Find A Hair Salon While You Are Away
Finding a hair salon when you out of town this holiday season
It’s so enjoyable to head back to where you grew up for the holidays. Or maybe you are taking some time to enjoy someone else’s hometown or even taking a vacation instead of celebrating Christmas the traditional way. Whatever you are doing this holiday season, sometimes we are in such a hurry to pack and get things done that we don’t have time to head to our favorite local hair salon.
Once you reach your destination and have a few days to unwind and decompress, it may be time to find a salon to help with your tired hair. You never want to step into a salon uninformed. You may just want a reinvigorating blow-out, quick trim or even a full styling session, whatever your desire, you still need to make sure you are going to someone reputable.
So what is the best way to choose a salon when you are in an unfamiliar city? Just like traveling to a new place, you can always count on the local residents for the inside track of just about everything so why not asking about a good hair salon? If you spot eye-catching hair on a store clerk, restaurant hostess or anyone local whose hair you admire, don’t be afraid to chat them up and ask where they have their hair styled. Sometimes it’s best to trust the natives because who knows a city better than the people who live there?
If you are visiting relatives, who better than to trust than your own family members? Ask who they use and even if they will take you. If you go with someone who is a regular it will put you as well as the stylist at ease. A day of pampering never hurt anyone, even right before the holidays. Offer to treat your family member to a blowout or manicure for taking you. Now you are killing two birds with one stone: getting your hair done and checking a Christmas present off your list!
Of course, you can always Google salons in the area you are in and find out anything about a salon and/or stylist. Go to the salon website or Facebook page, look at the pictures of the stylists and read comments and reviews. 80% of salon customers trust online reviews as much as referrals and Google, Bing, Yelp, and Facebook lead the pack. These days, any salon or stylist worth trusting with your hair will have a solid social media footprint.
If your hair needs help this holiday season and you are rushing to get out the door to visit family and friends in another city or state, don’t fret! Just worry about getting there and then tackle the salon search once you reach your destination. If you are coming to Hillsborough, NJ, let the experts at Legends Salon be your holiday hair gurus.
