Lighting in Beauty Salons

Does Your Salon Have Poor Lighting?

A few weeks ago, I tried out a new hairstylist at a salon I'd never been to before. While I thought the cut was OK, the lighting within the salon was atrocious. Lines and wrinkles I didn't know about before magically appeared. Under-eye circles that didn't seem so bad when I left the house were amplified twofold. What joy.

Could it be that salon owner was using cheaper, less-than-flattering lighting to cut costs? Maybe it was that the colorists need a certain type of lighting for better hair color results? Whatever the case, I don't think I'm alone when I say that going to a salon should make you feel good about yourself, not the complete opposite. Have you had a similar experience or not? If it's the latter, lucky you.
