6 Tips To Stay Motivated In The Hair Salon

When we get carried away by the day to day, we can lose motivation, a complex and difficult word to maintain but very important in our lives. As important as the steps we take on the journey and the choice of the professional path.

Tips to stay motivated in the hairdressing salon

You will have been advised on different occasions to look for motivation in yourself, and it is true, but we cannot wait for it to appear as if by magic if we do not change our routines. Therefore, we tell you some tricks that will awaken a smile with every move you make.

  • Remember the reasons that led you to choose this enriching and creative profession.
  • Research, study, and share with your colleague’s new techniques for cutting, coloring, and hairstyle.
  • Put into practice those new ideas that make you insecure.
  • Recover those tools and products that today you consider old and discover new possibilities.
  • Maintain constant training to continue evolving, as does the hairdressing sector and market needs.
  • Observe your environment and absorb all the details that are sources of inspiration; you will observe how creativity arises.

Training in cutting and color techniques as a source of motivation

Undoubtedly, insecurity is something that directly affects motivation. It is not about apathy or reluctance but fear. Sometimes we limit our work techniques or the proposals we make to clients to what we know how to do almost with our eyes closed, translating into a dissatisfied client and a demotivated hairdresser. That is why we must maintain constant training in cutting techniques, color, collected, and be the day in new tools and products. Use all the training resources that are available to you, such as face-to-face courses and online training.

Business and marketing training in the beauty sector as a source of motivation

We cannot ignore that competition is increasing, and we must bet on differentiating ourselves. Technical specialization adds value and quality to our services, but we can go further. If you want to be up to date and be a hairdresser 2.0, you have to expand your knowledge in areas that you never thought would be related to the artist within you. Business and marketing training will help you grow and anticipate all kinds of situations, managing your business better, and increasing productivity.

Find inspiration in your travels

Traveling is not only rest or a period of disconnection from your obligations; if your mind is open and your subconscious willing to observe, but you will also see how a trip can become a cocktail of stimuli and sensations that, without realizing it, are transformed into new ideas, shapes, textures, and colors. Travel, observe, learn, enjoy the environment, cultures, architecture … You will see how a trip is synonymous with training. The result is a new color technique, different behavior in customer service, or a way other than using the tools. 

Exfoliating Peeling And Rejuvenating Skin

Let’s talk about our cream of the month, its properties, and how it should fit into your beauty routine.

In this season, the skin is dull and dry due to temperature changes, heat in the office or school, and low temperatures outside, so we should undergo thorough skincare both in the morning and just before going to sleep.

However, changes in temperature are not the only cause of the lack of shine of our skin; adding blush and foundation does not help us. These causes obstruct the pores, and their presence is important for the transpiration of the skin and to give the epidermis a hydrated and soft appearance.

The skin is made up of two types of pores: the first are pores that have the function of letting out the oils from the skin, and others, on the other hand, are used to let sweat escape. The former are actually hair follicles, each of which contains a sebaceous gland capable of producing sebum.

Instead, the sweat glands (the second type of pores) are very small, and, visually, they do not give problems. Those that tend to become clogged and larger are precisely the first, annoying to see, and give us a not always shiny appearance.

After a little explanation on how our skin is formed, we analyze the properties and beneficial effects of our exfoliating white algae peeling.

It is important to specify that our range of products is not tested on animals and is free of chemical ingredients; all natural components are dermatologically tested, we choose to tell you about one of our favorite range products.

The properties that this natural element brings to us:

Purifying.

Essential trace elements and mineral salts stimulate and rebalance the proper  functioning of skin cells.

 Increase in collagen production.

 Eliminate dead cells.

 Moisturizes and prepares the skin for the next cosmetic treatment.

Our advice is to exfoliate your skin once a week, eliminating all impurities accumulated throughout the week. Apply the cream to the dry area with circular movements and change the direction of movement and rinse with warm water. It can also be used with a regular cleanser suitable for your skin in order to have an even deeper and safer cleansing. After application, the skin will be clean and very fresh.  Some people use additional treatments for their skin, and your local dermatologist can help you decide if botox is right for you.

Our cream of the month exfoliating peeling with white algae will become an excellent ally; it will help you eliminate all impurities that are difficult to treat with normal creams. Opening the pores and letting them breathe is important to prevent your skin from drying out continuously; even the skin color once applied will change; it will be shinier and invigorated.

Change Of Season: Protect Your Skin From The Cold

We explain why in winter, the skin appears drier and duller than usual and how we can fix it.

In hot periods, our skin remains much more hydrated than in cold periods; it is completely normal if, in the middle of winter, leaving the shower, we notice the legs already dry and grayish in color.

It scares many, but, in reality, it is a completely normal phenomenon mainly attributable to two elements: summer and cold. But for each of the two causes, the solution is different.

The Summer

The sunny season leaves us with wonderful memories and, alas, not always positive footprints: prolonged exposure to UV rays damages our skin and favors the appearance of wrinkles and cracked skin.

The first step to take with the arrival of autumn and then the cold is undoubtedly to deeply hydrate the skin, restoring its natural structure. A deep moisturizing cream with Azulene provides hydration throughout the day by restoring the hydro-lipid balance.

Apply morning and evening to perfectly cleansed skin with large and light movements. The cream absorbs immediately without any greasy effect on the skin.

The Cold

Scientifically, with the arrival of cold, the skin tends to dry out because our body, to protect itself from low temperatures, concentrates the blood flow towards the internal organs at the expense of the skin.

The consequence of all this? Less collagen is produced, and the skin thins and dries a lot. The part of the body that suffers the most from the drop in temperatures is undoubtedly the face because it is the area most exposed to the outside temperature, heat, and smog.

But we can keep the same hydration of the hot periods if we worry about hydrating ourselves more, both inside and outside.

  • Our body loses 2L of water every day, so we should take at least this amount to recover it.
  • A perfect balanced combination of different oils rich in vitamins, nourishment for the skin. The face nourishing complex with integral oils is used in the evening, after thorough cleansing. Apply in small quantities to damp face and neck, insisting on the areas to be treated and avoiding the eye area. Remove the excess by applying a paper tissue to the face.

Overall, Good hydration is essential to keep our skin nourished and shiny.
