The importance of personal appearance in the beauty industry

Professional Image

It is very important to make sure that your personal presentation and hygiene is at the highest standard when working within a salon. Personal presentation as a hairdresser or beautician is very important as it is the first impression a client gets of you. If they don’t like the look of you, it is unlikely that they are going to feel comfortable and may not trust you to complete the treatments they require. Also if you do not trust the person who is going to be taking care of you on that particular day, chances are when they go to apply many of the exotic and expensive skin treatments they really won't be caring about your well-being. Your image is also supposed to reflect the industry (McCarthy, 2013, para 1).
