A telltale sign of a successful business is just that…a lot of business. The busier a salon is, the more certain you can be that the services they are providing are of high quality. This is not to say that smaller, less populated salons cannot provide top-notch services; but, rather, that when you a see a jam packed salon, you can more than likely trust the work going on there.
When it comes to microblading, it’s important to go to a salon that is professional, clean, and highly trained in the art. But, for many people considering microblading, it is their first time and they may not know anyone who has had microblading done before. Online reviews and referrals from acquaintances can be helpful, but you can go one step further before booking your appointment—drive by the salon!
Following through with microblading is a big deal, as the procedure can totally alter the look of your face, for better or worse, depending on whom you choose to work with. So while taking suggestions from friends, family, or the Internet, can be a great start to choosing a salon, you can also take matters into your own hands. Narrow done your list of contenders to the few that you like best and visit the salons before booking an appointment.
If the salon has its own parking lot, note the amount of cars there. Remember, though, that for many urban locations, you’ll need to get a look inside the salon to really understand how busy it is. If there is a steady flow of people in and out of a salon, working with that business is a safe choice. Why would so many people visit a business offering mediocre service? They wouldn’t.
It is also important to remember that “busy” is relative to the size, type, and history of a salon. Very small locations cannot accommodate a large number of people, so a smaller crowd at a smaller salon should not count them out as great microblading technicians.
Similarly, some microblading salons are considered “boutique” businesses, designed to cater to a select number of customers. These types of salons won’t have a high volume of clients, but their services are usually rated very highly. On the flip side, certain businesses are designed to get clients in and out of the door as fast as possible. While these salons could see a lot of traffic from people who haven’t done their homework, you should be weary of booking with their technicians. Microblading is not intended to be a quick job.
Finally, a salon’s history can impact how busy it is. A salon that has been around for decades has had time to build a solid reputation in its community and possibly even around the country, which will keep old clients coming back and attract new ones. Brand new salons may have highly experienced technicians and offer excellent services, but aren’t yet well known in their communities.
Business is a great indicator of the quality of a salon’s services; but, it certainly should not be the only thing you consider in choosing where to have your microblading procedure done.
Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.
