5 Technology Advances To Improve Your Hair Salon

03 February 2022 | 2 comments | Posted by Juliane Burton in Beauty Basics

Tech improvements for hair salons

Clients increasingly expect simplicity, ease, and speed from every service in the services industry. Technology is becoming an integral element of the procedures, from scheduling appointments to using services and making payments.

Your salon business must be prepared to keep up with changing consumer preferences and expectations to continue to operate successfully in the future. Salons today must adopt a futuristic business model that allows for rapid integration of technology at all levels to meet clients' expectations. What is deemed normal is rapidly changing due to technological advancements.

Is your salon up to the challenge of the new normal?

Here are the five technical advancements that you must stay up with to succeed in the future.

1. Online appointment programs

How do you keep track of your salon appointments? Are you still making phone appointments and keeping track of them in a calendar?

It's possible that your customers will be dissatisfied. The appointment process has been revolutionized thanks to the development of online programs and smartphone apps.

While you should accept phone bookings, you should also make online appointments available to your consumers via your website, online portal, or smartphone app. The client will see the available time slots for a particular service and schedule an appointment accordingly. Your employees wouldn't have to go back and forth between pages seeking open slots, and appointments could be verified using an automated system.

It is more convenient, quick, and simple to schedule appointments online.

2. Online session or webcam consultation

Do you do walk-in consultations? What are your options?

Not every customer knows what they want to accomplish with their hair. As a result, many clients visit the salon for a consultation to discuss haircut and dye alternatives. Video conferencing has become incredibly cost-effective, even for small organisations.

You can deliver online or webcam-based consulting services to your client with the right video equipment and video calling solutions. You will be able to see and observe the client's hair and provide advice using the video. It will not only save the client the trouble of driving, but it will also help you better manage queues or waiting lists.

3. Virtual reality software

How do you know if a particular haircut is right for your client? Hairstylists with a lot of knowledge and talent can accurately forecast the results of a haircut, hairstyle, or dye. Many of us, though, have made mistakes and experienced disasters. Are you aware that technology exists to forecast it?

Clients can try on numerous hairstyles through simulation and modelling using the newest virtual reality software in hairdressing, styling, and dying.

You may show your customer their post-hairstyling appearance with greater than 90% accuracy using the latest software. Because the VR equipment and software are simple to use, salon managers may utilize them with little training, and the technology is also safe for clients.

4. Hair colour blending machines

Hairstyling and Certificate III hairdressing are two professions where inventiveness knows no limitations. Gone are the days when you had to choose between Ombre or Mahogany or a limited palette of main and secondary hues. With the help of a few readily available colours, experienced hairdressers create their colours.

However, with today's technology, you may properly build your colours and chromes. Colour blending machines of today are advanced, allowing for complete control over mixing and blending. Colour tracking machines allow every hairdresser, regardless of skill level, to express creativity and create their colour palette.

Another significant advantage of such machines is that they aid in waste product control.

5. Salon management system

The salon management system is another technical innovation in the beauty sector. Are you sick of keeping track of inventories, reconciling financial transactions, managing payrolls, and maintaining customer records?

With salon management systems, you can accomplish it all at once and with minimal effort. Salon management systems are available in a variety of modules, and you can select one that best suits your needs. These technologies are extremely adaptable and customizable, allowing you to create a fully unique product for your salon.

Because of their simplicity, such systems can be used by anyone with little training. Overall, such solutions assist you in more successfully operating the salon by decreasing manual errors, inventory control, and consolidated data.

Women's hair loss is defined as when a woman's hair falls out rapidly and heavily. Humans shed between 50 and 100 single hairs every day on average. Hair shedding is a natural process in which some hairs fall out, and others grow. Hair loss occurs when the balance is disrupted – when hair falls out, and less hair grows in. Hair shedding is not the same as hair loss. Alopecia is the medical word for hair loss.

Hair grows on practically every part of your body except the palms of your hands, the soles of your feet, your lips, and your eyelids. Vellus hair is light, fine, and short hair. Hair that is terminal or androgenic is thicker, darker, and longer.
