Runs Business with Scissors

Consulting News Hello super busy stylists and salon owners, It is time, actually past time to pause and review how you and your business are doing and to set a goal or two for 2020. Whenever I do this I am reminded that I run my business, my business does not run me. It takes discipline to do this exercise because when your day behind-the-chair is at capacity and your personal life is ticking along nicely why would you change anything at all? Or conversely your day behind-the-chair is not at capacity and your personal life is a mess how on earth can you find time to change anything at all? Here are a few reasons why: 1.      You want to make more money. 2.      You want to work smarter not harder. 3.      You want to remember why you love to do hair. 4.      You want more time with your family and friends. 5.      You want to improve your skills. 6.      You want to travel more. 7.      You want to unders

Fall is in the air, summer is over and we are starting to think about the holi-daze!    Fall and winter are often a time we think about growing our hair a little longer and going a shade or two darker as we begin to dress more warmly for the shorter days and the longer nights. Earlier this summer this lovely client went from a long hairstyle - to a medium, layered bob. Her hair was too long and heavy for the hot summer days.   In her case she has decided to keep this length and enjoy this style for a while longer. How about you?  Longer hair or shorter hair for the Fall and Winter Seasons? Let's talk next time you come in for your appointment! If you do not have an appointment and you are ready to book, please see my contact information below. Email: Call/Text: 510-545-2955 Book online:

What a whirlwind this past year has been! I completely fell off writing my newsletters and Bloggs which is one of the ways I stay connected to you “beyond the chair." Between travel and becoming a grandmother, I have been a bit distracted and have broken my own rules of staying on top of “working on my business, as well as in my business”. Lucky for me I have the best clients in the world and my 35 years as a hairstylist have stood me in good stead in this social media frenzied world we live in today. Yes, 35 years! Wow I can hardly believe it! So I have truly taken stock and decided to make a decision which is momentous for me. As of January 2020 I will not longer have appointments available on Saturdays. I have been able to tell most of you in person which is my preferred way to communicate whenever possible and I truly appreciate your support and understanding. I will be in the salon weekdays except every other Thursday when I will be in my new role as Glamm

Dear Wonderful Salon Clients, Without you where would a hairstylist be?   We would be No Nothing- sorry I could not resist! This is the name of my newest professional product that I am carrying in my business at Swans Studios. No Nothing is a no scent, no fragrance, no perfume line from Finland.   Here is both a link and some information from the manufacturer: NO NOTHING – HAIR PRODUCTS THAT IRRITATE NO-ONE Surprisingly many of us have sensitive skin or have experienced allergic reactions to cosmetic products. With the right kind of products, allergies and irritations can be controlled or avoided. To supply high quality products for this need, KC Professional has developed a sensitive range of hair products for styling as well as cleansing and conditioning hair and scalp.
