'TO DO' LIST (number 1): Ten Ways to Make the Most of Your Time at Home

Friday, 27 March 2020 12:39

The concept of isolating the entire professional hair industry from its clients for an indeterminate period of time is very hard for us to get our heads around. We can support each other and our clients by sharing our experiences, anecdotes and advice on the MUST HAVES and HOW TOS of getting through these tough times.

Apart from the physical, emotional and psychological implications for hair professionals themselves, many clients are also really struggling – only now are we beginning to understand what a vital and indispensable service our hair professionals provide, one which invariably goes far beyond hair creativity: friend, ally, confidante, psychologist... This guide is a joint-effort by our international editorial teams, who, in a joint effort with hair professionals in both the UK and elsewhere, are sending out their advice and ideas on 5 key topics

HERE IS OUR FIRST OF FIVE TO DO LISTS: 
 
Ten Ways to Make the Most of Your Time at Home
 
1. Make space for your hobbies, especially if they involve inspiring your creative side - this way you can stay both grounded and mentally active. 
 
2. Remember also to make space for others by showing kindness and generosity in a spirit of mutual support and solidarity. 
 
3. Enrich our cultural background, broadening our horizons. Far away from everyday life in the salon, our mind is free from its normal restrictions, 
 
4. Re-think the ethical behaviours and practises that can really enrich our lives, transforming our path every day. Rediscover new personal values and beauty and take advantage of the opportunity to rethink your philosophy of life and work,
 
5. More family-time is always a good thing, but it can also help you take stock of the wider issues that really matter to you
 
6. Take responsibility for feeling good about yourself and maintain the personal standards that are, in normal times, so important to you. Pyjamas and slippers are not a great look for video conferencing – in any case you'll feel better if you look better.
 
7. When it comes to keeping your technical skills up to speed, remember that as a hairdresser you've developed your manual dexterity to an extraordinary level. Make rules and stick to them as regards 'keeping your hand in'
 
8. Cultivate a positive approach to your circumstances and reject  destructive criticism or antagonistic attitudes. Embrace introspective research and proactive approach.
 
9.  Maintain human contact through social media and digital platforms: each day choose different people to interact with and share opinions with. Take note of what they say and feed off their ideas.
 
10. Give space to your imagination, which is free to expand beyond the confines of the home.
