Even if you enjoy the hairstyle you are getting at your current salon, there is something to be said for making the switch to one close to home. Routines are hard to break, but the benefits of choosing local only begin with saving money and helping your style soar. You may feel happy where you are at, but the more you know about the importance of supporting local hair salons you may make the switch.
We all know that salons can be expensive. Bigger salons can be expensive and usually because of the location and structure of the salon itself. Most people forget that quality hair care doesn't always hinge on cost, especially when they are used to paying high charges. You may be paying for a booth rental, boutique operating space, and the salons buyout when you pay for your service without knowing it.
Aside from local hair salons being more affordable, or at least more upfront about their charges, the convenience factor is huge. If you travel to your salon then you may not realize how much gas you spend and parking you pay. Not only would you be saving on inflated service costs, but you could be saving gas money. Even if there is or isn’t relief at the pump, saving gas money is always a smart move and not having to pay for parking, toll bridges, and even stopping for lunch between destinations add up.
The hair salon we choose is also important because of the bond we have with that person, but if you choose to get your hair done at a local salon you may gain a new friend that lives nearby. But if you stick with a locally owned and operated salon you can guarantee seeing the same stylist every time, and paying the same amount you are used to. Sharing community with your stylist could mean that you are swapping recipes, finding new places to shop, new restaurants to try, or hearing about social happenings in your area.
Another important factor of local hair salons is that they help boost your community’s local economy. This goes for hair salons especially. It may seem small, but women and men can make a huge difference in local business by simply supporting them. House values and property values are increased when the neighborhood businesses are doing well.
