Help Save the Gulf Coast

by CurlStylist on Tuesday, May 4, 2010


More than 500 concerned citizens used hair mats to soak up oil from Ocean Beach, San Francisco, after the Cosco Busan Oil Spill.

Along with the rest of the world, stylists and salon owners are concerned about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Encourage your salon to learn more about Matter of Trust.

But did you know that just by saving the hair you cut every day, you could be helping clean up spills like the one threatening the Gulf Coast right now?

Matter of Trust is a philanthropic organization that collects hair clippings from all over the world, and ship them to U.S. manufacturers who weave them into mats that can soak up oil and clean beaches and harbors.

After the Exxon Valdez oil slick disaster, Phill McCrory, a stylist from Alabama, realized that hair was an efficient and abundant material for collecting and containing petroleum spills.

So, get your hair cut, and save a fish. Or better yet, encourage your manager to sign your salon up for the program, and save lots of fish, not to mention a beautiful coastline.

Business Building Techniques

Begin having frequent staff meetings and collaborate on business building techniques used by others that you work with. Every salon has success right inside. Get the top booker to explain how they do it. Pair the weakest with the strongest and let them work next to each other. They can learn from what they hear and see. Do the same with retail sales. Share the ways that the top stay on top.

With cross marketing other services, know who the salon leaders are and copy them. Your staff becomes a resource to each other and by sharing dialouge that works, we all win.
