Beauty Industry Educational Reform: The Time Is Now

If we are to raise the standard of living for hairdressers, and improve salon profits for salon owners and everyone involved with the beauty profession, then we as salon owners must raise the standard of educational excellence. We must unite and address  the many challenges  salon owners face daily if we are to grow our business, improve profits, and help our hairdresser’s raise their standard of living.

“The job of an educator is to teach students
to see vitality in themselves.”  —
Joseph Campbell

As a salon owner and working hairdresser, you represent the heart and soul of the beauty profession.  Your personal, professional and financial success will bring success to everyone involved with the beauty profession.  For too long, far too  many salon owners have been facing the daily challenges of salon ownership in isolation, spending 10-12 long hours per day working behind the chair and sacrificing their personal life & time with family to keep their business growing and profitable.

Isn’t it time for educational reform and a new beginning?  I see a growing need for more quality education in the following areas:

  • Personal Growth and Development
  • Employee Mentoring
  • Financial Planning and Money Management
  • Improved People and Communication skills
  • Staff Retention Development
  • Self Management Guidelines
  • Client Retention
  • Better Work Habits
  • Business Management Skills for Salon Owners
  • Professionalism
  • How to Combat Staff Pirating and Turnover
  • Salesmanship
  • A  Better Partnership Between Beauty Schools and Employers

The above areas of concern must be addressed if the beauty industry and salon owners are to move forward. As  a survivor of the school of hard knocks, and as a concerned hairdresser/ salon owner who for 41 years fought to overcome many of the above obstacles, I formed Hairdresser Career Development Systems free of any special interest groups to fill this educational void, to help committed hairdressers and salon owners take control of their own destiny and make their journey easier than mine.

I am committed to helping hairdressers, salon owners and everyone involved in the beauty profession raise their standard of living and improve the quality of their lives for themselves and their families.

It truly is time for educational reform and a new beginning for beauty professionals! I would love to hear how you feel about this important topic.  Please leave comments below…

    What an excellent point Jon! I agree that education is the key to improvement in our industry, which is the reason I also started a blog to help out with that. So many of these creative beauty minds have zero business sense and no clue about the direct correlation between education and success. Kudos to you!
