Finding the perfect new hair salon can be a complicated task! Whether you’ve moved to a new city or are just looking for change, here are a few things to keep in mind when looking for a salon!

The Importance of The Consultation:
Before choosing a hairdresser or hair salon, it may be valuable to meet with a stylist for a consultation in person. This is an opportunity for you to get to know each other prior to a hair service and make sure the vibes are right! During this appointment the hairstylist should go over your hair goals and hair history to manage expectations, give you an accurate price quote, as well as ensure the right timing is set aside for your hair appointment so it goes smoothly!

The Colour Bar offers complimentary consultations to all of our guests for this purpose.

Hair Care:
The brands used in a salon can be a useful tool in deciding if the salon is right for you! Look for sulfate and paraben-free products with a range of solutions for different hair types.

At The Colour Bar, we are a Davines-exclusive salon, which means we use only this brand of products for our clients. Davines creates high-quality hair care that is naturally powered to solve many different hair problems while caring for the planet- a win win!

Online Research:
Check social media sites like Yelp and Google to get to know your potential salon! Reviews from clients can be extremely helpful in getting a feel for the salon experience before even stepping foot in the door. The Colour Bar has been top rated on Yelp in Sacramento for five consecutive years! Also important are socials like Instagram and Facebook, where many stylists and salons post photos of their work like a portfolio.

This will give you insight into each stylist or salon’s unique styles and specialties and find what speaks to you! Be sure to visit the salon’s website to check out all the service options they have to offer, as well as pricing, location and tons of other information!

Salon Location:
Good hair is worth traveling for! Another important factor in choosing a hair salon is its location. Is the salon in a location that is accessible and easy to get to in order to maintain your desired hair style? The Colour Bar has two convenient locations in East Sacramento and Midtown Sacramento to serve a range of clients throughout the area and beyond!
