Building a Strong Client Relationship

In all walks of life our relationships are important, and this includes the relationships that you build with your clients.

The hair and beauty industry aren’t just about providing services, it’s also about building connections with your clients. Strong relationships with your clients help to build trust and loyalty, it creates a long-term partnership.

See our tips below on how to build relationships with your clients…

Learn to Listen

Active listening isn’t just for the therapy professions, it’s also a fundamental skill for those in the hair and beauty industry. You need to really listen to your clients to know how you can help them. Make sure you ask questions in return to reinforce what it is they are telling you, that way it shows that you understand what they want and that you will be able to deliver the best results for them.

Honesty and Transparency

Be honest and transparent with your clients when it comes to pricing and services. Communicating these effectively will prevent any misunderstandings and ensures that the client knows exactly where they stand and what they can expect. Managing expectations helps to avoid disappointment and build trust.

Know Them

We see multiple clients day in day out, so it can be a challenge to remember every fine detail about them. But, making notes on their records about their favourite beverages, magazines, little details about events they have told you, can go a long way in making that client feel appreciated by you. 

Stay Consistent

You want to aim to provide the same level of service every time a client visits you. Keep your standards high, and maintain those standards with every client, every time. This helps to build trust and confidence in you and your business. 

Keep Your Cool

Every business receives complaints! It’s how you handle complaints that matters. Handling a compliant poorly can destroy client relationships. You need to make sure that you address concerns in a professional manner, offer a solution, and show commitment to improving.


Testimonials and reviews are a fantastic business tool, so encourage feedback from your clients. Client feedback can help you improve, know where your strengths and weaknesses are, and it shows that you care about their opinions.

Strong relationships are the cornerstone of business success! By listening, managing expectations, being professional, and staying consistent, you will build strong relationships that will benefit both you and your clients.
