September is the month of self improvement. We all have things we would like to improve or change about ourselves, whether its physically, mentally, in our career or our home life.
Sometimes all that is needed is some TLC and a bit of positivity to change a mind-set and improve a person’s outlook. Find out how to help your clients be the best version of themselves in our blog, and maybe you can take some tips for yourself.
As professionals in the hair and beauty industry, we spend a lot of time talking to our clients and getting to know them. If you feel like your client isn’t quite themselves, if you feel comfortable, ask them how they are feeling and see if you can help in any way. A lot of the time, people feel better after talking about their problems or concerns. As they say, “A problem shared is a problem halved.”
How can you help them?
Sometimes you need to put yourself first. Encourage your clients to book in for their favourite facial or a massage every now and then, to make them feel refreshed. You could introduce a loyalty scheme in which returning customers receive a free mini treatment, voucher or discount after they have visited a number of times. Your customers will feel valued and happy with their treat.

Spend time with friends or family
Being around people that you love and who make you feel happy will make you feel better about yourself. Encourage your clients to spend time with others by offering 2 for 1 discounts or pamper nights for your customers.
A new look
A fresh hair cut or colour is a great way to refresh a look and revitalise someone. If a client is feeling low and is experiencing low self esteem and confidence, suggest a new look. A refreshed style can symbolise an “out with the old, in with the new” approach, which can help them to feel more positive. Change is good.
What makes YOU feel good?
We spoke to our team to find out what the do to be the best version of themselves…
Ellie – “I feel like a new woman when I get my eyebrows waxed, I feel a lot more confident and happy with the way I look. I also like to get my nails done, I have always bitten my natural nails but don’t when I have acrylics. Getting my nails done makes me feel a lot more professional, sophisticated and more confident when speaking to people.”
Jennie – “I feel really great after I get my hair coloured at a salon, it looks more refreshed and healthier. I feel a lot more confident with the way I look and feel I can take on the world.”
Paige – “ I feel like the best version of myself when I’ve got fake tan on, it just makes me feel more confident in whatever I’m wearing.”
