Voices of staff working at Hair Quest
The perfect place where you can take good care of yourself and your customers.
Q : Why did you decide to work in Hair Quest?
A : From my previous experience dealing with customers, I have always been questioning the way that traditional hair salons rush their services while keeping other customers waiting just for their own convenience. Hair Quest appeared to be an ideal workplace to me, as I heard that hair stylists are able to provide one-on-one service to customers.
At the same time, I also felt that I was having a poor work-life balance in my previous job. Therefore, I decided to work in a company with reasonably shorter working hours.
Q : Is there anything you want to share about working in Hair Quest?
A : After I started working here, I began to have more time and effort to serve my customers. I also managed to maintain work-life balance, so that I can easily switch on and off between my work and personal life.
Q : What are your thoughts on working in a hair salon that provides service on a one-on-one basis?
A : I really enjoy being able to serve 1 customer at a time, as it allows me to easily listen and understand my customer's needs, so that I can concentrate on providing quality service. Also, it is always a satisfying experience to have the same person handling every step from shampooing to finishing for the entire service.
Q : What are the common types of customers in Hair Quest?
A : Most of our customers are nice and friendly. There are customers who come with specific needs and want to seek our professional advice too.
