Feeling fed up and disillusioned. I am a Gents hairdresser from the UK, arrived early September 08, working at the Men's Room on Hindley Street. Since starting work I have been relying on passing trade, however this has not been proving reliable as I have been mostly getting backpackers and out of state people, who inevitably do not become regular clientelle.
I have done numerous promotional leaflet drops throughout the City, offering discounted rates ($20 a shampoo haircut) but still have not had much success at building a regular clientelle. Although the customers that have been in the salon have been more than satisfied.
The problem can not be the location or the price of the haircuts in the salon because the guy that I work with has a full appointment book everyday!
The couple of guys who have supported me on this site have put on recommendations (thanks guys you know who you are) and I also have an advert on.
We are living in the City at the moment and do not have transport, so going mobile is not an option for me at the moment.
Any advice or support would be greatly appreciated.
