Collect your thoughts… Have you ever heard the expression, “what gets written down or focused on gets done?” That is one of many reasons why daily journaling is an effective, rewarding practice for many people. It can also be a mindful way to de-stress at the end of the day.

For salon professionals interested in adopting a Healthy Hairdresser lifestyle, keeping a journal can support your efforts to “take care of you” in one or all of our three areas of body, spirit and business.

This month’s challenge is sponsored by salon professional brand Fuel, who empowers salon professionals to personalize a journal in any style you wish, with words and visuals. Share your journal ideas and intentions (excerpts are optional) at modernsalon.com/healthy between July 1-31 to win one of 10 “MY PORTFOLIO” books—a personal, customized, quality hardcover book produced especially for salon professionals to showcase you work and inspire your guests during consultations, valued at $150!

TAKING THE CHALLENGE IS EASY

Step 1: Decide what kind of journal you wish to keep and for what purpose (or tell us about your existing journaling practices). According to Fuel’s educators and experts, you can use a journal to:

  • Stay present and focused on personal and professional goals, ranging from diet to exercise to salon retail and service sales.
  • Record something that happened during the day – including dealing with a difficult client. After you write it down, pledge to forget about it and start fresh tomorrow.
  • Document any bright idea or inspiration that struck you during the day that you want to remember.  Log any new techniques you want to explore with your guests this month.

Step 2: Visit modernsalon.com/healthy between July 1-31.

Step 3: Complete the easy “Daily Journal” Challenge form.

Step 4: Provide your mailing address and phone number to be entered to win one of 10 “My Portfolio” custom books from Fuel.

There were MANY highlights from the 2019 MODERN Artist Connective Artist Session photo shoot held recently at the Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, but one that caused a lot of buzz was the creation of the decorative florets created by Haley Garber (@beautybyhaleygarber).  Garber spent hours creating dozens of the florets that were eventually placed in the hair to accent the three final looks by Garber and her hair partner Stephanie Hodges (@stephstyles) who created the beautiful and dimensional color.
