This blog post addresses salon services and how to support local businesses in your neighborhood and beyond. I have a favorite professional nail care center that I frequent for nail and eyelash extensions services.
I wanted to get an early start, so I arrived in the salon at 10:10 a.m. Receiving 3 separate services, I was out by 11:50a.m.
This was right up my alley… No waiting and great service! My service included:
I have been in the beauty industry for over 30+ years and have taught these type of services along with the recommended times of completion and each service averaged 25 to 35 minutes at most. This is on point!
I was pleasantly pleased with the services provided. While getting brow waxing and lash extensions, one of the owners explained to me the issues they face with the business being seasonal and not being as lucrative as one may think. Credit card services and hidden fees to the merchant was a concern for the salon owner.
It is tough operating a business, along with the overhead, staff compensation and customer profits. Even though, I received a quality salon service. I was concerned about the business being successful year round.
Some creative tips in supporting your local businesses:
- Frequently patronage the business
- Refer friends and family
- Spread the word
- Plan a spa day with the girls
- Do a family night
- Keep it creative (visit the salon in the middle of the week)
You may ask …What’s in it for you? It helps keep the community vital, prosperous and respected by patronizing your local businesses.
