As a successful stylist and founder of the Style Boss Academy, I’ve seen it all in the industry. I’ve come across some sad stylist types, and in this blog post, I will share them with you. If you identify with any of these, it’s time to change.
The first sad stylist type is Copycat Cara. This stylist doesn’t have an original idea and decides to copy everything from successful stylists. Copycat Cara will copy everything from a successful stylist’s website to their Instagram bio, and it’s not flattering; it’s sad. Copying someone else won’t make you successful. You must forge your path, learn from the best, and create something unique.
The second sad stylist type is Nine to Five Nora. Nora complains about her nine-to-five job and dreams of being a stylist. She’s been singing this song for ten years now. It’s time to either quit or get off the fence. Being stuck in a job you hate is sad, and it’s time to make a change.
The third sad stylist type is Sally Step Skipper. This stylist wants to be a stylist, so she sets up an Instagram account and changes her bio. She looks at other stylists’ websites, puts together a package, and sets up a website. The problem? She skipped all the essential business steps, like branding and social media. Businesses are built in a specific order, and you won’t get results if you miss steps.
The fourth sad stylist type is Perfectionist Penelope. This stylist wants everything to be perfect, so she gets stuck. She hasn’t perfected her logo yet, so she keeps working on it. Done is better than ideal sometimes, and there’s no such thing as perfection. It’s okay to make mistakes and learn from them.
If you identify with any of these sad stylist types, it’s time to change. Don’t be afraid to learn from the best; forge your path and create something unique. Don’t get stuck in a job you hate; make a change. Don’t skip the necessary steps in starting a business, and don’t strive for perfection. Remember, done is better than perfect, and there’s no such thing as perfection. It’s time to stop being a sad stylist and become successful.
