Choosing which beauty salon to frequent can be tricky. Not only is there an incredibly high volume of salons across the nation, but also quality of service varies greatly for each. It's often hard to tell the difference between a poorly run salon and a top quality establishment, as many poorly run salons appear normal on the surface.
Whether you're looking for a salon to frequent for the long run or just a one-time visit, there are a number of ways to gauge the quality of a salon before you part with your hard earned cash for their services.
1. Check the online reviews of the salon. Your first stop should be www.yelp.com.au. You'll be able to find in depth reviews for most of the salons across the nation on Yelp. Customers weigh in on their experiences at the salon, and you should be able to gauge from their comments and reviews whether this is the salon for you. They even have reviews of the individual stylists and salon workers, so you'll know who to book your appointment with if you do choose the salon in question.
2. Read what the consumers have to say. Another great site to check out is www.choice.com/au. Although they may not have the wide range of businesses that can be found on Yelp, this site will have reviews of the products used in the salon. After checking out the salon's website and taking a look at what products and equipment they use, you can cross check on this site to make sure the products are the top of the line.
3. Take It To Twitter. So you have a couple hundred followers on Twitter? Chances are many of them will be friends from your area, so a simple tweet asking about the quality of a particular salon will most likely bring you the feedback you need. Also remember to type the salon name into the Twitter search engine so you can check out a history of the chatter on the salon. This is a great way to gain insight into consumer's views of the salon beyond the consumer sites.
4. Take It To Facebook. Just like with Twitter, you're sure to have many friends in your area on this site, so a simple post inquiring into the quality of a salon is sure to bring about a good amount of first person feedback on the subject.
5. Google It. Just typing the name of the salon into Google is bound to pick up a cross section of opinions on the salon from across a diverse range of sites, message boards, and other sources.
In the age of the Internet, checking on the quality of salons is easy. And remember, you can always pick up the phone and ask questions to the salon workers themselves, or go take a look at the location. With the right combination of on and offline research, you should be able to gain all the insight you need to make your salon choice.
