How it works

What types of salons can benefit from background music?+-

Hairdressers aren't the only ones who can benefit from playing salon background music. Background music can benefit a wide range of different beauty salons and parlours from hair and nail salons to tattoo parlours. Naturally, the type of salon you run, its brand and target demographic will all directly influence the type of music you play. Music can be such a core element of self-identification for so many people, it's no wonder that music plays such a huge part of the experience at a beauty salon. According to research by MusicWorks, approximately 80% of their 2000 participants claimed that beauty salon music is important to the salon's atmosphere. Whether you're primarily focused on tattoos and piercings or hair, nails and massage, background music for salons can be used to enhance customer experience. It's all about playing the right salon background music.

Luckily, we have a team of music experts on hand to help you fully manage your music brand!

How can my salon background music enhance the customer experience?+-

Everyone knows that beauty parlour and hairdresser clients are more likely to return on a regular basis if they find the salon or parlour to be a relaxing and welcoming environment. The beauty business is built on customer loyalty and relies on return visits to grow.

Music is a mood-evoking trigger and salons, no matter what type, are all about pampering the customer and making them feel as comfortable as possible. As different types of music affect moods in different ways, your choice of salon background music needs to specifically be tailored to the atmosphere that you're trying to create as well as your usual demographic. Low-volume music that's soft and slow-paced can soothe customers and give them a sense of tranquillity; perfect for spa and relaxation services such as massage and reflexology. This type of beauty salon music can also be used in the waiting areas for the spa treatments to build anticipation and calm your clients before the treatment.

However, lively beauty salons and hairdressers that encourage conversation and friendly interaction between customers and stylists may see more benefit in playing upbeat pop music. The type of music you decide to play at your salon will vary greatly depending on your brand and demographic but, undeniably, the right choice in background music can help to build your reputation and customer loyalty.

What advantages does using salon background music bring?+-

Our background music system for hairdressers offers up the best music mixes for your venue, whilst giving you the ability to be in control of the musical vibe that is played. Using our web UI on any internet-connected device, you can choose from hundreds of different mixes to tailor a wide variety of businesses and venue locations - including mixes that feature all the popular new releases and decades of chart music.

With a tailored mix, you can be certain to keep your customers happy in the waiting room and offer up that music 'feel' that'll settle a customer into their hair and beauty treatment. If you run a tattoo shop, your customers can feel more comfortable getting inked as they distract themselves from the procedure with their favourite music. Ensuring that your customers have a great experience at your salon will increase the likelihood of them recommending the salon to their friends and returning for their next hair appointment, manicure, pedicure, massage, piercing or tattoo!
