Research & Talk
Your smartphone is your best friend here.
If you’re new to an area and want to find the best hair salon, or even local hair salon, do your research. A simple search for best hair salon Brisbane or hairdresser Ormiston will produce thousands of results. But every salon has the same blue hyperlink on that search engine results page. How do you distinguish between them all?
To start with, check various sites online and check out their reviews. Just remember though, people are more likely to vent their frustrations online for negative experiences, whereas they seldom take the time and effort to write a review for positive experiences unless encouraged to do so.
Once you have found a quality salon, give them a call. Talk to the stylists or receptionist and see what they are like. If they are happy to give you advice over the phone, and have a friendly manner that is helpful as well – you could be on to a winner. Don’t be discouraged if they give you advice only to a certain point. Hair is one of those “it depends” kind of services everyone’s hair is different and can be at different stages of health. More often than not, the hair stylist will need to physically see and touch your hair.
Whether you are looking for a colourist, cut technician or shampoo and set specialist, go straight to the source: your professional local salon.
