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.

Making Brows Into An Art

Making Brows Into An Art

Everywhere you look, brows are a big topic. Whether it is the new trends of plaited or wobbly brows, the Cara Delevingne full brow, or a pencil thin arch, everyone has a different style.

From young to old, most salon clients are now concerned with how their brows look and are turning to professionals for help. Whilst your skills may be able to make them look just the way they like, they may struggle to recreate the look at home.

The Flirties Brow Palette is the perfect solution as it is not only a great salon tool but also a wonderful retail item. Available in five different shades, the palette includes a highlighter, brow wax and two highly pigmented brow powder colours.

This amazing item helps to get your clients brows looking perfect, wherever they are. Buy yours at www.flirties.co.uk/collections/brows/products/brow-palette.
