Last weekend I went to get a haircut and color. The cut and color were phenomenal and I left the salon looking like a million bucks. Later on, I got to thinking and realized the stylist missed a huge opportunity. I had these wonderful beach waves that I always try to achieve, but she didn't tell me how to style it!
Retail is so important to your business. I get it, you don't want to be pushy. However, some of your clients may need the help and are too shy to ask. If you don't tell them what you are using and show them how they may never ask.
It was a very hot summer, and if you are like me, you were busy throwing your hair up, because what was the point of doing anything to it before walking outside? The season has changed, and the good hair weather is upon us! Your clients are coming in for a color and cut, and they are excited about the new look. It is up to you, as a stylist, to show them what to do with it!
It doesn't have to be anything major or fancy. Let's just talk the basics...
Are you asking about theirblow dryerat home?
I know that mine is old and damaging, and I desperately need an upgrade! Investing in a few extra for retail is necessary. (Hey, if they don't get sold, you always have back up!)
My pick: BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Mid-Size Titanium Dryer
Because not only is it cute, reasonably priced, and easy to use, but it gives great results!
Six heat and speed settings, a cool shot button and a concentrator nozzle provide a wide range of styling options! Plus the removable filter makes cleaning easy.
What about a high-quality brush?
My pick: Olivia Garden Healthy Hair HeatPro Thermal Round Brush / 2.125"
These HeatPro brushes feature copper ceramic technology which allows the barrel to heat up twice as fast and retain heat much longer.
Best used for small to medium curls, waves, and volume! They give that soft curl for normal to thick hair.
This is so important! Not all brushes are suitable for certain hair types, and as a customer, that is not something I always knew! Maybe your clients don't know what they need!
Leaving the salon with those beach waves is the best part of the haircut! They show off the hair color, and I always feel like some kind of celebrity. Do you know how many people struggle to style their hair at home? We need your help! Don't forget to find out what they use at home for a curling iron!
My pick: Pink Titanium 3/4" Spring Curling Iron
Because it's pink! It also is great for smaller sections of hair, that give that natural beach look, that I love!
- Titanium Surface For Maximum Heat Distribution And Snag-Free Styling
- Extra Long Cool Tip
- Powerful Spring Clamp
- Extra Long Thumb Grip
- Provides Maximum Heat Curl After Curl
Don't be shy, stylists. Your clients come to you because they respect your opinion and what you do! We need your help! Invest in some retail options this season!
