You may not believe it, but people actually do not go to a hair salon just to get their hair done! There is a whole process behind it and an entire ritual involved in a new hairdo. That is why your salon should be as cozy, warm and inviting as possible because your clients are not just looking for a pair of scissors and some hair spray, but a safe haven.
Spending a few hours in it should, therefore, be an enjoyable experience for them and a chance to forget the troubles of the outside world. There are many things you can do to achieve that special atmosphere and organize your salon in a new, pleasurable and exciting way, and here just a few that you may try.
Information on a Board
Every salon has something unique about it and all of them offer promotions, deals and special services from time to time. In order to advertise these pieces of information, you have to come up with a board of some sort, and most people have a tendency to go with a chalkboard nowadays. It is visually appealing, interesting and unusual – and you can make it on your own and decorate it with a frame you like. It will blend in with your interior decorations nicely and be the talk of the salon.
Store Your Coats
Big salons always have a lot of clients and with all of them sometimes present at the same time, the problem with storage space can occur. This is particularly visible in the winter when everybody is wearing heavy coats. That is why you need to organize a coat storage cabinet, label it and make it accessible and easy to handle. Your clients will know that their coats are safe there and will be calmer.
Eliminate Stale Air
If you want your clients to really enjoy themselves in your salon, you must not allow inside air to go stale. This will turn potential visitors away and create a bad reputation for your business. What you can do to prevent this is introduce air cleaning plants such as aloe vera or English ivy, or, on the other hand, use one of those gorgeous timber ceiling fans. These will keep the air constantly flowing and are hence not only highly practical and useful, but can also look good and enhance the overall aesthetics of the entire place.
Play with Colors
If you want people to feel good and peaceful, you need to create a peaceful atmosphere, and the easiest way to do that is properly painting your walls. There are generally two ways to go when it comes to this – create monochrome walls using colors that are soothing and calming or simply choose a wallpaper that produces a similar effect. With so much space on the walls, there are numerous ways to go, but try to limit your creativity to two or three colors the most.
Mini Fridge for a Huge Impact
Every salon has quite a few hidden and unused spaces that you do not know what to do with. One of the best ways to use them is by installing a mini fridge – it does not take much room and will come in handy. With it, your clients will be able to keep their beverages cold and you can offer them a refreshing drink every once in a while.
Some of the other things you can do to update your salon are repainting the cabinets, add a stylish chandelier and, why not, set up an open Wi-Fi network for your employees and clients.
