Hey, Movers! Welcome to our first blog of 2024… Gosh, time really does fly – doesn’t it? Which brings us to the topic of today’s blog: setting goals – on your own watch.
With each new year comes a tidal wave of expectations - and let’s be honest, it can get a little overwhelming. I mean, we understand why the new year feels like a great time to make a change – it’s like closing the book on our past and stepping into a new chapter, rife with hope and possibility.
When big life changes are on the horizon, it’s easy to get ahead of ourselves. Sure, it can be exciting to ponder the potential of a new venture, but fixating on the outcome can make it feel unattainable.
Here at Foil Me, we like to set achievable weekly goals to keep us on track. By celebrating our small wins, we feel accomplished and motivated on the journey towards our greater goals. We have no doubt you have PLENTY of goals on the horizon – big, small and everything in between - but in case you need a little inspo, here are some ideas:
MASTER A NEW TECHNIQUE
The hair industry is saturated with everchanging styles and trends. The possibilities? Limitless. Take some time each day, week, or month to master a new technique without the pressure of time. It doesn’t matter how long it takes - so long as you’ve got the right tools and are focused on getting there eventually. Without time constraints you’ll have the freedom to enjoy the learning process, leading to increased focus and motivation along the way.

Balayage, highlights, face-framing, lowlights – no matter what trend you’re trying to emulate, The Silver Collection has you covered.

Featuring Foil Me's signature embossing and exclusive foil composition, this holy grail hair tool is adored for its unrivalled function and versatility.
INVEST IN YOURSELF
Investing in yourself is one of the best things you can do for your personal and professional development. Whether it’s treating yourself to some new hair tools or furthering your education through private workshops, it’s important to funnel your precious time and energy back into yourself. Upskilling and self-care will keep you refreshed, motivated, and prepared to face whatever challenges come your way in the pursuit of achieving your goals.

SET YOUR SELF APART
For hairdressers, developing a personal brand can be challenging. There’s a lot of pressure associated with building a business that aligns with you, your values, and your strengths. By mastering techniques that you enjoy and using them as a basis to offer specialised services, you stand to build a strong customer base with clientele that align with your vision. If you’re a salon owner, personalising your salon aesthetic to your own unique style is great way to spruce up your space and make it inviting for your guests.
Have you tried: The Designer Collection?
The Designer Collection features a variety of vibrant colours and unique, hand-drawn illustrations. From minimalistic, single-colour designs to vastly complex works of art, this collection is sure to create a point of difference in your salon and spark conversation amongst your guests.
Each step, no matter how small, contributes to achieving your goals. Balancing ambition with the joy of the learning process, investing in your craft, and setting yourself apart are the key to unlocking your career potential. We hope 2024 sees you master those techniques, invest wisely, and set yourself apart to establish your hairdressing goals. Here's to a year of growth, innovation, and endless possibilities!
