We've taken a look round at some of the hair styles being worn by celebs this autumn as a bit of a guide as to what styles your clients may be asking for in the run up to the party season.
A visit to the local hairdressing salon or barber shop used to mean coffee or tea and a magazine, getting your hair done was seen as just another thing on the To Do list. Today however, getting your hair cut, coloured, or styled is seen as an essential self-care ritual, a chance to escape the stresses of day-to-day life and be pampered for an hour or two.
In response to this hair salons have had to reposition themselves as a place to go to be spoiled and pampered so that you look and feel amazing. Successful salons now offer an all-round service experience to their clients, young and old.
We’ve put together some examples of the additional services offered by salons that are keeping their customers happy and coming back for more. Competition can be fierce so standing out from the crowd is crucial.
