I can't think of a salon or spa owner around who actually enjoys having open slots in the daily appointment booklet. No appointments, no money coming in. That's where technology comes into play, as more and more salons send email or text blasts announcing vacancies in the books.
Every few days or so, I get an email from an out-of-town salon that I used to frequent back in the day. While I am no longer a client, if I still lived nearby, no doubt I'd take them up on their offer every now and then. How about you? Do you get last-minute requests in your inbox, and if so, do you partake, or do the messages get a prompt click to the trash?
