Heading to the salon is a chance for many people to relax and escape their regular stresses for a little while. It is a chance to catch up with your favorite stylist and feel pampered for even just a little bit. Before you head out the door, keep these 5 things every hair stylist wants you to keep in mind. They are meant to help you get even more out of your appointment.
1 Delays happen, let your stylist know. Traffic accidents backed up highways, and other delays happen. Your stylist understands these things are out of your control. However, if the delay is going to delay your appointment, please call the salon. If it is a huge delay, like the road is closed for an extended period of time reschedule your appointment. This allows you to have your appointment stress free and allows the salon to keep the flow of scheduled clients and walk-ins moving smoothly.
2 Unplug from your phone and watch the transformation. Put your phone down during your appointment. Catch up with your stylist, let them know if there are big events coming up. Ask what is going on in their life and just relax. This time is for you!
3 If something changes, let your stylist know before you settle in for a wash. As a regular, your stylist has a good idea what you want before you arrive. If you want to try something new, let them know early. This can help them plan your visit and get them as excited about your new hairdo as you are.
4 Tips are appreciated. While many things change through the years, tips are still an amazing way to show appreciation for a job well done. You can even choose to tip any assistants that help your stylist. This is a great way to spread the cheer of a fun day at the salon.
5 Research the prices before you go. If you are new to a town or changing salons, research their prices before you go. Every salon sets their own prices. You don’t want to be caught off guard by an increase in price for the same services. If you cannot find the price online, ask for an estimate when you call to make your appointment.
The above advice ensures your visit is fun for both you and your stylist. Grab your phone, make that appointment, and pamper yourself for a little while.
