How to Choose a New Salon
When you’re relocated into a new town and your hair is in need of a haircut, but your old, reliable stylist has moved away, it’s time to look for a new 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.
Ask for referrals
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. 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.
Visit online the salon’s website or social media accounts
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.
Go and check out 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.
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. 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.
