Looking for a Hairdresser, Barber or Hair Salon? Then here are 3 vital things to do before you decide on one

Whether you're looking to have your hair cut or styled for a big event like a a work night out, Bridal or Wedding hair styled or any aspect of hairdressing done then you need to be very careful which Hairdresser you decide to use for your Hair style.

Here are 3 vital things to do before you decide to spend your hard earned cash.

1. Make sure you choose an established Hair dresser or Hair salon.

There are lots of hairdressers that will promise you the world and give you a price that sounds too good to be true. It usually is. A great way of checking how established a business is, is to check if they are listed under the 'Hairdressers' classification of the Yellow Pages.

The Yellow pages vet businesses and perform credit checks on any Hair Salon or Hair Stylist that wants to advertise so you know whatever Hair salon you find in there can be trusted. It also costs to be in the 'Hairdressers' classification of the yellow pages book these days so if a company is paying and in there, then you know they are serious about putting their customers at ease because they know that the old saying "If you not in the Yellow Pages, then you're not in business" still rings true.

2. Check out the Hair Salons website for examples of their work & customer testimonials.

Seeing is believing. Most serious businesses have a website now so they can showcase their work and allow potential customers to see what their existing customer think about them.

This information is perfect for deciding on a Hairdresser to handle your Wedding hair, Hair cut or designing your new hair style. You should be able to see before and after pictures of hair styles similar to what you need done.

Reading customer testimonials are a must before you make a decision. They will allow you to set realistic expectations for dealing with the hair salon you choose.  

3. If you've been recommended a good hairdresser or hair salon by a friend or family member. Go check out the work.

If they have had bridal hair done or new hair style ask them can you see the work. Inspect the work yourself and ask them questions about their experience.

Some  hair salons can even arrange for you to go see some of their existing customers work to get an idea of what they can do. It's always worth asking if this is possible, it's a big decision when it comes to choosing a new hair dresser to cut your hair of give you the perfect wedding hair for the big day.
