I’m sure a lot of you have been there, the busy walk-in hair salons. You walk in and hopefully you were welcomed pleasantly enough and hopefully you didn’t have to wait very long before you were wisked back to a station for your brief consultation on what you would like to do with your hair. Maybe you got the haircut you wanted, maybe not. The thing is that those salons are not designed to give you personal one on one attention. It isn’t the stylists fault really, the faster they cut your hair the more money they make. Can you blame them?
It might be time for you to get away from the large impersonal hair salons. The trick is to find a small one person salon who will cater to your specific needs and more importantly will listen when you have concerns. The hair salons that take walk-ins can be ultra busy and really don’t have time to give you the personal attention that you need. Finding that one stylist that will give you their undivided attention makes you feel even better than just the new hair-do. The “Mom and Pop” type salons where you receive personalized service by the owner, the one person who must perform to high standards, because his/her business depends on it. In bigger salons, it is easier for the hair stylist to cast off questions and client desires, because he/she will always have more clients. Wouldn’t you rather have a stylist that takes a personal interest in what you want?
Developing a relationship with your hair stylist is very important. A good hair stylist will study your hair and ask you questions about what you like and don’t like about your hair so they can help you achieve the best style for you. When you have a stylist that takes a personal interest in how you look and feel, that is when you get the quality hair treatment and service you are paying for.
