The Power of Giving Back
Working in the beauty industry, you play an important role in the community. Not only do you provide your clients with the services that they want, but you also give them an opportunity to connect with someone and communicate with them. Many times, you are not just a hairstylist or a barber. You also are a friend, a confidant, a trusted advisor. You provide the community with an essential service, and it’s always a good idea to give back to the community when you have a chance.
Recently, the hairstylists and barbers from Artistic Nails & Beauty Academy gave haircuts at a local homeless shelter. In addition, they collected food, blankets, and personal care items to donate to the shelter. This event is just one way that Artistic Nails & Beauty Academy routinely gives back to the community that it serves. Here are a few reasons why we feel it’s important to give back:
Community Services Promote a Team Environment
When individuals who are part of an organization work together for the greater good, they feel more like a united team, rather than a bunch of separate people striving to meet personal goals. This sense of camaraderie and dedication extends beyond the immediate circumstances and stays with the group long after they have completed their community service project.
Giving Back Shows Your Dedication to Your Community
Professionals who want to succeed in a given neighborhood or city need to prove to their clientele that they aren’t just in it for the money. They need to showcase their commitment to the area around them and give back to the people who make the community what it is.
Donating Goods and Services Helps Individuals Feel More Connected with the People They Serve
Community service projects help get people out of their place of employment or their educational facility, and into the community they serve. It gives them a chance to meet new people, to learn their stories and to understand their unique perspective. It allows them to develop a personal connection that will stand the test of time.
At Artistic Nails & Beauty Academy, we strive to train the next generation of hair stylists, barbers, skin care professionals, nail technicians and massage therapists. Our goal is not only to create highly-qualified professionals but also entrepreneurs who understand the value and importance of community.
