” Some of the best lessons we learn,will be learned from our mistakes and failures.”
Building a successful hairdressing career will require patience, perseverance, ongoing education and a fierce determination to succeed.
With over 40 years’ experience I certainly understand the many challenges of building a successful hairdressing career; I also know the rewards of success.
The following educational tips will help you overcome the many peaks and valleys to your growth and development, as you climb the ladder of success.
I urge you to follow these tips with an open mind:
Don’t Follow The Crowd — of glitter and hype. There are other skills you must develop such as people and communication skills, self-management, how to promote yourself through social media, to name a few. Focus your skills on understanding and exceeding client expectations
Keep An Open Mind — learn from people who are successful, they probably have experienced and overcome the same challenges as you
Be Patient – especially if you’re just starting your career. Building a hairdressing career is a journey, not a sprint. Develop a solid learning foundation for your long term growth and development.
Seek Out a Mentor — find someone you respect and ask for help. Check out my Hairdresser’s Guide to Excellence C.D. Click here.
Seek Out quality Education — make sure education is not a sales pitch for products. Find quality education that focuses on your educational needs.
Develop Personal Power Within – bring out your competitive spirit and believe in yourself always.
Take Personal Responsibility — for your own success or failure. Eliminate your excuses to fail. You can’t always blame your boss if you’re not busy.
Develop Powerful People and Communication Skills — developing powerful public speaking skills will open up fantastic opportunities for your growth and development.
Stay Focused — achieving success will be difficult because you will have to overcome many distractions for your time.
