11 Organisation Tips For Perfectionists

It’s time to indulge your inner control freak and super-organise your salon…

1.  Ditch the paper

A recent study found businesses waste at least four hours a week sorting through paper. So ditch that dog-eared filing system and install a salon software device that will seamlessly colour-code, organise and streamline your entire day. Sigh…

3. File makeup

Neeeeat…

9. Be magnetic

Organise everything from makeup to daily reminders on a magnetic board. Simply attach magnets to the back of your clutter and pop the magnetic board in a pretty frame. Too easy!
