it’s a really tough position to be in at this time. But you have unearthed an issue which will be affecting most households up and down NZ.
One solution is to shoot a few short (60 – 90 sec) hairdressing tutorials on a variety of topics, and to create usable hacks for parents struggling with this problem.
This could be done cost-effectively. You could shoot them on your phone and post them online to Facebook / Instagram.
Do you have a database of your current clients? If so, this is another avenue to explore and share these clips.
NZhairdressing.org.nz is the national body – perhaps get in contact with them and ask how they could help support your message.
Wish you all the best.
