The concept of traditional education has changed radically within the last couple of years and 2020 solidified this. Being physically present in a classroom or salon setting is not the only learning option for stylists anymore!
If change was easy, I would wake up an hour earlier every morning and go to the gym. I want to be that person, but alas, like so many others, I am a creature of habit. The problem is—what if you are a creature of BAD habits? For hairstylists, bad habits can sabotage your business and your career.
What comes to mind when you hear the word “education”? Do you reminisce about a cutting program, countless hours spent in cosmetology school, or the industry magazine you received in the mail? Last week, we wrote about educating your clients. This week, we're talking about educating yourself!
Whenever I show a client how to get more body or work against their cowlicks, they always say “No one has ever told me that!” Part of being a true expert is educating our clients. If they leave the salon without knowing how to style their hair, our job is not done!
