A New Season Means New Hairstyles

But a new summer means a lot of sun, wind, water, and sand, ie, some of our hair’s worst enemies.

The hair styling life comes with three major problems.


  1. Clients who don’t know what they want.

  2. Slaying too hard.

  3. Back problems.

You can fix the first one with the second one. Unfortunately, slaying like a samurai master with a pair of scissors is often fixed by the third problem: musculoskeletal problems. In fact, back problems are the number one health concerns for hair stylists, followed quickly by sore feet, nutrition, and carpal tunnel.

And if you’re working 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, it isn’t if you’ll have back problems, it’s when. You aren’t doomed though. There are a few simple things you can start doing every day that will help keep your future back problems in check.

It’s a new year, spring is inching closer and people are starting to get an itch for change. And that means new hair styles.

Whether it’s styling chairs, shampoo chairs, or manicure tables, your equipment needs regular cleaning and maintenance.

People are getting wild out there with it, but the most common use is the Fanola No Yellow shampoo, which a lot of stylists use as a way of pre-coloring. So not all of these hair colors are just Fanola colors, but they were definitely brought to you by Fanola in one way or another.
