Bend or Leave
Why do you subject yourself to needless chatter about how you are not fitting into the norm of the salon industry? Can you experience success in the beauty industry if you are a renegade and can’t quite mold yourself to the culture of the salon where you work? You or your salon can get caught in the game of following the “current” or “hip” salon trends and lose sight of who you are and what the very character and fabric of your success could be. The pressure to conform is huge.
Another Beauty Industry Secret
Besides the lack of self-care in the beauty industry, there is yet another beauty industry secret that sits in the room like a huge elephant in the room, and really, why don’t we talk about it? Well, it is easy to understand why, your parents quite possibly told you not, and surely you don’t want your peers to know, because you barely are able to let yourself know. The shame is huge. You can’t let your clients know, as you want to appear successful. You you won’t let your parents know, as they would say, “I told you so.” So you suffer silently. Read on before you once again say, “I’ll deal with it later.”
Help Yourself and Your Community
Do you ever wonder how you can best utilize social media for the growth of your salon, or of you as an independent stylist? Do you ever wonder why your posts may not equate to sales? You ask yourself, “I guess I better post pictures of my toes or my pooch.” If you are a hairstylist at this moment in history, you are more than likely on at least one social media platform, if not several. Perhaps you post on topics such as the restaurant you ate at last night, or selfies of yourself and friends, or maybe even of hairstyles you like or a hair color you just gave your client.
