5 Things to Know Before Going to the Hair Salon

Putting your trust in a new hair salon can be a scary experience. Whether you are keeping the same hairstyle or changing your hairstyle or color, most of us have a very specific look in mind. We have all heard horror stories or read bad reviews but doing your research and putting trust and treating yourselves to a reputable hair salon can be a heavenly experience. Here are five tips to follow from our top hairdresser at Salon Shique, from our South Yarra / South Melbourne area hair salon, that will definitely ensure that your hair salon experience is a positive one.


A simple Google search on “Hair Salon in South Yarra”, will bring up numerous options. To narrow down the search, reading reviews, search their social media platforms for their creations and ask around. It’s always a great idea to visit the hair salon so you can see what the hairdresser or hair salon looks like, the services they offer (and even more important the price). If you are looking for a reputable Hair Salon in South Yarra / South Melbourne area, a great place to start is Salon Shique. Salon Shique is a one-stop hair salon in South Yarra for all your needs; from precision haircuts, colours to getting the best hair extensions around.


Before heading into the hair salon it is best to have an idea of what you want. A great resource for finding photos of styles and ideas is the internet. Also, make sure you have multiple photos of the style from different angles and it is realistic to your hair type. If the style isn’t exactly what you want, those changes could always be communicated to your hairdresser through the consultation. If you are unsure of what you want or what will look nice, a great hairdresser will always recommend what will look great for your hair type and face shape. At Salon Shique in South Yarra, book a complimentary consultation with an experienced hairdresser and they can design a hairstyle around your personal features and needs.


Depending on the service you intend to receive a good hair salon will always offer a consultation service before the actual date of the main service if you request it. During a consultation clearly, communicate with your hairdresser the style you’re going for. Share the photos of the styles you’re considering with the hairdresser to give them a clear view of what you’re expecting. The hairdresser should also assess the condition of your hair and point out any areas of concern. Your hairdresser may suggest a different style or a slightly different spin on the style you’re going for if they feel the style will be better suited to your face shape or hair type/condition. For example, if you are looking to get hair extensions and you have fragile hair, it is not recommended as it can cause more damage and you won’t get the best hair extensions so an alternate solution can be discussed. At Salon Shique in South Melbourne, your hairdresser will thoroughly examine your hair, provide recommendations and provide the best options for your hair. This is also a good time to establish what the costs are for the services so there are no surprises at the end.


Communication is the key! Be open and honest with your hairdresser as there may be certain things your hairdresser might not know unless you tell them; such as having a tender scalp, if there are any ingredients in hair care products that you are allergic to or reacts poorly and any past experiences you have had. Ensuring your hairdresser is clear on everything will avoid any mishaps and they can exclude anything from the service.


Now that you have done your research, picked out a few styles, went for a consultation, and you’re heading in for your appointment. All that’s left to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the salon experience.

Having a plan and following tips like these are a great way to ensure that you leave the hair salon with a positive experience!
