You just moved into a new town or neighborhood? Then one of your first worries will be to find a new beauty salon that fulfills all your needs.
It may not seem a big deal, but each beauty salon works with a certain type of customer. Maybe you don’t like the classy atmosphere of local establishments, but you don’t quite feel comfy in luxurious ones either. In this case, you want something casual and light where the staff is young and experienced. Or maybe you are the kind of girl who loves to be treated with extra care and attention so a high-end salon is best for you.
Regardless of preferences, the things that matter the most are the quality of service and their customer service.
Ask for referrals
You may be new to the area but your colleagues at work or school are well-accustomed to all the establishments. They are a great source of information so don’t hesitate to ask.
Also, you can go online and check people’s opinion about each of the salons that seem interesting and you may want to try. For instance, many beauty publications make lists with the best beauty salons in the country every year. These can be a great source of information, regardless of your location.
The customer service
One of the best ways to check out a salon’s quality of service is to get in contact with their customer service. This way, you have the opportunity to get an idea of the general atmosphere while you are calling to make an appointment.
For instance, if you want to go to a modern spa, you should choose one that is up to date with new technologies and uses a spa software for managing appointments. With such an establishment, you can book your session online and you will receive reminders that will keep you up to date in regards to your appointment. This way, the staff will be ready when you reach the salon and you won’t have to wait even though you booked your session days behind. Honestly, this is the type of salon we would recommend as they show maximum seriousness and high-interest in keeping the customer as happy as possible.
Pay an unofficial visit
You can go there with a friend, and while you’re waiting, take a look around. Is the salon clean and well-organized? Does the staff look happy and content with their activity? Do they use modern equipment and the furniture is comfy and elegant?
These are the main aspects you should follow, but the clientele is also important. If the salon is busy and most people who go there are about the same age as you, then this may be a good place.
Check out the stylists
Would you entrust your hair to a shady-looking lady with a thorn up hairstyle? Not really! Study the stylists before committing to a session and make sure they fit your criteria. These people represent the salon and they must be elegant and modern.
The same happens in the case of a spa – the staff must be clean at all times, and they must wear work uniforms that differentiate them from the customers. They also must be polite and friendly regardless of their personal issues.
