About
The beauty industry has changed dramatically in the last 10 years. The days of hoping your good reputation and referrals was enough to grow or maintain your clientele died out and successful stylists today need a real marketing strategy. It's actually never been easier to grow a clientele as a hair stylist or a business as a salon owner, yet stylists are giving up or struggling more often than they are thriving in this incredible industry. When I was first building my clientele, I realized immediately that nobody was teaching true business skills and long term strategies to stylists or salon owners. What good is a license and an entrepreneurial passion without the skills and knowledge to actually make big things happen? The Thriving Stylist podcast is a collection of interviews from super successful but not yet famous stylists, one-on-one coaching opportunities and actionable, strategic marketing techniques that you can use in your business today to see real results. I'm Britt Seva, Social Media & Marketing Strategist for Hair Stylists and I look forward to helping you to create a wealthy life as a stylist.

Burnout is a pain point that a lot of us are going through, myself included, but to be honest I went back and forth on recording this episode.

#277 - How to Build a Salon You Can Sell

More often than not, when most salon owners decide that they no longer want to be an owner, they walk away and the salon just closes its doors. Or, maybe the salon owner transfers ownership to someone else, without receiving a massive financial payoff. What if there was another option though, and you could build a salon that you could sell when that time comes?  If you are building your empire to ultimately get a paycheck for it, then this is the episode for you. My hope is that you can use what I talk about today as a reference to crosscheck what you need to do to make selling your salon a very real possibility!  If you have a question for me that you’d like answered in a future episode, a great way to do that is to head over to Apple Podcasts and leave a rating and review with your question. I’m looking forward to answering your question on a future episode on the podcast. If you’re not already following us, @thethrivingstylist, what are you waiting for?

#270 - Pricing for the Market Shifts as a Hair Stylist

Last week on the podcast, I talked about all the different pricing structures that exist in the industry and how to know what’s best for you, and I want to continue the discussion. Today, I share about an emerging fourth pricing structure (which I am not a fan of, and you’ll hear why!), because I believe it needs to be talked about and a lot of people just aren’t discussing it.  Even though our industry is not easy to survive in and the turnover rate is high, you’re going to keep getting even stiffer competition, no matter how you slice it. Having clear messaging is so critical, and in this episode, I reveal how you can build your worth and perceived value as you navigate these market shifts in order to really stand out in the crowd!     If you have a question for me that you’d like answered in a future episode, a great way to do that is to head over to Apple Podcasts and leave a rating and review with your question.

#269 - Is Hourly Pricing the Future of Our Industry?

I’m excited this week to answer a question from one of my listeners, Kendra. She asked about my take on different pricing structures, as she’s seen a lot of stylists in the industry move towards hourly pricing. She’s wondering if hourly pricing is the future of the industry, and in this episode, I look at the pros and cons of this pricing structure, as well as other ones that are being used by stylists today.  When it comes to pricing, I believe that making an informed decision is the best advice I can give you, because there are successful stylists running all of these methods.

#051-An Interview with Angelina Caceres

I have a treat for you today, as I’m bringing you a Thriving Stylist Spotlight with my very own cousin, Angelina Caceres! Angelina joined the industry just a couple of years before I did and she was somebody that I very much looked up to as I was building my clientele. In this episode Angelina explains (very humbly I think!) how she became a salon owner so quickly in 2007, right when the recession hit, and how she didn’t let it slow her down. You’ll hear the way she grew her business over the years and the journey to now moving into a new and improved location in a building she’s purchased. What I love about this interview is that Angelina keeps it real. Sure she’s had tons of success, but she’s also had to overcome a lot of challenges. From learning how to lead to a team, to balancing motherhood with being a stylist and owner, you’re going to hear everything that she’s learned along the way.

#016-Thriving Stylist Spotlight - Callie McWhirter

Today I am bringing you another amazing Thriving Stylist Spotlight, and I’m talking to my friend Callie McWhirter. I met Callie almost two years ago through my Thrivers Society program that she joined as a brand new stylist (actually she was still in cosmetology school at the time)! Callie knew that she needed some kind of guidance as far as how to build a real strong clientele right from the start, and I feel so fortunate to have been with her through her entire professional journey. From the moment I met Callie in person at my most recent retreat, I knew she was something special. Today you’re going to hear how Callie was able to find her calling, and how she grew her clientele naturally while based in a small town in Texas. I knew Callie had a story that we had to share, so I’m really excited to have her here with us to tell it!
