Hi, Marnie here, as a salon owner myself, I know that running a successful salon requires a lot of things. One of them is organisation, and strict procedures. Not every salon has a booking system on a computer, and if you don’t, look into one now.
Before you download your free salon appointment book template, remember: this template is in 15-minute time slots from 7am to 8pm, Monday to Friday.
It’s designed to be an easy, temporary replacement to your booking system on your computer or iPad. One spill of a coffee, and your appointments are lost!
How to Stop No-Shows
One thing, before you download your free salon appointment book template, is to stop your no-shows. Studies have shown that people value and cherish products they spend money on, versus products they get for free. In other words, when you put your credit card towards an appointment, you’re going to show up. So the next time you’re booking in a client, respectfully ask for either a deposit to secure the appointment (which you take over the phone), or ask for their credit card information in-case they don’t show.
Use this script:
“Now, Jolie, for me to secure this appointment on Friday at 11am, I do need a deposit of $50. This secures your time and appointment, and guarantees you’ll be getting the best service we can offer you.”
If they’re uncomfortable, or against a deposit, you can try one of two things:
- Insist you can’t book the appointment, as it’s salon procedure:
“I’m sorry, Jolie, but it is salon policy. I do need this deposit for me to secure your appointment. How would you like to pay for the deposit today?”
2. Ask for their credit card information, but insist you’ll only charge if they don’t arrive
“I’m sorry, Jolie, but it is salon policy. I do need this deposit for me to secure your appointment. What I can do, instead, is take your credit card information on file, and only charge you if you don’t show up for the appointment. How does this sound?”

Hі there, after гeading this awesome poѕt і
am also glad to sharе my experience here with mates.
Whats up are using WordPress for your blog platform?
I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your
own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Yes, it’s just a simple WordPress platform.
Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance
from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
We use Divi, and do all our editing on the front end.
I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your
weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s
rare to see a great blog like this one these days.
This is a good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere.
Brief but very accurate info… Appreciate your sharing this one.
A must read post!
