Crystalize your state of mind
These are the emotions we want to feel when we enter a space that is vulnerable and new. Being a salon owner my number one priority is to give my guests the best experience possible. The last thing any hairdresser would want is for their guest to feel frazzled, stressed, or anxious before, during, or after the service. Our sole intention is to deliver excellence to the best of our ability. We want to please. We want to elevate the mood of our guests and leave them feeling more empowered and beautiful than when they first sat down with us--both mentally and physically.
We do great hair, but we also have the power to effect a human's state of being.
I've never met anyone who would want the person in their presence to feel worse or hate their hair more. We are mos def not in the business of making people feel bad about themselves...or to make them feel ugly. Nope.
So, how can we ensure that from the moment any person walks through our threshold that they feel the good juju? Mother nature's perfect gift: crystals. (Well...this among many other things we will get to in another blog :)
I had the chance to sit down with Logan and Joel from Ways to Wellness in Midland, Michigan to talk all about the best gems to enhance to good vibes in the salon. Check out these pointers to get started and attract all the good good.
The crystal starter guide
Green Aventurine and Citrine are perfect to sit next to your cash register to attract abundance in the form of wealth and opportunity. Think about all the big plans you have for your business, the dreams that you see in the future. These will help with your manifesting.
The best place to put Black Tourmaline in your space is by any threshold. If you have a main doorway that people walk through, sit it near the entrance. This will create a barrier and protect from negative energies. This cool stone transmutes negative energies of all kinds (including thoughts) into positive energies. What is awesome is that many hot tool companies in the beauty industry have incorporated tourmaline crystals into their hair driers, curling irons, flat irons, and brushes! It keeps an electric charge, as it is pyroelectric ( it generates electricity when heated), as well as piezoelectric ( it can store an electrical charge), causing it to release negative ions---a.k.a it's awesome for you hair's health :)
Amethyst is one of my favorites! It is just so pretty and let's be honest, how can you be a negative Nancy marveling in it's presence?? Sprinkle this gorgeous stone around your space to stimulate and soothe the mind. Just being around amethyst makes you feel like you are swimming in tranquility.
A great way to incorporate Tibetan Quartz into your salon is to put a piece in each corner of the space. It will create an OM vibration in the room. This is the highest vibration created: it means love, eternity, purity, peace. Who wouldn't want that vibe radiating all around!
These are just a few ways you can start to raise your vibration in your salon. I would suggest if you're interested in other ways to get your good vibes on visit your local crystal shop. Or, hey! If you're ever in Midland, MI at my salon, LUX the Salon, check out my hometown favorite Ways to Wellness . The best way to see what else you might need in your space, your pocket, or just adorn on your body, is to go browse and see what you are drawn to.
