Sometimes it's better to find a beautician before you find the salon they work in. Know someone who always has amazing hair? Find out the name of their stylist and try them out. Then, either commit to the salon or move along.
2. Business Cards

There are always business cards floating around. Someone hands you one and you throw it in your wallet, people leave them places, why not take advantage? Take a look at the cards and if you find one that's interesting with a cute logo design, stop in. Just remember, you don't have to commit right away.
3. Hop around:

Finding a beauty salon is like dating — sometimes it is perfectly okay to just try out a few at once. Stop in and get an eyebrow wax at one place, get a manicureat another. If you find yourself liking one place more than another, then try out more things there and soon enough you'll have what you're looking for.
4. Try Something New:

Were you going to a big corporate chain for your hair, nails and waxingbefore? Why not try a mom and pop place? It can be a little frightening at first. But, you may find that you like their brand of personalized service much better.
5. Check out Their Customers:

I mean really, take a look. Do the people coming out look happy? Aretheir hairstylessimilar to yours? Does everyone come out looking the same? It's not creepy to look out for customers and see if you'll like the salon based on them. Just don't do any weird creeper glares and you'll still look and feel totally normal.
6. Find Pricing and Location:
