If they have re-opened their doors two weeks after their colleagues in the rest of Quebec, the salon owners of the greater Montreal region could be better prepared thanks to the advice of their brothers and sisters of other regions.
“The hairdressers have really been united as a family during this pandemic and it has really helped. If you knew the number of messages that I had from my [colleagues] who were able to help me to investigate the situation. It has really been able to prepare well with good shots of an inch of our friends.”
The psychological benefits
Furthermore, beyond the aesthetic appearance of the salon, some clients enjoy the presence of their hairdresser and the experience can be important on the social level, was entrusted to Mr. Kyle.
“We realized that to go to the hairdresser it is above all the beauty treatments, but these are confidants who are always talking about and to whom we will entrust our experiences.”
