Your city is recommending everyone to stay at home, your salon is closed and you’re practicing physical distancing?
Many of us are bored and twisting thumbs thinking of what we could do during this time.
We are reading books, watching netflix, catching up with a lot of friends – but also, we are looking for something useful to spend time with.
We at NATULIQUE have three ideas on how you can spend your time creating something that will last beyond the lockdown, that helps your career or business to blossom even though you can’t be working on the actual craft of cutting hair.
1. Do a hairdressing course from home with NATULIQUE!
At the NATULIQUE Academy, we offer three online courses to support our NATULIQUE Family in the use of our products.
We recommend starting by doing the newest course with Ruby Burne on the upcoming Trends and Fashion of the Spring and Summer of 2020.
It’s a great course to just dip your toes into the academy and see what it actually does.
You may have been on Instagram for a while and post regularly, but can’t quite seem to figure out how to make the best use of the Stories on Instagram? Then this is the blog you should be reading.
Family tip! In this time, your clients will also spend much more time on social media!
This is a great opportunity for you to share some of the knowledge on the products they use at home. Maybe do a live Instagram session with your favourite hair and scalp regimen that can inspire your clients to make a “spa treat” at home. It’s all about continuing to build relationships with your loved clients. You could also share your favourite recipe on Espresso Martini like Jay from Crown London did.
We cover why you should use Instagram Stories for your Hair Salon’s Instagram and what you need to know if it’s your first time using this function.
We offer pro-tips for a hairdresser’s Instagram Story and an introduction to Instagram Highlights and what they can be used for.
Lastly, the blog post gives tips on how to be strategic with your Instagram Stories and even offers a short introduction to IGTV (Instagram TV), Instagram’s newest video feature.
In this post, we cover equipment, lighting, background, composition and the dos and don’ts around hairstyle photography.
You will learn everything you need to know about how to take a good before and after picture that you can use on social media.
These three guides offer some great material to get into while you’re spending time at home. Also, a great time to get started and play around with content you already have on Instagram and posting throwbacks!
3. Listen to podcasts about hair from home!
Podcasts can be a fun thing to do, whether you are laying on the couch, cooking a meal, or cleaning the house. Even better if you can connect it to your passion!
In this blogpost you can find a list of podcast episodes that we recommend! They are sure to fill the hours of your day with entertaining stories and educational lessons – a great mix if you ask us.
We hope that this gives you some ideas of what to do while you are at home! Remember that you are not alone. The entire NATULIQUE Family is with you. Stay home and stay safe <3
