Coming Soon: Stylist and Client #MindfullnessKits

In the nearly 2 decades I’ve spent in the greater Cosmetology industry I’ve held a lot of different positions, each with varying types of stresses associated with them.

I’ve recently been going through several self imposed changes in my life and career and I’m choosing to share with others some of the best things I’ve found for me.

Keep a look out for my SquareSpace store relaunching soon. In addition to some hair extension kits, I’ve also created stylist and client #MindfullnessKits.

These #MindfullnessKits will include some of the organizational activities that have helped me, along with some great beauty products for living life minimally, lists of coping mechanisms for busy people, and even festival hair accessories to help bring forth your inner dirty hippie.

I look forward to being able to help share some inner calm with my fellow busy stylists, and our clients.

Combating Apathy and Ignorance

I went back and forth a lot about the content of this post before deciding I really do need to say this:

Hairstylists, we have more power than we know.
Traditionally we have been told that money, politics, and religion are off limit topics and we should just quietly nod agreement and change the subject with our clients.  This is wrong.
Our clients ask for our feedback and advice on everything from restaurants and vacation spots to relationships and raising their children, and right now some may need our guiding touch on some rather serious issues. I’m not advocating starting fights with clients, I’m just advocating to not support their ignorance.
So, this is for my client who is voting for Trump because they want to build a wall but she’s worried about how to keep her own illegal house cleaner. This is for the woman who is legitimately upset by #BlackLivesMatter because she thinks it should be #AllLivesMatter. This is for my clients who think Flint has clean water again. This is for everyone upset by the deaths of Dallas cops who didn’t bat an eye for Philandro or the Orlando gay club massacre.
NO, I will not nod my head along with you in agreement when I do not agree.
Clients trust their hair stylist with more than just their hair. Dig a little deeper if your client brings up a current event topic without understanding their privilege.
