We’ve all been there… split ends, faded colour, that weird cowlick that just won’t be tamed — total hair frustration. Sometimes it comes up at the oddest times and you just feel that NEED to get in to the salon ASAP. But stop for a minute and THINK: is showing up at the salon impulsively REALLY the best way to get what you want? Yeah, I know – booking your appointment ahead of time can be a chore, but your hair should have regularly scheduled upkeep, and the best way to do this is to plan ahead. You wouldn’t take your car in for service without an appointment, so why would you do the same with your ‘do?

Here are just a few reasons why booking your next appointment ahead of time with your stylist at Roka is the way to go:

  1. Pre-booking sets you up for total success. This is an important one. By booking your next appointment before you walk out the door, you can be assured that your first-choice appointment date and time is available. You can also be sure that your stylist will have more than enough time to accommodate all of your needs without trying to squeeze your appointment into a requested time slot. This makes for the absolute best service possible and creates a situation that sets your stylist up to give you perfect results each and every time you visit the salon.
  2. No more hair rage! We’ve all been there – it’s been way too long since you were last in, And your growth can no longer be camouflaged, or your hair just won’t “lay right” anymore. By booking your appointment in advance, your spot will be secured and you can get in right on schedule to freshen your colour or get your hair cut. Your stylist can recommend the best amount of time in between visits to get the most longevity out of your hair without getting to the point where you wish it was appropriate to wear a toque to a fancy dinner.
  3. Stylist comfortability. NEVER underestimate the importance of this! Think about it this way: let’s say you’re working at your job, doing what you know you have to do in order to get the work done when suddenly an unexpected client shows up. You KNOW you have tons of other work to do, but you also know that you can’t just ignore the guy who just walked through the door. Does that sound frustrating to you? Well, that’s exactly how stylists feel when someone without an appointment walks through the door. Booked appointments allow the stylist to prepare a time schedule in order to properly handle your mane concerns, as well as discuss any issues you may be having, as well as make a plan for services. Walk-ins can disrupt this timeline and cause undue strain and stress for your stylist.


So, long story short: plan ahead and pre-book your next appointment. Your stylist, and your hair, will thank you.
