A Glimpse at Hair’s New Year’s Resolutions

by hjiadmin / last updated December 20, 2021

In what seems like a fleeting time, we are coming to the end of 2021. As we welcome the new year, all attention is on what 2022 must bring.

For HJI’s Season of Giving, we have decided to take a look at some of the hair industry leaders’ New Year’s resolutions.

Jenna Omar, Racoon Educator and salon owner, Hair Unique

“My big plan is to launch properly launch our upstairs Hair Loss Clinic. I opened the salon just before we went into the first lockdown and so we have spent the last 18 months focusing on keeping the business alive and growing gradually. The new clinic will offer wigs, hairpieces and advice. We are reaching out to local hospitals, Women’s groups etc to promote our Racoon hair in recovery services and Banbury wigs and have registered with our local authority to offer NHS prescriptions.”

Darren Webster, Electric Space London

“I will be focusing on business and family life. Work is going to be super busy with a new opportunity to develop education and branding on Electric Products. My main focus here is to time manage to make sure I can be with my children. My son and daughters are all at great times of their life, I would hate to miss any of their journey.”

Jason Cocking and Chris Baker, 4 Theatre Square Hair, Swindon

“My new year’s resolution is to be more on top of finance, I always put off invoicing etc so instead I’d like to be on top of all of it and super organised. I’m also fed up of only being able to find one sock in the morning so another resolution is to fold them all in to pairs.”

Brooke Evans, BE Ironbridge

“My main resolution is to prep my meals more, to save me going home and ordering food in. I’ve taken on an extra apprentice this year – despite not having the space to but you need to hold on to but you need to hold on to people who are determined to make a storm in this industry, so my new year’s resolution is to train all of my apprentices in more cutting education and gents hair.”

Siobhan Haug, British Colour Technician of the Year, TONI&GUY

“I want to learn how to take my time! It’s a crazy thing to say when we’re all so busy in life and work, but I’m happiest and my work is at its best when I’m unhurried and get to enjoy every moment of what I’m doing.”

Dale Hollinshead, Salon Director, Hazel & Haydn

“So, my new year resolution is to not let the inconsistency of life with covid stress me out by making sure I take time for myself, realise that it’s a false economy working so hard that you actually sometimes don’t more forward as a result. Take some time, better decisions will be made as a result.”

David Corbett, David Corbett Hairdressing, Bothwell, Glasgow

“2021 has been such an up and down year, I’m hoping 2022 isn’t quite so crazy! I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions but next year I’m hoping to make plans that don’t have to be broken and spend time with family and friends.”
