The right professional products for both the salon the stylists and indeed the client are an essential part of this. A style journey.



Over the years its great to see the changes that we can create and make happen for our clients, that is the reason for the posting to often as stylist we try to make change happen to quickly the process here was a make over after back surgery and then working with the style and colour as its grown out again.


Most recently a switch from highlights to all over colour. As one model the continued requests I get from recommendation proves that these long term salon relationship are a far better investment than the salon that focuses on continued new walk in business .Client retention and recommendation is essential for salon and stylist success. Part of this process is recommending of the right home maintenance products for the client to maintain colour style condition.

The ‘Three R’s’ 
”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.

We as salon owners and stylist must never forget that the client is what make sour business successful its pays our bills and wages.


Its the service we deliver, the creative skills we have the passion and drive to find and suffer solution, its essential that we have excellent communication skills deliver a full consultation. Equally using and recommending professional products. part of this is being trained in their use and knowledgeable about salon retail products to recommend for home maintenance and styling.
