This is the #1 Way to Find a New Hair Salon



New year, new hair? If you’re planning a chop, colour revamp or even just a trim, everything can be far more complicated when you have to find a brand new hair salon to boot.

Whatever the reason you’re starting from scratch, finding your new hairdresser can be a daunting task. Especially since you can’t exactly ask for a trial run—once it's chopped, it's chopped! But quell your fears friends, because we’ve done the digging and come up with an expert checklist to help you spot the pros from the pretenders.
