New Year Hair Resolutions

To celebrate HJ’s Season of Giving, we asked salon owners to reveal what their business New Year Hair Resolutions are for the coming year…

Jim Shaw, Owner and Director of TONI&GUY Billericay and Current Men’s Hairdresser of the Year…

“For me 2020 is about getting more involved with education and educating and inspiring other hairdressers. Men’s hairdressing is really different from barbering and I want to be able to teach other hairdressers the difference between these and how men’s hairdressing is about putting away the clippers and using scissors. Mentoring and training people is my passion and my goal is to do this more and become known as an ambassador for men’s hair.”

Leandro Santos Santana, Owner of Decode Hair by Leandro…

“2019 was a great year for me, especially with winning the gold category for Creative Artist of the Year at the Wella TrendVision Awards and with the salon being open one year. In 2020 I really want to get more involved with helping other hairdressers to create and develop outstanding hair looks on models. I also want to get more involved with other competitions and possibly put together a collection. Stay tuned!”

Simon Hill, Owner of SESH Hairdressing…

“2020 is set to be a great year and education will be one of my main focuses throughout the year. I will be hosting my own education seminars with Wella – ‘the business of brides’, and am really excited to share my knowledge of both bridal hairdressing and the lucrative business that goes hand in hand with this.”

Brian MacMillan, Salon Director, F&M Hairdressing…

“In 2020 I will be undertaking a full analysis of the business, to see what worked and what needs improvement. I will be conducting our staff one to ones so I can plan and prepare for our staff training for 2020. We will also be meeting with our product companies to see their plan for the coming year to see if we need to make any adjustments and make sure 2020 is a success. At the end of January we are going on a well earned holiday!”

Robert Eaton, HJ’s British Hairdresser of the Year and Creative Director at Russell Eaton Salons in Leeds and Barnsley…

“My New Year Hair Resolution is to start the year as organised as possible. I always love to catch up with the team at the beginning of the year to discuss the year ahead, our own salon goals, their personal goals and how we can work together. I have always set myself my own goals to work towards. Winning HJ’s British Hairdresser of the Year this year was one of my ultimate creative goals, so I am very excited and motivated for 2020 and what myself and team Eaton can achieve and create for the industry.”

Kerry Mather from KJM Salons…

“Early 2020 is going to be a challenge for KJM Salons as some team members go on maternity leave and off travelling around the world. My New Year Hair Resolutions are to work extra closely with the remaining staff to help build their confidence, their skill and their clientele and keep KJM Salons on the map and growing from strength to strength. 2020 is KJM Salons 30th year in business and the team are off to Marbella in September to celebrate, hopefully all the “wanderers” will be back by then!”

Mark Creed, Director Colourist at idlewild, Oxfordshire…

“Our New Year Hair resolutions are to commit to more education for our team than ever before;  at idlewild we’ve branded 2020 as ’The Year of Enlightenment and Perfect Vision.’ Our programme of planned team education will manifest in many ways and will include expert product knowledge and understanding, elite artistic training from both within and external guest artists, along with a spiritual, physical and well being approach for all team members; there will be an extra focus on mental health well being.”

Salv Mulé – Salon Director Academy Salons UK…

I want to make sure there is an education plan put in place early January. Educating my teams  is a a big part of what makes Academy work ! I will ensure every team member has set up personal and work goals. Their managers will be their mentor and will help, support and encourage them  to help achieve their targets. My personal 2020 goal is to mentor my mangers and salon principals into achieving their goals and most importantly have a great work life balance , this is crucial for a happy productive team.”

Lisa Shepherd Balmain’s UK Creative Ambassador…

“I’ve had a wonderful six months in my position as Balmain’s UK Creative Ambassador and can’t wait for 2020 where industry and education plays a key part. My salon is still solid 17 years on and I’ve done the huge roll out with big numbers of staff. I now go for small and strong with a high skill set.”

Joe Mills, Joe and Co, London…

“Our New Year plan and goals across the brands is to take what we have learnt this year and move it up to the next level! As a company, we have really started to raise our profile in the industry with competition work and education and for us, that added a lot to what the team got out of being part of the brands.
We opened three sites and a pop up barbershop in 2019 which was an amazing achievement, but in 2020 we want to really push on and secure the business with the expansion of the brands and team that we have around us.”

Sharon Malcolm, Sharon Malcolm Hairdressing, Newtownards, Northern Ireland…

“I never make New Years resolutions, but this year it’s a bit different as we enter a new decade. We’re celebrating 20 years in business in 2020, I opened my salon in 2000 so the 2010s have been an amazing decade for me and for 2020 I am hoping to offer clients of Newtownards even more when it comes to technical services and customer service. Winning Northern Ireland Hairdresser of the Year was incredible and I want to raise my profile internationally with my collection, which I am very proud of. I am also working on something exciting which will be launching next year so am currently finalising plans for that. So watch this space!”

Clive Collins, HOB Salons…

“2019 has been an incredible year for us at HOB Salons. However, there is still plenty for us to do. For 2020 we will be focusing on our colour services, and elevating what we offer to our colour clients as well as growing our colour business overall. 2020 is all about the client journey and we will be investing a lot of time into creating the best client experience we can offer. The high street will continue to be challenging and we want to be the number one place for experience, relaxation and hairdressing expertise.”
