Tis The Season To Prep For The Holidays

As a salon owner, one thing you can count on is that time flies. Although it probably seems as though you have barely put away your summer hair tools and taken a sip of your pumpkin latte, it is time to start thinking of the holiday season in your busy salon. This time of year can truly make or break your business, so you definitely want to bring your A-game when it comes to preparations. And do not worry because you are definitely not alone. FHI Heat will help you deck the halls every step of the way! Tune in to these helpful tips below to get ready for your best holiday season yet.

 

Stay Organized

With so many moving parts to your business, now is the time to make your master list. No, we don’t mean your naughty and nice list, but rather, you need a master list of all that needs to happen in the busy holiday season so you are set up for success. From decorating your business in a festive way, to scheduling your stylists, staying organized will be the key to your success. You also might want to hire some temporary help to get you through the rush, so your regular stylists are not burdened. You know your business best, and being ready for the holiday rush demands definite organization. 

 

Create a Festive Social Media Campaign

Odds are that since you are busy cutting hair and running a hectic salon, you do not always pay as much attention to your social media campaign as you should. During this holiday season, make plans to fix that. Whether you plan an email campaign, create a holiday game for your clients to learn about and play through social media, or send out pictures of beautiful holiday hairstyles, if you bump up the social media exposure, you can really make some holiday magic for your business. 

 

Don’t be a Grinch (more breaks and fun)

With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it is easy to get overwhelmed. Make it a point to take care of yourself and your stylists, and they, in turn, will put a holiday smile on the face of your clients. Now is the time for more breaks, not fewer. Play holiday music, offer cookies and hot chocolate, and create holiday giveaways or trivia contests that pump up the joy in your salon. Your clients want a place where they can escape from stress and worry, and your salon is just the place!

 

Put FHI Heat Tools on Your List

During the busy holiday season, you need to be using tools you can count on. Trust the FHI Heat name for tools that are as beautiful as they are helpful. One of our favorites is The Innovator Pro Power Speed Dryer, which is our most powerful hair dryer. Its ultralight design meshes with the Digital BLDC Motor to create a perfectly balanced, powerful airflow. Decrease your styling time while intensifying moisture to your hair. This is especially important during the holiday season when the air is dryer and you want to look your best!

If you want to show your customers how to style their hair like a professional, look no further than The Curve Pro Styling Dryer 1”. Its ergonomic design helps the plates glide easily through your customer’s hair, and they will be so impressed with the way it curls, smooths, or waves hair in half the time. With tourmaline ceramic plates infused with magnesium, The Curve will lock in moisture as it styles. 

 

Ease Your Customers’ Shopping Burden

If there is one thing you know about your customers, it is that they often wait until the last minute. Whether they are trying to fit an appointment in at the last second or whether they need to pick up a holiday gift for someone on their list, you can definitely help them out. With our FHI Heat Early Gift Sets, your clients can get ready for the holidays and also save 20% off the list price for these products!

One of our favorites for this season is the Retro and Curve Duo Set. This delightful set features The Curve Pro Styling Dryer 1”, which uses ergonomic technology and curved plates to create the perfect holiday wave your customers crave. Our Retro Pro Compact Dryer is a perfect complement, a lightweight dryer with a vintage aesthetic. With a powerful motor and six airflow speeds, the HydraHeat Technology will seal the cuticle and lock in moisture. 

Our Power Duo Set is another perfect gift this holiday season. This time we pair the Curve Pro Styling Dryer 1” with the powerful Platform 2000 Nano Power Pro Dryer. The HydraHeat technology offers even heat distribution to seal in moisture and repel humidity, and the AC motor dries hair up to 50% faster. The Black or Silver Chrome both look stylish and make great gifts. 

If you are shopping for someone on your list that likes to be on the cutting edge, our Platform White Styling Set is the perfect find. Our 1” Platform Exclusive White Flat Iron, our Platform 1900 Nano Lite Pro Hair Dryer in Chrome, and our Detangling Hair Brushwith a 1” Digital Pro Flat Iron is perfect for all hair types. Each of our Platform tools includes tourmaline-infused ceramic technology, which distributes heat evenly and leaves you room to create many glamorous hairstyles for your clients. These tools are also easy enough for them to use at home.

And if you try these tools out with your customers, they will often fall in love and want to purchase them through your Pro Commission. This is definitely a win-win. Your customers can have FHI Heat tools, and you don’t need to clutter up your salon during this busy season. 

Let this holiday season be your most peaceful and productive yet, by being ready with pragmatic plans and creative, clever ideas to deck the halls and brighten the moods of your clients this year.
