avoid this tragedy, through
excellent communication. Ask to see pictures of the professional’s work. If they don’t have any ask if they have
a few clients you can call for a reference or testimonials you can read through. Make
sure the salon professional are straight with you. Often times the difference between leaving the salon in tears or with a
big smile on your face is simply communications.
Ask your stylist if they get
continuing education. A good stylist will say yes.
