Countdown to Christmas from Brooks & Brooks
Christmas is just over a month away – so are you ready? Now is the time to start planning and guaranteeing your clients have a happy stylish season. Jamie Brooks, co-owner of the award-winning Brooks & Brooks salon in central London offers these tips to a successful and happy Christmas!
Christmas is a really busy time in the salon so the key is to make your salon a fun place for your clients and your team.
Atmosphere Is Key
There are thousands of salons across the country but creating an atmosphere is what separates your salons and the one down the road. We all do the same job and at Christmas it’s all about the experience so make sure you offer not just a great cut or colour but a great place to be as well.
Treat Your Clients
We turn our salon into a Santa’s Grotto throughout the whole of December and we give every client a Brooks & Brooks scented candle to say thank you for their loyalty throughout the year.
Time To Earn Commission
Christmas is so busy it’s a great opportunity to earn a bit more money through commission, so make sure you have spoken to your manager prior to the festive season about your commission structure.
Take Time Off
We give our team the option of working extra time before Christmas when it’s busy in exchange for time off in January. Everyone needs some time to recuperate and this means we are fully staffed during busy times and team members know they have some extra days off coming up
Give Something Back
Christmas time can be quite self-indulgent when we think about ourselves and what we want. We create gift boxes for local disadvantaged children which is a great way to give something back and move the focus away from me, me, me.
Above All, Have Fun!
Christmas can be busy but make sure you say yes to as many Christmas events as you can make the most of the great time of year.
