Salon Best Practices: Post An Open & Closed Sign


This is a simple low tech touch in a high tech world.  The old classic flip-over open and closed sign still works great. It is a wonderful throw back to a simple time and it simply gets the message across clearly.  You can see it before you get out of the car.  You can buy one for three dollars.  You will use the same one for forty years.  How many things work that well for that long for that little?  Forty years form now we will not even remember your latest iPhone.
