Selecting your salon uniforms should not be a headache, but it shouldn't be based on a hasty decision either. You want your business to look and feel the best possible. Being appealing to customers is the secret to having repeated business and getting word-to-mouth recommendations, which is paramount in the beauty industry. Nevertheless, besides your quality service, keen prices and overall professionalism, the public's perception of your business depends on your image too. Don't risk losing customers to factors that have little to do with actual beauty care, such as... your uniforms!
Giving some thought to your purchase of salon uniforms and tunics may ultimately help you save a lot on your budget, as you won't have to continuously replace them. Getting best quality uniforms is getting value for money - and you know pretty well that, after all, cheap can actually turn out to be pretty expensive.
Finding a reliable merchant should be your first consideration. Shopping for salon uniforms and tunics online is very convenient, but you have to watch out for certain signs. Examine the seller's website: does it include a physical address, phone number, email address? Call them or, even better, email them - their customer service can be a good indication of how professionally (and how fast) they handle customers' requests.
Another point to consider is the merchant's return policy or money back guarantee. This should also be clearly indicated on the website, and the grounds on which you may want to return the products should include delivery of faulty items, as well as delivery of unwanted items. This is especially important, since you won't be able to see and touch the uniforms before you buy them. A salon tunic may look stunning on a webpage, but what if it proves to be of lesser quality or of a slightly different colour when you open the package? In the UK, law requires a minimum of seven days for the return of faulty or unwanted products, but a reputable seller will provide for at least double time.
When selecting your beauty salon uniforms, you should primarily insist on premium fabric quality, appropriate for professional use. The clothes must be easily washed and cleansed, must dry fast and be easily ironed. Since salon employees usually get no more than two or three changes of tunics or sometimes just one pair of trousers, they may have to wash them and have them ready overnight. Ordering more changes will prevent the uniforms from wearing out quickly and it can save you a lot of money in the long run. Also make sure that the fabric does not cause skin allergies.
Choose light colours rather than dark ones, as the latter tend to fade much faster and will need to be replaced more often. On the other hand, a crisp white will look sublime in the beginning of the day, but it can show every little stain very easily. The best choice for your salon uniforms is a nice medium colour scheme. A good seller will have a wide range of salon uniforms and tunics to choose from.
