5 Must-Have Qualities of a Good Hair Salon November 7, 2016

5 Must-Have Qualities of a Good Hair Salon, Northeast Jefferson, Colorado

Ugly breakup with your hairstylist? Recently moved to a new city? Hunting for a new hair salon involves more than reading a few Yelp reviews. Of course, you want a stylist who is experienced, talented, and friendly, but you also don’t want to spend more than you have to! 

Here are five key qualities to look for in a new hair salon to get the best possible value:

  • Experienced Staff: Look for a hairstylist who has worked in the industry for years. An experienced stylist makes cut suggestions that complement your facial features and hair texture, easily predicts hairstyling trends, offers product or hair tool recommendations, and attends hair trade shows and similar events.

  • Website & Social Media: Review the hair salon’s website and social media accounts to learn more about their services, read client testimonials, and look at photos of their previous work. Facebook is a particularly great resource for learning more about customer experiences.

  • HaircutAtmosphere: Visit your selected hair salon to inspect for cleanliness and see how busy it is. Look at the clients as too—are they around your age? A clean, modern, busy hair salon with customers in your age bracket is ideal.

  • Prices: Before you make an appointment, talk about the salon’s prices. How much does a full-head hair color cost versus partial highlights and lowlights? Will a completely new haircut cost more than a basic trim? Does length matter? Prices can vary depending on a number of factors, so be as forthcoming as possible. 

  • Approachable Stylists: Before making an appointment, ask to have a consultation with your hairstylist. You should feel comfortable expressing your vision to the stylist, and they should take time to listen to the details and look at any picture references you bring with you. You may want to ask them when they have slower days, so they can take their time during your first appointment.
