“You Get The Best Service Ever, Or It’s Free!”
Mistake #1: You pick a salon based only on price.
The old adage is true: “You get what you pay for.” This is especially true when choosing a salon. If you want the best services you should decide to deal with a salon because of the overall value you receive, NOT because they are the lowest price.
Here’s why: Value = Quality + Service + Price
It is impossible for any business in any industry to offer the cheapest price, have the highest quality, and provide the best service all at the same time.
Total value is all three: Quality, Service, and Price.
- Cheap salons don’t usually stand behind their work if there is a mistake. Sure, those salons might charge you less, but how will they treat you when you are not happy? To give the cheapest price they usually have low-wage, inexperienced employees with a license to practice but little or no real-world skills. They also cut corners by using cheaper products. The end result is “you get half of what you pay for.” And the little bit of money you save ends up costing you more in the long run, especially if you have to miss work because you’re locked in your room crying for 3 days after getting “butchered.” Believe me, there is a saying I always tell my clients: “The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten ...”
- A salon that offers the lowest prices often has to compensate for being cheap with quantity. Not quality. Your salon experience is anything but relaxing when you are being herded like a sheep waiting for your turn to be shorn and then sent on your way. Many times these salons don’t even wash your hair; it’s just wet down with a spray bottle, and when you’re through they usually send you out with soaked hair. It’s tough to evaluate the end result when you can’t see it.
- And the final reason why picking the cheapest salon is a problem relates back to the low-wage, inexperienced stylists that are usually employed at these types of salons. Anyone can go through the schooling and have a license, but it’s the finishing schools and spending the time and money on furthering education and developing talent that really makes a “stylist.”
If you really care about keeping your hair in optimum health, whether you want to look polished and professional or stylish and trendy, whether you are interested in color that can enhance your natural beauty or turn you into a vibrant vixen, and if you want to be pampered, treated with kid gloves and learn beauty “secrets” from experienced experts, then don’t choose a salon based on price.
Mistake #2: You think all salons are the same, but in truth every salon is different.
- Ask what type of training and experience the stylists have.
- Ask how much time they will spend with you before the appointment.
- Ask to see pictures of their work.
- Ask to read testimonials of past clients.
- Ask any other questions that are unique to your needs.
Mistake #3: You frequent several different salons.
Price is important. But price should not be more important than good quality and good service.
