Do what makes you feel good, still do your hair and make-up if you’re working from home – it will boost your confidence, and when you’re confident you perform better. There are lots of things you can do from home to still keep up with your beauty. Use this time to clean your make-up brushes, practise a new make-up look, mask your hair, and take care of your skin. Stay at home, and don’t touch that box dye, which could cause permanent damage and hundreds of pounds to repair. Support your local stylist by waiting – stylists are people pleasers by nature. We want to make our clients happy – that being said we are doing everything to accommodate our clients when we are able to return to work … If you need a cut, try styling your hair differently for the time being. Cover your roots with a hat. You will likely regret it if you take matters into your own hands.
We are all in this together! I personally cannot wait to get back to work, too see all our amazing clients and put you all out of the regrowth and long, unmanageable hair issues that we are all facing!
Take care in the for now and more importantly, stay safe!
