How to Get the Best Treatment at the Hair Salon
One of the best things to do at the salon is to put away your phone.
What's the secret to having a successful day at the hair salon? Step one, put away your phone!
"If you're getting a haircut and your head's pointed down the entire time, it's 100 percent going to affect the final shape,” Min Kim, the master color specialist at Butterfly Studio Salon in New York, told Inside Edition.
Kim says it's okay to bring a photo of the look you're going for, but be realistic by focusing on the hair style and structure, not the model’s face.
Experts say to avoid booking an appointment on Fridays and Saturdays if you can, since stylists may be overbooked and tired. Instead, aim for early to mid-week; Wednesday is one of the best days. When it comes to timing, try to land an appointment in the middle of the day, which tends to be a salon's least busy time.
At all salons, common courtesy and respect go a long way, and that includes being on time for your appointment. Some salons even keep notes about how clients treat staff, so to get the best treatment, be courteous.
"You have to be nice to front desk [staff] and assistants," one stylist said. "Don't forget to tip assistants!"
In the end, your stylist wants you to be happy with the final look, so if you're not happy, speak up.
"It's really about honest and direct communication. At least give the salon a chance to make the situation better," Kim said.
