The method of booking a hair appointment has evolved almost as fast as it takes for a client’s hair to process.
Ok, maybe not that fast, but it seems like it.
One change makes a big difference.
The evolution of the booking process has changed for the better, leaving behind bulky appointment books and making way for something we carry around with us all the time anyway: our smartphone.
Salons and independent stylists started with bulky appointment books. The first software platforms available were designed for salon management, not independent stylists. This was a layered communication chain that wasn’t a good fit for many stylists or their clients. Enhancing a client’s experience with their stylist should be personal and as direct as possible.
To raise your hairstyling profits, you need to spend less time on tasks that do not create income, and more time working on things that do. Tips on time management: (1) Write out an actionable plan by starting with your final vision for your business. (2) Set daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals. (3) Before you go to sleep, make a prioritized list of things you’d like to do for the next day and stick to the plan. 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣
Leslie Donn Thompson, stylist at Meridian Design Group (MDG), began her career in a salon that utilized software for booking appointments. However, once she became an independent stylist, she could not find a similar software platform to fit her needs. She started with using her own calendar and spreadsheet on her laptop, but it wasn’t quite meeting all of her needs.
Change is good.
Then Leslie was introduced to Stylie.
“Using Stylie raises the level of customer service that my clients’ experience with me,” shares Leslie, who loves to see evolution within her industry. “I am happy with the ease of use for both me, as a stylist, and for my clients.”
