It’s that time of the year again — time to make a list of New Year’s resolutions. Whether you stick to every single one, or break them all in the first week (hey, no judgement here!), you already know how to improve yourself. But, wouldn’t it be great if you could make New Year’s resolutions for your clients? You know the ones — the client that wants to go from black box dye to silver in one sitting, or the one who always insists your prices are too high. Without further ado, we present to you the 15 New Year’s hair resolutions we WISH clients would make.

1. I will not use box dye.
