I love getting my hair done! When I travel I make an effort to book a hair appointment wherever I am going. I’ve had my hair done in Belize, France, Dominican Republic, Ireland, England, and most of the United States.
But you know what? I have learned that most hairstylists never schedule appointments for their own hair. Instead the experience is usually something like this:
- Get it done when you have a free minute at work, and when (by the grace of God) one of your co-workers has a free minute too.
- Coordinate to come in on a day off and do your co-workers hair while your own hair is processing.
- Or worse still, we sometimes take matters into our own hands.
Because of that a lot of hairstylists (especially seasoned ones) actually grow to hate having their hair done. And that is a problem. By not carving out time in your life to actually set up an appointment to get your hair done in a salon like a normal client you are missing our on a bit opportunity for professional development.
