A musical genius who had celebrated his 90th birthday, continued practicing his cello
EVERY DAY for one hour. When a younger professional musician asked him, 'Master, why
do you think you need to continue practicing? You are known as one of the finest
musicians in history?"
.... Here's how he answered: "You know, I think I'm beginning to make a bit more progress!"
As artists, salon colorists have the opportunity to learn something new almost every
single day. The message here is to never, ever stop learning... THAT is what keeps us
at the top of our game. As difficult as it might be, learning from both our successes and from our errors keeps us striving for excellence.
I have communicated successfully and rather CLEARLY with salon clients during my life in New York City.. And, for many years, I felt very comfortable doing so.
I share, (with a bit of stress), that I have learned that successfully communicating with clients here in a new city, (Houston), requires a different approach...
a different tone, set of words, and newer descriptions. Clients here expect that the colorist list each color step "A LA CARTE, rather than learning, in general terms, about what they can expect in order to enjoy a beautiful hair color result. B
