Congratulations and welcome to what can be an exciting, fun, worthwhile and potentially well-paid career.
For some it doesn't always become a great career so here are 5 bits of advice to help you on your way…..
Are you achieving your goals? If you are like most people the answer will be “some of them yes!” and some of them “no”.
There are two types of goals, outcome goals and process goals. Achieving your outcome or results goal is dependent on achieving your process goal.
The process is the most important as if you focus on this, you'll get the results!
“Focus on the process and the results will take care of themselves.”
The easy option is to keep doing what you're doing just because that's what you've always done….but maybe this isn't working anymore.
Ask yourself the question “is it still working” then give yourself an honest answer. Once you have acknowledged that it isn't working anymore and something needs to change, then you are already moving forward.
Next, it's about working out some alternative ways of achieving the outcome and becoming unstuck….. Now keep going!
We all have people we admire for their ability to do something well but it's worth remembering that there was always a point in time when they were only as good as you are now. What sets them apart is that they made a decision to master that skill and committed to making it happen.
That is what you have to do….. just start! And just by starting you are way ahead of most people who lack the courage to even try!
Having the ability to make someone feel like they are the only one in the room is a very important skill to develop as hairdressers. We want our clients to feel important, that we don't take them for granted and that we are 100% focused on them.
How good does it make you feel when someone blows you away with their friendliness and service?
Check out these top tips that will help you ensure that every client who walks in your door feels important and that you are completely focused on them.
Most people want more but if you ask them what they are doing to learn how to get more, most people are doing very little, if anything at all.
What are you doing to get a different outcome? Most people spend more time planning for their summer holiday than their life but if you want something different to happen it's all down to YOU! YOU are your greatest asset so it's important to spend time planning what you need to do and developing yourself so you get more as a result. Here are some practical tips on how to get started.
The secret to long term success is client retention. If we worked as hard at keeping the clients we have, as we do at attracting new clients, then perhaps we wouldn't need as many new clients? Keeping existing clients really is the secret to long-term success!
Here are 5 steps to help you ensure you keep your clients as long as possible!
You don't get to be a fully booked and well-rewarded hairdresser just by doing great work. For that to happen you need to be doing the most work and that means pre-booking people for their next appointment before they walk out of the door.
Pre-booking your clients is an easy thing to do when you know how…..
What's your average bill and why is it even important?
Your average bill is an important number to understand because the higher it is the fewer clients you need to see in order to generate the same amount in revenue.
A high average bill is a reflection of how successful you are as a ‘well-rounded hairdresser'.
Business can be a lot like sport. When it boils down to it, one team wins because they are doing lots of little things better than the other team… and it's the same in business.
What are the little things that set you apart and will make you a winner?
