Pre-booking can be difficult for many hairstylists. It’s can be a little daunting to ask clients to make a commitment beforehand. However, pre-booking can add so much value to your business. It increases repeat customers, the frequency of their visits, and ultimately helps your bottom line. Once you and your clients get into the habit of pre-booking, you’ll be able to have more long-term client relationships and more frequent appointments.
