Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
By suggesting other alternatives and educating the client as to why their original choice wouldn't be as complimentary [in] my professional opinion.
For many people, a trip to the salon is a way to enjoy some "me time." What supplemental courtesies do you offer to make guests feel relaxed?
A Christian atmosphere, great customer service, with much consideration. Aiming to please, sooth, and satisfy all of our clients' needs. We understand that a trip to the salon is a mini get away, and we put forth our best efforts to make it worth it.
What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
It's important to keep your hair trimmed [of] split ends to avoid thinning and promote hair growth. A healthy head of hair can be spotted miles away.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are known for getting our clients in and out with little to no waiting. We welcome walk-ins, but to ensure little to no waiting, we highly recommend booking appointments with a 24-hour notice.
The highly trained stylists at Barnette’s Salon are accustomed to hearing compliments from satisfied clients, but in the past few years they've also had to get used to reading praise in print. Along with being named a "Top 100 Salon 2011" by Elle Magazine and "Reader's Choice for Best Salon 2012" by Mississippi Magazine, the salon––which boasts three locations––has also earned the title of "Best Beauty Shop of Jackson 2012" from the Jackson Free Press](http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/news/2012/jan/25/best-of-jackson-2012-urban-living/), who proclaimed, "the staff is not only friendly and professional, but also immensely talented, consisting of some of the top stylists in town."
Those top stylists owe much of their success to the salon's training program, which divvies the staff into five levels, according to experience, and inducts new stylists only after they have endured at least one year of extensive training and learned to identify each hair color by its smell. Specialists if precision cuts and custom color, the team reaches for products from Aveda, Bumble and Bumble, MoroccanOil, and CareTrico, and add instant length and volume using 100% human hair extensions by Great Lengths. For tresses in need of a new texture, they can also calm unruly curls with Keratin smoothing treatments or set strands with permanent waves to help cut down on time spent dealing with hot curling irons or hot rollers.
