Did you just move away from home? Did you have a bad experience with your previous stylist? Are you simply looking for a new place to go to for hair concerns?
If you’re feeling lost, then don’t worry, today’s your lucky day! In this article, we’ve provided 5 tips on how to find the perfect salon for you.
Ask people you trust
The easiest step for finding the perfect salon for you is to ask people you trust. This includes your family, your friends, your acquaintances – anyone who can give you an unbiased opinion. While you can’t know for sure if what works for them will also work on you, it might be worth a shot. For instance, if you see your sister donning an amazing hairstyle, you might want to ask them where they got it so that you can see for yourself.
Read online reviews
If your friends and family can’t point you to any specific salon, online reviews can be a great way to find the perfect salon for you. That said, you shouldn’t rely too much on them either, especially if the reviews are from the salon’s own page. Make sure to check on third-party websites or trusted bloggers for unbiased reviews.
Review their offered services
Many salons offer different services to their customers, not just hair care. Some salons even offer mani-pedis and even foot spas, for instance. Others also offer beauty services like eyebrow threading, massages, waxing, etc. But of course, there are some salons that specialize in just a few things. Some salons specialize in blowouts or rebonding, for example. If you’d like to get those treatments done, you’re better off going to salons like those.
Find an expert in your style
There are good and bad hairstylists everywhere. When trying to find the perfect hair salon for you, it’s important to take a look at their stylists as well. If you have curly hair, you probably shouldn’t go to your straight-haired friend’s favorite stylist who typically works on straight-haired people. Make sure that there are experts in your preferred style in those salons that you’ll be checking out. Of course, you want someone who is especially qualified to work on your specific hair type and hair concern.
Don’t experiment on your first time
Once you already have a salon in mind, you should call in for your first appointment. It’s extremely important that you don’t experiment on your first time in the salon. Be as detailed as possible when telling them about your preferred procedure, just to see if you will vibe with the place and the stylist. After all, this is the time for you to check if they can match your expectations sufficiently.
