As you prepare to make the move into a beauty studio of your own, you may be thinking about how to get your new location off to a solid start. With summer quickly approaching, appointment requests may be increasing as clients prepare to change up their look for the new season. Although most guests have a clear idea of what they want, it’s helpful for stylists to stay on top of the latest trends to guide clients who need some inspiration. Your clients trust your expertise, and providing suggestions when invited to do so helps build those critical relationships. Interested in keeping up with some exciting trends that you can pass on to your clients? Here are a few of our summer-ready favorites:
Sun-kissed vibes are perfect for summertime, so it’s no surprise that many stylists are having requests for highlights. Similar to the ash blonde trend for fall, we’re seeing a lot of smoky blonde, barely-there highlights inspired by Hailey Bieber this season.
Remember the soft layers of the ‘90s? Like many trends of the ‘90s, this look is coming back. If you’re a fan of Friends, you can probably picture Rachel’s iconic hairstyle. If your clients are looking to shake up their style with something wispy for summer, face-framing layers are a flattering and low-maintenance option.
On the opposite end of the spectrum is the blunt bob. This style is another excellent choice for those looking for a no-fuss cut that can be easily maintained. Unlike the long bob that’s been a trend for the past few years, the blunt bob is shorter and better suited for warmer weather. Plus, this cut can be tailored to any face shape and hair type, so it’s a versatile recommendation from stylists.
With summer just around the corner, many clients are ready for a fresh look and are motivated to make appointments. If you’ve been thinking about making the transition into business ownership, it may be a great time to move into your own beauty studio.
