employee_holiday_schedule

I know, I know! We are just barely even into the new school year and holding on for dear life to what is left of summer, the last thing we want to be thinking about is cold weather and winter holidays. However, they will be here before we know it! As of next week Thanksgiving will be just 12 weeks away, and Christmas will be just 16. What does that mean for our clients?? If you are an every 4 week client, you only have 3 appointments between now and Thanksgiving, and 4 until Christmas!!!  If you are an every 6 week client you only have 2 APPOINTMENTS between now and Thanksgiving and 2.5 until Christmas. So, why do I mention these alarming statistics?? Because NOW is the time to book your appointments for the holiday season and until the end of the year. Don’t wait til its too late and your favorite stylist is already booked up!! No one wants to show up in family holiday photos with regrowth or gray hair!! Call the salon at 724-349-5444 or schedule online at www.Cameronsalon.com to get your holiday appointments set in stone now!!

If you are wanting an appointment for a cut or color before school starts, call the salon ASAP at 724-349-5444 or schedule online at www.cameronsalon.com.  Need to stock up on products for your dorm before college??

2019 Wedding Season

bride

The 2019 Wedding Season is in full swing. Every year our team services many wedding parties and provides hundreds of specialty styles to brides and bridal parties. We love being able to house large wedding parties and be a part of their special day.

Our bridal party services include

  • Specialty hair styling

  • Updos

  • Glo minerals makeup application

  • Shampooing and styling

  • Bridal veil placement

Here are some things you need to know about bridal party services at Cameron Salon.

  1. Deposit and Contract-We require a $55 deposit for all bridal parties and a bridal contract be filled out. The deposit must be paid at least a month before the wedding for your appointments to be saved. The deposit will go towards the Bride’s appointment the day of the wedding if:

*Everyone scheduled arrives at the time of or before their scheduled appointment time.

* Everyone comes with dry, ready to style hair (an extra fee will be added if blow drying time is needed.

*Everyone receives all services they are scheduled for ( we must be notified 14 business day in advance if any services need to be changed).

*The contract can be mailed and sent back or picked up, filled out and brought back. We must have it on file to be able to hold your appointments.

2)Appointment Length- We schedule bridal appointments between 30 and 60 min for each appointment.

3) Late Arrivals- If a wedding party is more than one half hour late without contacting us, the assumption is the client is a no-show. In this case, the client forfeits all deposits and payments. If a wedding party is late for the scheduled service appointment time and notifies us of the new arrival time, stylists may or may not be able to accommodate the new arrival time. If the scope of the original contract cannot be fulfilled, services may be reduced; however, clients are liable for the original amount.

4) Full Wedding Parties- We are able to accommodate large bridal parties. If we are fully staffed that day, we can service 8 clients at a time.

5) Wedding styles need to be booked through our receptionist, they are not able to be booked through our online booking system.

Do you have a wedding coming up? Call the salon at 724-349-5444 or stop in to talk with our receptionist to schedule and pick up a contract! We would love to be a part of your upcoming big day!

It’s never just a root touch up……

I read an article on Instagram this week from a beauty industry site I follow called behindthechair.com. I wanted to just copy and paste the link, but wasn’t having much luck bringing up WordPress at home on our insanely old desktop and we don’t have Wifi to be able to take it from my phone and post it at work- So, instead I am going to just retype and share some of the article. I thought it was very well written and possibly something our clients/readers have never given thought to before. You can read it here below-

” I had someone call the salon the other day asking for a price on a root touch up. When I told her they start at $100 she laughed and said ” no thank you”. I explained to her that it was much more than “just a root touch up”. She laughed again and asked what we do differently. I told her it’s a completely customized service and rather than just pulling a tube of color off the shelf and slapping it on your head, we use multiple tones to create formulas suited just for you. It was like talking to a wall. Needless to say we ended our conversation and I was left wondering if people prefer a cheaper service over quality results? Gray coverage is one of the most completly misunderstood services. It sounds so simple and yet it isn’t. Sometime’s we use up to 4 tubes of color, sometimes just 1- it just depends on the client and the situation. Let me break it down…..

Client comes in and you talk for 10-15 min about your hair while the stylist assesses the situation. Your stylist goes to the back, comes up with your color formula and mixes it up. Comes back out and applies it which can take 15-20 min depending on thickness and how fast your stylist applies color. You process anywhere from 35-45 min. You get shampooed and offered a conditioning treatment. You are then styled which can take 30plus min. depending on the length and thickness of your hair. At this point you’ve just been in the chair for almost 2 hours and had a custom color done using multiple tubes of color at 12plus dollars a tube. I get it though, time and cost of product shouldn’t determine the increase of service prices, But. They. Do. Time is money and products are money.” Here are your Cameron Salon blogger’s thoughts to add to this- remember, you get what you pay for. You may be able to get a box of color off the grocery store shelf for $10 or less to touch up your roots, but does it truly look and feel the same as it does when you walk out of the salon after a retouch!?Does it cover the gray hair the same, hold as well, fade more quickly!? You are paying for a service,our expertise and an experience! Hope this makes sense. We are so thankful for each and every one of our clients!! Need an appointment?
