Keeping busy whilst the salons are closed

You wouldn’t be alone in thinking ‘here we go again’ as the United Kingdom is plunged into its third bout of heavy restrictions to combat Covid-19 since last March. It is a mentally tiring cycle for everyone and we want to express that we are here for all hair and beauty salon owners, employees and freelancers throughout this difficult time.

While salons are closed we’ve pulled together some suggestions to keep busy for the time being. This could be a good time to learn something new, sharpen your skills and prepare for better times to come.

1. Take care of yourself

First and foremost, the most important thing to do at this time is to be kind to yourself. We’ve gathered all our advice in one place to try to ease any worries you may have during this time.

2. Learn something new

Thinking of using this time to learn a new skill? With face to face courses currently on hold why not try one of our brand new online training courses? Including a live webinar assessment with an experienced educator the courses provide you with the opportunity to train from home with access to an online portal providing you with all the tools you need to learn a new skill!

3. Brush up on some new skills with our starter kits

In the mood to try something new? We’ve gathered up some of our most-loved kit options to help you on your way to trying out a new skill. Helping you to feel productive in this, let’s face it, pretty nerve-wracking time, but also allowing you to try something new that you can offer as a service when businesses start running again. Plus, don’t forget the added extra of getting to pamper your household a little in the meantime.

4. Review retail opportunities

While you wait for you business to reopen, why not recommend and up-sell to your clients to take care of themselves while they wait until they can see you again. Take a look at our article reviewing the trending haircare categories of the moment, and the best retail opportunities for you and your business.

5. Switch up your product range

Thinking of making a change to the products you usually use? There is no better time to review what works for you and your clients. If you're thinking of making some cost effective changes then look no further than our S-PRO essentials or own brand colour ranges provide you with amazing quality at great prices? Alternatively if you are thinking of making a bigger change to reflect the retail consumers switch towards green products why not check out our Vegan collective which aims to provide you with all the options you need for your clients when they come to you looking for a vegan alternative without compromising on quality.

6. Refresh your space

Thinking of using this time to refresh your salon? Or changing the set up for safety reasons? Browse our equipment direct range, made to fit all budgets, or if you’re looking for something more specific, take a look at our salon refit and wider options.

7. Restock essential products

If you haven’t done so already re-stocking on essential products would be a great idea when thinking about tackling the post-lockdown rush. We advise you to save with our bulk deals where you get more for your money on small and large quantities delivered directly to your door.

8. Prepare for Spring!

When the Salon’s do reopen, we know the idea of coping with continuing safety measures and the rush of returning customers can be an intimidating prospect. We’re here to try and help in any way we can, with hair, beauty and nails supplies to help you cope with the influx of customers wanting to sort their at-home-botch-jobs.

With the hope of Spring around the corner why not get in the summer spirit and stock up on everything you need for your customer’s pre-holiday treatments.
