There are several reasons why you might be looking for a new hair salon, you may have moved to a new area, you may have become dissatisfied with your current hairdresser, or perhaps your stylist has moved or is on maternity leave. Whatever the reason, you find yourself in the situation where you need to find a new salon and a new stylist and someone you will have confidence in to do a good job with your hair. You could be spoiled for choice and here, Martinez Hair Salon located in East Sussex near to Uckfield, Heathfield, Crowborough and Lewes gives you some top tips for finding the perfect salon.

Things To Do To Find The Right Salon

  • Ask family, friends and colleagues for recommendations
  • Search online for salons in your area or near to where you work
  • Check out the salon’s website and social media feeds
  • Book a consultation
  • Think of things that are a ‘must’ for you in choosing the right hair salon

Ask For Recommendations

A personnel recommendation is a good place to start. Ask friends, family and colleagues where they go, and if you see someone whose hair you really like, don’t be afraid to ask them which salon they use. And if you do get a hair salon recommended, ask which stylist they would recommend.

Search Online For Local Salons

Decide on the location where you would like to have your hair done and search online. Do you want to go to someone local to where you live or would you prefer a salon close to your place of work?

Look At The Salon’s Website

If you have a recommendation, or some salons that you have found on the Internet, the next step is to check out the salon’s website. A professional looking website will speak volumes and you will have an opportunity to see pictures and discover if it’s modern and up to date. You can also see which social media networks they are using, and click on the links to their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter sites.

Book A Consultation

It’s a good sign if the salon is helpful about you coming in for a consultation. You will then have an opportunity to meet your stylist, and see if she/he could be the right fit for you and you can have a good look at the salon and get a feel for the atmosphere. First impressions can be a good indication.

If you are not sure what you want in terms of style or colour, see how helpful they are in coming up with ideas and advice. And if you do decide to book an appointment, you don’t need to go mad the first time, just book a simple wash, cut and blow-dry.

Other Things For Consideration

  • Is car parking available? Is there a charge?
  • Are you made to feel immediately welcome?
  • Is Wi-Fi available and is it free?
  • Are complimentary drinks included?
  • Are reading journals and magazines up-to-date?
  • Does the salon have flexible opening times including evening appointments?
  • Are high quality hair products used?
  • Does it offer hair designs for special occasions, such as weddings?
