Ugh! I just got home from the hair salon, and I’m looking in the mirror at my new hairdo. Not to be critical, but I think I could do a better job myself! What was that hair stylist thinking? With a belabored sigh, I take the hairbrush and begin combing out my expensive salon hairdo. I then re-do it, so it looks pretty much the same as it always has. All that money and time wasted having my hair done – next time I’ll know better!
I doubt there aren’t too many women alive that this hasn’t happened to! If only we had a guide to good hair salons! Actually, there are some factors that you should consider when choosing a good hair salon. By following these tips, you can help eliminate the probability of a bad hair day!
First, and foremost, you need to be able to communicate with your hair stylist. Make sure that she is willing to take adequate time to find out what you want, and how you want your hair to look. A good stylist will even schedule extra time on the first visit to allow this to happen. A good stylist will also ask your opinions while she is in the process of fixing your hair. Then, afterward, she’ll follow up with you to see if you like it, or to see if something can be changed next time so it’s more to your liking. Good stylists keep notes and write down what your preferences are.You can get additional information at Galway Hair Salon.
It’s also important to find a salon where the environment is comfortable and inviting. Do you feel welcome and at ease there? Is the stylist conversational and perceptive? My current stylist actually introduces clients to each other, which I think promotes conversation. Is the waiting area attractive? Do the stylists demonstrate upbeat, positive attitudes about their workplace? Is coffee or tea offered? Also, does the salon reflect an air of cleanliness and good hygiene? Obviously, some of these things may not matter to you, but you can use some of the criteria as a guide to choosing a good hair salon.
You want to choose a hair salon that is in a good location for you, either close to work or home. If you have to go way out of your way to travel to your salon it will take extra time and money to get there, and you probably will not go as often as you’d like. Before you schedule an appointment, make sure that the salon offers the services that you want. For example, if you decide that you’d like your eyebrows waxed every few times that you have your hair done, find out if your salon offers that service. You might also want to check to see if the salon has beauty products to sell that you might be interested in purchasing.
