Although it may not seem important – selecting a hair salon is quite essential. If you make a mistake and choose the wrong salon – you would have made a big step you will regret. Although it can be hard, there are ways to tell whether a salon is good enough. We at Hairnow know we are, and have some things to keep in mind when choosing a new salon.
You want to look for a salon that has a great location maybe close to home. You don’t want to drive an hour, and you do want convenient parking but remember, if you find a great stylist, it’s worth the drive
Front of Salon Appearance
First impressions are everything. You want to go somewhere that has flair and style, but is clean and tidy.
Quality of Service
You definitely want someone who is professional and knows the latest trends, but meets your requirements.
A good way to see what others are saying is by researching on the internet, and reading customer comments and reviews. Also, remember word of mouth is the best advertisement, so see what others are saying.
