 The Hair Salon: A challenge to stylist’s

 

What are the greatest challenges to stylist and salon owners and managers?Building up and retaining clients, having that trusting relationship built on skill honesty creative talent! Oh and Service. As stylists we can so easily get caught up in being busy staying busy slightly over booking that we forget what is really important. The client. The service. The consultation. The after care advice and so sales.

Over the years I have come to realize that all of the above points are key to success. They are also the main things we as stylist’s forget, take for granted, they are the things we need to stay on top of, make part of our daily routine when working with our clients.

Challenging our selves to make changes into how we work, how we interact with our clients is not as an easy thing to take a long hard look in the mirror and being honest about what needs maybe a little help some adjustment.

Equally as important to considering self development is the training and skill up date of those around us. model night mentoring sharing a collaborative approach to skill and knowledge sharing.Something so daly lacking in many salon and businesses.

 

Inspiring of young people coming into our industry is also key offering honest and sound  career advice on what to expect from working in a slain being part of team. What to expect from training and what the future might hold with regard to employe my wages and success. Offer advice about college training apprenticeships or one that encompasses both.My view is that a collaborative approach works best for all and delivers the best training experience to any trainee and aspiring stylists.

Do you need some help and advice on moving your salon and team forward with any of these or other  salon issues? Here are the links  we have the answers to all your questions.

”Reputation. Recommendation. Retention”. 
It’s not built on that constant looking for new clients it’s looking after what you have! It’s investing in your self and your business and those around you.

Are you driver or passenger !

 There are no guarantees in life and ones career and career choice is no different thing happen and its how we deal with them that defines us. Jobs change relationships come and go the one thing that remains after training is our skill both hands on creative and the ones we learn about people and communication about caring about being a team player. Constantly developing new skills staying current is so very important.

I also think that we need to always look at the WhyAsk the question Why are we in business whats it for? OrWhy do we want to go into to business what is success? Why do I suggest this I think by asking and exploring the why we get to the motive behind why we want to be in business what is true success. Why the will also help us to understand our true values this in turn helps us to follow the path to the success we want  and desire. It will help us to surround ourselves with the right team those who share our values and vision.
