Finding a Great Black Hair Salon

Find Hair Salons You Can Trust

We’ve all felt the anxiety and panic of booking with an unfamiliar salon or barber.  You don’t want to end up with the worst haircut ever or a hair color disaster.  Searching for a new hair salon or barber can be a frustrating experience.  If you’ve ever relocated to a new city, or been out of town and need a stylist or barber, you know what we mean. So how do you find hair salons that you can trust?

3 Tips to Find Hair Salons or Barber Shops

How can you find a great Black hair salon or barber shop you can trust with your tresses? Here’s 3 tips to help you find a licensed hair stylist or barber on the go.

1. Ask for referrals to find hair salons  Find hair salons like Natural Hair by Nerissa from Portsmouth, VA listed in the BestDooz Salon Directory

A talented salon profesional has the best advertising–their existing clients. If you notice a great haircut, color or hairstyle on someone, compliment the person and ask for a referral. Ask “who did your hair?” and get styled by someone whose work you already admire.

2.  Find hair salons among trustworthy sources on social media

Many happy clients post selfies and shout out their favorite hair stylist.  You’ll have a better idea of the expected outcome by previewing the stylist’s previous work.   Try using hashtags containing local keywords to get better search results.

Be careful!  There are  imposters online who copy (in some cases, steal) other stylists’ work and misrepresent it as their own.  If you’re on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, look for watermarks and research to confirm they are who they say they are BEFORE booking an appointment.  Find hair salons like Natasha Crutchfield in the BestDooz Salon Finder
