Do I still need a salon website?

In Todays’ World of Social Media, do I still need a website for my Salon..?

A business’s online presence, regardless of industry, can have a massive impact on its success.

In this day and age, some businesses still don’t realise that a majority of their customers will visit their website before making an appointment even after seeing a social media post.


Because customers want more detailed information and they view a hair and beauty salon with a professional website to be more trusted, reliable and of a better quality than those who don’t have a website or a poorly designed, outdated website.

So, Yes, having a memorable, beautiful, professionally designed and supported website for your hairdressing or beauty salon can be highly beneficial if not essential.

Having a strong online presence, particularly a website, can be make or break for generating more revenue. Yes, the quality of your website impacts results, but the purpose of this post is to stress the importance of making sure you have a professionally developed, continuously supported and managed website for your Salon.

It is for this reason alone that ClientWave Creative was born….
