My Salon Observation
I did my beauty parlour observation at Faith Beauty Salon. This is a beauty parlour I visited time subsequently time to have services done to my hair, and never before interpreted an in-depth look at the surroundings. The front of the salon was just average, as the bearing didnt give an inviting feeling. There were pictures of hair styles and products on the exterior, but they were obscure behind grills.My first day of observation was on a verbose day, as the customers were few. I noniced that the salon was untidy, and dirty. The workers sat down and discussed in the flesh(predicate) business rather than taking the opportunity to tidy up the salon (fig. 2). There were drinks bottles on the hair station, and shoes and a bucket on the floor (fig. 2). Tools werent aim away properly, when not in use, e.g. blowdryer on hairstation (see fig. 2). There didnt seem to be proper storage for workers to put their handbags, as they were being unploughed on the hair station (fig. 3).The lave orbital cavity was quite small, and this was also were the garbage was being stored (fig. 4). Used towels were left(p) on the shampoo basin (fig. 4). The microwave for heating lunch is kept right over the garbage bin in the shampoo area (fig. 4). The sail throughs area was kept fairly neat and tidy by the nail technician (fig. 5). This may be due to the fact that this is the only rented station in the salon.There was quite a lot of selling going on in the salon, but nearly all the items being sold were not pertaining to hair grease. E.g. there were large displays of handbags (fig. 6). There was also a showcase with slippers, and toilet & body products for sale (fig. 2). The salon carried only one line of haircare products for retailing, in a very small quantity (fig.7).Overall the salon seem to be lacking in areas of sanitization, proper storage, image (e.g. attractiveness), and professionalism. It felt very much like a boutique, rather than a salon.
