It is not easy picking the best hair stylist. My own journey has taken me from one salon to the next. I was not satisfied with what these hairdressers were doing with my hair.
It took me a while before I finally settled on the best Melbourne based hairdressers. The process can be very tiring. That is why I am going to share with you some tips and tricks I have learned in my own search for the best hairdressers in Australia.
Listen to What People are Saying
You might think that ‘word of mouth’ marketing is already dead. This is not always true. I experienced first-hand how referrals can be very powerful tools in one’s search for something.
When I was in the initial stages of a hairdresser search, I did not pay attention to what people in the office were telling me. I did not even bother listening to the advice of my friends and some family members.
One of the reasons why I did not listen to them is that I didn’t like their hairstyle. I know that if I go to their hairdresser, I might get the same style for my hair. I didn’t want that.
Looking back, I now see the wisdom in listening to what other people are saying. If you like the style of their hair, then you’ve probably found the best hairdresser for you.
If not, you will almost certainly have an idea of the skill of the hair stylist. This will help you make the decision whether to give this hairdresser a shot or not.
Use the Internet
I know most of us spend the better part of the day in front of our computer screen. When on a break, we are still logged on into our respective mobile devices.
You can use this preoccupation with online activities to make a shortlist of the best hairdressers in your area.It doesn’t have to be the generic search engine platform.
You can also utilise your contacts on social media. Check out what is trending on social media platforms. There are also online community forums that you can join. These can help you gain information on the best hairdressers in the city.
The beauty of an internet-connected environment is that you get to learn more about someone without ever meeting him or her in person. Hairdressers and salons are businesses that have to make a good impression. It is their only way they can survive in a very competitive environment.
That is why they will do almost anything to provide exceptional hair styling services to their clients. You don’t need to meet them in person. You can read their reviews on different platforms in the internet
Check for recurring themes about the hairdresser or the salon. Are these clients saying the same thing?
Set an Appointment
The only way you can be sure that the reviews are accurate is by trying out the services of one of these salons. My suggestion is for you to make a list of all the potential ‘candidates’ for the best hairdresser search.
Rank them according to their services and what people are saying about them. You can also include the review ratings. You should be able to get the top 3. At least, this is a lot better than going to each and every one of these hair salons.
Set up an appointment with each of these salons. It is best to strike a conversation with the hairdresser himself or herself. It is critical that you share the same viewpoint when it comes to your hairstyle. Check also the state of the salon.
It should be clean and well-organised. Check the services, too. My suggestion is to always go for a salon that can offer you more than the basic haircut.
Choosing the best hairdresser for you can be tiring, especially if you have a lot of options to pick from. Hopefully, these tips and tricks can make it a lot easier for you.
