    Yessssssss!!! Thank you @behindthechair_com !! 20 Years in, full clientele, STILL give consults! The client wants to know you care, your listening and you have not become complacent πŸ’› never pre mix expecting... some clients never change but I still ask! #customerservice

    I drill my Cos Students on consults. If not for nothing . . . They will master the art of the consultation.

    Absolutely agree, i was in a salon a couple of weeks ago and all i felt was the watching at the clock and watch without first have the vision of what exactly I was looking for. And the convo..... Narrow minded

    Most stylists are unaware of their skill set, which makes the consultation inefficient.... education education educationπŸ€“

    5 C's consultation is an amazing guideline to performing a thorough consult.

    Actually this is the exact same reason why I always highly recommend my hair stylist.. He does THE best consultations ever and makes sure both (client and him) are talking the same language

    Make your guest feel comfortable with you first. Greet them, state your name, ask them if you can take their coat for them or get them a glass of water. Then turn them TOWARDs you, don't talk to them in the mirror, look them in eye and get on the same page and level with them. Repeat back what they asked you to do, ask questions, dig information out of them so it saves you the trouble later. I treat all clients in the first 15 mins like it's a consultation at a doctors office. All the playing, bs, gossip can be saved when you're getting down on doing the hair. Trust me, even my Male clients notice how thorough and professional I am with them. Most clients say their precious stylist NEVER took the time to do that with them, and that they knew coming to you would be worth their money :)

    @behindthechair_com Hi! 😍 the link in bio for this pic keeps taking me to the article about Robert Cromeans (which are amazing) but I can't see anything else linking to the consultation tips - am I doing something wrong?!

    One in ten???? That never happens in our shop. The number one thing I see is miscommunication. Pay attention to what the client says. Hairdressers love giving what trending or trying the technique they learned last week on every client for the next two months lol Trends aren't for everyone.

    I always consulted. I was very busy. I listened to people. I cared for the hair like it was my own. Always those I want my hair short but only take off half an inch people. My feet got destroyed. I have heel spurs and plantar fasciitis in both feet. Surgery is not an option. I wouldn't be able to walk with the fascitis surgery. My one true passion. The job I dreamed about since 6th grade

    This is so true if u don't give a good consultation u and your client maybe confused...I know I have some clients ask me why do you ask so many questions 'well cause I want to understand what u are looking for and give u just that'...talking to clients doesn't have to take to long but it definitely helps to have a GOOD consultation with them😊
