Discovering how one little app’s visual storytelling is creating a positive buzz for other shops will help you enhance yours. We’ll help you refine a cohesive strategy for building and supervising your online following.

Image Resource

Daysmart Salon guest management tools include handy picture cataloging and filtering functions for desktop users and a new hair salon app for quick mobile access. Besides providing references for past and future looks, the Client Photos feature makes sharing before-and-after shots on Instagram a snap.

Customer Development

Displaying artistry through Instagram images, updating frequency, and results vary by salon. Here are a few success stories we’ve found:


Instagram recently increased its max duration for videos to a full minute. Show your clients exactly what they can do in under 60 seconds when they’re in a rush!

Follower Insights

Fans aren’t seeking examples of perfect hair, makeup, and lives. They’re interested in real experiences, information, and comments helping them feel they know you as a relatable person. Increasing content substance, tips, and inspirational value gain better responses. Themes like #MakeoverMonday and #TBT (Throwback Thursday) intensify eagerness to find out what’s in store next week.

In general, viewers tend to prefer colorful and concise presentations. Featuring popular celebrities in images can boost your potential like count, but showing you clients how you can help them achieve those same looks will have them looking for your Book Now button.

Growth Tips

Profile: Your bio needs identifying details about your specialties (styling and coloring, for example) along with your city and state.

Images: Fewer memes, more signature hair photos. Layout from Instagram helps you feature dramatic before-and-after pictures that encourage positive feelings about makeovers. Repost your favorite looks after red carpet events and award shows on your Instagram page (crediting/tagging responsible creative parties, of course.)

Tags: Help followers locate your work by using up to four right hashtags. Include your salon’s name, city, and descriptions reflecting your content.

Timing: Post every morning and/or evening around breakfast and after-dinner times when most salon pros and consumers can access Instagram easily. Sunday posts get the most traffic and engagement! A lot of coffee and the right filter can go a long way on your day off.

Engagement: Follow your salon peers online. Participate actively. Your followers’ feeds will display whatever you like, broadening your fan base. Keep in mind that Instagram’s activity is 98.9% likes and only 1.1% comments.
