SELF-CARE FOR HAIRDRESSERS: HOW TO AVOID STRESS & BURNOUT AND STEP INTO THE PROFESSIONAL YOU WERE MEANT TO BE

Book Launch

What what would you say is the biggest issue in our industry that we don’t talk about? My first book Self-Care For Hairdressers: How To Avoid Stress And Burnout, And Step Into The Professional You Were Meant To Be, is  finally here! This book is the first in a series and will be an essential for any salon, beauty school, hairdresser, and salon owner library.

You look up and your hair is even looking like it did three years ago?

You, the hairdresser are the focus of my relaunch of this site and blog. You are who I have in mind when I write in the morning, after I close my eyes and contemplate.  I ask myself, what does our industry need?  What do hairdressers want?  What would make their lives easier?  How may I be of service?  Are you ready for the answer?
