I rent a beauty room in a hairdresser and a woman had brought her little girl in for a haircut, she hadn't been in the door two minutes when she said to me - "I just thought I'd let you know, not because I'm bitching but just coz you need to know the information, theres a salon in 'town a' one in 'town b' and one person who works from home in the area who charge around £18 for gel nails. Just thought I'd let you know what everyone else charges" Slightly offended because for a start I know my competition and what people in my area offer. But now she's made me worry that people are just out to seek a cheap deal when I know that if they come to me I'll do a good treatment at a fair price (I charge £30 for bio sculpture overlays, which is less than what bio recommend). But it's got me thinking should I lower my prices to be more competitive? I've always said I would never do that! The salon is in a very gossipy town and now I'm worried that all the mums are standing at the school gate talking about how my prices are too high! Am i making a mountain out of a mole hill here? Should I stick to my guns as I know I offer the best service? or should I lower myself just to get more clients through the door? Sorry for the long message she just made me so mad!
