here’s the rundown:

Maybe you can relate…

I struggled with making ends meet and began hating what I did for a living and couldn’t understand why because I DID have the talent and enjoyed the craft...

I felt:
Exhaustion
Had an inconsistent income & schedule
I had influencer envy
And totally feared technology

me
 

After years of trial and error, I finally started embracing it and began to figure it out and that’s what I’m going to share with you today…

Today:

  • I’m consistently booked months in advance

  • I have almost 4,000 quality followers

  • I’m the one deciding who I want to work with

  • I’m charging what I’m worth

  • I’m helping others build the same lifestyle & career through the power of your online presence


 
 
step-1

The thing(s) that might be killing your earning potential

 
frustrated
 

Lack of focus:

  • “Jack of all trades, master of NONE”

  • You don’t want to be mediocre at a lot of things  

  • The best way to grow your business and increase income is to become an expert at your ONE thing

Showcasing too many “things” can be distracting and confusing:

  • When followers are searching for a stylist with specific skills, they want to see that you are the “go-to” person

  • Too much personal life on your business Instagram is confusing

  • Open a separate page for business and for personal (it’s super easy to toggle between multiple accounts now)

Lack of CONFIDENCE:

  • Will lead to frustration

  • Will kill your earning potential

  • This is the #1 reason most hair stylists leave the industry within the first 5 years (don’t be one of them!)

HYPER FOCUSED Strategy  = POWER:

  • Gain authority and leadership in the space you are an expert in

  • Maintain the best review scores by keeping your area of mastery

  • More social proof > leads to more demand > leads to more income

DON’T be the “I do weddings sometimes” person
DO be the “go-to” wedding stylist

step-3

A simple plan for turning Instagram followers into paying wedding clients

“The type of content you share directly correlates with the type of people you will attract.”
– Instagram Expert
Alex Tooby

The Instagram strategy that works:

  • Focus: Choose ONE thing to focus on, on your Instagram account (even if you offer other services)

  • Posting frequency: at least once every other day while growing

  • Use descriptive hashtags between 1,000-200k + use your location in at least 10 + always use all 30 (#YourBrand hashtag in the caption and the others in the comments)

  • Provide value to your followers in your captions with the “STYLE formula”. Grab yours here

  • Give to get: Like and comment on non-followers that might be your ideal client + interact with your current followers

  • Use highlights and stories to feature and promote your services

  • Add your most recent client offer website url to your bio and add a “BOOK” button


 
 
 
step-4

The 5 touchpoints to maintaining your authority while working with a bride

contract
reviews

YOU must take (& keep) the lead during your time with your bride:

  1. Entry point: Social media, website, Thumbtack, ad or referral

  2. Inquiry: Email, DM, online booking, Thumbtack, phone call  

  3. Contract: + Deposit (authority)

  4. Trial run: Trust building

  5. Big day: Easy breezy bridechilla

Bonus: Testimonials!!!


 
 
 
step-5

My #1 trial run hack that will guarantee a happy bride EVERY time (even if they are a bridezilla)

 
updo
 

Step-by-step to winning over your bride EVERY time:

  • “Is there anything you don’t like or don’t want? Great, so today is going to be kind of a rough draft for the actual day. So I’ll be working a little more freehand and it may feel a little loose so that I can move things around to your liking or try other things, ok?”

  • Show them your progress in the mirror 3 times in this order (back, sides, front) and get their feedback along the way

  • Reassure them that on the day of, you’ll be using more pins and more product to ensure that the updo is perfect and secure

  • Take photos of the prep and of each angle of the final product (great for memory for day of AND extra content for social media!)

Do NOT create “the” perfect updo on the day of the trial - this will set them up for high expectations on the day of and as you all know...creating the exact same updo is not entirely possible (as brides may think).
