I think we are all a bit naturally prone to telling people we are busy wen we aren't - gives a more positive view of your business.Thank you for your words everyone, I felt very alone with it as I know other stylists who are telling me they’re all busy. They might not be telling the truth, but either way it was making me feel like it was me!! And then you start questioning how good you are at your job etc. Fingers crossed for us all xx
My hairdresser was telling me that her bookings were keeping up but in the conversation it became clear that she was actually only in 3 days a week.
Also, my appointment was on a Wednesday afternoon and I was out by half past 3. By the time I had got back to my car and drove past the salon, it was all dark and closed up!...so obviously i was the last for the day.
We are all just trying to keep ticking over and come out the other side in tact, everyone's the same with reduced demand. You are not alone.
