Big Money Stylist Podcast Episode #103: Deception vs Integrity

Encore Presentation from May 21, 2019

Whether it’s cars, boob jobs, or hair extensions, trust is HUGE when it comes to both consumers and professionals. Join Danielle & Ani as they have a spicy conversation on this hot topic in this week’s episode of the Big Money Stylist.


Point #1: Pretty Little Liars

  • No matter what you are purchasing, as a consumer, you put your trust in the professionals to provide what they say they will be providing.
  • There are artists playing the game of bait & switch, luring clients under the guise of providing NBR, yet providing anything but that.

Ask Yourself: What has been your experience with this, either as one who was baited or the one setting the bait?

Point #2: Oh, I Just Do Hair

  • Many artists come to BMS because they’re sick and tired of being looked at like a fucking joke, a common problem in the hair industry.
  • If you want to be taken seriously, though, you have to take yourself seriously. That comes through constant practice and proper education.

Ask Yourself: What can you do to improve the way you view yourself?

 Point #3: Tracking the Right Numbers

  • When it comes to marketing and social media, you might have a huge following, but what are your actual numbers when it comes to income?
  • Ani: I had less than 1500 followers and was making $20k per month. Anything can be done with proper marketing and advertising.

Ask Yourself: Are you running the same shit show and just gaining popularity without filling up your bank account?

Point #4: Stay In Integrity

  • Whatever service or product you’re offering, you must stay in integrity.
  • Danielle: Sadly, we’re at that point where people will say anything to get people in the door.

Ask Yourself: What are you doing & saying to get people in the door and in your chair?

Point #5: Consistency

  • Danielle & Ani hold the vision of the brand going international, and with that, the integrity of the brand must remain intact.
  • Because NBR is a very specific niche inside of the hair extension world, they are currently creating a manual with very specific verbiage and how-to’s for their trainers, thus assuring consistency within the brand internationally.

Ask Yourself: Where inside your world as an artist would consistency benefit you or your salon?

Quote of the Week:

“If you find yourself being triggered by a client or experience, ask yourself what part you played in feeling this way. What could you do to make sure this doesn’t happen again?”

—Danielle K White

“I’m going to have you consider that one crazy client every rare moment… you met a crazy client. But, if you feel like you have crazy clients all the time, you might be the crazy one!”
