If you are reluctant to go to a senior salon, there might be reasons to go that you haven’t thought about before. Bradley Studnicka, hairdresser and stylist, has a few ideas and tips for seniors that are worried about the costs as well.
Trip to the senior salon
One obvious reason that a trip to the senior salon can be worthwhile is that it’s a great way to socialize. Creating new friendships and being out and about is a great way to stay active. Also a trip to the salon is very interactive. Having a regular hairstylist is building a relationship. They want to get to know you so they can offer advice on style based on who you are, not just what you look like.
Another obvious reason is that a new hairstyle or salon service can make you look nicer and younger which can improve self-esteem.
If you are concerned about costs, check out different salons that may have some promotions or coupons available. You can also talk to your stylist about setting up a monthly discount as a returning customer versus cost per visit. Also, groups rates are sometimes available so talk to your friends and make it a fun, monthly outing!
Salons don’t just cut hair. They can offer waxing, tanning, massages, and other beauty and health-related services. Shampoos can be a great way to revitalize your hair, and skin treatments can help your skin stay healthier and younger looking. Eyebrow waxing is a cheap way to change your look too.
Studnicka also said that there have been advances in hair coloring that can completely eliminate and cover grey and white hairs well and also are not damaging to sensitive skin.
Many continuing care retirement communities have salons, so check into what they have to offer!
