Are you a jack of all trades type of hairstylist?
Years ago you would wear that like a badge of honor. I used to look up to the senior stylists who specialized in cuts, color, updos, mens cut, and perms. They had a wide array of clients and were booked out for weeks, if not months.
Makes sense right? Be good at everything and you'll be sure to build a clientele quickly.
So, I followed that path. I did all the services(well, except perms😱). And I, too, built quickly to being booked moonnnntthhhhsssss out. Like, my clients booked for the entire YEAR.
That sounds amazing, but it's not as great as it may seem.
Being a jack of all trades, and potentially a master at nothing, with a completely full clientele leads to
I was overbooked, squeezing clients in, coming in early and stay late. Working 5 days a week 10-11 hour days.😴
Then one day, all of that changed. I decided to
find my niche
become a master
whatever you want to call it. I decided to stop being kind of good at all the things, and become passionate and intentional with my work, my craft.
It's been 3 years now that I've declared my niche with balayage. I continue to study and perfect my speciality and my world has changed.
I work 3-4 days a week and just 5 1/2 hours a day. I'm no longer burnt out and I love the work I do everyday.
If you were to declare you niche, your specialty right now for the next 5 years, what would it be? What do you wish your book was full of every single day?
