Salon professionalism is taken for granted.
Every salon thinks they have it until they are told they do not.
(Check out your salon DO's & DONT's here.)
Remember all of the shenanigans you have seen on Tabatha Takes Over?!
As professional hairstylists we get complacent about our salon. We get in our routines and comfortable with our co-workers and clients.
Then we forget how our language or actions may look to our clients.
If it's true that every client counts, every dollar count, AND IT IS, then it makes sense that every word counts, every action counts.
Our clients see ALL.
Salon professionalism isn't hard. It just needs to be consistent and the accepted culture within the salon.
If you refuse to tolerate unprofessional behavior you are setting the tone for the proper culture. On the other hand, if you choose to accept and participate in unacceptable behavior in the salon I want you to realize you are taking money away from the business.
You are either adding value to your salon or you are taking value from it.
There are many things that affect stylist professionalism. I can't think of them all but I know you have something that bothers you.
I'm inviting you to share your salon observations so we can all raise our culture.
Do you have a great salon etiquette tip you want to share?

I want to share this fun video of some client complaints.
I know how much it sounds like complete common sense but folks, if it weren't actually happening in salons and barber shops there wouldn't be a need for this page or video!
