Are you the kind of girl that spends half her time and money on salon appointments? Are you more worried about getting to the salon on time than to your college lecture? If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, then this is for you. Do you know the unwritten rules for clients that visit salons frequently? Your favourite manicurist or hairstylist will never tell you this, but this is the code of conduct for all you salon regulars.
- Do not be late
- Take reference images
- Have a running conversation with your stylist
- Pay attention to personal hygiene
- Ask questions and understand how to care for your hair/skin at home
Do not be late
15 minutes might not seem too much to you, but by being late by even 15 minutes might throw your salon specialist’s schedule off. Call at least 1-2 hours prior to your appointment to inform them of your delay.
Take reference images
Put a little thought into your next haircut or your next manicure and go with a plan. If you are getting makeup done, go with images of what you like, If you are getting a new haircut, go with examples of what kind of cut you want. This helps the stylist to understand your requirements.
Have a running conversation with your stylist
Have you ever been in the salon chair and dozed off while the stylist cut your hair and woken up and got a scare? Whether you are getting your brows threaded, hair cut or getting makeup done, make sure you keep checking your look from time to time to avoid rude shocks later! This way you can have total control of the look that the technician is working on.
Pay attention to personal hygiene
You don’t want to run straight to the salon for a haircut soon after a workout session, would you? Make it easier for your salon specialist to work with you, by making sure your hair is clean for him to handle. If you are going for a waxing session, make sure your BO is under control. Your salon specialist will not point it out, but if you present smelly underarms for her to wax, you will soon drop down to the last person on her ‘favourite clients’ list. We love the Rexona Women Powder Dry Roll On for dry, sweat-free underarms.
Ask questions and understand how to care for your hair/skin at home
Your new haircut looks smashing when you step out of the salon, but when you wash your hair and try to set it the same way, it turns out to be a mess? This happens way too often and the best way is to ask questions and understand how to set your hair and what tools to use. Same goes with coloured hair, waxed skin and facials. Understand what to do and what not to do and how to care for them.
