This is a very long list for me so this blog post will have number one of a possible 100.
1: Hair Salons seem to have a hairdresser revolving door.
I am not sure if salon owners realise what makes a good salon. Contrary to popular belief, it is not the fancy shop front and swiveling chairs. (I am not disputing the fact that looks matter or how would we explain explain the cute but dumb guys always getting dates.)
So dearest salon owners, I will spell it out for you THE HAIRDRESSERS make the salon. I would like to go to a salon and find the same good hairdressers. If I go in and someone does my hair really well, I would love to find them there next time. I hate to go back and have somebody else attempt to recreate what they never even saw as they worked somewhere else at the time.
The only staff members salons seem to retain are the salon owners’ cousins and friends who are asked to wash your hair, like hair care is a genetic thing. Hair care is a skill and should be considered as such.
So salons, please try and keep your staff happy in order to retain them because if they are good (which we presume is why you hired them), they will end up at another salon.(Probably the grubby looking one down the road)
So if you want loyal customers, we want you to have loyal staff.
Let us know what you hate about salons. Add your comments, or add your tweets to #thingsihateaboutsalons
