Sally’s Salon is a casual computer game that lets players manage the day-to-day operations of a salon. In this game, Sally has finished beautician training and has set aside a bit of cash so she can open her first salon. Her goal is to start small, and then eventually work her way into making her beauty business the best in town.
In Sally’s Salon, the ultimate goal is to make the customers happy. These customers come to the salon with various hairstyle preferences and the player’s goal is to help Sally attend to their needs. The customers’ needs are indicated in their facial expressions so the player has to pay attention to these expressions and assist them to the proper station. If the customer is satisfied, the player earns a heart. The more satisfied a customer is, the more tips she will give. If a customer is left waiting, her patience runs out, and so does her satisfaction.
Customers give their payment and tip at the final station. The salon must earn a certain amount of money in a level before advancing to the next one. Players can use the accumulated money to purchase upgrades and hire more salon-savvy employees.
