Hairstylists of Hope:
Have you ever been bullied? Made to feel less than human? Encountered by Narcissists, Sociopaths or Psychopaths? Abuse of any kind?
I have. My name dragged through the mud in a smear campaign just for telling the truth.
Little did I know it was exposing the lies the imposter was hiding. Bullied and called derogatory names.
We have all been hurt at some point in our lives. Whether it has been by one of the mentioned above. Online cyber bullying. Made to feel less than human for being part of the LGBTQ community.
Remember it gets Better.
As a fully licensed Hairstylist and Salon Owner I saw the abuse from the industry towards one another in their community. The client who comes in who has an abusive partner and needs to leave. The Tran-gendered person who needs to make a change but afraid the stylist will laugh and ridicule them. Or the kid or adult ready to take his/her life because of bullies.
These are the people we as hairstylists encounter everyday. I say enough!! Have you had enough already?
My passion is real when I see that I and others can give hope. We as hairstylists connects will these people everyday. With Hairstylists of Hope (Healing Through Education) sensitivity training assists hairstylists in these situations. Building confidence. Creating great hairstylists. Better people.
Hairdressing Schools are a Business. Never teaching you how to deal with these concerning issues. How to open a salon or even how to be successful. How sad.
Living in Toronto, On Canada. We have a very large LGBTQ Community with one of the largest Pride Parades in the world. This community trusts us as hairstylists to take care of their needs in a non-judgemental empathetic sensitive way. Myself I use and implement sensitivity training in my own salon as well when I teach other salons.
For a Trans person regardless of what stage they are in you need to go beyond the superficial by going deeper. Finding a style that will flatter a MTF to soften the jawline. Using the correct pronoun. Making comfort a number one priority for the new client and having them feel comfortable enough to re-book again with you. Is your the environment inviting and ready?
Myself I service transgender clients as well as the LGBTQ community with care, love and respect. You never know the life someone is living or the pain they carry when not in your chair. That is why Hairstylists of Hope sensitivity training is so important to the Hairstylist Community.
Your chair may be the start of their healing place.
