One of the easiest ways to find a salon is ask someone likeminded, asking just anyone where they go to get their hair done simply won’t work, maybe it will maybe it won’t but one would imagine its a hit and miss. If you know someone that has similar taste as you, likes to look after themselves then it may be the best bet to ask them for recommendations!
Rememeber just because a lot of people go to a place, be it a salon or a “place” doesn’t mean its right for you, or anyone for that matter. A lot of the time some people a certain place is cool or the best simply because they have not experienced anything else.
If you have not ever loved your hair, then chances are the salon your going to is wrong for you, its kind of that basic.
