Turn to any media outlet and you will see an abundance of makeovers – for your home décor, your attire, and especially for yourself. Everywhere you look, someone is telling you why you need to change and how you will benefit.
Perhaps it’s fitting then that the one place where makeovers originally began – the hair salon – should consider a renovation of its own. If you’re the proud small business owner of a neighborhood salon, a sprucing up is sure be appreciated by regular customers as well as attract new ones, bringing in even more business.
And since autumn is a season of fresh starts, there is no better time to give your business a once over – and a makeover – making your own fashion statement and setting the mood for your small business.
- Freshen up. There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint to brighten the environment. Choose an uplifting yet neutral color palette so as not to distract from the business at hand. Let your counters, chairs, and decorative hardware provide the accent. And don’t forget to throw out old magazines.
- Clean up. Fall is the perfect time of year for a thorough cleaning, from top to bottom. Presentation is everything, so don’t forget to wash curtains and touch up stains and nicks on your walls. Also, don’t overlook places where you think people aren’t looking, such as under counters and sinks, because someone will notice.
- Go upscale. Even the most cost-conscious, small business owner can add touches that look “luxurious,” even if they aren’t expensive, such as new lighting, accent plants, and framed artwork or photographs. Updated signage is a plus (or at least give your present one a good cleaning).
- Welcome mats. Now that your business received a good cleaning, it’s time to boost business and welcome more customers. Set up events, such as mother-daughter days, senior Tuesdays, and wedding, prom, or bachelorette specials.
So, rejuvenate your salon for fall, and promote yourself to help your business prosper. Pride in ownership will make you feel good and bring in even more customers #salonloyalty.
