    Black Market hairdressing

Ireland have recently declared that hairdressers aren't opening until 20th July (at the very earliest) This is purely out of curiosity and I don't want anybody to pre-judge or bad mouth...

    Do I have to let clients know about price increases?

    Hello everyone I just wanted to get peoples opinions on wether or not you contact your clients in advance to let them know of price increases? Or if you let them know at payment. I feel like this is an odd thing to ask as personally i dont see the point in letting most clients know beforehand...

    Trade test, kind of

    So I had an interview with a really nice salon today. He seemed very interested in hiring me. I was waiting for him to invite me for a trade test but instead he's invited me to the salon tomorrow because he has a creative director from sassoon doing training with his stylists and he wants me to...

    Interested to know

    This is more for self employed stylists but also for those of you who are employed.. How to do you guys deal with clients wanting cheaper prices on your services or those clients who are always trying to knock the price down. Just out of curiosity, wondering how people go about dealing with this?

    So my boss has made me self employed (long story) Instead of me renting a chair she has done it on a basis of 65% to her 35% to me. Naively I agreed to this not working out how much she was actually taking. Ive built up a busy column at this salon and on most days I take more than she does as...
