10 Technologies Transforming Salon Business

By Rosanne Ullman and Stacey Soble | 07/27/2011 10:54:00 AM

 

Technology is changing everything about the way you interact with your clients, from how you attract them to how you reward them to their individualized experience in your salon. SALON TODAY digs deep, showing you how early-adopting salons are embracing the latest technology for an improved salon/client relationship.

Only one thing seems to stay the same about technology—it’s always changing, constantly advancing. What seemed unimaginable yesterday, is fact today, and outdated tomorrow. 

The latest advances—cloud computing, QR codes, iPads, group couponing, social media and geo-location games—offer a world of possibility for salon business, but sorting through all those possibilities and picking what’s right for your salon is quite a chore.
