Key Benefits of Hair Salon SMS Solutions

SMS solutions for hair and beauty salons are scalable and easy to implement.

Better management of appointments

This is probably the most important feature of SMS for beauty salons. Use automated SMS to reduce the number of no-shows and to squeeze in last-minute appointments.

More repeat customers & positive feedback

Following up with thoughtful messages, running feedback SMS polls, and loyalty discounts will encourage customers to choose your beauty salon again and again.

Effective marketing on a budget

Most hair and beauty salons struggle with small marketing budgets. SMS will enable you to use this budget to its maximum potential.

More referrals from happy clients

Send timely SMS follow-ups with unique discounts to encourage customers to recommend your beauty salon to their friends.

Cost and time-effective communication tool

The most time-consuming part of beauty salon SMS marketing is the initial set-up. After that, it runs on its own and at a minimal cost.

Can also be used for internal operations

SMS also has great operational value, allowing you to communicate schedule changes or last-minute news to staff members.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some beauty salon mobile text marketing strategies may sound overwhelming at first.
The good news is that most TextMagic features require no coding knowledge and are easy to set up.

It’s super easy to send documents via text:

  • Send documents as SMS attachments: from the “Compose” tab, insert your document as an “SMS attachment”. TextMagic will convert your file into a clickable link that can be opened directly from the text message.
  • Send price lists and service offers as short links: if your salon also has a site that is regularly updated with new prices or offers you can insert short URLs into your texts. TextMagic integrates with tools such as bit.ly and Google URL shortener.

Studies show that sending a reminder message 24 – 48 hours before an appointment can increase appointment adherence by 70%.

Here’s how you can automate hair or beauty appointment reminders with TextMagic:

Step #1: Log in to your TextMagic account or sign up for a free 30-day trial.

Step #2: Head over to the Zapier Integrations page. TextMagic integrates with multiple calendar and booking apps (e.g., BookingKoala, YouCanBook.me, etc.). Select your favorite app from the available Zapier integrations.

Step #3: You will have to define a rule between the TextMagic app and booking/calendar app to send out your appointment reminder automatically. Here are a few examples of Zapier flows:

  • Trigger: New booking -> Action: Send message (for confirming new bookings).
  • Trigger: Updated booking -> Action: Send message (for appointment updates).
  • Trigger: Time before/after appointment -> Action: Send message (for appointment reminders).
  • Trigger: Appointment rescheduled/canceled -> Send message.

Note: Some integrations are only available for specific booking apps, but you can integrate TextMagic’s API directly into your software for more advanced automation features.

OPTIONAL: If customers reply to cancel their appointment, you can create a secondary rule that automatically deletes the appointment from your calendar, thus giving you more control over your schedule.
