It’s the end of 2016. Regardless of how your resolutions for this year turned out, it’s never too late to set yourself up for a good start next year. Today, as our last blog before 2017, we’re going to list some simple things you can do to give your hair extension business a makeover for the new year (we already know that you’re really good at makeovers). So let’s get to it!
This is a fairly straightforward one—transform your salon space by moving around the furniture, adding some seasonal decorative elements, or some business-specific marketing materials and displays. Not only will this revitalize the salon itself, it’ll also clue your clients in on all the services that you offer.
Update your inventory.
Depending on your inventory management style, you may be overdue for an inventory update. In 2016 alone, Babe introduced a number of new extension methods, colors, and tools, including our Instant Hair line, Flat-Tips, Fusion Cutters, Hair Organizers, Styrofoam Mannequin Heads, and several ombre shades. With all of the new additions, you may find that you’re missing a few revolutionary items in your salon.
Master a new method.
There’s no better way to boost your extension business than to introduce a whole new method to your arsenal. Our Online Education portal is more equipped than ever to teach you the ins and outs of our various extension methods, from I-Tip, Tape-In, and Fusion to Lash extensions. Enroll today for access to the training videos, including Babe certification (if you so choose). Certification in Babe extension methods puts you on our Certified Stylist list, so potential new clients can find you easily from our site. You’ll also be able to provide your clients with more service options.
Introduce Instant Hair services.
Speaking of more service options, Instant Hair extensions provide a load of opportunities to extend new services to your clients, including extension fitting, trimming, and coloring services. We even have an Instant Hair Rewards program to give you more returns for your investment. Learn more about how you can use Instant Hair to enhance your business by clicking here.
Introduce a customer rewards program.
Take a cue from the Instant Hair Rewards program and introduce your own rewards for your most loyal clients. Enable them to collect points for attending all of their recommended maintenance appointments, collecting all of their hair extension upkeep tools, or bringing a friend into the salon. The possibilities are endless.
Reboot your enthusiasm.
Motivation is the best indicator of success, so get back in the hair extension groove by treating yourself to some live Babe events. We offer trade show classes, Mastery Tour events, and even local-level courses with certain Babe distributors, all of which are guaranteed to increase your enthusiasm and improve your extension skills! Connect with fellow Babe stylists and learn in an engaging, fun environment. You can find our next destination right here.
