The Australian Hairdressing Council (AHC) has launched a day dedicated to the salon community in all its deserved glory, titled Love Your Hairdresser Day. The day will take place next week on Tuesday November 10 with the organisation hoping it becomes an annual occurrence. The event asks the salon community to celebrate themselves, their teams and their business and gives the opportunity for clients to show their appreciation, bringing a bright spark to a difficult year.

The AHC wants to bring this tradition to the second Tuesday of November every year, getting the whole salon industry involved in the dynamic day. The organisation has created a multitude of social media tiles salons can share on their platforms and with their clients, which can be downloaded via the AHC resource page. They ask that the tiles are shared with #loveyourhairdresserday and #sharethelove hashtags.

The tiles suggest how clients can show their appreciation for a salon community and individual hairdressers and small businesses that have done it tough this year, while always lending their services, empathy, knowledge and skill to make clients feel and look better in any situation.

They suggest that clients can send a kind message, post positivity on the salon social media page, send flowers, write a five star review, recommend them to a friend or buy a gift voucher. So many of those are gestures are free, small ways to make hairdressers feel great and actually elevate their businesses, while spreading the word and rewarding great service, so it’s a great thing to encourage to clients and get behind as a whole salon community.

Next week will be a week to celebrate the strong, resilient, skilful and passionate hairdressing community we’re all proud to be a part of, so spread the word and give yourself a well-earned pat on the back. Happy Love Your Hairdresser Day!
