Tips For A Prosperous New Year

As far as New Year’s resolutions go, a stylist’s list tends to deviate from the norm. This is because the work of stylists is so deeply embedded in their daily lives. While some folks might focus on quitting smoking or exercising more, a stylist’s resolutions are often more industry-specific.

Here are the 10 New Year’s resolutions that every stylist should keep for 2021.

1. Connect with your clientele

A loyal clientele is the bread and butter of any stylist’s business. Make your clients feel special by reaching out to check in on them and offering them special promotions. For example, you can connect with your most loyal clients and give them 15% off their next cut or blowout!

2. Grow your social media

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that our online presence is vital to a modern growing business. Use your social media platforms to your advantage by posting valuable content, such as how-to hair tutorials or gift card giveaways, to gain traction and increase your following.

3. Take care of your hands

As stylists, your hands are sacred. After shampooing, mixing chemicals, and wearing gloves, our hands could use some extra TLC in 2021. Make sure you are using a rich hand moisturizer and keeping your nails tidy.

4. Take care of your mind

2020 has been difficult on stylists. There’s no doubt about that. The pandemic stress, coupled with the fear of salon safety, has brought plenty to their breaking point. Being a stylist already comes with a unique set of stressors. To combat this, make sure you are taking care of your mind. This might mean implementing a self-care routine or meditating to start the day.

5. Invest in new tools

As a stylist, it’s your job to have the most precise and technologically-advanced tools on the market, but it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. From steel shears to dryers and hair care products, FHI Heat has you covered with affordable, professional-grade tools.

6. Learn new techniques

In a creative field such as cutting hair, the techniques are ever-evolving. Even if you are a master in your craft, there will always be something new for you to learn. Spend some time online researching recent trends and styles within the industry. This knowledge will give you your edge as a stylist!

7. Research industry events

In-person events have been infrequent in light of the pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped industry professionals from creating them online. Industry events will help you network, learn about the industry, and establish a sense of community. Hopefully, in 2021, there will be more in-person events to attend.

8. Reach out to other stylists

Try to think of other stylists as your peers, not your competition. Connecting with people who understand what you are going through is beneficial to your mental health. It also might inspire business partners. There’s much to be gained through a collaboration between talented stylists.

9. Organize your books

Oftentimes, organization isn’t the biggest strength that a creative has; however, it’s necessary for running a business. If your books aren’t tidy, take some time to organize them. Use an Excel spreadsheet to get your 2021 business expenses in order.

10. Get 8 hours of sleep

As a working stylist, you spend a lot of time on your feet. Plus, it’s crucial to remain alert and attentive when working as an artist in a creative field. One of the healthiest things you can do for your body and mind is to get eight hours of sleep each night.

From the team here at FHI Heat, we wish you a healthy and happy new year! Adopt some of these easy resolutions to ensure a spectacular and prosperous 2021.
