Over the new year driving back from Scotland we decided to split our journey and stop over at a B+B. The place was immaculate very well decorated everything one would look for in a B+B that is until meeting the people running it. It was so apparent that they were not happy or comfortable in the service industry. Boring sterile none creative a real put off. They really did not like people or serving them it was a effort Don’t be like this!
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.
So 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!

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.

Are you Interested. I would very much like an opportunity to work with individuals small groups or salon’s. In so many cases stylist fail salon’s fail through fear of asking for help and guidance don’t let this be you. mentoring is sharing of experience and knowledge brain storming of idea’s.
Fear and Ego are not your friend fear is only a fear until faced then it falls away lifted and can move forward face new challenges.
The real keys to your success are you the choices you make .
Service .Consultation .Communication. skill .Knowledge. Education up dates staying current.
