When styling your salon, it can be tough. There are so many options and styles to select that finding the right balance can be difficult. Consider utilising mirrors in your space to help make the area feel more open, lighter and create a nice ambience. Mirrors play a vital role in your salon, whether you've realised it or not.
While it's great for hairdressers and beauticians, waxing experts may want to steer clear of big full mirrors, just smaller in size. It can be intimidating making them feel uncomfortable. It's all about knowing your clientele and learning to read their cues.
Mirrors For Communicating With Customers
While most clients will use the mirrors to watch the progress on their hair, they also use it for communication too. A great deal of the service can be difficult to hear, especially in busier salons. With hairdryers bustling, water running from basins and chitter-chatter all around, it can be difficult for your client to hear you. Instead, they look in the mirror for your response. Now that you're aware of it, you too will often watch them in the reflection!
Mirrors also help to show a customer exactly what you are doing on their hair. Without one, customers will frequently ask questions like "how much longer to go?" or "What are you doing now?" so, this eliminates their curiosity. Remember, don't overdo the salon with mirrors, you still want a personal experience for each client, without seeing the reflection of neighbouring customers watching. Help create a relaxed atmosphere and don't forget to keep to your decor of the salon! The wrong shape station can set the wrong tone!
