Self-Care for Hairdressers
HAIRDRESSER STRESS BE GONE!
Contrary to popular belief, hairdressing is a very stressful job. Hairdressers are trusted to help people with their image and help them feel better about themselves. I meet hairdressers all over the country who work really hard, yet they have lost their way creatively or are burned out and unhappy, wondering if they should do something else to make a living. They make very little money, and they move from salon to salon, hoping the next position will be better. Hairdressers do all sorts of things to control the anxiety, depression and anger in this very demanding career choice. This book focuses on what they don’t teach you in beauty school.
In these pages, you’ll discover:
–Why many stylists leave the industry, burned out and underpaid, even though they may be booked in the salon.
–Why a lot of stylists are exhausted and losing sight of their hopes and dreams for their life.
–What they don’t teach you in beauty school.
–Ways to manage stress, recognize the signs of burnout, start to dream again, and reconnect with your purpose, joyfully discover the professional that you were meant to be, and make the money you deserve.
Hairdressers often discover just how stressful of a job they in the midst of the beauty surrounding them. That same beauty that they are expected to bring to their clients day-in and day-out. Rebecca Beardsley has written a new book to reach her fellow hairdressers before the stress burns them out. Her book, Self-Care for Hairdressers: How to Prevent Stress and Burnout and Step Into the Professional You Were Meant To Be, fully intends to do exactly what the title claims. She shares why stylists burn out, and offers some of her favorite tips on how to rid oneself of the inner tension and reconnect with the passion and purpose of doing work they love. Beardsley gives hope to exhausted stylists with her simple, yet powerful suggestions.
Self-Care for Hairdressers is a very quick read, and Rebecca Beardsley’s tips and exercises are brief, but her passion and empathy for her fellow hairdressers shines through. For those stylists, who are swamped trying to make ends meet, this short book is a chance to give themselves a boost in the right direction. The exercises and suggestions Beardsley shares are simple and easy, which makes them quite practical. In fact, readers can implement these strategies into their lives immediately upon reading Self-Care for Hairdressers. And, for those who want more, Rebecca Beardsley shares a free gift right from the start. Readers will receive 5 Amazingly Simple and Effective Self-Care Strategies that Will Lead Hairdressers to a More Joyful Career. Yes, readers have to go to her site to get it, but it is available as a complementary piece to the book. If you’re a hairdresser, you’ll most likely relate to Self-Care for Hairdressers. And, if you’re not, your hairstylist, probably would. This little book could very easily make you view your career (or your stylist’s) in a very different light.
The Mastermind behind Self-Care for Hairdressers:
A native of San Francisco, Rebecca has styled hair for over 30 years in the Bay Area. She remembers loving fashion at the age of eight, influenced by her mother and five sisters, all of whom had great style and propensity for artistic expression. Rebecca’s mother sewed matching dresses for the girls, painted her nails, and could be described as a fashionista in Hong Kong in the 40’s, where she was raised. Her sisters wore the latest fashions, styled their hair, and applied makeup. Her father’s travels all over the world by sea piqued her interest in travel, customs, dress and hairstyles of other cultures.
Rebecca integrates all the early experiences of shape, color, texture and mood with a great deal of passion while creating beauty and collaborating with other like-minded artists. She provides makeup, and hair services on location for print and film. She is owner of ShineForth Salon, is a member of the National Artistic Team, as well as a member of the Styling Council for L’Oreal Professionnel, leading and building courses in Hairdressing in New York City. She is also a member of the Professional Beauty Association (PBA).
