Hair beauty salons today are incorporating beauty treatments like waxing eyebrows, nail art, manicures and other similar services. Other established and renowned salons offer services like massages of the whole body and aesthetic treatments like laser, electrolysis, dermal fillings and more.
Almost everyone has his favourite beauty salon and some keep changing places until they find a more knowledgeable stylist that meets their demands and needs. Depending on the business size and revenue is the salon’s reputation. Maybe a salon in a corner in a small town cannot offer the services and professional advice as a renowned one in a big mall in the city. Some stylists are more into it for the revenue than for their passion to serve clients. I really hate this type of attitude and it seems it’s getting the norm in some places.
You should tell your stylist about changes or particular conditions regarding your hair. Although a professional that know the trade and cares for his clients should always do a test on a small area when trying out new products or treatments. Many just do away with this.
