Salons tend to be high energy, lively, and fun. They can also be a place of ongoing stress and anxiety. The cumulative effects of stress in a hectic salon can cause stylists to become overwhelmed and burned out. Adding a mindfulness meditation group to your salon’s schedule allows for a regular space for calm, while offering a place to learn the powerful effects of mindfulness. In addition, it can bring a tremendous amount of healing to your stylists, who can be ill-prepared for the role of caring for their community.
I recommend this as a bimonthly addition to your in-salon services, open to all staff members and guest.
