4 tips to make your salon visit a breeze
A salon visit can take you by surprise if you're not familiar with the etiquette! Here are four tips to help you prepare yourself.
Pinterest it: Use apps like Pinterest and Instagram to create virtual moodboards. This will ensure you get the exact look you’re going for and lessens the chance for error, as the stylist can ascertain beforehand if the hairstyle is achievable.
Research, research: Some salons are generalists, while others specialise in various styles and techniques. Do your research prior to your salon visit to avoid disappointment in case your chosen salon is unable to execute your desired look.
Book a consultation: Never underestimate the importance of a consultation. Book one in prior to your visit, especially for treatments like colour or relaxers. This is an opportunity to map out an aftercare plan and ask any questions you may have.
Stick to follow up appointments: Aftercare matters. Try and stick to the suggested followup appointments after your salon visit to keep your hair in optimum health. Before you leave the salon always book in your next appointment.
