Are You Practicing Proper Salon Etiquette


With most things you do in life, there are some basic etiquette rules you are expected to follow. You don't loudly summon your waiter from across the dining room when you're in a restaurant. You always tip the taxi driver unless you have terrible service. But what about at the salon? As it turns out, there are some important etiquette rules you are expected to follow there, too.

1. Be on time.

Your stylist probably has a very busy schedule. They carefully overlap clients who are getting color with those who are just getting cuts so that they can squeeze as much as possible into their day. If one person is late, that throws their whole schedule off, perhaps for the rest of that day. Plan on getting to the salon 10 minutes before your appointment so you have time to check in with the receptionist. If an emergency happens and you'll be late, call. The receptionist will tell you whether it is better to come in late or to reschedule.

2. Wash your hair, or have it washed.

Wash your hair either the day you go to the salon or the day before. If you do not have time to wash your own hair, pay the extra few dollars to have it done at the salon. Your stylist will have a hard time doing a good job of cutting and styling dirty hair. You'll like your results much more if you start with clean hair.

3. Know what you want.

It's okay if you have some questions about whether or not a certain style will work for your hair. If you ave two or three styles you like and are having trouble choosing from, then by all means, ask your stylist for some input. What you should not do, however, is walk into the salon with no idea what you want. You might think you're giving your stylist creative freedom, but what you're doing is really frustrating because your stylist has no way of knowing what you like. Bring some pictures to your appointment, and be prepared with thoughts of what you want your hair to look like.

4. Leave a tip.

If you are satisfied with the service over all, it is customary to leave your stylist about a 15% tip. You can leave extra if your stylist went out of their way to fix really damaged hair or botched color, or if you requested a service that took a lot of time and effort. Remember that if you thank your stylist with a good tip, they will repay you with continued quality service going forward.

Accessorizing Your Evening Gown

My name is Melinda Franklin, and I want to thank you for visiting my website. My husband Joseph is an executive in the firm where he works. This means we have three to five annual formal affairs to attend. I will be the first to admit that I’m not the most fashion savvy person. For years, I would find and wear what I thought was the perfect evening gown for each event, yet never felt quite as lovely as I thought I should. I would admire the other women and wonder why I didn’t feel as stunning as they looked. Then it finally dawned on me --it was my lack of accessories. The other women wore earrings and necklaces that completed their outfits. I haphazardly put on jewelry and accessories that I knew were mundane. I would like to share some accessorizing tips I’m using now.
