5 Ways For Hair Salons To Go the Extra Mile In Customer Entertainment

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.

Messed-up pony plaits were all the rage at London Fashion Week AW14. Plaits are the perfect recipe for a carefree, ready-to-wear look. We witnessed everything from "elegantly feral" woven plaits at Kinder Aggugini to woven rope braids at Jean-Pierre Bragazna.

So, for this look we're going to Giles SS14. Perfectly coiffed yet unkempt manes were displayed at the show.

Gentle quiffs with relaxed beach-ready side plaits are the perfect look to recreate as daywear. If you've never tried one, here's a simple tutorial and if your clients ask how it's done, here's a page you can point them to.
