Client Appreciation Day: In celebration of Client Appreciation Day on May 11, each client who came into the salon received a red rose as a thank you.
Earth Month Promo: During April/May, the salon hosted a Remember the Earth promo. Clients who brought in an old dryer that doesn’t work or a used brush would receive 25% off anything new to replace it. “We worked with Creative Beauty Concepts to recycle tools or fix them up to pass along to our assistant team to have,” says Hall.
Rock and Roll Hair: Red 7 was the official hair salon of Pitchford Music Festival (with H&M sponsoring us) and at Lollapalooza. “Clients love to hear about these experiences,” says Hall.
Pre-Booking Contest: To encourage pre-booking, Red 7 is giving away a $500 Villy Custom Bike at each salon through a client raffle. Any client who pre-books their next two appointments is eligible to win. Having the bike on display really encouraged pre—booking, says Hall.
Random Acts of Kindness: During 2013, the salon celebrated Random Acts of Kindness by awarding a client each with something nice determined by Hall and the general manager Becky. “Examples of this would include: free shampoo/conditioner, flowers & chocolates, dinner for two to a neighborhood restaurant, free blow dryer, free haircut service,” says Hall. “That was a lot of fun and clients loved it. It's nice to surprise someone with something like this!”
