At a great salon, you as the client, will NEVER know if one of us is having an utterly crappy day. No way, no how. We put on our big girl panties, give you our biggest smiles and head right into happy mode. We are actors of the highest caliber. Because really, when you go to get coiffed, would you want to deal with a stylist having a bad day? Um, no!
As an aside, many years ago, in a galaxy far, far away I had a stylist whose haircuts were absolutely dependent on her mood that day. A good mood = good cut, a bad mood = really?! You did that to me? I didn't stay with her...
In any event, as the Salon Coordinator, I am usually THE first face you see - you lucky, lucky client - and as such, I find it is my primary responsibility to wish you a lovely day.
If you feel like today isn't gonna be one of those days, might I suggest borrowing an idea from the above list. A cheat sheet for a lovely day.
I sincerely DO wish you a lovely day! Have at it.
My head was bopping right along to the beat.
