Ever get the feeling you are just a number with a ticket in your hand..NEXT! Now you shutter as the Stylist doesn’t seem to care at all about you and is more engaged with him or her self in the mirror. In fact, he or she doesn’t even seem to acknowledge your existence and is more engaged in the latest salon gossip or talking to someone else at the salon like you are not even there. Suffice to say you leave with one side lower than the other opting not to say anything, after all they would probably just ignore that too, so you decide to save yourself any further humiliation and just go home and fix it.

If this has happened to you or someone you know it’s time you stop serving the salons and let one start serving you. The New Year is a great time to turn over a new leaf and develop a new you. In the coming articles I will be discussing how you can become an educated salon client and arm yourself with the knowledge you need to never become a salon victim again. You will become a happy client and look better than you have in years finally getting what you always wanted from the salon.

The first step is some quick tips of how to look for a new salon and what you should expect. Begin to ask some questions and you will get a picture of the character of the salon and some clues on authenticity verses just great marketing.

Tip #1 – Do your homework.

Ask around to family and friends that look good and are happy with their salon. What is the name of their salon and whom do they recommend? Then Google the Salon they suggest and view their web site. Is it professional? Does it give you any information on the qualifications or education on who will be doing your hair? Are they qualified? What does their own hair look like? Prices, are they listed so that you have an idea of what to expect upfront? Can you see real before and after pictures of real salon clients to view samples of the salons real work or are they all Super Models that look like they’ve had a date with Photoshop? Are they easily accessible to you outside of salon hours via email?

Tip #2 – First Impressions, How do they greet you?

Now that you have decided on the salon it’s time to see how they will treat you. This greeting process starts with your first call to them. Is the salon a by appointment only salon? If, so that is a good indication that they are willing to take time for you and be considerate of your time. It also means privacy, no boss or co-worker walking in on you the next day only to be the butt of a water cooler or even Face book joke. Something like, we all knew you were not a “real blonde”. LOL! Next make the call. How is the voice on the other end? Is it personal? Can you talk to someone or leave a message or does the phone just keep ringing? If you leave a message do they get back to you in a timely manner? Once you have secured your appointment you are on your way to the next step and ready for some more great Tips on how to proceed to getting the great service you deserve!
