Thoughts on Booth Rental

My ideal job as a hairdresser is to specialize in color and color only. Perferrably I wouldn't even have to do blowdrys. I don't live in a market that provides this opprotunity so I rent. I'm full…Continue

Melissa Stanford replied to Jamie Cessar's discussion Needs some advise ASAP! in the group BOOTH RENTERS
"My advice is to stick to your clients, advertise for yourself, and walk away when drama arises even if you are perceived as rude. You're a renter, run your business. Anyone else's business isn't yours."

Melissa Stanford replied to GlamaZonGirlz's discussion Booth renter taking supplies from other stylist in the group SALON BUSINESS FORUM
"This is easy. Lock everything up at night that can be locked up. Make a clear "no borrowing" rule, and enforce it. It's hard to be mean to the people you work with, but you have to be if you want it to stop. Make it clear unauthorized…"

Melissa Stanford replied to Susan Dean's discussion Is NYC impossible??
"I've seen a lot of NYC salons want stylists to have followings. If you don't have any, maybe you should try applying for assistant positions,just to get in the door, and work on building new clientele.  Also some of the greatest…"

Thoughts on Booth Rental

My ideal job as a hairdresser is to specialize in color and color only. Perferrably I wouldn't even have to do blowdrys. I don't live in a market that provides this opprotunity so I rent. I'm full service, but believe me I push color like non-other. I've been renting for awhile now, and I have some thoughts I would like to share on my experience and throw out some advice, since I have seen a lot of posts about renting in different areas lately. Take it for what it's worth if you're a renter,…See More

Melissa Stanford replied to Noorieh's discussion Stylist's trust
"I'd run from you. What you're doing is against the law. You can't charge people money and then make them meet production and participate in salon culture. It's coersion and can actually get you prison time. If you're…"

Melissa Stanford replied to toni hiegel's discussion Time to further my career but I'm needing some advice on becoming the next GREAT
"Good question! I think this is largely a matter of luck. You either know someone and get noticed through media work, or something similiar. If you find anything out let me know because I want to be an educator for a certain company and get no…"

Melissa Stanford replied to Annalee Gilbert's discussion Getting back behind the Chair. Literally
"No one is going to say that to you. :-)  Just explain that you looked in other places but ultimately your passion is in hair. You are qualified, they will hire you. "

Melissa Stanford replied to Kristen Cruz's discussion Commission to Booth Rent...? in the group BOOTH RENTERS
"Hmm, that is my advice! LOL.  Facebook is great. Set up a fan page, post specials to local groups, and direct them to your page to "like" it.  Have a contest giving away hair product at x number of likes so people ill press like…"

Melissa Stanford replied to Brittany Sweley's discussion Pricing in the group SALON BUSINESS FORUM
"It's up to you if you want to package that service or not.  I include haircuts with my color charge, but I know some people charge less, or they charge ala carte.  What are you doing now? "

"Booth rental is awesome Kristen, but I think Shannon oversimplified it so I want to make you aware of some issues that you need to consider.   1. You DO need clientele when you start booth renting, because if you don't, you will still…"

Just as the solar eclipse made its way over Austin, the Kenra Professional team took the BTC stage for their sixth year in a row. And, as one of the only teams to be with us since the beginning, they made the stage their own and hit us with bomb color tips and celeb-worthy upstyles. Laken Rose, @hairandmakeupbysteph, Cassie Siskovic and David Lopez talked the importance of products, getting creative without always having to prelighten and perfecting your styling skills. #behindthechair #thebtcshow

Joico brought together haircoloring masters Vivienne Mackinder and Mark Minetti and social media stars @stylistricardosantiago, @philipring and @larisadoll for a presentation overflowing with color. So many models. So many formulas (which will all be up on behindthechair.com later this week!). So much education. First, Vivienne, Ricardo and Mark shared tips on how to complement different face shapes and use haircolor to contour. Ricardo shared his favorite rose gold formula (which he says is still his most-requested color in the salon) and Mark demoed an amazing peachy blonde. Then, Larisa and Phil shared a new color technique they’ve been working on for three months JUST for our show! #behindthechair #thebtcshow

Ammon Carver, Leah Freeman and Matt Swinney—2017 Stylist Choice Award winners for Favorite Education Team—served major take-home tips that will definitely make your life easier behind the chair. For example, Leah (fresh off her #ONESHOT win for Big Shot North American Creative Color Shot) recommends balayaging on wet hair for max speed and the best blur. And we loved when Ammon gave a shoutout to Matt (another #ONESHOT winner for Big Shot North American Avant Garde Shot) and Leah for always pushing him and each other to work hard at their craft. #behindthechair #btconeshot17 #thebtcshow #btcfam #btcready
