That we're sanitary (clean) and new (always introducing new products that we have in our industry.)
What is your craziest/funniest salon story?
We had a few clients walk in at the same time who just sat down in the waiting area. One of the clients was a man who had come to our salon a couple of times before, but when he walked in this time, no one recognized him because he had a hat covering his face and he just sat there. We thought he was waiting for someone getting her nails done, so we didn't really bother him. He sat there so quietly! 2 hours later, all of the clients had left already. The other workers and I looked at each other and had the same thought, "What is that man waiting for, there's no one in here now!" One of the girls walked up to him and realized that he was sleeping the whole time with his hat covering his eyes. Finally we realized we all knew him as a regular 2-3 week client. We woke him up and asked him what we could do for him. He said, "I am here for a manicure." When he looked at the clock he didn't realize it was that late. He didn't even know that he had been sleeping for 2 hours. We felt so bad because one of us could've take care him way before then. We just apologized him. He was laughing and felt embarrassed that he fell asleep while waiting!
