How to Create an Instagrammable Space in Your Salon
The salon is an undeniable “in person” experience. However, our world is so digitally engaged. Salon owners are putting their feet into this phenomenon of sharing moments of joy or greatness with their Instagram-worthy feature walls. When that teen gets her/his first highlight or drastically changes up their hair color, they can share it with their peers through social media. When the intimidatingly stylish 20 something braves a new style, they can post it filter free straight from the source thus marketing your salon business.
This in terms aids in growing your business and following, especially for your talented stylists.
