Our Salon Gold Superstars must-haves

By Sally Learmouth on December 28th, 2023

Don’t you love finding out what other people’s go-to products are?! We asked our mentors what they can’t get enough of…

How many times have you sat staring at your phone thinking “I haven’t posted for days, I know I have to post something, but what?!”

I used to do this, it took over my life, it caused problems in my relationships, I was ALWAYS on my phone!

I was spending all this time on my phone, but getting nowhere…
That was until I discovered the power of planning ahead.
I am now a power planner.
I am obsessed!
I ALWAYS know exactly what to post and spend a fraction of the time I used to on Instagram.

This planner sets out exactly how I like to plan with space for audio and caption ideas, using the ideas pages to quickly jot down ideas before organising them into your weekly schedule.

I cannot live without my Social Media Content Planner

My ultimate favourite product right now is the Lash & Brow Growth Serum from KG Professional. It’s a must have product in your makeup bag regardless if you have lash extensions or not! The results are incredible with being able to see a huge difference within 4-6 weeks. If you’re a lash extension wearer I highly recommend to use to keep your natural lashes strong which is exactly what I do. I also love this product for beauty businesses to retail because, 1. Your clients are going to love the insane results and 2. Your profits will be better than ever as the mark up on this product is huge, so it’s easy extra money for you to make.

I absolutely love my Leaf scissors, not only are they a sustainable brand who plant trees for every pair of scissors purchased, but they are made with Japanese steel, which is essential to me as I’m allergic to nickel, so these don’t affect my allergies. The quality of the scissors and razor is really nice, professional and it’s very neutral with branding, whereas a lot of scissor brands are very masculine. These have a gorgeous brand aesthetic.

As a curly girl, I need something to work miracles between wash days to redefine my hair. I love the O&M range which is packed with ultra moisturising, decadent ingredients and was immediately drawn to the creamier formulations, but the dark horse for me is Frizzy Logic Finishing Shine Spray. It’s light but luxurious and defines my curls while making my hair soft and shiny. And it smells DIVINE! It’s my absolute must have and lives by my hall mirror for a reviving spritz before I leave the house.

I absolutely love our appointments software, Square appointments. Of course beauty appointments are the bread and butter of my business, so having a booking system makes the process of clients booking their appointments seamless! Everything is electronic including consultation sheets, waiting lists, automated messages and so much more. It’s transformed my beauty salons making them so much smoother to manage without the need of a full time receptionist.

I cut and style hair for a living so with the help of some very clever people we managed to create our very own water based matte, aptly named “ESSENTIAL” because this is essential to create the styles that we do! I was looking for a gap in the market and working towards a product that had great hold and looked natural, dry and matte at the same time! I’m a firm believer that the cut and the blow dry are monumental when creating certain styles, but without doubt, this product has to be one of the best in the world when it comes to creating soft and natural styles with great hold.

For many, 2023 was a very tough year as a salon business owner. I’ve had my fair share of challenges pop up too but the key thing is to stay calm and centred in any chaos. If we find our calm it triggers our parasympathetic nervous system which is not only great for our health but it activates the part of the brain that helps solutions come to us easier. 

Staying calm and mindful is probably the most underestimated powerful thing we can do as business owners so I’m never without my Innercise App in my toolkit by my mentor John Assaraf from the film and book The Secret. 

The exercises are as short a couple of minutes and are super easy to do.
