Salon Etiquette for the Client
Nov 16, 2001 - © Marlin Bressi
In the past, I have written about how to find a good hairstylist, what qualities to look for and how to identify a really great stylist. This week, I'm going to give some advice on how to be a good customer. These tips will make your next trip to the salon more effective and a better overall experience.
The vast majority of salon clients mean well, and have good intentions; but even the most well-meaning customer can cause distractions that may compromise the quality of the stylist's work. I am not blaming anything on the clients, of course, but the process of cutting and styling hair requires some basic "salon etiquette".
Let's begin by examining the appointment-making process. If you have a difficult time remembering appointments, write down the date and time on a piece of paper and place it where you won't forget about it. Missed appointments (referred to as "no-shows" in salon lingo), seriously cripple a salon's ability to run on time. As a result, the receptionists and stylists have to re-work all of their standing appointments to accomodate for the loss. Some salons require a client to notify the salon if they are running late or will miss their appointment. If the salon hasn't been notified within a reasonable amount of time, they may impose a cancellation fee. This is the same thing a doctor's office will do if you are a no-show for an appointment. Failing to notify the salon is irresponsible, rude, and unnecessary. All it takes is a few seconds to dial a phone number. When a client makes an appointment, the stylist has to block out at least 45 minutes of his or her time. This time is a valuable commodity in the salon. Just about every salon will understand if you need to change or re-schedule your appointment, and will make the necessary changes without any problems. Totally ignoring an appointment is the ultimate expression of disregard for a stylist's time.
Clients should also make the attempt to stay up-to-date on all the current trends and styles. This means knowing the names of the cuts and styles. If you aren't sure how to describe how you want your hair done, it is advisable to bring a picture. Pictures are indeed worth a thousand words. They give a visual image of what you want, and most stylists appreciate it when you bring in at least one picture of the style you had in mind.
Once you get into the chair, there are some things a client should do to make the entire service run smoothly. Before anything else, remove any earrings that may get in the way. The client should also be wearing old or inexpensive clothing if a color service is being performed. Glasses should be taken off right before the stylist begins a service. Cell phones should also be turned off. There is nothing in the world, short of a medical emergency, that can't wait until after the haircut has been done. When a stylist has to stop while a client answers the phone, it causes a break in concentration. Would you stop a doctor in the middle of surgery to answer your cell phone? Or interrupt a judge during a court hearing? How about telling a priest to put his sermon on hold while you answer your cell phone? Have the same level of respect for our profession that you have for others. Enough said about that subject.
Phyical posture is very important. Many clients have the habit of crossing their legs during a haircut. When you cross your legs, it causes the upper body to shift, making one shoulder lower than the other. It's easy to see how this can cause an uneven haircut. Some people get very sleepy during a haircut, and their heads begin to droop. This can also cause an uneven cut. Try to sit upright with your back perpendicular to the floor, pressed fully against the back of the chair. Place both arms on the armrest, and keep both feet planted on the footrest. Try to keep your head straight.
Parents can also be a potential distraction. There are times when I'm doing a child's haircut, and the mother or father is standing directly behind me, so close that I can feel their breath on my neck. Then there are parents who like to give step-by-step instructions on how to cut hair. It is extremely annoying. I sometimes feel like finding out where they work, going to their job and standing right behind them telling them how to do their job. Please, have some consideration for the stylist. They need space to do their work, they need silence for concentration, and they do know how to do their jobs. That's why they went to school. More bad children's haircuts are caused by over-zealous parents than unskilled stylists. I'm sure everyone knows how hard it is to read a newspaper when someone is looking over your shoulder, or how difficult it is to go to the bathroom if someone is breathing down your neck, or even how nervous it makes a person to drive down the highway when the car right behind them happens to be a police cruiser.
If the client has children, they should consider leaving them at home. Most children do not see hair salons as a fun-filled environment. Usually after twenty minutes their attention span runs out, and they begin to act up. A hair salon is filled with sharp instruments, dangerous chemicals, and hot curling irons. To a bored youngster, a salon can be a potentially dangerous place. The stylist should not have to stop what he or she is doing so that a client can discipline her children. It compromises the quality of the stylist's work, and is a distraction to other salon clients. Keep in mind that a salon is a professional working environment, no different from a veterinarians office or a clothing store. It is not a children's playground.
If all of these guidelines are followed, you will get the best service for your money, and you will most likely be in and out in a snap. The little distractions are the ones that can be easily removed, and as a result, both you and your stylist will be happy.
