BEAUTY: NOTE TO MY HAIRDRESSER DURING A PANDEMIC

person washing woman s hair

I have decided to break up from a 15 year relationship ……..with my hairdresser . Many service providers will be judged on how they treated us during this pandemic. It is evident that there are some Companies who are capitalising on the Covid experience but when it happens with those you have developed a close personal relationship with it is felt more deeply.

Talking to women everywhere the major anticipation of the big 6th July reopening of hair salons ending months of hair hell has resulted in varying experiences . So this is not directed at ALL hair salons but many of you have been victim to greedy hairdressers at this time.

Firstly let me set the scene this is someone who I have supported since she was a junior at a leading hair salon and when she set up her own salon 15 years ago persuaded me to leave with her and support her in the venture. A bi monthly visit for 15 years for highlights plus bringing many new clients with me constitutes major support.

Late 2019 my colourist moved up one level but the prices moved up several levels to almost double. But my loyalty continued. Early 2020 the salon decided they would no longer offer a “finished blowdry” unless you pay another £15. meaning the price rise in 5 months was now 150% . I decided to continue with the “rough dry” which meant i was leaving the salon looking worse than when I went in. Illogical , I know but…….my loyalty continued. All though on occasion I took my own tools in to blow dry my own hair if I had a meeting to attend immediately after. Why pay when I blow dry my own hair better than a junior.

Then the pandemic hit…………..

Many of us were thrown into mass panic not because there was a killer virus on the loose but who would tend to our tresses! Given strict instructions from our hairdressers not to colour our own hair under any circumstances. Of course knowing full well that we would all be clambouring for their services upon their return.

Sure enough 6th July was upon us the pandemonium was in full swing. Despite leaving several messages at the salon for appointments I eventually got an appointment 3 weeks later. It was at this point I realised customer care had gone out of the window and loyal long term customers were not to be rewarded and new customers scrambling around for salons anywhere to help were given priority. FIRST MISTAKE.

Contextually hair salons have had 80% of their wage bills paid , their rent deferred and no outlay on products during this period. On top of this a huge backlog of business building up which means they will be doing way over and above their normal numbers for this trading period. Unlike other businesses this is seen as a neccessity for most women and will not be as affected as other business and could potentially do very well and certainly bounce back in the first 6 months of reopening.

On the day obviously no tea and coffee served but no water either. Although I can go to any high street cafe and get one ? No water either ? Now i understand that coffee can be served in paper cups and bottle of of water could have been made available as in most repiutable salons who value their customers did. After all over 3 hours without refreshments IS a long time for any caffeine addict and of course no magazines to distract me either. SECOND MISTAKE.

But once the foils were in I ventured out to the high street scaring all the locals as if I was a space alien descended from another planet. After walking around for a good half an hour no available coffee anywhere and the local petrol station had decided to clean their machine at 3pm in the afternoon ! No decent glossy magazine shops either. So I settle for a bottle of water and a “Best” magazine.

I arrive back to the salon deeply humiliated and demonstrating caffeine withdrawal symptoms.. Then I am hit with the biggest BLOW of all, there will be no blow drying of hair due to “regulations” although everyone I spoke to during the writing of this article managed to get a blow dry ! Which of course meant I would have to leave with my hair dripping wet ! Please any hairdressers reading this HOW CAN YOU CHECK COLOUR WITHOUT DRYING IT ? My hair would be dry after my long drive home meaning I would have to wash it again in order to blow dry again. THIRD MISTAKE.

several scissors

Obviously I cannot do anything about the salon owners interpretation of the “rules” so they got her on the phone ( yes she was at home with her feet up relaxing while making all this money) but I addressed with her that it may be a little unreasonable to expect clients to pay full price for half the service and perhaps a little adjustment was neccessary it was then that she informed me that she had in fact ” had to put up her prices due to Covid” and “im a business woman here to make money where I can” FOURTH MISTAKE

So with hair dripping wet, colour unchecked, caffeine starved and handing over the worst £100 I have ever spent was then politely told by the receptionist “oh……sorry love but you have to pay £3 for PPE” “but I brought my own mask” I replied . “Don’t matter love, it applies to everyone” she quipped back. FIFTH MISTAKE Witholding my normal generous tip I walked out of the door vowing after 15 years never to return.

Note not just to my hair salon but to hair salons everywhere your clients are not the virus, they are also victims of the crisis just as you are with their own financial problems. Now is the time to build loyalty and compassion not crush. I will urge any customers not treated correctly during this fraught time by ANY business PLEASE walk with your feet straight to another business that cares I am sure during this time there are many that will welcome you in. The businesses that will survive now will be the ones that cosset their customers not squeeze them dry.

FINAL NOTE TO MY HAIRDRESSER……..YOU WILL COME A CROPPER (EXCUSE THE PUN) AND YOUR CUSTOMERS WILL WASH (OH NO ANOTHER ONE)THEIR HANDS OF YOU. BUT THIS COVID CONNING NEEDS TO BE HIGHLIGHTED (LAST ONE I PROMISE!)AS IT SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING TO A LOT OF YOU.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: IT IS HARD TO BREAK UP A CLOSE DEPENDABLE RELATIONSHIP BUT IF YOU ARE BEING ABUSED WALK AWAY AND FIND SOMEONE WHO REALLY APPRECIATES YOUR WORTH.

LIFESTYLE: RADIATING HAPPINESS

Its one thing to have a feeling of happiness but to radiate happiness to people around us is something we need to practise. Happiness is one contagion we do understand, the more we radiate happiness the more people want to be with us and more opportunities flow towards us.

Now doesn’t that sound good ?

Yes when you devlop the light within you and radiate the energy outwards it becomes a ripple effect. The best of you brings out the best in others. Can you imagine if this thought process spread throughout the world . What an amazing place this would be !

True happiness comes from our true self not our physical self, of limiting body , thoughts,fear and emotions. The true self is limitless and lies in the silence wisdom and grace that can be found in meditation. It has no bounds and is infinite. So you can tap into as much happiness that you choose.

Tune into your own thoughts and recognise how you are really feeling. The n notch it up a few levels on your “mood-o-meter” when you surrender to the joy and focus on the good things in your life and recognise that the bad moments are just distractions treat them as positive life lessons. Even forcing a smile releases endorphins and changes your mood in an instant.

DEPRESSED PEOPLE LIVE IN THE PAST

ANXIOUS PEOPLE LIVE IN THE FUTURE

HAPPY PEOPLE LIVE IN THE PRESENT

Deepak Chopra expresses some Do’s and Dont’s in order to radiate happiness.

  • DO express appreciation in others.
  • DO be open to the other persons truth. Respect their point of view.
  • DO wear a smile
  • DO share your laughter
  • Do contribute to the joy of another
  • DO turn your inner happiness to an outer activity
  • DON’T make other people feel wrong. As your self judgement decreases so should judgement of others.
  • DON’T draw attention to how much you have changed and how happy you now are as it arouses distrust.
  • DON”T point out how unhappy someone else is. They are doing the best they can from their own level of awareness.

Psychologically studies show that positive behaviour spreads virally to others.

As more people see the change and the light in you those closest to you will see a new radiance , a new kind of lightness and vibrancy.

LET’S CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER !

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: THIS IS ONE INFECTION WE DON’T MIND CATCHING ! STAY HAPPY AND CARRY ON.

LIFESTYLE: CREATE A HOME OFFICE

As many of us have been forced to work from home over the last month and we still do not know when the lockdown will end, we may be looking for some inspiration for your workspace at home. This could be an alcove, a cupboard under the stairs, a corner of a room or some of you could be lucky enough to have a dedicated room already as a home office. Who knows ? When lockdown is lifted it may become a more permanent and suitable arrangement for you to continue working from home so why not start planning a fabulously stylish office where you just LOVE to go to work everyday.

COLOUR SCHEME

Light or neutral colours make a space look larger. You certainly don’t want it too dark and cosy or you will fall asleep !! keep it clean and tonal. The simple Scandinavian look is very on trend right now. Walls, ceiling and shelves in the same colour works very well which allows you to add some of your personality and a pop of colour with accessories.

WINDOW TREATMENTS

As much light as possible is preferable to keep you alert but it is important to reduce any glare on your screen. Shutters make a good option or venetian blinds as they let enough light in whilst giving you the option to adjust to minimise glare. They also maintain the clean lines of your office scheme.

LIGHTING

Try to position your desk by a window to enable as much light as possible. Too bright lighting can cause headaches and difficulty concentrating. Softer lighting to minimise the blue light from computer screens is a better idea and a good desk lamp for when you are burning the midnight oil !

STORAGE

Filing cabinets and storage boxes are where you can add some of your personality either go bright or just keep it tonal with the walls and floor depending on which look you are opting for. But check out some of my ideas below.

SHOP HERE

DESK AND CHAIR

You may opt to save your statement pieces for your desk and chair. A statement desk does not have to be about colour there are some super stylish natural wood or stone desks around that are real art pieces. Be sure that both are ergonomically suitable. When seated your feet should be flat on the floor with a 90-120 degree bend at the knee. The top of your screen should be eye level if not this is easily remedied by standing your screen on some books etc to raise it up higher. the desk height should enable your elbows to be close to your waist and body.

SHOP HERE

ART

Place some art on the walls that mean something to you and reflect you as a person. Art is very subjective so it has to be a piece that you LOVE to look at. That inspires YOU. Even memo boards or calendars can be artistic . How about purchasing some chalkboard paint and designing your own wall workboard. This can create an ultra modern image.

SHOP HERE FOR INSPIRATIONAL ART

ACCESSORIES

Add some bold and stylish accessories to make the space yours that accent your personality. Items that pull the look together. Find some ideas below.

SELF ISOLATING ?

10 IDEAS FOR POSITIVE PROJECTS

This is a fraught time for many of us especially when we have been told to self isolate. I understand this is difficult for some people but whether you have a family, live on your own or are self isolating with friends this must be turned into a positive experience. It is a forced position we are increasingly are finding ourselves in but its unlikely this will happen again when we have time to adopt new projects and who knows it may make us change the way we live in the future.

Here are some of my ideas but I would love to hear from you guys on inventive ways you are spending your time !!! Fill in the comments below and share.

  • Clear out closets actually try everything on (yes, you have time now !) and if you don,t love it bin or donate.
  • Laser hair removal at home. I have a Phillips Tria (£375) that I never have time to use as it takes SOOO long . But now I can dedicate a proper program to blitz the hair ! If you don’t have one they are currently on sale at triabeauty.co.uk for £249 a whopping £126 pound saving ! So depending on how long we are in lockdown at least you will be hair free by the summer. So buzz the fuzz !
  • Get your old wii fit out ! Having rediscovered mine this week it will now be a permanent fixture it really does boost your fitness and motivates you with targets as you train with instructors who interact. Great if you are missing the gym or feeling lonely. Also use the Wii to interact with the family with sporting olympics. Im loving the wii.
  • On the fitness front there are many Yoga beginners classes it is fabulous for fitness but great for mental health too which may be a stronger incentive for you at this time. 30 minutes every morning in just two weeks I promise you there will be a noticeable difference in strength flexibility and tone.
  • Dust down that healthy cookbook you bought in January and learn lots of new healthy recipes assuming at the time of this publication you can get produce delivered. Or alternatively use a home delivery cookery course such as Gousto. I love Melissa Hemsleys ayurvedic recipes check out her instagram.
Chickpea and Coconut Stew
  • Get out in the garden as the weather is now brightening up and so important to breathe fresh air. Order bulbs and plants on line, jet wash the patio and garden furniture, vacuum the astro turf oops sorry I mean, feed the lawn !
  • Learn an instrument I downloaded a brilliant App called ‘ Simply Piano’ its now been 3 months since I started and my piano playing has improved dramatically. Honestly in 2 weeks even as a total beginner you can be playing Chart tunes by the end of that period. Imagine if we end up self isolating for months you will be a concert pianist. I am totally addicted and I practise every day where possible . If you don’t have access to a piano download a keyboard (virtualpiano.net)
Learn a New Skill
  • Catch up on a box set. I don’t get too much time for TV but I personally have pencilled in The Morning Show with Jennifer Aniston (she is popping over to watch it lol !). I can recommend The Goop Lab (6 episodes) mind blowing informative stuff. Both on Netflix.
  • Clear out the filing cabinet. Sort your paperwork. Shred anything with your ID on. Keep a separate receipts book for insurance and tax etc. Change all your passwords, which should be done on a regular basis and log them in a format only you can understand. I love an orderly office so this is done regularly in my home but it is often overlooked. Yes I am talking to you ……yes you !
Beautifully Organised Files Bliss !
  • Write some beautiful e mails or send e cards to friends and family you are missing. Keep the communication going . They may not be enjoying themselves as much as you as they may not have READ THIS ARTICLE. So do your bit and forward it onto everyone you know.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: I AM THRILLED THE DEN MEDITATION CENTRE IN LA THAT I REGULARLY ATTEND IS NOW LIVE STREAMING THEIR WHOLE SCHEDULE SO I HAVE ENROLLED TO AS MANY CLASSES I CAN. WHAT A TREAT I CAN NOW DO THIS IN LONDON. I HOPE THESE POSITIVE CHANGES CONTINUE. JOIN IN DENMEDITATION.COM I AM TOTALLY OBSESSED. ITS THE THING I MISS THE MOST ABOUT LA AND NOW I CAN HAVE IT IN THE COMFORT OF MY OWN HOME HERE.

KEEP SAFE

FOOD: FIGHTING ARTHIRITIS WITH DIET

Arthritis can hit you at any age. but as you get older or menopausal it is more common than you think. Many of us suffer from stiff joints. I was diagnosed with Osteoarthiritis in my spine about 10 years ago in my early forties. At the time I was walking with two sticks and having regular steroid injections in my spine under anaesthetic. My prognosis was ” you will not get any better but we cannot say how fast it will deteriorate” when it spread to my fingers, elbows and toes, I sprang into action.

Today I play tennis, do yoga have a full and active life and no longer use sticks and definitely no more steroids. Even my consultant has noted down full details of how I fought arthritis and won.

So today I am going to share with you my anti inflammatory diet.Passed to me by a friend in Hollywood.The town of all things healthy. This changed my life and I notice an immediate improvement if you stick to it for 3 days per month only. As I have been busy for the last few months I have omitted for the first time in having my anti inflammatory diet days and my joints have noticeably started to stiffen again.

It consists of a smoothie, hot drink and a soup. You can have as much as you want . I have JUST this. But if you need some solid food stick to fish and vegetables. NO red meat, sugar,carbs, eggs or chicken. No dairy, (cheese is difficult to give up for me ) and absolutely NO COFFEE!! Keep it fairly simple so your body does not have to work too hard.

Smoothie

1 Lime , cranberries, blueberries,cucumber,spoonful of avocado,a few walnuts, teaspoon of spirulina(alkaline).

Whizz up in your blender with lots of ice ( it always tastes better chilled).

Have every morning on an empty stomach.

Hot Drink

Make enough in one go to drink throughout the day so you can let it steep.

Boil in a big pan. 8 lemons, 8 tablespoons of dried parsley,3 tablespoons celery seed,1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder,1/4 grated ginger root. 10 cups of water.

Once billed just leave it to steep. Sieve the tea.Then once cooled leave in a jug in the refrigerator. Heat up and drink throughout the day or have chilled in the Summer months.

Soup

Make a big pot for you to have throughout the day.

2 cups of root vegetables, parsnips, carrots,swede. 2 cups of sweet potato, 2 cups of greens (preferably kale), 1 red onion, 5 celery stalks, a cup of mixed mushrooms, garlic and fresh coriander.

Boil then simmer for an hour. Blend to a puree add more water to achieve a consistency you prefer. This soup does not look pretty but it is actually delicious. When my friends visit and I am on my anti inflammatory days they always love a bowl of this, in fact I am sure they pop around on purpose !!!

Treat yourself gently during these 3 days lots of Epsom salts baths or book a professional lymphatic massage.

I hope this works for you in easing the inflammation like it works for me, but you lose nothing by trying…..except perhaps some excess weight and the sugar ring around your waist.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: IF YOU SUFFER FROM INFLAMMATION GIVE THE BODY TIME TO REST I TRY TO ONLY EAT IN A 4 HOUR WINDOW BETWEEN 1-5PM. THIS GIVES YOUR BODY TIME TO HEAL AND CALM. YOU WOULD BE INFLAMED IF YOU WORKED CONSTANTLY TOO !!

HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY OR 3 DAYS SHOULD I SAY

DISCOVER HAPPINESS YOGA

January is a gloomy month for most people with the cold January nights, shorter daylight hours, financial hardship after Christmas. Many people suffer SAD syndrome and laughter seems in short supply. On a positive note (as I always am) I love January , a new fresh start, new habits to form, cosy nights in catching up on whole series I missed in my long going out Summer days. I am currently working my way through Series 1 of The Crown I can thoroughly recommend it !

LAUGHTER is something we do often as children but it becomes more infrequent as the seriousness of life takes hold. So my fellow stylistas its time to laugh be loud and proud. Laughing is proven to have many benefits.

  • Relieves physical tension and stress
  • Diffuses anger and conflict. Do this exercise with a partner if there is hidden resentment.
  • Decrease pain.
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Increases blood flow which can strengthen the heart
  • Burns calories
  • Releases endorphins the “happiness drug”

As part of my training in the old days to become a Sound Therapist I had to learn and experience Happiness Yoga or…….Laughter Yoga as it is commonly known. This REALLY works and I GUARANTEE will have you laughing and releasing those feel good hormones and lift your happiness levels and fill your endorphin tubes to the brim. It is such fun if you do it with others but even on your own can start your day off the right way. Equally if you have had a hard day do it in the evening and laugh your way into bed great for relaxation and get rid of the days negative energy.

This is SOOOO good I wanted to share it with you………..

  • No special clothing required . Location your own choice. Get the office involved.
  • We are going to laugh your way up the body.

HUH

Stand with your feet apart shoulders relaxed. Hands on your hips. Bounce your body up and down on your heels. On the out breath vocal a series of rapid HUH, HUH sounds (as in the word hug). Feel your abdominal muscles tightening as you make the sound. Focus the sound into your hip/pelvic area. Rest

HO

Place your hands on your belly. Bounce up and down on your heels. On the out breath utter a series of rapid HO, HO sounds (as in the word holy). Feel your abdominal muscles tightening as you make the sound. Focus the sound in your belly area. Rest

HA

Place your hands on your chest. Bounce your body on your heels. On the out breath vocal a series of rapid HA, HA sounds (as in the word happy). Focus the sound in your chest/heart area. Feel your heart muscles vibrating with the sound. Rest.

HEH

Place your hands on or near your throat. Bounce your body by lifting your heels. on the out breath vocal a series of rapid HEH, HEH sounds (as in the word heaven). Focus the sound in your throat. Rest.

HEE

Bounce your body on your heels. On the out breath vocal a series of rapid HEE HEE sounds (as in the word Heal). Raise your arms above the head as you make the sound. Focus the sound at the top of your head. Rest

FLOW

Use all five sounds at random moving from one sound to another in no particular order. Keep the body moving. When you have finished laughing up and down your body, lie down and rest.

Once you really start laughing its a good idea to keep stamping your feet to keep you grounded and stop getting too light hearted.
