The holiday season is a beautiful time of year for any salon. With celebrations, twinkly lights, retail promotions, and an increase in bookings — it’s also one of the busiest times of the year. Whether your clients book months out or are texting to get squeezed in at the last minute, being prepared is key to getting through the season. And, if you’re a planner, having ANDIAMO® in stock is the number one way to get clients in and out of the salon this holiday season.
How To Prepare The Salon for the Holiday Season
1. Encourage Clients to Book Early
It is never too early to encourage your clients to book. Consider creating reminders on social media, sending out emails, or even texts.
2. Increase Communication
When clients do book in, touch base with them to see if they’ll be switching up their style. If you can, have consultations over the phone beforehand so you don’t have any surprises in the chair. This will help you book out the proper amount of time for each service so you run on schedule.
Timing is everything in the salon and during the holidays it is even more important. Aloxxi ANDIAMO® Express Permanent Colour is the top way to get clients in and out of the salon, especially during the busy holiday season. With TurboDye Technology®, grey coverage and gorgeous colour results, ANDIAMO® can deliver express colour services in as little as 10 minutes. From root retouches to lifting up to four levels, this calibrated dye coupler formula regulates the dye oxidation pace to ensure consistent, on-point color results with outstanding care and condition to create healthy hair.
4. Consider Hiring A Personal or Salon Assistant
Everyone wants to gather around this time of year — clients have holiday office parties, family portraits and intimate gatherings. Due to the increase in traffic in the salon, hiring a personal or salon assistant can increase efficiency at the salon and also give you a little break when you need it.
