It’s all about you (the client):
Remember the golden rule of impressing a client is that the client is the most important person. Pamper your client with little surprise by offering a special discount or complementary treatment. Try to remember small things about your client, for example, what style like or dislike their product allergies if any, etc. Create consistency to maintain their trust in your salon.
Putting the extra effort:
Taking one extra step to create an overwhelming experience for your client can work wonders. Offer your customers snacks or coffee in case the treatment is time-consuming. Keeping spare umbrellas to offer to clients on a sudden rain will create a great impact and also save the whole lot of effort went behind that gorgeous hairdo.
Punctuality is the soul of business:
Time is one of the most important factors, which often gets neglected in salons assuming that clients only visit a salon in leisure time. A client might drop by in urgency to tweeze eyebrow or a clean shaved look before heading to an important event.If the client mentions the urgency prior try rescheduling the appointments to the needful in time. Such a client will always remember your salon and trust you with the best.
Appreciate more to impress:
A lot of salon professionals make a mistake of criticizing the clients to make they feel a need of a treatment. Although, this can go in reverse as one criticizing comment can put down your client’s mood. You can subtly suggest product/treatment/remedy or a take-care tip to the client but in a way that won’t hurt their sentiment. On the other hand, appreciating them for their best feature can make them feel good.
A good humour will get you there:
What is relaxation if there is no laughter? It is always a good idea to crack jokes and keep the environment light with a good humour. Generally, men’s salons are filled with laughter and jokes as it helps the professional to create a rapport with their clients. Make sure you don’t joke about or mention any political views, just to be on a safer side.
