It's been really hard rebuilding. The things that made me successful the first time aren't doing so well this time!

I have currently offered all these, through craigslist, the salons website, Facebook, and word of mouth. I can't figure out what my deal is. :/ I usually do really well for myself!

I offered first hair cuts free to friends, and first hair cuts $5.00 for friends of friends.  (just included the cuts and a quick style out, nothing fancy).   But anyways it was a way to bring in new clients to get my name out there.. I started out with one friend, she got in two of her friends, they each got in a few of theirs, and so forth.. I do it out of the house like I said before.. on the side.. but I've been getting about 10 clients a week give or take, and considering I'm not set up for a salon, that's not bad.   After the first cut obviously I charge more, but all the cuts I've done, I've rebooked on.

tell your BEST established clients to billboard for you..and that if/when someone comes in that was referred by that client, give that client a little extra specialness..however you want to, be it in a one-time discount on a color service, or a blowout on a special date-night, etc.

i was lucky, in that my BEST clients were also picky about who they sent to me...they knew me well enough to know what/who i would put up with, or click with.

^^let me rephrase that suggestion..give the established client a special something, not the new client.
