I’m kind of scared to say this, because I know it’s something that makes a lot of Salon Owner’s eyes roll… That’s right, today we’re talking about home hair colour. And I know you might be thinking, “But Larissa, you used to be a hairdresser, why are you talking about home hair colour!?” OK, let me explain… The stigma around home hair colour is something that’s circulated our industry for years… like, I get it. Why do your hair at ...

There are a few questions that I often get asked in my work with Salon Owners… But without a doubt, one of the most common, and most stressed questions sounds like this: “My team member is leaving… and they’re opening a Salon down the road! HELP!” OMG… I get the pain, this is a seriously stressful situation. And there are actually quite a few problems like this that crop up for Salon Owners... like, i’m sure as you read this you c...

As a Salon Owner, do you often struggle to keep your wage bill down? I know this can be tricky for many business owners… there’s a constant tug of war between wanting to grow and hire new team members, but also wanting to avoid blowing the budget on wage costs! Did you know: you can employ people for free? If you can get team members income generating in your business FAST... they can cover their own wage and make themselves FRE...

Being a Salon Owner can feel scary at times! It can feel like there’s no one there to guide you when things are uncertain…. or even to celebrate you when things go right! Salon Owners are often afflicted with this feeling of loneliness or anxiety… we feel alone in business and like there’s no one around us who understands! That’s why I wanted to bring ultra-successful Salon Owner Kate Henderson on my Podcast today, so that we could...

I’ve been there. You’re juggling too many balls, wearing too many hats and the pot is starting to boil over… You get to the point where there’s so much going on in life that when even the smallest thing goes wrong - you lose it! I think every Salon Owner can relate to this. We are businesswomen… creative entrepreneurs, but we’re also mothers, daughters, wives, partners, hairdressers, marketers, cleaning ladies, taxi drivers, counci...

I’m sure Sustainability is something you’ve heard a lot about in recent years.  Whether you’re completely in support of this movement, or you aren’t fully ‘in the know’, one thing that’s undeniable is the rise of the sustainability cause and sustainable salons in our industry. But I know there’s one question that many Salon Owners ask themselves when they hear this: What’s the cost? I know it can feel scary to spend more on co...

When team members leave you, it can feel like you’ve been betrayed… Like… “How dare they?!”... right? I totally understand that feeling of rejection when one of your team leaves, especially when they move to another Salon down the road! We all want our staff members to be as invested in our Salon Business as we are… and we can easily forget that sometimes this just isn’t the reality.  Should we expect our team to be as invested ...

Did you know: it is possible for a Salon business to excel in the current climate?! I get it, this may sound crazy to some. Covid-19 has affected so many businesses in this industry in so many ways, most of which have been negative. But when I tell you that I know someone who has defied all odds with her story, I'm not exaggerating! Meet Haylee Benton. Haylee is a 3x Salon Owner and ‘serial entrepreneur’ who has a mass of achie...

I think the most accurate word to describe the past year in our industry has been: unpredictable. With the global pandemic rocking Hair & Beauty Salons across the globe, and most closing their doors at one point or another, it’s important to remember that we always need to be prepared for anything.  And a huge aspect of that, which I saw many Salon Owners struggle with in lockdown especially, was keeping their clients engaged. ...

Some Salon Owners that I see, are actually starting to think “I don't want to grow”.  Maybe there's an inability to find great staff and to fill empty chairs...and this is a real problem for growth.  Don’t get me wrong, there are some smart, savvy business owners whose businesses are growing rapidly. But there's still this fear around getting ‘too big’ and not being able to sustain growth.  And I think that fear and fru...

Are you addicted to being busy? When you’re deep in a pit of overwhelm, and it’s been that way for longer than you actually realise… Then it might be time to take a step back and truly ask yourself this question. I see so many Salon Owners with these HUGE to-do lists, with lots of people relying on them and who are really still stuck in the day to day operations of their business. And don’t get me wrong… i’ve been there! But what I...

Do you ever feel like it’s a struggle to handle team dynamics in your Salon? You’re trying to do ‘all the things’ and wear ‘all the hats’... and when leading a team gets thrown into the mix, it all starts to feel a little overwhelming… I totally get that! In this industry, we are constantly managing humans… whether that’s our clients, or our staff members. And when we’re trying to run a successful business on top of that, it’s impo...

Being a Salon Owner can be a rollercoaster of emotions. Especially when you feel like your Salon is your baby… it can be so easy to become super attached to everything in your business…. But sometimes, I think it’s important for Salon Owners to remember that they need to separate themselves from their business and make decisions based on data and facts, rather than emotions. I know that this can feel tricky and scary, and that it ...

So many people are scared of Money. And if that resonates, don’t worry- I totally get it. The topic of Money can feel like this overwhelming thing that looms over you 24/7… something inescapable that people try so desperately to ignore for as long as possible! I’m here to say - it’s time for Salon Owners to remove their heads from the sand when it comes to money! I see so many Salon Owners every day who are struggling when it come...

Throughout my 36+ years working in the hair and beauty industry, there is 1 challenge so large that it is still affecting Salon Owners to this day. Can you guess what it is? I’m sure you probably guessed it… It’s an issue so prominent and internationally widespread, and something I help Salon Owners with almost daily. That challenge is, finding staff. In this industry, if you really think about it, we actually sell time with hu...

I want to talk about how to rid yourself of toxic team members.  Especially as we enter a new year, we have this opportunity to turn the page and start a new chapter, write our own endings.  And sometimes we need to face up to some of the challenges that we have, that are stopping us from our growth and being the best that we possibly can.  I really want to talk about this problem, because as I started to look back throughout 2020,...

Let’s take a moment to reflect. As we step into 2021, a new year filled with new possibilities... we first must look back on the year that’s passed, in order to look forward into 2021. To make the best of 2021 you must become someone different than you've been in 2020. If you do the same as you did last year, nothing will change- everything will stay the same. Lunacy is doing the same as you’ve done before, and expecting a diff...
