Music To Your Ears – New Spa Music!

Are you getting tired of hearing the same music day to day, week to week regardless of how many times you rotate your collection? Have you checked in with your clients lately to get their thoughts on the music?

Personally, I get tired of hearing the same music over and over. I would change my cd’s almost obsessively. I also didn’t want my clients who were coming in a few times a week or weekly to get bored with it either.

Here are the newest additions that may just breathe new life not only to your music collection, but to the overall vibe in the area!

These cool little Pyrex glass balls have rubber handles for easy control while contouring the clients’ skin. My department ships these globes to spas and resorts every single day!

What Provides 900% Profit? Callus Removal Services!

As a nail technician, one of the most essential and most profitable add-on services you can offer to your clients is Callus Removal. Used to make the rough, hard skin on the feet softer and easier to remove, just a small amount of product goes a long way to ensuring client satisfaction and repeat business.

No matter whether it is sandal or sock season, your clients absolutely HATE the calluses and rough edges on their feet. The feeling goes beyond aesthetic reasons, as dry cracked do not feel comfortable scratching under sheets or in shoes. By offering this service to your clients, you are not only making a significant profit, but you are also helping your clients feel better.

So how does the Callus Remover work? The gels are formulated with ingredients such as salicylic acid, lactic acid, and alpha-hydroxy acids that, when left on the skin for 3-5 minutes, soften the callused and rough areas enough that the skin can be flaked off with a foot file. The gel accomplishes in a very small amount of time what all the pumice scrubbing and foot file sanding could probably never accomplish.

The tools for a successful service are Callus Remover or Eliminator, gloves, paraffin bags, and a pedicure rasp. After applying a thin layer of gel to only the callused areas, put the client’s foot a paraffin bag and have them put their foot back into the foot soak. The combination of the heat and the pressure from the water will help the gel penetrate more thoroughly. After a maximum of 7 minutes, remove the foot from the paraffin bag and use the rasp to flake off the dead skin. Its that simple!

Typically, salons charge between $5 – $10 for this add on service. With a treatment cost that can be as low as $1, which includes all of the recommended supplies, you can make a whopping 400% to 900% Profit per service! Your client will experience immediate gratification in the form of petal-soft feet and you can experience a significant boost to your bottom line!

Client Comfort: Eye Masks

It’s no secret client comfort is key. You’ve put time, money and thought into everything from the treatment tables to the aromatherapy choices in your space. It’s also no secret that it is the little things that can have a drastic impact on client satisfaction. Something seemingly small can be what makes a client stick with you over your competition and you may never even know.

While herbal eye masks are generally thought of as a comfort or “nice touch” to offer with services, for a person with light sensitivity or eye issues/discomfort, it can be a game changer. For less than a dollar, you can offer something like the Satin Eye Mask by Scalpmaster for a client to use during many different services (some you may not even think necessary to offer!) and you may just be taking the service to a level you never dreamed for that client. They may feel awkward or uncomfortable making a request for a “sleep mask” or not know it could be an option. You don’t even need to go into anything more than “would you like an eye mask for added comfort and relaxation?” to give them an option!

A Rude Receptionist Could Be Killing Business

As busy day spa and salon owners, we are concentrating on the bigger picture (expenses, overhead, staffing, stock and traffic. Yet, as the old saying goes, “The devil is in the details”.

Friendly or Frightening?
How is your receptionist
treating YOUR clients?

I don’t even know if the majority of spa and salon owners realize how the receptionist is truly treating walk-ins, appointment inquiries or phone calls from new clients with questions about services. I feel that most of us felt good about the person we hired for reception, trained them, and then moved on to running the show. But how often are spa and salon owners stopping to closely review how the receptionist is doing on an ongoing basis? We can never forget that the receptionist is the lifeblood of the business, and checking in often is critical.

I bring this topic up because there are several swanky beauty / spa businesses I frequent here on Long Island that I love… but I CRINGE to call or personally interact with their apathetic, incredibly irritable receptionists. It is so bad, it deters my desire for future appointments. When a receptionist is visibly or audibly irritated by an inquiry or request from a paying or potential client, it sends out the worst impression about the business and the talent under that roof that can not be easily reversed.

So what to do? I have my friends and family call my business randomly and act like a first time customer… running through the tedious first time client questions like pricing, stylist info., and scheduling to make sure the reception team answers happily, (like it’s the first time they ever answered those questions). I encourage my team to SMILE when they are on the phone with all clients, and in person. The client automatically feels better about her conversation, better about your business and better about making more appointments.

For some great in-depth tips on how to make your front desk work, check out this great article from Behind The Chair.
