Newly qualified hair stylists what’s next for you as you enter in the world of the hair salon the salon and spa will you find that success,those creative rewards, those financial rewards. What will it take to succeed? Hard work commitment. A willingness to carry on learning.

I write this to point our that we choose our profession but much more we have to love it for it plays and takes up such a huge part of our lives. Trust me when i say if you are just doing hairdressing because it’s a job it will reflect in your attitude and the standard of the work you produce.Ultimately your lack of success. Always be true and honest about wants and expectations!

Time for Action:

Now you have completed your training been through college or an academy done an apprenticeship. Maybe you are in your early years of working in a salon starting to get experience in being part of a team working with the public getting an understanding of the service industry. What does and can the future hold for you?

Most importantly learning about people and understanding giving honest advise. How to listen to them learn the art of consultation. communication. That realisation that you we are the product! How we dress, What we project, our image all the part of the package that says this is me i’m here ready to help and advise! What can i do for you.

Face up to challenges embrace them think of the salon as a stage your a key player maybe the star attraction though I would rather be a key player!!! You have trained for this new chosen profession worked hard don’t get disillusioned in those early days of understanding the dynamic’s of. How a salon runs and works. Why do so many new young stylist leave become disillusioned or stay with it but with resentment and anger. Because of high expectation in those early years as a junior stylists, when trying to be excepted and get established in a salon.

What next is the world really your Oyster ? Can you really make it big can all your dreams come true happiness wealth success? or what ever else you dream of attaining! what is the key. Is it possible? I think with hard work commitment and realistic vision everything is possible. Hard work this involves continued updating of skills and technical ability. Staying focused and motivated. Being a team player. maybe working with a mentor or  stylist you look up to.

Raise that hand ask that question seek out the answers you need Offer that hand as support be a team player. Extend that hand it say’s follow me you can trust me! The one and only answer is you and you alone can either put in the work be honest with your self about your ability your passion. What you are prepared to do to succeed possibly excel above others to have that edge. You can either blame others for. Poor training blame your self for not pay attention or be really honest with your self and enter into a program of self discovery and skill improvement.

A journey to improve your hands on skills lean how to understand what true service is. Are you ready to put ego aside invest in your self and your future. Become fully booked successful and enjoy your career get the rewards that hard work commitment attention to detail can afford you. The biggest change of career for young stylist comes in the first three years after training graduation this is a sad waste of talent skill training time and money. Be positive and up beat face and embrace challenges don’t let your career go down the toilet! Mater the art of communication deliver the best Consultation aspire to be the very best that you can reflect on your vision work towards it.

It does not have to be this way with professional help and guidance you can succeed establish your self as a highly qualified expert in the hairdressing industry. As a stylist maybe you are struggling, making a living but bored, uninspired feel like each day is just a repeat of the previous one. If this is you then you need help need to have a inspiration goals target a formulation to turn things around and succeed.

I also think that we need to always look at the Why. Ask 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.

 

Remember. Salon success. Stylist success. Business success are all linked together it’s Team success. Its never about any destination only ever about a journey taking the right people on that journey makes it enjoyable maybe even fun!
