In this Brand New Weekly Hair Education Video Series created exclusively for BMSCON5 Attendees, Danielle and Ani will be taking you on a journey to BMSCON5 (OCT 12-14th, 2020 in Dana Point, CA)!
With a combined almost 30 years of experience behind the chair, they will be taking you through important principles of hair artistry relevant to being both in front of the chair (aka the Business, Marketing and Sales) and also behind it (aka the magic and the art, evolving your skills & technique, and continually curating a more premium experience for your client from beginning to end).
EPISODE 3: Establishing Bulletproof Routines
Whether it’s waking up at the same time each morning and walking your dog, making time for a ten-minute meditation before you head into an important meeting, or getting in that 20-minute run by the beach before sunrise – we all have our grounding practices that help set up our day for success. But in times of high stress and high emotions, having a routine that inspires a sense of calm confidence becomes crucial.
This week’s episode is all about establishing a routine that’s non-negotiable, but also sustainable. One that will help you show up in a healthier and more positive way, both for yourself and others.
Point #1: Body
- If you don’t take care of your body, you won’t be able to take of your clients. Part of showing up for others includes showing up for yourself. Prioritizing self-care is equally as important as prioritizing the work that you do.
- If you’re a hairstylist, then you’ve probably gotten away with surviving 12-hour days on a cup of coffee and a small snack. But part of self-care means taking time to actually eat some wholesome, nutritious food that will keep you sustained and on-point both behind and in front of the chair.
Ask Yourself: What is something you can do today take better care of your physical wellbeing?
Point #2: Being
- Taking time to calm the mind can bring a welcomed reset no matter where you are or what time of day it is.
- Finding a mentally grounding practice helps you create space to recenter yourself so that you become refreshed and refocused. This can not only make a huge difference in the quality of work you produce, but it can also influence how you show up for others as well.
- Find what works for you to help you clear your mind and give your brain a rest.
Ask Yourself: What are you doing to get yourself in the right headspace for the day?
Point #3: Balance
- Having a family and sustaining a business can be a tricky thing. That’s why it’s important to strike a balance for a healthy equilibrium.
- Even if it means setting your phone down for two hours once a day to spend time with your siblings, children, or spouse, taking time to show up displays to them that you can be just as present in your business as you can be with them.
- Learning how create equal space for both parts of your life inevitably sparks trust in your co-workers, clientele, and your family/partner and shows them that you care about the long-term health and wellbeing of the relationship.
Ask Yourself: What’s one simple thing you can do today to invest and deposit into your family’s life to show that you love and appreciate them?
Point #4: Business
- Taking time to read a book, listen to a podcast, or have an interesting dialogue with a colleague about a new way to market or advertise – aim to learn something new, keep things fresh, and then talk about it out in the open. Your best business idea is only one conversation away.
- Allow your mind to take on new ideas that help you think about problems and solutions in a completely different way.
- For business/salon owners, if you’re not already – start weekly check-ins with your staff members to show that you’re invested in them as well as committed to making sure business continues to operate as usual no matter what.
Answer in your journal: Within the quadrants of Body, Being, Balance & Business, what simple things can you do today to better show up for yourself, your family, your staff members, and your clientele?
