Your appearance is important to you.  After all, it’s the first thing a person will notice when they meet you.  You take great care to make sure that you look more than just good.  Aside from your clothing, your hair is the most important part of your look.  A great salon can help you look your best.

Face it, salons come and go.  Sometimes it seems like when you find a great salon or stylist, the salon suddenly goes out of business, or the stylist moves on, leaving you to begin your search anew.  If you’ve suddenly found yourself without a salon or stylist, here are a few important things to consider when you choose your new salon.

How are they perceived? – No doubt many of your friends have a favorite salon.  There’s no harm in asking them about their experience with their stylist and salon.  In addition to word-of-mouth, the internet has many different ways to determine the quality of what might be your new salon.  Yes, sometimes anecdotal information can be misleading, but it can point out certain trends, good or bad, about a salon.

What services do they offer? – Perhaps you are looking for a salon that specializes in hair care.  When searching, find out if the salon you’re considering offers tanning, facials, or if they are concerned only about your hair.  Chances are, a hair-only salon will feature high-quality, licensed,  stylists than a salon that offers more than hair care.

Does the salon offer a full line of hair-care services? –  Now that you’ve determined that a prospective salon is hair-oriented, look at their list of services.  Do they only offer cuts or styling?  A full service hair salon not only offers those services, but will offer color treatments, extensions, and strengthening/restoring for damaged hair.

Do they cater to the entire family? – Another facet of a full-service hair care salon is who they cater to.  Do they offer cuts for men and kids as well?  Is it possible to make a quick stop for a trim?  Your family’s life won’t always allow a week to wait for an appointment with your salon.

Finally…are they dedicated to providing you with the best customer service? – As a customer, you want to know that your business and time are of the utmost importance.  Your salon should provide you and your family with the highest quality hair care.  A great salon should be affordable, but not cheap.  It should be have flexible scheduling options.  Your new salon should treat you like family.
