Lovehair Retreats

Ibiza & UK

Wellness + business retreats for hairstylists

Grow your confidence with like minded creatives & all the the good vibes

about the retreats

Come home to yourself

As stylists, we work on our feet all day, making others happy, acting as therapists for our clients, in addition to showing up, being creative & precise… oh, and don’t forget the smile!

Throw in the everyday demands of family, friends, and simple acts of self care, and it’s no wonder that hair stylists are prone to exhaustion, overwhelm and even illness. 

I’ve experienced this kind of burn out, and can say with confidence that there is a way to re-invigorate, re-organize and uplevel yourself as well as your business!

It’s my mission with Lovehair retreats to untangle you from the demands of your life and business, to give you space to work on your business instead of in it, and the guidance and tools you need to grow yourself as an individual, and a hard working boss!

Since becoming a life coach, I’ve learned that business growth only comes after personal growth.

You deserve it!

Join the waitlist

Step away from the monotony and join me, and a group of passionate stylists much like yourself, for a week of self exploration, business development and some freaking fun! 

about the ibiza Retreat

The place to be

Our Ibiza retreat has all the headiness and fun you'd expect from a trip to the white isle

We tap into both the party side of the island, as well as the chilled hippie vibes that make Ibiza such a picturesque and unique destination. 

Our days in Ibiza include visiting the Hippy market, dancing the night away, and a day trip to the beautiful Formentera, one of the most picturesque locations in Ibiza, for a photography and braid workshop on the beach. Utter bliss

where do I sign up?

As stylist we work on our feet all day, making others happy, acting as therapists to our clients as well as showing up, being creative and putting on a smile every day. 

It’s not uncommon to barely eat lunch or sit down, we come home late, eat what fills us up or what is closest rather than what our bodies need, then fit in our family or social life. Often putting our own needs last.
 Leaving us feeling exhausted, dissatisfied and often wondering if this is it!?

It's a known fact that hairstylists burn out, we feel pressured by our clients, our companies, social media and society to be a certain person. To please everyone and put their needs before our own.

But as we are not aligning with our true and authentic self, it is hard work! We never get to just be.

This can lead to exhaustion, imposter syndrome, low self worth, feelings of not being enough and a whole load of limiting beliefs. 

Add to that the everyday stress of running a business or a column and the mentally and physically draining pressures that, on days, can be a blow dry or a Whatsapp too much and you've got yourself burn out. 

Hairdressers give so much!

I've been there!

After researching what helps those struggling with burn out reduce the risk and how to recover, I ensured that each retreat counteracted the damaging effects of burnout and consisted of an engaging programme which includes, and is not limited too: 

The beautiful chemistry that you get from putting a group of likeminded souls together

 




⟶ Yoga

To stretch and strengthen

⟶ Silence

Daily rituals to allow time to come back to themselves

⟶ Journaling

An amazing tool for mindfulness, clarity and focus

⟶ Nutritious food

To nurture their bodies and soul

⟶ LAughter

The best medecine!

⟶ Business workshop

Covering branding, marketing & finding your niche

⟶ Confidence workshop

We have circle time each evening, either round the fire pit or on the deck where we share, support and listen. No judgement, no egos just as equals.

⟶ Circle time

Glass of fizz after dinner or a cuppa and check in. This may include meditation, games, visualisations and it's many people's favourite part of our retreats

⟶ Photography workshop

Because there are SO many beautiful things to get on the 'gram and increase participants confidence with their photos

⟶ Adventure

It's important to me that the guests experience the feeling you get when you overcome a fear or try something new and win, being cheered on by your tribe. In the UK we go wild swimming and paddle boarding. In Ibiza we paddle board on the sea.

⟶ Party nights

Yes, it's a yoga retreat but we love a party too and it's always good to let off some steam

Students are invited to freely attend any session they feel is suited to their individual needs.

⟶ Excursions

In Ibiza we include a day trip to Formenterra. In the UK we take a trip to a local beach to change the scene & connect with nature

⟶ Hair sessions

Hair styling workshops, In Ibiza we challenged the guests work in team and style the hair for mermaids for a photo shoot by the pool.

⟶ Social media workshop

Help and guidance from our social media expert

⟶ Creative workshop

As creatives, us hairdressers love 'making' so our retreats always include craft sessions, creating hair clips and brand boards, this was also very therapeutic

⟶ Treatments

Available throughout the week from massage to crystal healing

WHat our past guests said...

 I’ve really loved spending time with a like minded group of stylists and ive really enjoyed how we’ve focused on business only,because spending time thinking about this is often neglected and i felt like we are all equal, rather than doing hair and comparing our work! I’ve loved the group activities and everyone has been so nice.
I feel as though i have a bit more f a plan for my business and the support of everyone has really helped my confidence and given me the motivation to make lots of positive changes.
Already(and i’m still here as i write this!)I feel that it was worth the investment .
Thank you so much Jo for being such a role model and investing so much of yourself to help others.
Hope to see you again.


 Thank you Jo and Erica for nurturing me , building my confidence and giving me time out. You made me feel safe , comfortable and looked after,I think that all stylists would benefit from this retreat in such a giving industry. It is so important to give back to yourself too.
I have met amazing women , learnt and found clarity for my business ..plus had lots of laughs too! A real rest week. Thank you!

Each morning the guests are woken with a soft gong outside their door and asked to remain silent until breakfast. This allows reflection time and undoing of the hardwiring, because as stylists our natural instinct is to make small talk, to ask how people are, if they slept well etc.

At Lovehair I want to create a space where our guests can focus on how they feel before anyone else. I have found its important and hugely beneficial for mental health to check in with yourself before taking on the energy of others.

Kind words

Going on this retreat saved me & my business, not only did I meet the most beautiful, incredible and talented ladies, I’d learnt that we are all grappling with feelings of insecurity - regardless of how accomplished we maybe. 
Every bit of time was carefully planned and well thought of, which in truth makes it hard to give a best bit as I loved it all! But singing mermaids has to be the single most incredible thing I’ve ever experienced (being a red head I wanted to be the little mermaid when I was a child!).

Jo bought together the best souls that have continued to support each other over text or social media long after and hopefully for many years to come. 
Thanks to Jo’s retreat I left feeling, refreshed , more confident & more like my old self. Since then I have had the courage to put myself forward, I’ve won a award, become an educator, an ambassador for a brand and now an art director for an Art Team & much more to come. To Jo & the ladies I shared this experience with, I will be eternally grateful

Jos Ibiza retreat was the most magical and best experience I’ve ever had on a hair course!
Jo is such an amazing person and the experience she made for us in Ibiza was truly magical and one I’ll never forget !
For me the best bits was the whole trip from meeting the girls to circle chats live singing mermaids yoga fortmentera paddle boarding mambo sunsets and of course hair oh and abit of dancing on the table … it was just the best!

It gave me confidence made me feel like I’m not on my own and I made friends with like minded people in the industry it was the first time I didn’t feel judge and I could become myself again and it helped me discover what I needed to work on and what to let go of.


Everyone’s favourite time of the day!

circle time

We take our drinks, 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 take our blankets and sit around the fire pit.

Several of our past participants have said that ‘circle time brought them the most clarity.’ It’s an amazing way for us stylists to support each other, lean in and step up in our business! I personally think it’s essential for growth, and wish that it was standard practice for all teams and salons.

Growth is Just Beyond Your Comfort Zone

Set yourself free!



Along with all this nurturing, I also think it’s important to conquer some fears and try something new
— In Ibiza, we go paddle boarding in the sea, and in the Uk, wild swimming or paddle boarding if available.

It’s exhilarating to step outside our comfort zone, especially when feeling fearful in other areas.
I believe it's important to be brave, to prove to yourself that you are unstoppable, but nothing beats being cheered on by your tribe as they stand by and watch you conquer your fears!


nurture your body, mind & soul

Why is yoga so great for stylist?

Yoga provides an outlet for working stylists to take time out and look after their bodies. So many of us struggle with stress, anxiety, back pain and poor posture. Practising yoga, even for this short amount of time can truly help as an anecdote to all of those things.

The yoga poses we teach are designed for hair stylist to release the muscles around their shoulders and arms from tensions of working all day,

We use restorative and opening poses that enhance wellbeing and mood as well as to release tensions across the shoulders and lower back from standing all day

Yoga, back care and exercise is essential for keeping us fit and allowing us to continue working as long as we wish to.

• Yoga increases your flexibility

• Yoga helps you to build strength

• Yoga improves your posture

• Yoga helps to keep your joints healthy

• Yoga is a powerful mindfulness practice

• Yoga reduces stress

• Yoga lowers blood pressure

• Yoga helps you to make healthier life choices

• Yoga releases endorphins and boosts your mood

• Yoga helps you sleep better

10 benefits of yoga

Wow, I definitely 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 suprise 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!!

Join me as we step away, & discover just how powerful you really are!

"You can't stop the waves but you can learn to surf"

As a coach, I’ve realised the importance of removing
stylists from a learning or salon environment. That creating a safe & open space for them to truly relax and engage another part of their creativity would help them to tap into a side of themselves lost, due to the demands of work & life management.


Faq

How many spots are available?

Availability changes depending on retreat venue but we tend to stick to 12 - 16 guests per retreat

Is this retreat open to all genders?

We are super happy to welcome male, female and non binary guests but as accommodation is shared, we only have single sex rooms so there may be a single supplement.

If your retreat is in Ibiza, we will set up a Whatsapp group for those travelling from the UK and you can arrange taxi and transfers between you. We will help you with this too!
It’s VERY easy to travel in Ibiza as everywhere is 20-30 minutes away and taxi drivers speak English. I know travelling alone can be a little scary but we are here to support you and ensure you are safe - Please email if you are concerned about this and we will do our best to help you

At our Ibiza venue, you can buy a bottle of wine that will be labeled as yours and kept for each mea (If you haven’t drunk it on the first night!)
Wine or alcohol can also be bought locally
