10 Tips For Choosing The Best Hairdressing Salon

Posted on

The quest for the ideal hairdressing salon is often fraught with pitfalls. After all, nobody wants to entrust their hair to anyone. This checklist can help you identify the best hairdresser to meet your expectations: follow these tips to find the salon of your future hairdresser!

1. Wishes and Criteria

Before starting your research, think about what you want and what counts most for you in a hairdressing salon. Are you looking for specific advice? Do you prefer to come unannounced instead of making an appointment? Do you have budget constraints? Concrete criteria will greatly facilitate the search for the ideal exhibition.

2. Reference

To find the best hairdresser, watch the heads around you. Friends and colleagues are a valuable resource for finding the right addresses in town. Listen to the recommendations of your entourage. For example, if you love the hairdo of your friends or colleagues, ask her the salon she attended. If she has had bad experiences before, she will not fail to warn you.

3. Online Survey

Take a look at the website of the show you are interested in: you will generally be able to get an idea of the concept and the services offered without moving. To check your choices, check out other guests' reviews like noscrunchie and tressfree and the hairstyles they shared on Facebook and other social networks.

4. Price List

Some hairdressing salons charge extra services. Carefully study the price list beforehand: this will prevent you from having to give up a specific service or to annoy you at the checkout. You will also know if there are any discounts or special packages if you are a student for example.

5. A visit

If possible, make an appointment directly on site. This will allow you to examine the living room with a magnifying glass. Is the atmosphere pleasant? Is the place clean and welcoming? These are already very useful first clues in the quest for the ideal hairdresser.

6. Making appointments

When you are asked for the name of your favorite hairdresser when you make an appointment, it's a good sign! This certainly means that this hairdresser works with a clientele of regulars who comes back regularly. Take the opportunity to ask questions on specialized hairdressers in each field to determine which book for coloring, a cut, a bun, etc.

7. The team

During your flash visit, pay attention to all the members of the team: are you on the same wavelength? Do you find them sympathetic? In this case, chances are you will feel comfortable in this room. Also take a look at their hairstyles

8. Discuss

To make a first impression, you can first reserve an appointment for advice and diagnosis, without cutting or styling. A professional hairdresser worthy of the name must take the time to study your scalp and your hair type, but also ask you questions about the problems you encounter and your routine care. This stage also makes it possible to get acquainted while receiving very useful advice.

9. Clearly express your expectations

When something does not work or when you are not satisfied with the result, it is not always the fault of the hairdresser. You may have misconceptions about the result, or you have chosen a cup that, in the end, does not really fit or suit your hair type. That's why you should not hesitate to bombard your hairdresser with questions. For example, do not just ask if you would fringe good, but what fringe is for you (tapered, long, etc.). Then you decide. You can also bring a photo that will help your hairdresser understand your expectations. A real professional must not only take into account your hair and the shape of your head but also your overall look. The new hairstyle must match your style, and the new coloring will flatter your skin complexion.

10. Continuing Education

Continuous learning is the prerequisite for staying on top. Many hairdressers continue to develop their skills and learn the latest trends by participating in trainings, seminars and even contests. If you see awards or diplomas posted in the living room, you have certainly come across a good address.
