5 Salon Promotion Ideas a Cut Above the Rest

Putting your hair in someone else’s hands takes trust. Sure it always grows back, but no one wants to look like a muppet while waiting for that to happen. So the relationship that we build with our hairdressers is sacred. Not only are they responsible for our look, but they also harbor the details of our lives. Should we take that career leap? Make a move on that crush? We need a hairdresser that has the answers! Establishing that bond with new clients requires thoughtful salon promotion ideas. 

We’ll talk about the best client gifts from hair stylists that inspire trust right from the first impression. Make the cut with new visitors using these salon marketing ideas and tips:

Salon Promotional Items & Marketing Ideas

1. Promotional Rose Gold Pens

Customers will be entrusting you with their style, so you want to convey that you’re up to date with the trends. That means having a stylish booth, wearing stylish clothes, and of course, using stylish promotions. The Mineral Alpha Soft Touch Stylus Pen with Rose Gold Trim is the perfect salon promotional item to have in a dish at your booth. Customers will be excited to have a rose gold pen, and you’ll love that they’ll have your contact info when they’re ready for their next appointment.

2. Volumizer Salon Comb

When it comes to promotional hair products, our beauty tip is to lather it on. This Volumizer Salon Comb makes it easy and affordable to promote your salon. Clients will love the wide-set bristles that are gentle on hair and stimulate new hair growth by massaging the scalp. Feature your name and number on the comb to make setting appointments simple.  

3. Stemless Wine Glasses with Salon Name or Logo

We’re not saying that the way to your client’s heart is offering a glass of rosé with their hair treatment, but…it can’t hurt, right? Display your branding on this Vinello Stemless Wine Glass and let clients take it home with them. They’ll have your contact info at hand on these salon promotional items for years to come.

4. Customized Trendy Tote Bags

For especially fun salon promotion ideas, consider branded tote bags. Incentivize higher orders by allowing customers to take home a custom Metallic Accent Addie Tote Bag when they purchase at least $50 worth of promotional hair products. Not only do they spend more to get it, but the tote itself will continue to promote your business.

5. Promotional Grande Travel Mugs

Since everyone loves trendy travel mugs, why not create custom reusable tumblers for your salon? Clients can purchase an insulated Grande 16 oz. Ree Stainless Steel Tumbler with Lid in your choice of color at your merchandise table. Just add your branding to the mugs for salon promotional items that help your name travel.

Whether clients are coming in for a cut, color, or blowout, they’ll feel safe in your caring hands thanks to these thoughtful salon promotion ideas. Let us know how you keep customers coming back by tagging us in pictures of your salon promotional items and marketing that work on Facebook and Instagram.
