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.
