Tips for Salon Visits


Prepare your child by having many conversations about what the salon may be like.

~Plan your appointment during the part of the day when they are feeling their best. Do not plan the Princess’ hair appointment during nap time.

~On average, an appointment for natural styling will take around 2 hours. The more they cooperate the closer to 2 hours or less, it is.

~Bring snacks, books, toys, tablet, weighted blankets or whatever will help your child cope with the new experience.

~Come with hair detangled as much as possible. The easiest way to manage this is to comb out with a leave-in and put in large twist or braids (3-4 should be sufficient).

~If you have not chosen an appointment that includes a shampoo service, please come with hair that has been taken out of the previous style and detangled.

~Prepare yourself to sit, or to run errands during your daughter’s hair appointment.

~If a child is not being serviced, please consider not bringing them to the salon because space is limited.

~Find out what the accepted payments are. Often it is cash or card.

Preparing your child for their first salon visit is crucial to instill a positive and lasting impression about hair care and grooming. A positive experience will help them develop a healthy attitude towards self-care and appearance. Introducing the salon environment early on will make future visits more comfortable and less intimidating, fostering a sense of confidence in trying new styles and treatments. Additionally, educating them about salon etiquette and the importance of clear communication with stylists will empower them to articulate their preferences and build a trusting relationship with their hair care professionals. Ultimately, early preparation for salon visits sets the foundation for a lifetime of self-confidence and self-expression through hair care.
