August Healthy Hairdresser Challenge: Share Your Hands-Up Experience

by Lauren Salapatek | July 31, 2015

”Take a deep breath. You can do this. You have the talent. Here, let me show you how I do it. Let me know if you need more help.  Let’s take a class together. Here’s how I talk to my client…”

If any of that sounds at all familiar, then you have had a  “hands-up” experience in your salon career.

This month’s Healthy Hairdresser Challenge presented by sponsor Parodi Professional Care is all about celebrating the professional mentors who have taken the time and effort to lend a hand to help another stylist learn, grow, and feel encouraged and supported.

With a background as a licensed hairdresser and educator herself, Parodi Founder Linda Gilette Parodi knows that this type of collaboration and mentoring can be as important to a salon professional’s success as hands-on education itself.

To further foster these valuable, peer-to-peer exchanges, Parodi is challenging salon professionals to share your hands-up story at modernsalon.com/healthyhairdresser.

In 100 words or less, explain how a mentor, friend, co-worker or teacher helped you through a challenging time in your career or experience in the salon. Fifty salon-pro respondents will receive two sets of Parodi Hand and Foot Creams, specifically formulated for hard-working salon professionals--one set to keep, one to share with your mentor/helper.  Another 100 entries will receive two samples of Parodi Daily Moisturizing Cream.

The August Challenge is open through August 31, but early entries are encouraged.
