Are You an Owner or an Employee in Your Studio?
Are you the boss, or are you just another worker bee in your salon/spa?
Let's get real for a sec. So many folks dive into salon/spa ownership thinking their passion for hair, skin, or whatever their niche is, will automatically make them great bosses. But here's the scoop: running the show takes way more than just being good at your craft.

You've gotta be the leader, not just another stylist or therapist. When you're constantly behind the chair, your team sees you as a buddy, not a boss. And trust me, that's not a good look. Sure, it's awesome to be liked, but when your team feels too cozy with you, respect goes out the window. And let's not even get started on the drama that can stir up.

Your team was hired for a reason—to serve clients, make bank, and keep the place buzzing. But when you're stealing their clients, it's like robbing Peter to pay Paul. Your job as the big cheese is to support your squad, not compete with them. So, if you're constantly playing stylist because you're short-handed, it's time to hire more help.

Running a salon isn't just about making clients look good—it's about running a tight ship. From keeping the cash flowing to dealing with client complaints and everything in between, there's a ton on your plate. But when you're too busy cutting hair, the ship starts to sink.

And let's talk about excuses. Blaming your business's problems on everything but yourself? Not a good look. It's time to take ownership of your responsibilities—keeping the business booming, your team happy, and clients coming back for more.
At the end of the day, being a boss means stepping up and owning it. Sure, it's tempting to stay in your comfort zone and work your magic with clients, but running a successful salon or spa means being present, accountable, and ready to tackle whatever comes your way. So, boss up and watch your business thrive! 🚀
