Pride Month is here, and it’s a time when we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) and their many contributions across society. As a hair or beauty professional, you know the exciting impact this community has had on the industry over the decades. The traditional ‘male’ and ‘female’ trends became more gender neutral, and this kind of self-expression is something that we can all now enjoy.
Hair and beauty are two of the key ways that we can display our individual identities, and so Pride Month gives you the perfect chance to help LGBTQ+ clients express themselves. Before we give you some helpful pointers on how to encourage a diverse mix of clients in the salon or as a freelancer, let’s remind ourselves why Pride Month is so important.
