I know some people don’t go for regular facials, but when you do go, do you always go to the same facial salon all the time? Or do you salon hop?
How about if you are a facial regular? Do you prefer to stick to just one? Arguably this applies to all beauty salons – facials, spas, nails, hair… are you loyal?
I am a little bit of both. I like to salon hop, to try out different facial salons, but I also have a regular salon that I go back to most of the time.
I sometimes like to hop around, because you know, the grass is always greener on the other side. I’m always a little curious about what other salons might offer, or how the different treatments are or can be better for my skin. I was trying out new salons through group deals previously, but that was clearly a non starter after the early crappy experiences.
I sometimes pick up first time trial deals at facial salons, especially if its a salon from a brand I’ve been wanting to try, or if its a salon that uses a brand I’ve been wanting to try. Sometimes, I go back after my first trial e.g. Escentials Urban Retreat salon. I went back twice. I do the same for spas. I try the first time trial price and then decide if its worth going back for more.
But I also stick to a regular facial salon for more regular facials. The Kanebo International salon is one I’ve been going to for years and years so I always feel comfortable there, and I know what to expect out of the whole experience. Its nice for me to know that I have a regular place I can go back to after I’ve been on my jaunts around the other different salons. I’m less loyal to spas because I’m picky about my masseuse and I never seem to get the same one twice if she’s good 😛
As for hair salons, I am loathe to salon hop. Hair is something I’d rather not experiment with although I will have to say that sometimes, the curiousity does get the better of me 🙂 I don’t do my nails so nail salons aren’t on my radar.
Your Say: Do you salon hop? Or do you prefer to stick to just one salon?
