WHAT iF i DON’T LOVE MY HAiR?

WHAT iF i DON’T LOVE MY HAiR?

 

So the day has arrived. You’ve waited weeks for your color appointment and  you can hardly contain your excitement. You’ve finally decided that today is the day you are going to make the change to that amazing Pinterest pic you’ve been ogling.

You go in, have a consultation with your stylist, and you sit there for 3+ hours expecting to look exactly like the picture. You and your stylist are hitting it off. She’s sharing great information about styling and you are taking mental notes so you can fully enjoy this new look at home.

Then she rinses, glazes, cuts, and styles you out. She hands you the mirror and you are expecting to scream with excitement but wait, it’s not quite as blonde as you wanted. The haircut is great. It’s styled out great. But man it’s not blonde enough! Now what!?

Fear starts to take over and before you can say what you are really thinking you say it’s okay, you pay, set up your next appointment and go home. Once home, you can’t help but think, “Man this really isn’t what I was looking for. I really wanted it to be brighter.”

Does this story sound familiar? Hey we all have been there. It can be hard to tell someone that you don’t quite love what they did. No-one wants to hurt someones feelings. And that’s why we here at MOD wanted to take a minute to tell you that it’s okay to tell us if we missed the mark! That is how we learn and grow!

We want you to feel comfortable enough to let us know. We are always willing to make any adjustments necessary. Never do we intend to get it wrong and almost always when we have had to make an adjustment it is something that is a pretty easy fix.

We work as a team here at MOD. So we will work together to do what works best for you and your schedule to make that adjustment. We ultimately want you to feel beautiful and love your hair!

So here’s a few tips to bring up the subject:

  1. If you know right away in the chair it is not for example blonde enough, let us know. We will make the adjustment immediately if we can. If we can’t do it then we will work with you to get you in at a time that works best for you with one of our stylists.
  2. If you are unsure but want to go home and decide, let us know. We’d be happy to reach out to you in a few days to see if we need to make any adjustments. Sometimes, just like when you go shopping, you need to try it on.
  3. If you get home and realize it isn’t what you were wanting or expecting, please call us. One of our front desk team members will be happy to get you in with one of our stylists to make that adjustment. Or they also would be happy to connect you with a manager.

 

Our mission is to create hair color you will love! But should we miss the mark, we want to know. That’s why this blog was important to us. We want to take the uncomfortableness out of what can be an uncomfortable situation so you can love your hair.

IS IT CHEATING IF IT’S THE SAME SALON?

Is it cheating if it’s in the same salon?

 

“If I see another stylist in the salon where my stylist works won’t she be mad at me?” or “I went to Sally while Jane was on maternity leave and I love how she did my hair. I want to continue seeing her but I don’t want to hurt Jane’s feelings.”

These are some things we have heard a lot over the years. The fear of cheating is a real thing and sometimes leads one to stop going to a salon all together to avoid any conflict. So we wanted to take a moment to talk about this issue and give you our thoughts on it.

Our team is here for you, our guests! If it wasn’t for you beautiful people we wouldn’t be living our dream on a daily. At MOD we want you to feel comfortable seeing any stylist you choose. Life is busy and we get that! Sometimes you just need in for a color before your friends wedding and as much as you want to see the stylist you have been seeing for 5 years your schedules just aren’t lining up. That’s okay! We invite you to book with any one of our fabulous stylists if that works best for you and your schedule. NO GRUDGES! NO HARD FEELiNGS! You won’t get the cold shoulder from the stylist you didn’t make an appointment with. In fact when that stylist has a moment she will most likely pop over to say hello and catch up.

Now what if you see another stylist while another one was gone and you really like the haircut and/or color they gave you. You want to continue to see this new stylist because she gave you a fresh new look and you simply want to change things up. We say go for it! Rebook with them. There is no need to explain or defend yourself. We all crave change! We promise none of our stylists will be upset if you are sitting in another teammates chair. You can even bounce back and forth between stylists within MOD. Like we mentioned before, life is busy and sometimes schedules just don’t line up. You may even choose to see one stylist for color and another for haircuts because you like what each of them do. That’s okay too. We all have different strengths.

Of course if you want to stay with one stylist you can. We just want you to know that all of these things are okay with us. We are a team here at MOD so seeing our fellow team mates slaying hair fills up our hearts and makes us happy inside. There is no “my guest” or “your guest” here. We as a team want to take care of OUR guests. We want to take care of YOU. TEAM MOD is here to do what is best for you and your hair.

See you at the salon!

Training In Progress

 

 

‼️​TRAINING IN PROGRESS‼️​

Quiet!! Training: In Progress! Here at Mod Hair Color Salon & Beauty Store we believe education and training is vital to our success behind the chair. Not only is it what continues to make us a better stylist year after year, it is what can make or break a new stylist. That is why we are creating a training program here at the salon for stylists coming out of school. ?​

The goal behind the training program is to allow for an easier transition from school to salon. Think of it as a residency for Cosmetologists. We are expecting the finished training program to be anywhere from 6-12 months.

I have been working with two very talented young stylists to create this training program for the past 4 months. Together we are discovering what works and what doesn’t all the while training them to become the best! The future of our stylists is very important to Jody and I.

 I asked Mataya Clark what she liked best about the training program and she told me this, “In school you learn the basics of every cut, style, and color. This program allows you to learn more advanced techniques and fully prepare you for the unexpected. Being in a fast pace salon environment really opens your eyes to all the possibilities of becoming a successful stylist.” 

She is right. You just can’t learn it all in school. Salon owners and senior stylists have an  obligation to guide their team. We need to take part in creating greatness in our industry. It is our responsibility to teach the next generation. In doing so we can truly learn a great deal.

Sara Fisher was the first to start in this program. She says she loves being a part of the development of the program. “I am happy to be apart of this development because I’ll really be able to see how much it changes and grows for stylists who are a part of it in the future. To be able to eventually coach others will be extremely rewarding.”

We look forward to seeing how far they have grown once they have completed the training program. They have already gained so much. Sara and Mataya are currently behind the chair on Saturdays doing blow outs, formal styling, waxing, makeup and hair treatments. They currently are in the cutting portion of the training program and have a goal of cutting hair behind the chair in October. This would allow them to be behind the chair Wednesday nights and Saturdays.

To schedule a blow out with Sara and Mataya call 319-553-1080 or book online at www.modsalonbeautystore.com.
