Does anyone else find hair extensions a stressful job?

#1
So I’ve always done extensions Part time but for the last few months I’ve been doing it full time (self employeed from home) and I’ve actually been finding it quite stressful.
I find even if I’m not working, I’m reply to clients, worrying if hair is going to be delivered on time, if my clients will be happy with their hair when I do their fitting tommorow etc.
I just find my mind is always on something.
I don’t think it helps that my supplier tends to send hair that dosnt match the ring and then I’m always worrying it’s not going to match. But I can’t find any other supplier with hair that lasts as well for the price.
I just overal find it stessful and don’t feel like my mind is ever just blank lol
Does anyone else ever feel like this???
I do love my job, but just find it demanding and stressful most days

yea i feel the same on times.
what suppliers do you use?
i feel like i've got my complaints procedures down to an art. in the last 6-7 years i can't recall any complaints that weren't totally warranted, or had any bad vibes with clients, and 9/10 always come back... i always say before they leave, any problems get in touch, i'm always here etc, and never act like its a big deal because it rarely is..
the thing i struggle with the most is comparing myself to other hair stylists who do the exact same as me going on lush holidays and driving range rovers while i settle for bognor regis and a 1.2 fiesta :(
comparison is the thief of joy!!!

I use euphoria one mainly! Who do you use? X
Yeah I do always make sure aswell to say To let me now if you have any problems, but I do occasionally just get the odd fussy client who for example will complain about losing 2 strands or something -.-
Awww yeah I have other stylists around me doing the same thing ha but the ladies around me who look like they are doing well with there range rovers and that do have super expensive prices , so I try not to compare!

Ha! Yes I feel you! I’m fully booked all day everyday 4 weeks in advance and still only drive a fiesta and still have to save furiously for a holiday! Mind you I do love my job and my prices make it affordable for people who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to sell a kidney to afford hair extensions.! All those delighted happy clients who have heaps more confidence due to your skills will make all that stress worth while. Xx

Agreed euphoria ones hair is amazing but there is always a tense moment that the colours are sometimes off and that can be stressful! I’ve found that the mixed blonds are all the same regardless of what I order but I have addressed it with them and they are looking into it. Would love some more ash colours as everything still seems to be coming up warm. The downside of dying Brazilian hair though I think x

I agree with all the above... I think that us stressing over our jobs just proves that we care about what we do and the results we achieve .. I don’t think it would be normal if we didn’t get stressed or a bit anxious.. I too use euthoria and majority of the time I’m always happy with the results but unfortunately there is always the odd occasion where the colour isn’t quite right.. I just try and allow my self plenty of time to send the hair back if need be xx
