When you are new to an area, it can feel like an overwhelming experience in lots of ways. You have to set up a whole new network of people and places that you didn’t know previously, and choosing a new hair salon is no different. Whether you are new to an area and need a salon or are changing salons in your same area, getting to know your new hair salon doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. We here at Salon Povera help new clients every day and would love to give you some tips that can help make the transition easier.
First, don’t expect to go with a dramatic change right off the bat. Just like any other relationship, your relationship with your hair stylist and hair salon needs a little bit of time to gain some trust! Start off with a few gradual changes before you decide to do a dramatic one so you have a little bit of history built up and will feel confident in your cut.
Second, make good use of photos. All of those style magazines or pictures that you have saved on your phone? Now is the time to whip those out! A new hair salon with experienced stylists can look through these photos, ask you questions about why you like the cut, what appeals to you, what you’re looking for, and other questions to help you find a style that you’ll love for your own look.
Finally, don’t discount your gut! If you just don’t feel comfortable in a salon or with a certain stylist, then don’t be afraid to cancel your appointment or go elsewhere! The stylist’s chair should be a place of comfort and confidence, not fear and anxiety.
