Prom Queen for a Day

posted by | April 10, 2013 | 11:55 AM

Prom Queen for a DayNow that prom is an industry in itself, wouldn’t it be great to make the event a turnkey operation? Paul Mitchell offers exactly that this season with Prom Survival Style Kits for three trends: Forget Me Knot, Queen Bee and Swept Away. Seven out of ten girls get their prom hair done at a salon—make sure your salon is the one they choose!

INVITE YOUR CLIENTS 
Let prom be the gateway for a new client relationship!

• Develop a teen menu of trendy prom looks, and make sure all

stylists are trained.

• Offer a free gift with purchase, such as purse-sized Super Clean Extra hair spray.

• Create a referral program that offers discounts for guests who refer a friend.

• Have each teen fill out a client card to capture info such as her cell number and her birthday.

• Suggest a new everyday look and rebook before she leaves!

ENSURE THE RSVP

• A Paul Mitchell ad will appear in the prom edition of Seventeen Magazine.

• A cohesive social media campaign will promote QR codes on each kit that will link

to custom “how-to” videos for maintaining the look the day after.

With the purchase of the Express Ion Crimp, salons receive a business-building booklet, which includes a downloadable “how-to” style guide for stylists, POP to drive traffic into the salon and a stylist station client menu with each Prom Survival hair look.
