That next opportunity

Welcome to BACK2MYROOTS B2MR regular postings of fresh new topic’s

sharing techniques
sharing techniques


A little self indulgent but as i write these blogs, post articles, I pause take time to reflect on what next, where does the next challenge lie, what direction will my career take me in. will any more doors open, what opportunities will arise. I trust that if one puts out positive thought, supported with positive action only good can come from it.

What do i miss, what would i like to do, a hard one to answer to my self, my career to date has afforded me so many opportunities, these just seem to appear, come out of left field, so i have to trust an opportunity will come out of all this net working and Blogging.

My passions being, working with others, to share the experience i have gained over the years, this could be Platform leading to work in conjunction with an artistic team, education, or just working with individual salons, hairdressers, to improve skill and knowledge. I really think that the keys to success are different depending on the situation.


If in a salon.

Relationships between owner, management, staff team, Image Service, Consultation , sales skills, product knowledge, sharing a vision.


For the individual stylist.

Education, knowledge, technical skills, goals, motivation ,inspiration, creative, communication skill. consultation skills.


Opportunities career direction,

Colour technician, Educator for colour company, Platform artist, Artistic team member.



Competition work, photo shoots, in house model nights training,product knowledge,


All these above are aspects of our industry, the things that all salons at some point need to look at address stay current with.

With so many distributors offering products on line, having face book pages, being interactive with clients, those being us the salon owners, the stylist.  The support required is both practical, technical, it’s help and advise, access to demonstrations, education events, knowledge sharing.

The perfect situation would be to work with a distributor, to share knowledge ,experience, whilst promoting products through education, service, consultation skills,

This i did very successfully both whilst working with a major distributor, and as being platform artist  artistic team member, doing education for a major colour company. It is my belief that education and sales go hand in hand sales funds education, education stimulates sales through knowledge.


At this point, i also feel that having a full understanding, of all the different products sold over the counter,what they do, how they work, is essential,

We have to be able to explain, give reason to clients, as to why the service we offer and perform are worth while, that we are the experts who understand the chemistry of hair, also understands the down side, and indeed pitfalls of using these unprofessional store purchased products, be they colour or home hair relaxer’s.

From a clients point view, they only know what the adverts and media portray, they don’t know, or have the product knowledge, to understand what might happen, what the ramifications could be from misuse, that’s out job, the professional, to advise, recommend, inform, this is not selling this is doing our job the consultation fully, being professional.

So back to me, my next path, my direction, Education, consultation, sharing, promoting, net working. This is the way forward for the new year, using all the experience i gained, along with my belief in raising both the bar, and indeed awareness of issue relating to our profession, working with and helping others to grow, to be as successful as they want to be for it is in every ones hands to make changes to grow and succeed.

    Hey – good blog, just trying round some blogs, seems a reasonably nice platform You Are using. I’m at present using Drupal for a few of my sites however trying to change considered one of them over to a platform very much the same to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you’d advocate about it?
