Thinking differently about how you charge for your time may be better for you and your clients?
Now is a great time for stylists to reexamine how they have been pricing their services and think, instead, about charging for their time and product used, says stylist and coach, Joy LaMay, who has been passionate about this industry and the people in it for over 16 years.
LaMay says that many of the business practices stylists establish for themselves are not conscious decisions, but are adopted because “this is the way we’ve always done it.” She encourages them to break down old rules and old ways of thinking and do things differently.
“It can feel like a revolutionary act but when we crunch the numbers, we see that some of us are getting paid below minimum wage, and that is what is going to keep hairdressers from staying in this industry for the long haul,” LaMay says. “They work themselves to the bone, they’re exhausted, and they can’t be financially stable.”
