Leaving the salon after a hair appointment is not just about walking out with a fresh style but also about ensuring a positive and respectful experience for you and the salon staff.


Express Your Satisfaction

If you’re happy with the service provided by your stylist, don’t hesitate to express your gratitude and satisfaction. A simple “thank you” or compliment can go a long way in making your stylist feel appreciated for their hard work.

Tip Generously

Tipping is customary in the salon industry and a way to show appreciation for your stylist’s expertise and service. Tip according to the quality of service you received, typically 15% to 20% of the total service cost. If you’re particularly pleased with your stylist’s work, consider tipping on the higher end of the spectrum.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

Before you leave the salon, schedule your next appointment, whether for a touch-up, trim, or follow-up service. This ensures you secure a convenient time slot and helps maintain continuity in your hair care routine.

Purchase Recommended Products

If your stylist recommends hair care products to maintain your new style or address specific concerns, consider purchasing them before leaving the salon. Using professional-grade products recommended by your stylist can help prolong the life of your hairstyle and keep your hair healthy and vibrant between salon visits.

Skip Payment or Underpay

Always pay for the services you received in full, including any additional charges for products or treatments. Skipping payment or underpaying is disrespectful to the salon staff and can damage your reputation as a client.

Be Late for Your Appointment

Respect your stylist’s and fellow clients’ time by arriving punctually for your appointment. Being late can disrupt the salon’s schedule and inconvenience other clients after your appointments.

Be Rude or Disrespectful

At all times, maintain a courteous and respectful demeanor toward the salon staff and other clients. Avoid using harsh language, making derogatory remarks, or behaving in a disruptive manner that may create a negative atmosphere in the salon.

Make Last-Minute Changes

Avoid making significant changes to your hairstyle or requesting additional services at the last minute, especially if it may disrupt the salon’s schedule or require extra time and resources. Plan and communicate any desired changes or additions to your stylist.
