Vanessa Tucker joins HAIRDOTCOM to offer wellness expertise

We have some great news! HAIRDOTCOM has a new entry. Wellness expert, Vanessa Tucker, has just joined their education team. And we all need some wellbeing tips and advice right now, don’t we?

A former hairdresser herself, Vanessa is now a teacher, healer, artist and author, with a wealth of experience across the board in the wellness sector. She is the author of The Art of You and Auras: Awakening Awareness, creator of Happy Cards, founder of Walk Your Talk Retreats and co-founder of Women Weaving Change – a training school for modern medicine women. Her therapy practice, training courses, retreats and books offer a variety of ways to access healing, personal growth and spiritual evolution.

Vanessa has worked with the HAIRDOTCOM team to create their first wellness course, The Success Reset. Hosted on Zoom, on Monday 15th February at 10am, this specialist session for hairdressers is designed to help creative minds reset, take stock and embrace their careers with a refreshed energy; something that is essential for heading back to the salon post-lockdown. 

“I was a hairdresser for ten years before I moved into healing,” she says. “So I know the salon environment and am aware of how things can be done differently. It’s really important to bring wellbeing into hair as it’s such a unique role. Hairdressers get to touch people, make them feel relaxed, listen to them for hours and make them feel better about themselves – it’s very similar to being a therapist in a way.”

The Success Reset course

The Success Reset is the essential wellness course for hairdressers to influence and shape the salon environment, and to make it a valued place of connection for themselves, their team and their clients. Vanessa will help hairdressers and salon owners understand how they can support themselves, their staff, their clients and the wider world. Covid19 has provided the hair and beauty industry with extreme challenges – but also the opportunity to reshape who we want to be, how we want to work, restart everything.

”The face of salons is changing” says Vanessa. ”The pandemic has changed the industry forever and salons are increasingly going to become places of connection and a safe haven.”

Vanessa will teach you techniques for connection, relaxation and helping to alleviate stress, anxiety and depression. The techniques she teaches will not only help hairdressers, but will allow them to go on and support their clients with the same ideas. Areas that will be covered include environment, breathing techniques, colour therapies, movement and meditation, as well as the power of touch. Sounds interesting and much needed, to be fair.

“People have been in lockdown for almost a year, and many of them will have been alone all that time and not touched by anyone,” explains Vanessa. “The way that hairdressers work is quite special as you do get to touch people – not many people get to do that, even doctors. I will be teaching hairdressers how to activate the vagus nerve and work with it to calm the nervous system both for themselves, and for clients. The vagus nerve is the social nerve which enables and encourages empathy and connection with others, so it’s very important for hairdressers.”
