Fear of Success: Written by Kim Denton Owner/Salon Coach

Sometimes success can be the hardest thing for individuals. We always hear that “Only the strong survive”, but how do we get there? There is always someone or something that doesn’t want us to win and usually that is our own self, hence the saying, “We are our own worst enemies”.

So in today’s blog, lets chat about the “so called” LITTLE VOICES that talk to us between our left and right ears, and how we can manage them. First of all, it’s important to understand the subconscious part of our brain, the memory bank. The memory bank stores everything that ever happens to us, good and bad. It is an unquestioning servant that works day and night to make your behavior fit a pattern consistent with your emotionalized thoughts, hopes and desires. Whatever you plant there, good or bad, it will create. It manages all our comfort zones so it makes something different very uncomfortable making us feel tense and uneasy.

So how are we supposed to manage and grow this part of our mind? Just like everything else we exercise it. You must force yourself out of your comfort zone and keep doing it until it becomes comfortable!

Your subconscious voice will always remind you of events that went wrong, that you’re not good enough, you can’t do it so don’t waste your time or yada, yada, yada… You get the picture right?

Steps to Win Over These Nasty Little Voices

  1. Celebrate all the small and big wins! Ball your hand in a fist and say “YEAH!” really loud or high five a friend and share your success with them. Remember your friends should support you in in everything you do so they will want to celebrate with you too! Anchor that win!
  2. Tell that little voice to stop when you start hearing it speak! Remember who’s in charge: YOU!
  3. Remember to tell it to stop. It’s okay to lie to that little voice when you are hit with a curve ball. Be positive!
  4. Celebrate fear by being excited. Your brain doesn’t really know the difference between the two 🙂
  5. Debrief every day by reflecting on what worked. Highest energy wins. Remember that when your subconscious voice starts talking negatively, and tell it to stop!

In conclusion, remember that it’s important to grow in a relationship, business or personal goals. Never let that little voice destroy you. Tell it to stop and continue going on. Get comfortable and make it exciting! Reach for the unreachable while managing the little voice!

 

Haircolor confusion ….. What does it all mean? Written by Kim Denton Owner/Salon Coach

As a Boise hair salon stylist, the terms Ombre, Balayage, Sun Lights Ombre, Foils, and Highlights can often be confusing not only to professionals like myself but to many of our clients as well. Guy Tang said it best when he said “Call it for what it its.” As stylists, we are happy to #HashTag anything just to get our name out there but in doing so, we have caused quite a bit of confusion in the world of haircolor. Haircolor these days has been moving so fast over the past couple of years that sometimes it can be hard just to keep up and share as much information with our clients as possible. In respect to Guy Tang, we need to call it for what it is so that there is less confusion on both parts.

So let’s face it. Are we really taking the time to communicate with our clients or are we simply using #HashTags  just to get our name out there?

When it comes to looking at a picture for inspiration, it’s important to really study it. We all know that a darker level of hair cannot go platinum with a balayage! Balayage is a haircolor painting technique for a soft, subtle, natural look that resembles a young girl’s hair. It is used with a clay based lightener that will not swell, puff or bleed. However, it is NOT powerful enough to lift hair more than a couple of levels. Over time and with persistence it will lighten hair gradually but it always gives it a sun kissed look like you were hanging out in the sun at the beach.

Ombre is a term used for a lighter look on the ends. Usually the roots are shadowed meaning a darker shade than the natural level. This can be a dramatic look or a subtle look. The hair is usually back combed and the hair left out is foiled for a brighter result.

Sun Lights on the other hand, are a beautiful look for clients in between. This term consists of baby highlights on the top of the head followed with a ombre to brighten up the ends. Also, shading the root area can be done for a more dramatic look. Keep in mind that clients and stylists often both mistake this technique for Bayalage. *Remember this technique includes foils so you will get lighter results than the Balayage technique.

But more than anything, let’s face it… Sometimes a beautiful highlight is all a client needs to get the job done! So no matter what color technique you’re interested in trying, its best to consult with your Boise hair salon stylist. Happy coloring!
