#2 First class service
They both get their travelers to their destination - they get the job done. But people are paying waaaay more to fly first class and feel like royals during their flight.
If you’d like to pursue a reputable career, that should be your task - make your clients feel like royals, treat them the best way possible.
Here are some factors that can help you improve your customer service:
From the moment when they book a treatment, to the moment they leave your salon, you should make their journey convenient. Make sure they feel like they are your priority, and they don’t need any hustle to book or come to your treatment.
Time at the beauty salon is time to relax and unwind, so make sure your clients are feeling as comfortable as possible.
Often overlooked, going to beauty salons, and booking well-known beauty artists is a status symbol for clients, so don’t forget to help them brag about visiting your salon. You can achieve this by setting up a “selfie-corner” for example.
#3 Take photos everyday
We can’t emphasize this enough - take photos of your work, your salon, yourself, and so on.
And share it.
They will be your social proof and it is what will help you to build your brand.
Beauty artists often work under time constraints and this activity often falls into the last place. And you end up taking a photo or two per month.
Once you make yourself a habit to share your work and lifestyle you offer regularly, you’ll see progress in no time.
1% better every day = 365% better at the end of the year
To conclude, if you commit yourself to these tiny habits, and adjust your mindset to them, we’re 100% positive that by the end of the year, you’ll be able to see a significant difference in your career success.
