Finding a hair salon near you can be a challenge, especially if you’re new to an area or don’t know where to start looking. Here are a few tips to help you find a hair salon that meets your needs and is convenient to your location:
Ask for recommendations
If you have friends or family members who live near you, ask them for recommendations on salons they like. They may have personal experience with a particular salon and can give you an idea of the quality of services and the overall atmosphere. Stopping someone to ask them who does their hair is one of the best compliments you can give. In fact, many of our new clients here at Poza Salon hear about us this way. Try it!
There are many websites and directories that can help you find hair salons near you. For example, you can use a search engine like Google and type in “salons near me” or “hair salons near me” to see a list of options. You can also use a directory like Yelp or Google to search for salons in your area.
Check out social media
Many salons have social media pages where they showcase their work and post updates about their services. You can search for salons on platforms like our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to find out more about them and see what others are saying. Even better, you can scroll through to see pictures and videos and culture of any given salon to see if they pass vibe check.
When looking for a hair salon, it’s important to consider the location and convenience for you. If you don’t want to travel too far, look for salons that are within a reasonable distance from your home or workplace. Key tip: using the phrase ‘hair salon near me’ and selecting the map option is the easiest way to establish the distance.
Consider the services and prices
Different salons offer different services and have different pricing structures. Consider what services you’re looking for and what your budget is before deciding. It’s also a good idea to call the salon and ask about their services and prices to make sure they meet your needs. Most high-end salons offer complimentary consultations that give you a better idea of what you’re likely to spend to achieve that look. Even if they cannot give you an exact amount, having a ballpark figure will prevent sticker shock at check-out. Remember, it’s not uncommon to drop $600 or more on gorgeous hair. See our services and pricing.
Before making a decision, be sure to read reviews of the salon you’re considering. You can find reviews on websites like Yelp, Google, and Facebook, as well as on the salon’s own website. Reading reviews can give you an idea of the quality of the salon’s services and the experiences of other customers. That said, take them with a grain of salt, as a former client who skipped that consultation likely had sticker shock and wanted to voice her displeasure loudly. Years ago, we had a woman walk in after hours demanding a service while we were turning off the lights. She proceeded to leave us a nasty review because we wouldn’t turn the lights back on and stay late to do her hair. So please, read reviews with an open mind.
By following these tips, you should be able to find a salon near you that meets your needs and is convenient for you. Don’t be afraid to try out a few different salons until you find one that you love!
