Circle time is everyone’s favourite time of the day – We take our drinks and sit in a circle by candle light and discuss what may be holding us back, our wins, what we’re proud of and how to reach our goals. In Norfolk we took blankets and sat around the fire pit.
Most of our guests have said that ‘circle time bought them the most clarity’ it’s an amazing way for all the stylists to support each other, lean in and step up in their business and I personally think it’s essential for growth. We should all do it in our teams and salons!
Other days in Ibiza included visiting the Hippy market and dancing until 4am, a day trip to the beautiful Formentera for a photography and braid workshop on the beach.
Along with all this nurturing, I also think it’s important to conquer some fears or try something new – In Ibiza we go paddle boarding in the sea and in Norfolk, wild swimming!
It’s exhilarating to step outside our comfort zone, especially when we are feeling fearful in other areas. It’s important for us to be brave, but also to let others support us.
Why is yoga so great for stylists?
It’s a chance for working stylists to take some time out and look after their bodies. So many of us struggle with burn out, anxiety and bad backs, practising yoga, even for this short amount of time can truly help as an anecdote to all of those things.
The yoga postures are designed for hair stylist to release the muscles around their shoulders and arms from tensions of working all day,
They use restorative and opening poses that enhance well being and mood.
I think self care in our industry is essential to allowing us to continue working as long as we wish to.

Bespoke salon retreats – POA
We run retreats for salons or groups and can bespoke the activities to reflect the salons requirements and core values, but essentially…a Lovehair retreat is a great place for the salon to become a team again, To feel excited about their new skills and go back to work more motivated and with a new energy and love for their job as well as mutual respect for their peers
“As soon as i saw Jo’s post about the New Ibiza Retreat..I knew I HAD to go!
With one space left, that was it, i was all booked and I’d figure it out later!!
Wow, i definately wasn’t disappointed!
It’s honestly been one of the best trips I’ve ever done (and I’ve been lucky enough to do a few solo trips too!) Of course feeling a little anxious the night before, going into the unknown, but within 24 hours everyone was so comfortable with each other! Jo made the vibe so fun and relaxed and suddenly before we knew it we were part of this awesome little tribe with no judgement, just happy friendly faces all in it for the same reasons! We had the perfect balance of self care, yoga and mindful mornings along with awesome hair skills and a social media workshop! We spent a few evenings having ‘circle time’ which was so special. A really lovely chance to get to know everyone and also open up and be honest in a very caring and supportive space.
Anndddd ….don’t get me started on the surprise by Jo with the singing mermaids…it was one of those moments in time I’ll never forget. Just Amazing!! Followed by a villa party! I mean how cool is that!
Jo is such a special soul and I felt so lucky to be a part of this awesome trip!
I came away feeling so refreshed, so inspired and actually quite proud of how far I had come. Not just that but also blessed to have a whole new group of friends! We are already planning meet ups!!
Thank you Jo for all your hard work and planning to make it a trip to remember!!”
