Healthy Holiday Moments: Take the November Healthy Hairdresser Challenge!

It’s a fact—salon pros give, give, give ... all holiday season long! Your busiest, most wonderful time of the year is also the most stressful.

That’s why this month’s Healthy Hairdresser Challenge sponsor—CosmoProf—encourages you to “gift a little back to yourself,” through much-needed healthy moments in your salon workday.

Make the pledge to add one healthy action or ritual into your busy day in November, then share your healthy holiday moment online at You will be automatically entered to win one of 30 “Holiday Gifts of Beauty” surprises awarded throughout the month of November—courtesy of CosmoProf and their brand partners—so you can pamper and treat yourself with an extra boost of beauty.

In the special issue of MODERN SALON Holiday that you received earlier this season check out the Holiday Gift Guide for examples of the special items available. You can also visit or your CosmoProf or Armstrong McCall store to see the entire selection. In the special issue, you’ll also find plenty of other beauty tips and ideas to share with your clients, to make the season less stressful and more beautiful for everyone!

Your healthy holiday moment can be simple and fun, creative or big, bold and life-changing! Just be sure it genuinely works to help you replenish and sustain your energy, positive mood and strength throughout.

Some ideas:

  • Organize an herbal tea break for yourself or team.
  • Commit to five-minute-meditation exercises or “quiet time”
  • Bypass holiday sweets for healthy snacks
  • Invest in a new pair of “healthy” shoes for the salon

After you’ve practiced your healthy holiday moment at least once, share it on between November 1-30, 2015. Then, watch your inbox to see if you’ve won one of CosmoProf’s 30 “Holiday Gifts of Beauty” surprises.
