If you have the iPad, download the NY Post. If for nothing else, just to get a laugh. They have the best headlines every day.

Congratulations to Regis Corp. stylist, Tim Findon! Tim took first place in the Stylist category of the first-ever Matrix Mannequin Mania competition.
Competitions are a great way to re-energize your creativity. You wouldn’t give this look to a client, but challenging your skills teaches you what’s possible. And it’s a lot of fun. Then translating what you've learned about cut and color into new looks for your clients can ignite a passion for your work.
Thanks Tim, for your creative vision. We're really lucky to have amazing talent in our salons.
Tim Findon is a stylist at Outlooks for Hair in Harrisburg. PA. Read what Tim said about his winning look, "Calais" at http://www.mannequinmania.com/vote/?mannequin=1

I am extremely disappointed that I missed our managers' meeting in Las Vegas this past weekend. I was really looking forward to the trip and seeing you all. I am also missing the next Hair Book shoot in NY, which I always look forward to. So, needless to say, I am disappointed.
I will say that the hospital staff is getting a kick out of me. I am able to get them to laugh—it's probably due to my inappropriate behavior and jokes.
Hope you all are having a great day. Remember, having a great day is a deliberate choice on your part - make the most of it!
Also, pass this site along to your fellow stylists. I am looking for followers. And, if you have any feedback for me on the blog, let me know! Email anything you would like to see, hear about, etc. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and good luck!

Highlights and lowlights really enhance a client's cut. You can boost her look and her mood with vibrant color and healthy, shiny hair.
A 15-minute in-salon conditioning treatment nourishes and moisturizes hair. It's also the perfect time for your client to sit back and take a deep breath.
Waxing is like a mini makeover. In just 10 minutes, your client has a fresh look.
Make the season bright for everyone in your salon.

Retention: Be nice to your clients and they'll come back. Yes, it's that simple. A smile, eye contact or saying "hello" makes a customer feel welcome. Take interest in your client's style by teaching styling tips and helping them choose products. And a "Thanks for coming in. I love doing your hair, " goes a long way.
Referrals: Asking a client to refer you to a friend can feel awkward, but it doesn't need to. Your regular clients should be happy to refer people to you. Just remember, don't ask a first-time client for a referral, you're still developing your stylist/client relationship and they may feel imposed upon. Wait until the third visit to ask a newer client for a referral.
Try the two Rs of building a client base in the next two months and keep track of your progress.

Clients get frustrated when they can't recreate a great salon style at home, and choosing just one product from a wall of products can be overwhelming. Save your clients from wasted time and money by sending them home with the right products. They'll be happy and they'll look great.
Try it: Suggest a product to every client for the next month. You end up with happy clients and more money in your paycheck.
