Hairstylists are usually always so happy to see their clients. Usually. There are times when the hair on the back of their necks rises (pardon the pun) because of you, the client. Why? Because there is such a thing called salon etiquette, and sadly most people are completely unaware of this. 

If you aren’t up on salon etiquette and you pull any of the following 10 moves, your stylist will hope you never return. 

Stay Home if You’re Sick

Leave Your Kids at Home

If your kids are high energy and prone to break things or misbehave, please leave them at home. We don’t run a babysitting service here, and oftentimes kids run around, disturb other clients and break things. Our things are really expensive, and many clients come to the salon to relax and not be disturbed by out-of-control kids. If you can’t find a babysitter, reschedule your appointment.

Call If You’re Going to Be Late

If you know you’re going to be more than 20 minutes late, please call. We lose money sitting around waiting for clients who don’t show up or forget to call. It’s really just respectful. In that time, we can generally squeeze in a smaller service and make a wee bit of money while waiting for you. 

Don’t Be a No Show

If you can’t make your appointment, please call and cancel. There is nothing worse than sitting and waiting for a client who was booked in for a 2-hour service, only to have them not show up. We lose a lot of money when you do this. Please don’t. Just call. It takes two seconds, and we promise we won’t be mad.

Don’t Ask Me if I Know What I’m Doing

There is nothing more insulting to a hairstylist than being asked, “Do you know what you’re doing.” We are trained professionals, many of us with years of experience. Yes, we know what we’re doing. Do you ask your dentist or doctor that? Don’t be rude.

Don’t Gossip About My Coworkers to Me

These girls are my friends. Why would I want to talk bad about them? If you have an issue or a problem with one of them, please take it up with them or my boss, not me. And besides, gossiping is for high school girls. We’re past that.

Stay Off Your Phone

While I’m cutting, coloring, washing, blowdrying, or doing anything with your hair, please stay off your phone unless it’s an emergency. It’s super hard and frustrating to try and work on your head if there’s a cell phone attached to the side of it. 

Don’t Make a Scene if You Hate Your Hair

Yelling and freaking out in front of a salon full of people is embarrassing, immature, and disrespectful. Please don’t do that. Nothing gets resolved that way, and chances are, we won’t want you back in the salon if you do that. 

Don’t Ask For a Discount

This isn’t Walmart, babe. This is a salon full of professional stylists who had to go to school to learn this trade and spend years perfecting it. We don’t offer discounts. Neither does your plumber, mechanic, dentist, or eye doctor.

Don’t Treat Me Like Your Slave

Please don’t treat me like I’m your slave and talk to me like I’m stupid. First and foremost, I’m a human being with feelings. I’m not below you or above you. We are equal, even if you make way more money than I do. I am here to serve you, but it can be done in a respectful manner too.
