Last minute Covid cancellations can impact your business big time. In response to the Omicron strain, some salons are cracking down on cancellations to help reduce no-shows as the Covid crisis continues to drag on and on (and on…).
At some point or another we’ve all felt deflated or disrespected when someone has gotten our name wrong (even when it’s clearly written at the bottom of an email 😅). Pronouns are as much a part of someone’s identity as their name. Getting them right means more to people than you might think - it’s a way to help someone feel respected and seen. Our new pronouns feature makes it easy for your staff and your clients to communicate their pronouns, which in turn creates a safe, inclusive client experience for everyone who walks through your salon door.

Someone once said to me “EVERYONE who comes into my salon is a VIP. I do not differentiate”. Bold statement. Because whilst I appreciate the sentiment, if EVERYONE is a VIP, surely no one is a VIP right? Because VIP implies an elevated experience for your clients. And if everyone has that elevated experience, then surely that experience is just, well, normal. But of course, wanting to attract a certain calibre of clients – particularly those who seek a VIP experience and are willing to pay for it, can only be a good thing. As long as you structure it in a way that provides different levels of VIP experience.

The wow factor. That’s what we all want, don’t we? Our clients think that what we do is ‘wow’. That we are the best. That we deliver the most incredible experience every single time they walk through our doors. And isn’t that an exciting concept? I mean after all. We are artists. We are healers. We are therapists. We are stylists. We often know our clients better than they know themselves. And yet, on occasion, we can overlook the simplest of things that have the biggest impact.
