Mid-Career Crisis

The Mysterious And Not So Mysterious World Of The Imagination

Creativity is a deep word, and sometimes feels elusive, wouldn't you agree?  We think some people are born with it, some people believe they don't have a clue, others work hard at it, some are even lazy about it.

HOW IT CAN MAKE OR BREAK YOUR TEAM Too often you hear the word "competition" and you either freak out, especially if you consider yourself to be an introvert. Yes, competition unchecked can be the ruin of salon moral, but healthy competition elevates everybody on the team.

Relaunch of Rebeccabeardsley.com

My site is relaunched with a fresh new look, and will be moving forward with a whole new focus of content, and body of work that is for you, the hairdresser. You, you are who I have in mind when I write in the morning, after I close my eyes and contemplate.

IMG_0220   While sipping my coffee, I ask myself, what does our industry need? What do hairdressers want?  What would make their lives easier? Are you ready for the answer? The purpose of this blog is to bring you content that will have your pause for a moment and think about your life as it is, and think about where you would like to be in a week, a year, three years, 5 years, 10 years and beyond.

Take the Magical Mystery Tour of Your Mind and Body

Have you ever got up in the morning and started getting ready for your busy day at the salon, and you feel like you are doing the same old routine? At some point you will need to take the magical mystery tour of your mind and body when you are feeling stuck. For some of you, this may be daily, for some you it may be twice a day, and for some, every hour. You may even feel you are trapped in your body, with no access to feeling good. Nothing feels fresh, in fact, you walk or drive the same old way to work. You eat the same pastry and drink the usual coffee, day in and day out. You look up and your hair is even looking like it did three years ago?

Rid Your Space of Stuff & Free Your Mind Have you ever noticed stuff accumulates faster than the blink of an eye?  It's as if, while you are sleeping invisible little minions begin to work away at adding to the piles on your desk, or on your dining room table, laughing as they do?

How You Can Learn From Them

Have you ever worked next to a hairdresser who has to be better than everybody else? You know the type I am sure. They are to cool for school. They have enough magnetism to draw the salt from the ocean.  You hear them, before you see them.

They charm their way through the salon, turning heads as they go. It looks like life hasn’t touched them with any adversity, no scuffed shoes for them. And you wonder what is up with that?  

Grow With Us On This Wild Ride
