Last time our prom tip of the month was all about gathering hair inspiration so that when the time comes to go to the salon, you’ll be armed and ready with magazine clippings, photos, and a head of hair ready to be beautified. This week we’re keeping the focus on hair with one of the most important prom steps: finding a reliable salon.
In the prom world, your hair holds just as much importance as finding your perfect dress and shoes. After all, you’ll be looking at these prom pictures for years to come, so you want to make sure your hair is at its best. That’s where the salon comes in and that’s what makes finding the perfect one so important. To make sure you’re going to the best and most reliable one around here’s a few things to consider:
If you don’t have a regular stylist, ask around. Whether you’re talking to the girls at school or asking your relatives and friend’s mothers, you’ll be sure to find at least a few options to consider. The best part about asking around? Word of mouth travels fast, so if there’s someone that’s a great hairdresser, people will know about it!
Scout It Out
If word of mouth isn’t getting you anywhere, try the Internet. Google reviews and Yelp reviews are often a great way to find honest reviews of places in your area. Beware: not all experiences are good, so sometimes it’s best to take the bad ones with a grain of salt if most of the reviews are positive.
Visit the Salon
It’s important to build a relationship with the salon before the big day, so whether you book an appointment for a quick trim or book a consultation beforehand, you want to make sure your stylist is reliable and will listen to your opinions. You know what they say: you never know until you try it out for yourself, so make sure you’ve been to the salon and have tried it out before booking the final appointment.
