The Anatomy of [Rockin’] Hairstylists

The secret of thriving, self-employed hairstylists? They’re great self-managers.

They understand simple habits and tools can put much of their daily operations and decision-making on autopilot, so they can grow their business without losing their mind – or their customers.

On that note, they’re also great managers of public perception.

In the eyes of your clients, perception equals reality, and successful hairstylists know there’s much they can (and should) do to manage client perceptions about their accessibility, mastery level, and professionalism.

Beyond great self and perception management, thriving hairstylists also leverage the freedoms that come with self-employment: particularly, the freedom to set healthy boundaries, to make up the rules as you go, change your mind, refine and adapt as you wish. (It’s your business, after all.)

Below is a snapshot of common habits and traits of on-fleek hairstylists.

Does it fit your personal and work styles? What would you add to this list? Be sure to share below!

Above all, remember: It’s your business. Your style. Your rules. Own it.
