Your beauty salon questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much do beauty salon services cost?

The average cost for services at a beauty salon is between $40 and $200, depending on the salon, the stylist's experience, the length of your hair, and the services you schedule. Here are some general costs for common beauty salon services:

How much do I tip at a beauty salon?

Tipping at a beauty salon is a personal decision, but it is considered good etiquette to tip 15% to 20% of the service price. If you are happy with the service, you may want to tip more. Some clients do not tip if their stylist is the owner of the shop since the owner sets the prices and receives all of the money generated for their services.

Tipping in cash is preferred so that the stylist has their tip at the time of service instead of after credit card statements are processed. In addition to a tip, consider leaving a positive review on the salon's website or sharing on social media to promote their services to friends and connections.

What are beauty salons?

A beauty salon is a business that provides hair and cosmetic services including hair, nails, facials, waxing, and other body treatments. Beauty salons may also be called beauty shops or hair salons. Beauty salons are staffed by licensed cosmetologists, hair stylists, manicurists, estheticians, and massage therapists. Salons are often a stand-alone business but can also be found in day spas and resort hotels.

Some specialty salons focus on one service, rather than being a full-service salon. For example, a blow-out bar offers shampoo and blow-dry services by a trained hairstylist. An eyebrow bar specializes in eyebrow services like shaping, tenting, and threading by an esthetician or cosmetologist trained in eyebrow grooming.

When do beauty salons open?

Every salon has its own schedule. Most salons open around 9:00 or 10:00 in the morning and close around 6:00 or 7:00 in the evening. Most shops are open Tuesday through Saturday, allowing a two-day weekend for their staff on Sunday and Monday. Some salons stay open late one or two nights a week to accommodate client work schedules. Salons in urban areas tend to have longer hours than salons in rural areas.

Salons often extend their hours during busy wedding, prom, and homecoming seasons when more clients are looking for formal event hairstyles. Some stylists rent a chair in a salon and may work earlier or later than the salon employees. If you are looking for a beauty salon that is open late, check in malls, hotels, and airports where salons tend to be open late into the evening.

What questions should I ask the beauty salon?

Looking for a new beauty salon can feel overwhelming, and finding a salon or stylist that fits your budget and personality takes time. Here are some questions to help you narrow down your choices and find the perfect salon for you:

  • What do you charge for your services?
  • What are your hours of operation?
  • Are you open nights and weekends?
  • How many stylists work in your salon?
  • How experienced are your stylists?
  • What haircare brands does your salon use?
  • What products do you recommend for my hair type?

How do I choose a beauty salon?

When choosing a beauty salon, it's important to find a salon that has a convenient location and hours, and prices that fit your budget. Consider these suggestions when choosing a new beauty salon:

  • Make sure the salon offers the services you need at a price you can afford.
  • Read reviews on Fash as well as the salon's website and social media pages.
  • Visit the salon or stylist in person to see if the shop is clean, friendly, and has up-to-date equipment and the products you prefer.
  • Ask questions about their pricing, cancellation policy, stylist experience, and specialties.
