Patch testing YAY or NAY?

Patch testing YAY or NAY?

Patch testing has always been a well discussed subject amongst therapists, educators and those wanting to start their venture into the beauty industry. 
Let's have at the options, pro's and con's so that you can decide what is best for you, your business and your clients.
Be yourself and know your worth!

Be yourself and know your worth!

It is human nature to compare ourselves to others, it’s part of our natural instinct and evolution to want to be wary of possible competition and to compete against any possible threats according to Darwin’s evolutionary theory.... “survival of the fittest”. 

But we don’t need those primal instincts anymore!

Christmas Countdown

Christmas Countdown

December is now just around the corner, which means that we are now heading towards Christmas at full throttle. Are you ready?

Whilst you may have given your Christmas shopping list some thought, how much consideration have you given to the wish lists of your clients? 

Christmas is big business for beauty salons, and you need to act quickly to make the most of this. The first thing that is likely to build up is the rate of bookings towards Christmas as people prepare for parties and the big day itself. They will be looking to get lashes, nails, waxing and tanning and your appointment diary will fill up fast (if it hasn't already). Make sure you are prepared for the Christmas rush by stocking up on treatment essentials, Christmas nail colours and plenty of glitter to make sure you can cater for all of your clients wishes.

When Christmas is on the horizon, treatments are not the only business that your salon can do. You are the perfect shopping destination for clients looking for gifts for mums, wives, sisters and daughters, so make the most of it!

Gift vouchers are an obvious place to start as these require very little outlay. You can offer them for particular treatments or for set amounts, so there is something to suit every bank balance.

You can also expand your retail offerings to cover everything from main gifts to stocking fillers. Sell individual items or package a few together to make your own gift sets at different price points. 

Christmas is the best time of the year to increase your retail sales without really trying, so get an eye-catching display set up and let your products sell themselves.

To get ready, stock up on all your essentials and gifts at www.flirties.co.uk or call 0845 022 22 33.

Planning Your Next Course

Planning Your Next Course

When people set up their business, they feel that the hard part is done, but one of the biggest mistakes in business is to stay still whilst others are moving forwards.

Training in your chosen treatments and opening your own room, salon or mobile business is a huge step and it is easy to get caught up in the day to day running of it. However, the beauty industry is one that is constantly evolving, and to remain successful, you need to grow with it.

The Spa Wars Effect

The Spa Wars Effect

Spa Wars is the latest reality offering from ITVBe, and it is certainly ruffling feathers in the beauty industry.

The premise of the show is to take three spas or salons and have each business owner sample the others to see who comes out on top. Whilst this should be showcasing the very best of what the industry has to offer, many professionals have some serious questions about what goes on.
