When your old, reliable stylist has moved away and your hair is in need of a haircut, 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. 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.
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.
Pay a visit to the salon
A physical visit at the salon may be a confirming help, so go to the recommended salon, check the physical set-up of the place, and ask yourself the following: is the place comfortable, are the staff and stylists courteous. 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
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. Modern salons introduce special salon software 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. Although, there might be bad comments, the choice is still up to you.
