Promotions are a fantastic way to bring new and repeat business into your salon. They give your clients an extra special reason to book an appointment, and they entice potential clients to give your salon a try. There are so many opportunities to create excitement around holidays, themes and important times in people’s lives; promos invite your guests to connect with your salon throughout sentimental times of the year.
It’s not always easy to come up with ideas, though… Which is why we put together a list of ideas to help you plan a year’s worth of monthly promotions. The below suggestions can be easily modified to fit your salon’s unique services.
January – New Year, New You

December – Party Primping
Holiday parties mean glitz and glam, and we have the perfect products for just that. Stop in this month to shop from our expanded holiday product assortment, and put your name in a drawing for a free makeover!
Once you have decided which promos to offer, be sure to market these special deals! Put together a calendar of reminders and allow your promotions to run for the full month. Use social media to help spread the word, and make sure to tell every client who walks through the door what your upcoming specials are going to be. Your guests will look forward to every special offer and will love celebrating with you all year long!
