Thankyou to all of my amazingly patient clients/ friends 💖 it’s taken me some time to post this. The last few month have been so hard for me! Iv had so many challenges with my health that Iv tried not to let get the better of me. As most of you know I’m type 1 diabetic and now have kidney disease and a whole bunch of other boring stuff. Iv realised I’m a people pleaser and never want to turn anyone away or let anyone down. As a result Iv been working 12/14 hour days to accommodate the request and made myself more ill. Iv had hardly any days off for the whole of June and then i hit a brick wall where my body couldn’t take anymore! My panic attacks and anxiety are back and I only have myself to blame as Iv not allowed myself time off and time to relax. All of this has meant Iv hardly had anytime for admin and people are waiting a long time to get booked in 😬(so sorry!) So, I’m introducing an online booking system which will be live in the next couple of weeks. I’m also going to work a ‘normal’ amount of hours to ensure everyone is getting me at my best and not exhausted with crazy high blood sugars running around like a headless chicken! My health is getting better and I feel motivated and exited for the future 💖 I couldn’t do it all without your constant support! #blownaway#blownawaylondon#support#illness#type1#type1diabetes#kidneydisease#thyroiddisease#selfemployment#hairstylist#hairdresser#puppy#frenchie#frenchdog#health#work#clients#love
💫KNOW YOUR WORTH, THEN ADD TAX 💫
For so long I battled with myself trying to figure out the value of my service, experience, skills and everything that comes along with that.
I’m no longer letting Instagram, Salons or even clients decide the value of my service 😬 (yes, this scares me) As many will know I’m very generous and giving and will do the very best I can to make everyone happy. But... please appreciate this is my business and I want it to grow and be able to offer the very best to each and every client. Which includes always keeping up to date with latest trends and always expanding my education with endless courses 📚 ⭐️ Let me tell you what to expect when you book with me. I’m a normal, hardworking and down to earth person trying my best to ‘Adult’ everyday. I try to provide a funny, happy and chilled experience. Most importantly I LISTEN. My job, is not all about the money! It’s about falling in love with your hair and loving having it done! Hair should make you look & feel amazing! ⭐️ As of 1ST AUGUST my latest price list made in March ‘19 will be applied to all future appointments. If you have any questions please message me 😘 All pricing will be confirmed before each appointment 💖 #blownaway#blownawaylondon#hairstylist#hairdresser#freelance#freelancehairstylist#stylist#balayagespecialist#colourist#blowdrys#bouncyblowdry
Time to reflect and improve... if your self employed you know the struggle!
So, last year I rebranded my business to @blownawaylondon. I left a full time job in sales to really expand and grown my business. I wanted to create my ‘dream job’ that means I can work when I want and only do what I love but also pay the bills. Most importantly I wanted to create this job to work around my health issues and to have a healthy and happy work life balance. This year has been incredible and I can only thank YOU! I’m beyond happy for the support from family, friends, my clients and every single person following my journey!
The last few months have been crazy! I hate saying no or not having enough hours in the day to fit everyone in! Iv been working 12-14 hour days for the last month with the odd day off to sleep & stock up on snacks! I finally got to the point I realised that actually this wasn’t the goal! There was no balance! I love what I do but havent been loving and caring to myself. @costacoffee Drive thru have seen me way too much. They know my order by heart 🙈 After some time to reflect I’m making some changes to how I’m running my business... Over the next few weeks you will see some changes! No more waiting ages to get booked in! Yay 👏🏽 Taking some time has realised there’s so much more I want to offer than just Colours & Blowdrys. Il be introducing some new and exciting services throughout the year!
Iv been speaking to so many stylists who feel overwhelmed and have been so busy. Being self employed is hard work! Take 5, reflect and move on! Let’s do this 👌🏽 #blownaway#blownawaylondon#mobilestylist#hairstylist#hairdresser#launchparty#business#goodiebag#hair#hairstyle#party#hardwork#workinghard
