Movember Is Here!

And in it’s peak at that! November is drawing to a close, but does your Spa celebrate the Movember movement? Not familiar? Movember, or No-Shave November, is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches and beards during the month of November to raise awareness of various cancers. I’m sure you see many of your male clients sporting new facial hair that they haven’t had all year to support this wonderful cause. It might be a great time to incorporate specials for your clients during this month!

Need some ideas? How about retail items to support their efforts such as Beard Oil, Conditioner, and even Moustace Wax? We carry Clubman products for men that would be amazing to have on your retail counter during this month. Check out some popular products below:



Clubman Beard Oil is super hydrating and provides a light shine. It also has Macadamia Seed Oil that conditions the beard and skin underneath, as well as prevents irritation due to new hair growth.



They even make beard conditioner! This conditioner by Clubman works as a moisturizer and conditioner for your clients who need extra hydration.








Do you have male clients who are living true to the Movember name, and only growing out a moustache? Make sure their ‘staches are perfectly groomed with our Clubman Moustache Wax!





How about offering your first time male clients a free shave once Movember is over? We have large selection of male grooming supplies. Be sure to check out all of our male grooming products here!

Summer is Almost Here!

Summer is fast approaching, creating good skin care habits early are essential to maintaining healthy skin. Educating your clients to Use sunscreen daily no matter the weather outside is an extremely important habit that should be preached to daily to all clients coming in for any skincare treatment. Consistent use of sunscreen helps slow down the development of wrinkles while maintaining an even skin tone. By wearing sunscreen every day, you are protecting yourself from UVA and UVB rays.


With so many options out there on the market, this should be an essential part of your client’s skincare routine. Visit Pure Spa Direct today to check out some great products we offer.

Pellon versus Muslin: What You Don’t Know May Be Hurting Clients

When helping clients place orders for waxing strips, the essential questions we always ask are, ‘Pellon or Muslin?’ and ‘Non-woven or woven?’ Unfortunately, so many hair removal technicians are not aware of the differences between the fabrics, so I am here to help enlighten you!

Muslin is the go-to woven fabric for waxing. It’s woven nature makes it the strongest waxing strip you can buy, but it is important to note that it can be too strong for certain areas. Muslin works well with eyebrows, lips and legs, however, I know all too well from personal experience that muslin is too aggressive to use on the bikini area, arms and underarms.
Pellon is, hands-down, the most popular fabric used for waxing strips. It is non-woven, so it pulls the hair out, but is significantly more forgiving than muslin. What makes Pellon tricky to use for certain waxing services is its lack of flexibility. Pellon has the same feeling as construction paper, so it is difficult to maneuver and form to the bendable areas, such as the Bikini area.

A happy medium between Muslin and Pellon is the Epillyss Cotton Waxing Roll. It has the flexibility of Pellon and a strong enough grip that will effectively remove hair without as much pain.
What types of products do you find to be most effective for depilatory services?

Important Mag Lamp Tips for Estheticians – How to Use with Care

Loose Mag Lamps
Can DROP on Clients…
Always Use Care &
Tighten Well!

Used for observing, extracting and assessing clients’ skin, the mag lamp is an essential tool in professional facials and aesthetics. I really enjoyed watching this Facial Equipment DVD by Rita Page. Not only informative, she really has some sound advice for Estheticians about cleanliness, lamp tightness and basic care. Lighted magnification lamps can get quite filthy due to the spray from facial extractions – not only can this obscure your view of the client’s skin, clients may notice the extraction debris on the lamp during a service… yuck! I always think it is important to brush up on the basics every once in a while, sometimes the obvious things can become overlooked in our busy lives. Rita is an award-winning CIDESCO Diplomat and her DVD’s are available on Pure Spa Direct for licensed professionals. Extremely informative and full of details for pros at all levels.

Here is a video clip from Rita Page’s Facial Equip DVD: Available for Purchase at Pure Spa Direct.

Waxing Retail Ideas

Waxing is huge right now! I speak to waxers every day, and have personal experience in the field as well! As a waxer, it is so important to educate your clients. For the amazing results, all client’s expect, there is some upkeep on their end. Are you educating your clients on how to get the best results AND how to maintain between services?

We have just added this amazing retail display by DIR. Take a look at Gems Retail Display Shelf with LED Illumination!

Available in white, black, or grey. It is modern and has neutral colors to fit your space. If you are worried about space, it would work in your treatment room as well! That way you can talk to your client about the maintenance and easily grab the products during or after the service!

Now, what to fill the shelves with! I’ve tried it all! Take a look at my top picks!

For Exfoliation

Regular skin exfoliation is the most important in any post waxing treatments! Scrubbing away the dead skin is vital. It clogs pores and causes ingrown hair.

Retail a simple pair of exfoliating gloves. They are inexpensive, need to be replaced often, and really work! This even makes a great free gift for your first-time clients.

Retail an effective body scrub, to help remove that dead skin and leave the skin feeling silky smooth! My pick is the Mancine Hot Salt Body Scrub – Lavender & Witch-Hazel.

It consists of marine extracts that have been blended with Australian Sea Salts then mixed with Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Soya Bean oil and fruit acids to form a deep, exfoliating body scrub to remove dry dead skin.

The perfect formulation of relaxing lavender with natural witch hazel cleanses, tones and cools the skin, with moisturizing herbal humectants acting to organically sooth and remove excess oil. Witch hazel calms skin blemishes and irritations whilst the lavender leaves your skin lightly fragranced – the perfect organic blend. Which is why it is my favorite!

Preventing Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown(zone) Triple Action Post-Depilatory Lotion

This is imported from Australia and is naturally formulated with active ingredients to reduce the appearance of ingrown hairs and bumps.

It slows and softens future hair growth, and is super moisturizing on the skin!

Client Comfort Items

We have so many options for items that can be used in service and make easy retail sales! My pick is the Kozi Shoulder Wrap!

This ultra soft shoulder wrap is designed to cover the contours of the neck and shoulders. Perfect for soothing tight, tired muscles, it will stay in place while your client walks, stands, or sits. Aromatherapy benefits are increased when it is heated in the microwave.

Just for Fun

Sheet masks, under eye masks, and lip masks are such a simple retail item. Celebrities are all over social media using them, and it is so trendy! Having these options not only give real results but are so fun!

Satin Smooth Serum Sheet Mask Display Box in Charcoal
This Sheet Mask Collection with six customized, serum-drenched facial masks. Display box contains
24 masks, each individually wrapped for single use. Great for salon, spa and home use. Dermatologist Tested.

The Charcoal Mask is enriched with activated charcoal to help clean and purify oily skin. It also contains niacinamide and acai berry extract, which can aid in balancing skin tone and refining pores for softer, smoother-looking skin.

Vichy Rain Shower – named after the famous hydrotherapy village in France, the Vichy Shower uses individual shower heads strategically positioned along your Chakra points to provide a soothing and calming warm water massage.

The Equipro Vichy Shower offers a great shower experience, every time. A Vichy Shower is a form of hydrotherapy and lets your clients get a warm luxurious shower while lying down on a wet table as part of a body treatment, such as a salt scrub, body mask, or body wrap.

When the water is turned on, it cascades over the entire length of your client’s body, then channels to your tiled wet room floor, where it drains away.

DETAILS:

  • 5 adjustable and independent jets
  • Hand shower head
  • Ergonomic design
