When working up-close to clients in our work environment as a Hairdresser or Beautician, it is very important that we take care of our personal hygiene, body odor is one of the main concerns we need to focus on. When you are performing treatments on clients, a lot of the time you are leaning over them and if they smell body odor on you, this will be very uncomfortable for them and more than likely will not return to the salon for any services, even if they are impressed with your work.
Personal presentation as a Hairdresser/Beautician is very important, as it is the first impression on a client when they enter the salon. If you don’t look professional and clean, the client will not feel confident with any treatments you provide. When you look professional, it show’s that you take care of yourself. Making sure that you are wearing a clean uniform and clothing everyday also helps to prevent body odor.
Also, make sure you sanitize your hair/beauty equipment regularly, as they are being used on every client , that has had a hair/beauty treatment……Dirty hands and fingernails are another very important aspect of hygiene in a salon, as it could mean that you could be carrying infections and infestations from one client to the next. To prevent spreading infections like this you must make sure that you clean and sanitize your hands after every client.
Looking after your salon is not easy, it is a task in itself, you have make sure that your place is safe for your clients as well as staff. It may be the smallest thing that you incorporate like nail tables for nail technicians, making sure everyone wears gloves etc
