Not too long ago, we discussed the use of restaurant menu boards. At that time, we mentioned that organization and the avoidance of insider lingo were key elements for a successful presentation. But the rules shift slightly when we design menu boards for hair salons.
Hair Salons Need Menu Boards?
The use of menu boards in unisex hair care salons is a standard. There are a few establishments – typically the upscale spa and salon as well as the down to earth barbershop – that do not use the boards. The former operate upon the recommendations of a stylist while the latter usually revolve around the same request. For all other settings, a board serves three distinct purposes.
- Present service options. The majority of companies that fall into this category offer shampoo, haircut, and blow-dry services. Add-ons include trims and different specialty packages. To ensure that the customer can pinpoint the desired service level quickly, it makes sense to break down the information accordingly.
- Introduce services or products. Many salons bring in visiting nail care experts and aestheticians on a rotating basis. Incorporate information about these services and offer information about days and times of availability.
- Reveal a price point. Cost is a major factor in most of the transactions at a hair salon. While basic haircuts follow a price formula, the add-ons may require more detail when displaying costs.
Because prices and available services may change periodically, we recommend the layout of a board that allows for modifications.
- Framed prints. In this scenario, you select a set of frames that fits in perfectly with your salon’s ambiance. For some settings, this may require the use of antique picture frames. Others will prefer contemporary aluminum snap frames. We print your menu options on card stock for durability. Another way of doing so is the use of printed acrylic boards without frames. When you need a re-do, we change the information and create a new look.
- Boards with vinyl overlays. Choose from aluminum, acrylic, PVC, or sign foam. We imprint the overlay with the information and apply it to the material. When you want to update the selections, we only need to change out the overlay.
- Vinyl wall graphic. We like a product named wallCHALKER. It is a black plastic that has the texture of a blackboard. You can write on it with standard or liquid chalk. We can imprint some or all of the information. This material option lets you customize the setup yourself if you so desire. It installs like any other wall graphic, which means that we can shape it to take on any form you like.
