How to find a good hair salon ?

Everyone wants the best colour, cut, style, blowout etc possible but how do you go about finding a competent hair straightening hairdresser..

The answer is word of mouth. If not in person ask the question on facebook.

Google reviews can easily be faked now so I try figure out if the review/s for that business are legitimate. Google reviews are flawed, anyone can open up multiple Gmail accounts and pump up their reviews.

Referrals/ word of mouth is the most reliable.  I do not trust the work I see on Instagram as every pic is filtered and photo shopped.
