MyCuts: The Ideal App for Stylists

Tues, 30 Jun.

Whatever problems stylists faced in the past, MyCuts has come to solve as many as possible. If you are a stylist then you probably feel the intense workload that comes with having to properly manage your appointments while still being able to find enough time to provide quality services to your clients. It can be a big ask especially when you are a small salon owner and cannot boast of the same resources as owners of bigger salons who have more resources. MyCuts provides independent stylists or small salon owners with an opportunity to efficiently manage their appointments in order to focus on giving their clients the best service possible.

MyCuts is a unique app that provides the kind of flexibility other apps do not. With MyCuts, you will be able to spend less time managing your inventory and appointments so that you can be able to spend more time with your clients to provide quality services. This app provides you with automatic reminders and appointment confirmations, you can be rest assured that your clients will never have to miss an appointment again.

You should tell your clients that this transformation takes a lot of time, and if they want to dye their hair in pastels, then they will have to check with you to make sure you're available for several hours for a particular day. You will have to extract their previous color, to lighten their hair, apply a new color and cut the hair. They will have to spend at least three hours in the salon chair.

You can also keep a record of all your client's preferences including interest and hair formulas just so you never have to go through the stress of digging through an appointment book. Questions like "what did you do last time for the client?" And "What do they like to talk about?" will be right at your fingertips. Taking such personal interest in your clients will certainly convince them to come back another time.

Another function of this app is to help you back up your every daily data so you do not have to bother yourself with it. In the unfortunate event that your device is stolen, crashes or dies you can breathe easy and be rest assured that your data will still be safe on our servers. Your client and personal information is safe with us and will only be made available to you.

There is no gain saying that you will find it hard to get another salon booking app that will easily manage your inventory at a pocket friendly price. To get an app as good as MyCuts, you may have to spend hundreds of dollars. Fortunately, you no longer have to spend all that money to get a quality salon software, MyCuts saves you all that extra dollars you would rather not be spending.

All about non-verbal communication in the hair salon

Tues, 31 May.

Have you ever found yourself in the situation where you would listen to a client and nod at regular intervals? Or turn your head and torso to face them? Chances are that you have. When interacting with clients at the hair salon, as well as with staff members, we use a blend of words, facial expressions, body language, and intonations of the voice. Your movements and postures speak volumes about you. Things, like crossing your arms or puckering your lips, send unconscious cues that provide information to the people around you. Non-verbal communication can have a positive or a negative effect. Good communication is a skill that you should have learned in beauty school, besides cutting, coloring, and styling hair. Improve your non-verbal skills and impress clients. Starting right now.

Importance of effective non-verbal communication with clients

When doing business, effective communication is of the essence. According to recent findings, the total impact of words is only 7 percent. The tone of voice and body language account for more than 90 percent of the overall message. This basically means that non-verbal communication is the most important element. Unfortunately, not many stylists or hair salon owners understand the importance of communication without the use of spoken language. It’s not therefore surprising that their business is struggling, while others are succeeding. The beauty industry makes it easy for us to get in touch with others and they pick up our wordless cues. Take a moment to understand how you and your staff members are presenting yourselves and greeting clients. Do you make a good impression?

Eccentric color do not last long and require high maintenance

More often than not, we don’t pay attention to the unconscious messages that we’re sending. If you’re like everyone else, then just like everyone else, you act as if you were at home. Regardless of the atmosphere in the hair salon, avoid using the same facial expressions or gestures. You’re not at home, you’re at the workplace. Non-verbal communication can affect the client experience, your relationships, and your interactions. Here are the top tips to enhance your non-verbal skills.

  1. Portray your feelings and views – Your face conveys much in terms of way of expression. An arched eyebrow says that you’re surprised. Smiling sends the message that you’re happy and pleased with the outcome. Don’t frown or make grimaces. Surprisingly, the hands are the telling most part of the body. Use your hands during conversations, especially when you’re explaining something.
  2. Learn to make eye contact – When you keep eye contact with clients, you show that you’re paying attention. Eye contact shows that you’re open and responsive to suggestions, ideas, and impressions. However, don’t make too much eye contact. Some people may view it as disrespectful.
  3. Don’t cross your arms or legs –Crossing your arms and legs may be beneficial to your comfort level, but it won’t help your business. This gesture can come off as being defensive. For some people, it’s difficult to display the correct emotions they’re feeling. So, even if you’re not sending a negative message, clients will think that you are. Pay attention to your behavior especially during consultation and appointments.
