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.
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. Referrals are helpful guides to help you explore and give you time to decide, so when your friends or neighbors 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, and that can already give you the hint whether you would like to sample their salon recommendation.
Assess the salon’s quality of work via their website or social media account
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.
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. 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 appointment system 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. 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 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. Although, there might be bad comments, the choice is still up to you.
