The Modern Grapevine

The advent of the internet, then social media, has forged an intelligent beauty consumer—one who is on top of the latest trends, who researches product ingredients herself, and who always has an eye out for a value-added service or product.

For salons like Hello Gorgeous! with five locations in South Jersey, frequent promotions have been instrumental in increasing client frequency after guests started stretching their appointments during the Recession.  The salon’s Facebook page has been key in alerting clientele to new promotional offers on services and products.
