    How to retail successfully?

    Does anyone else find retailing in the salon a hard slog , everything’s found on the internet and I am exhausted with trying to explain why the £1 shampoo in the discount shop is not the same thing [emoji849] Also I am increasingly seeing salons selling lots of other things , trinkets ...

    "Fed up" owners group

    These are all the reasons why I am selling up and to be honest I feel liberated by the decision. Just want to work for myself and not have to manage people anymore.I constantly feel like I have to be on everyone's back all the time to have things done as they should and it's exhausting.

    Wages/commission advice

    You would need to be paid at least the minimum wage for your age or the living wage if you are over 25 but this can include commission. Maybe she means you get £50 then 10% of everything you have taken that day but usually there's a target first so just ask her. Contracts can state also that...

    If you weren't a hairdresser what would you be and why ?

    I have always thought a police officer would be interesting but I would probably get upset at some of the cases . I am thinking I would like to work with animals.

    "Fed up" owners group

    I agree that stylists have no idea what the reality is of actually being an owner ! All the worry but not always much more money. Anytime staff need holidays, maternity, sick leave, bereavement leave or have to leave in an emergency we need to cover or sort it out , you NEVER switch off, you...

    "Fed up" owners group

    Oops I think that suggestion might have come from me [emoji85][emoji23] and yes I would be on here all the time if I had a fed up owners group [emoji106]. I actually had quite a nice day today with very nice pleasant clients, why can't all days be like that eh ! Sorry to hear you had a quiet...
