The Benefits of Being a Mentor to Other Beauty Professionals

If the business you’ve built has reached a point where you’d benefit from moving to private (or shared) salon studio suites, becoming an Indie may be the next logical step in your career progression. Indie provides much more than just a gorgeous salon studio–we pride ourselves on our one-of-a-kind network of beauty professionals. Whether you’ve been a part of this industry for decades or you’re just getting started, you have a place here. If you’re a seasoned professional, Indie is a great place to not only receive advice, but to mentor others along their path. Here, we share more about the benefits of mentoring other beauty pros:

Broaden Your Network

Our Indies specialize in virtually every beauty niche under the sun. From estheticians to hair and lash artists, we’ve got it all here. Regardless of your strengths and specialization(s), acting as a mentor to others can be an excellent strategy for expanding your network. We love referrals here, and mentoring a friend who’s also a business owner may benefit both of you.

Greater Career Satisfaction

You undoubtedly love your job because you have a passion for your craft and clients, but mentoring others can add even more enjoyment to your career. If you remember how tough it was to get started in this industry, or you’ve made mistakes that you’ve learned valuable lessons from, you can help others put their best foot forward. There’s no denying that it feels great to be able to offer advice or be a shoulder to lean on for others. 

Develop Leadership and Communication Skills

Regardless of what the future has in store, strong leadership and communication skills are always a plus. Acting as a mentor to other beauty professionals will give you an excellent opportunity to hone these skills in a laid back, no pressure environment. Since your fellow Indies are peers, there’s no awkwardness about offering advice or sharing tips that you’ve learned along the way. Indie even hosts occasional Zoom sessions where you can share advice with others.

The Perks of Leasing Our Salon Studio Suites

When you’re ready to take your career to the next level, investing in salon studio suites may be the best decision for your business. Our stunning studios are often what attracts our Indies, but the community is by far one of the most beloved aspects of our business model. As an Indie, you’ll have ample opportunities to learn from and connect with others in your field. There’s no toxic work environment here–just professionals who genuinely want to help each other succeed. Interested in learning more about availability?
