Turn your break room into a learning lounge

Too often, when clients don't show up for an appointment the stylists don't utilize this time wisely. It's easy to get exhausted and bored doing nothing, because waiting time can really drag. Use this space for re-energizing and learning. Put in a computer with Internet access. Add mannequins and tripods. Not only will this refocus the salon culture, but also owners will be ensuring that their talented team is keeping up with the latest styles and trends without setting foot outside the salon.
