Mission 29 Styling Lesson
Today and everyday from here on out, make sure that the client leaves with a styling lesson. As a salon owner, the two most common complaints I heard about styling are, first, that the client liked the haircut but wasn’t happy with the style. Second, if they did like the style they could not duplicate it at home. Finishing the haircut is not the finale; you still have more to do. Ultra successful stylists are great at styling hair. During the last 20% of the blow-dry, hand them the brush and dryer and coach them to perfection. Explain how the products were applied, how much was needed, which brush is needed for the desired results, how dry their hair should be before using a brush, and how to use the finishing products once their hair is dry. Teach, educate, and coach them so they can do it without you. That’s the goal.
If they don’t look good, you don’t look good.
