A Stylist’s Clean Beauty Guide to Women’s History Month

We love that our industry is female dominated every month but especially during the month of March! Women’s History Month is an important time to celebrate and recognize the amazing women in our industry. Especially the women who have pioneered the way to get us to this point. 

We champion the women in our industry and our clean beauty family every day but this month we’re sharing ways you can share in that with us and with the women in your lives. 

Support Other Salons + Stylists 

Women supporting women is essential especially in business. This can make a huge impact on your business and is a great way to make someone’s day! 

Some ways you can accomplish this without losing clientele are to: 

  • Shout out another salon on your social media
  • Partner in a product or service giveaway
  • Get your hair done by a fellow stylist and shout them out

Write a Sparkling Review For a Women-Owned Salon, Business, or Stylist! 

We all know what great reviews can do for us as stylists. Taking a few minutes to write a review for a female stylist/salon can significantly impact their success. They will truly appreciate this small gesture and they will be prompted to do the same for you and your business. 

Be a Mentor for Someone New to the Industry 

Beauty schools across the country are constantly graduating new stylists into the industry. We also know that the best education comes from working with and/or being mentored by a successful stylist in the industry. Whether they’re new to your salon or not, reach out and offer to help them out. From career advice to technical skills, this will be a great opportunity for an upcoming stylist who may be intimidated by being new to the industry. 

Be an Ally for Female Stylists + Salon Owners  

Taking the time to educate yourself about intersectionality, inclusion, and diversity, will help you truly understand unfairness, especially for the women barbers and women-owned businesses in our industry. This will allow you to see the progress, how far we have come as a society and also recognize how far we still have to go. Continuing to educate yourself on women’s history, as well as the history of our industry will give you a better understanding of the things women have done to get us where we are today.
