5 Easy Steps to Compelling Stylist Bios
Did you know that featuring compelling hairstylist bios on your salon’s website could potentially grow your clientele?
No hair appointment is the same, and every client’s experience with a stylist is one-of-a-kind. Depending on their needs and preferences, one stylist might suit them better than another. By having well-crafted employee biographies on your salon’s website, typically located on a “Team” or “About Us” page, you can add a personal touch to your business and provide prospective clients with a deeper understanding of who they are scheduling an appointment with. This also fosters trust and openness and benefits both the individual stylists and the salon as a whole.
Here are five easy ways to encourage your hair stylists to write their bios for your website if they need support (including a Freebie Stylist Bio Template):
Encouraging Stylists To Write Their Bios
Make it a requirement
Communicate to all stylists that creating a bio is a requirement for everyone. Explain why it's important for the company and how it can help showcase their skills and expertise, ultimately landing them new clients.
Provide a template
Give your stylists a template or guide for what to include in their bios, such as their title, area(s) of expertise, and education. This will ensure that all bios are consistent and professional.
While it's important to stick to a format, encourage your employees to inject some personality into their bios. Don't be shy about also including a fun fact or hobby.
Lead by example
Encourage the leaders in your salon to create their bios first publicly display them on the company website and social media channels. This will set a good example for other employees to follow.
Consider offering incentives such as a company lunch to stylists who create high-quality bios. This will give them a tangible reward for their efforts and encourage others to get on board.
