Our team at Premier Beauty recommends that stylists focus on a healthy lunch, proper footwear, and a relaxing bath at the end of the day to stay healthy.
Being a stylist is an incredible career. You get to be creative, work with your hands, and you can meet some amazing people. However, it’s easy to get lost in the job and forget about your body’s basic needs. It’s important to maintain and take care of your body while you’re on the job so you can keep doing what you love. This includes taking time to relax and destress
. Premier has compiled a few common ways you can adjust the way you cut hair so you can stay active, limber, and comfortable all day in the salon.
Lunch is a fantastic part of the day. It's the perfect time to sit back, relax, and re-energize. UNITE’s stylish lunch bag
holds everything you need for a healthy, hearty lunch, along with a few snacks to sneak before and after lunchtime rolls around. If you find yourself hungry throughout the day, try packing your new lunch bag with a few high-protein items such as nuts, greek yogurt, or some homemade energy bites
. That way, you’ll be able to focus on doing what you love without having to worry about your stomach complaining.
It may not come as a surprise that the shoes you wear matter
. As a stylist, you’re constantly moving on your feet. It’s important to choose the right shoe to keep your feet comfortable and to preserve your flexibility and minimize joint pain. That means getting shoes that are comfortable and supportive. If you have high arches, you might benefit from a shoe with a lot of arch support. If you have flat-footed feet, you should use a shoe that has a reinforced heel. If you find that your heels frequently hurt, you should look into shoes with a decent amount of cushioning. You can determine the best type of shoe for you with the help of a professional shoe store such as The Walking Company
or Dick’s Pond
, where they will custom fit your perfect kicks for your day to day wear. Most importantly, you should take the time and try on the shoe to decide if the fit is right for you.
After a long day, you’ll probably want to hit the shower before bed. When was the last time you took the night to sit in a relaxing bath with aromatherapeutic scents? Taking the occasional bath can have various health benefits, including lowering your blood pressure and relaxing the muscles. Plus, there’s an added bonus of giving your feet a break while you lay back in the tub. Add a bath bomb to the mix to elevate your experience. A great option Hemp Beauty’s Large Bath Bomb
. This bath bomb soothes the body from head to toe with inflammation-reducing ingredients such as coconut oil, wintergreen, and peppermint. As a result, your muscles will be loose and you’ll be ready to get a great night’s sleep.
Self-care is an important part, if not the most important part, of anyone’s routine but especially the hard-working beauty professionals. Just scheduling out a small portion of time to take care of your needs helps a ton in the long run and will keep you feeling motivated and energized throughout your long workdays.
