The Truth Behind High-priced Hair Salons
Have you ever walked out of a salon wondering whether or not you have just been overcharged for a simple cut? Many salons pride themselves on using high quality products, thus raising the rates for their customers. Unfortunately, not all salons can be trusted. I am here to share some pearls of wisdom so you may get the most bang for your buck at your next salon visit!
The hair salon industry has seen major growth over the last couple years. Salons, spas, and blow out bars have swept the nation, promising customers lasting results and top-notch products. Their increase in popularity has opened numerous avenues of competition and competing prices. Many salons advertise their use of high quality products in order to justify soaring prices. The harsh reality is, however, that these products have the potential of leaving lasting damage due to their mid- grade quality.
These few tips will help ensure you are getting your money’s worth at each salon visit:
1. Do not be afraid to question the stylist. It is their job to be knowledgeable about the products they are using. If they cannot give a sufficient answer, this may be a red flag that you are being deceived.
2. Research, research, research! The best way to learn about anything worth spending your money on is looking up the best products beforehand. If research is done properly, it will be very easy to distinguish worthwhile products from those that cause thinning, dulling, and aging.
3. Be a salon detective! Pay close attention to the products around the salon and in the back rooms. It is best if the products are displayed publicly, with labels clearly shown and ingredients indicated on the bottle.
As always, if you have any questions regarding the products your salon is using or wish to speak with a stylist you can trust, make an appointment at my Fort Lauderdale office and we would be happy to assist you!
