i have always known most hair salons to be closed on mondays.....most are where i live. saying that though....there are a few now that are starting to open, i just thought it was because of the working on saturadys and it being a quiet day.
Where I'm at in Canada they never use to be closed for years ,until they started complaining about the Barbering association .The Barbers here always were closed on Mondays, now they both have the choice if they want to be open or not. So, with the barbers it was that they worked saturdays too & it gave them a weekend off.
Most of the salons in this area close Mondays also - I work normal hours Monday 9-7 and am usually quite busy. Would be nice to have an extra day off but would miss quite a bit of business if I did. We open 9-7 every weekday and 9-6 Saturday.
Same here in the SW - all closed on a Monday 'cos they work Saturdays. Having said that, my hairdresser opens on a Monday and closes on a Wednesday. I think that's a good idea, because business is good on a Monday as she is the only one open locally.
My father in law has been a barber for years (has his own shop) and is always closed on a Sunday and Monday, the same as the hairdressers I used to work in, it's because we used to work on a Saturday and we're all entitled to 2 days off per week aren't we? :wink2:
