    The Art of Consultation w/ Danielle Wulff

    We have all gotten so caught up in the technical side of hair, that sometimes it's easy to forget about the interpersonal skills, The Consultation!

    Hands down the most important part of the service, it's their first impression of you and the salon, the way they will remember you, the part that can make or break a service. But I won't dive to deep into it, because Educator & Hairstylist Danielle Wulff is here to break it down and remind us of the little things that make a BIG difference.

    The Clients P.O.V with Simone Narissa

    The Clients P.O.V with Simone Narissa

    The founder and voice behind the Foils & Coffee Podcast, Simone chats with clients to get their perspective on their appointment! Sometimes we need those little reminders that they might not understand what the heck we're talking about, or if they're upset about their hair, it might not be us but something internally going on.

    This is a great episode to break down not only the importance of a consultation, but how we could do better in our consultation to understand our clients point of view.

    Take a listen!

SuiteOwner ,

So Needed!!

I have needed a podcast like this for a long time. Especially now as a suite owner like so many, it can feel like we are less interactive with fellow stylists. This podcast serves as a morning pep talk for me often... linking me back into the wider community of my industry and I love it!!
