A new poll suggests that a popular Canadian beauty salon chain is the place to go if you want to feel more “realistic” in your life.
The Canadian Society of Cosmetic Surgeons released the results of the survey Tuesday, asking 1,000 people about their favourite beauty salon chains across the country.
The results were divided into three categories, with the top three being those that have the most satisfied customers.
In the second category, beauty-related businesses were deemed to have the best customer service, while in the third category, the most “realist” options were also favoured.
“It’s very important to have a real and authentic feel to your life,” said Jill Leblanc, the executive director of the Society of Cosmetology and Performing Arts.
“When you’re in a salon you can’t just get on with what you’re doing, you have to be realistic and really take it seriously and take the time to create an experience for yourself that’s authentic to you.”
The survey found that two-thirds of respondents in the first category said they would choose to stay at a beauty salon over other places they might be able to get a haircut or manicure.
The survey was conducted from Feb. 24 to Feb. 25 by the Society for Cosmetological and Performed Arts.
While the survey’s findings are based on a sample of 2,878 Canadians, the results may not necessarily apply to all Canadians.
While Leblac is confident that the survey is representative of Canadians, she cautions that there is a chance that the results are skewed by a large number of respondents who have chosen not to answer the survey.
“People are very honest in that they are not looking for a certain answer,” Leblans said.
“I think that’s why we’re finding so many people who say that they wouldn’t go to a certain beauty salon.
They may be able-bodied people or they may be a millennial and they don’t have the same type of lifestyle as the younger generations, but they just don’t want to go to that kind of place.”
In the end, the survey results may give us some insight into which beauty salon brands offer the most authentic experiences.
“Our hope is that it helps to educate people about what it means to be authentic in the beauty industry,” Lebranc said.
