Improve your personal confidence

10 ways to Increase Personal Confidence

10 quick and practical methods to share with stylists/therapist to help iincrease their confidence

1. Think about someone in the salon who is confident and act, talk and walk like him or her.

It works for them; it will work for you.

2. Smile a lot more.

That doesn’t mean putting a silly grin on your face! But smile when you walk around the salon, when you meet & talk to clients and generally be happier even if you’re not feeling that way.

3. Learn from the past.

Don’t beat yourself up about it. It’s gone; it’s never coming back. Instead learn from it for next time.

4. Are you prepared for situations?

Are you prepared enough to meet any situation that may come up?

  • Are you prepared when you meet a client for the first time?
  • Are you prepared to answer clients questions?
  • Are you prepared to give clients good haircare advice?

If not, get to it.

5. Play to your strengths.

Know what you are good at and expose yourself to these opportunities at every opportunity – because you’re good at it, you’ll enjoy it and have more confidence.

6. Improve your weaknesses.

Know and appreciate what these are and put a plan in place to improve them over time.

7. Be positive.

Look on the “can do” side of things rather than the “can’t do”. You’ve accomplished lots in your life so far and you will accomplish lots more in the future.

8. Be in charge of your thoughts at all times.

What is a thought? It’s just a question that you’ve asked yourself and the thought is you’re answer. If you’re thinking negative thoughts, you’re probably asking a negative question. Change the questions to be more positive.

9. Improve your body language.

The way that you move your body has a massive impact on your confidence levels. Move your body assertively and walk with your head up, shoulders back and as though you’ve got somewhere very important to go. Feeling low in confidence? Change you body language!

10. Emotion is created by motion.

As in 9, make sure you move around consistently. This creates energy and gets the blood pumping around you body – it makes you feel better and more confident – no more sitting in the staffroom!
