There are over 300,000 hairdressers in Singapore. Recent studies have revealed that the number of hair stylists in Singapore increases in an exponential order daily. With this rise and emergence of new hair stylists daily how does one get to find the perfect hair stylist?
It is very easy to find a hair salon nowadays but the most challenging part is getting to select the right one that suits your taste. There are many factors to consider before making your selection.
Just last week a friend of us who is on vacation in Singapore registered her displeasure about a bad salon experience she had with one of the hair dressers here in Singapore because she did not know where and how to find a perfect hair stylist close by. She was not really impressed by the service she got.
Her ordeal inspired us to come up with these steps that will help individuals find the perfect hair stylist near them.
- Know exactly what you want
We personally feel that the very first step to finding a perfect hair stylist or colorist that suits you is by knowing exactly what you want. The truth of the matter is that if you don’t know exactly what you are looking for even when you have found it you will not know. Knowing exactly what you want here entails knowing the kind of style you want to make. Knowing the exact style, you want to make helps you to channel all your energy in search of the hair stylist who is experienced and vast in doing that particular style. For example, any salon you come across that does not specialize in the kind of style you want is definitely not a perfect choice.
- Taking advantage of social media
In this age and time, the social media is a very powerful tool you can leverage on to get a perfect hair stylist who will give you exactly what you want. With the likes of Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook, you can use hashtags to search for hairstylists near you. Different pictures will pop up that you will use to access and gauge the level of competence and excellence of the hairstylist that posted the images of their recent work. I recommend using the following hashtags: #salonsnearme, #hairdressersingapore, #Curlyhairsalonsingapore, #HairsalonSingapore, #ExpathairsalonsSingapore
These hashtags will lead you to the pages of different hair stylists and you will have the opportunity to view their profile and portfolio. You will also view comments and reviews that will help you to make the best selection.
- Using google search
When it comes to finding the perfect hair stylist that will suit you, using google search to locate one near you can be one of the best options you could consider. Search for hair salon near me on google. One of the benefits of using google search is that it streamlines your search and options to just hair saloons close to your area or locality.
The only limitation with using google search to find the perfect hair salon is that if the salon does not have a functional website, it will be very difficult for you to locate them or getting any relevant information about them.
- Do your own background Findings (Consultation)
The power of consultation cannot be over emphasized when it comes to getting the perfect hair stylist or colorist. The truth of the matter is that for you to be fully persuaded and confident that the hair stylist is going to do a perfect job, you will need to do your own personal background findings about the competence of the hair stylist. This is to satisfy your curiosity. In doing this, you need to pay close attention to details. You can go round different hair salons with the sole aim of trying to figure out which saloon offers services that suits you.
Personally take out time to reach out to the hairstylists or colorists to see the skills. Assume the posture of a new prospect in town. Ask relevant questions targeted at finding out generally how they operate. If you are satisfied with the expertise of the hairstylist, you can go ahead and book for a session for you have just found the perfect hairstylist who will give you exactly what you want. Otherwise you continue with your background findings.
- Testimonial from other people
Another very important way of finding the perfect hair stylist is by testimonials from people who have patronized the salon before. For example, if you have a neighbor, class mate or colleague in work with a haircut or hair style that you admire, by asking them where they got it done, you are rest assured of what to expect by their recommendation. There is a sense of satisfaction and fulfilment that comes from getting a recommendation as to where to get your hair fixed.
You can also ask your family members and new acquaintances where they did their hair and they will gladly and joyfully refer you there so that you can get yours done too
