Looking for the Trendiest Service to Add to Your Waxing Menu?

Waxing is huge, and that doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon. Another huge trend are tattoos! What do they have in common? Tattoo waxing, of course!

I know, I know…..but hear me out!

Waxing is a great prep for tattoo application, but there is a new sought-after waxing trend that will begin gaining popularity. Add it to your service menu now to get ahead of your competition!

Why wax tattoos? According to Skin, Inc. (https://www.skininc.com/treatments/hairremoval/Wax-That-Tatt-505569081.html), 40% of millennials have tattoos, women are more likely to be tattooed than men, and the tattoo industry is a $3 billion dollar industry. What does this mean? Your clients are most likely tattooed, and will most likely be happy for you to offer them a new service they didn’t even know they needed!

What does tattoo waxing do? Although traditionally, waxing is for hair removal, using a hard wax will also remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Dead skin cells can make a tattoo look faded, so waxing can reveal a brighter, revived looking tattoo! A word of caution, though – make sure the tattoo is FULLY healed prior to waxing over it!

Looking for a great wax for tattoo waxing? Look no further than Cirepil’s newest wax, Boudoir. This innovative wax is hypoallergenic, ideal for sensitive and fragile skin. They recommend this wax for tattoo preparation, after-care, and maintenance!

We sell a ton of nail brushes everyday, but for some reason this particular nail brush was super popular! Perhaps it’s the cool, easy to use translucent handle. Or maybe it’s the quality of the bristles. I bought one for myself and I gotta tell ya – it works pretty darn good!… why? I have no idea… I’m just a shipping guy!

How to Boost Your First Impression for Under $115!

One of my favorite quotes of all times is from Will Rogers: “You will never get a second chance to make a first impression.”

Wow – how powerful! This is so true in our industry – an industry based around aesthetics. What is the first impression your clients get when they walk in your room? Is it cozy, comfortable, cluttered, minimalistic, stressful? You will never get those first few moments back, so it is important to really deliver the WOW factor.

How do you deliver the WOW factor, you ask? As they say, the devil is in the details. Small touches here and there will go a long way – and they don’t have to break the bank, either!

One of my favorite ways to up the WOW factor is to display things in a unique, yet aesthetic manner. Pure Spa Direct just added new Apothecary Jars that can help you do just that! Show off your favorite salts, herbs, or even muds! These adorable jars are available in a variety of sizes, perfect for keeping various products on display.

Do you make your own body scrubs or salts for your clients? These are the ideal jars to package them in for sale, as well! With their own petite scoop that conveniently attaches to the side of the jar, and the cork-style caps, these jars look like they came straight from the apothecary! Add a simple ribbon with a tag featuring your logo and information about the product, and you have a winning retail product on our hands!

What are your favorite ways to use apothecary jars?

Facial Massage? Yes, please!

Lately, I have had a lot of inquiries on facial massage products! The recommendations differ based on the client. Some clients like oil, while some like a very light cream that is not absorbed into the skin.

Here are my suggestions with the best reviews-

Bon Vital – Spa Facial Therapy Massage Crème

This crème contains an anti-aging complex to help restore and maintain skin9s youthful appearance. It9s pH balanced, non-comedogenic, and has a luxuriously smooth and whipped texture that provides the perfect amount of glide.

No nut oils. Unscented. Paraben-free.

ESS Facial Massage Oil – Anti-Aging

Intensely moisturizing, it helps replenish the effects of the external environment or premature aging due to overexposure to the sun.

It contains a blend of essential oils in a base blend of borage, apricot kernel, sweet almond, and jojoba, a beautiful carrier blend to enhance the facial treatment oils. The combination of these oils supplies vital vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids to support and add nourishment to the skin.

The Anti-Aging Face Treatment is a regenerating, revitalizing face treatment oil that pays attention to areas of damage and aging, softening and refining fine lines and wrinkles.

Do you have any feedback? Let us know! We love to hear what is working or not working for our clients!

Time to Shine

It’s no secret that dip systems have become increasingly popular in the beauty industry this year!

Why do people love them?

Dip Powders are faster to apply and don’t have an odor. They leave the nail bed healthy and undamaged. Dip Powders are more durable than gel polish and just as durable as acrylics and can come in any color, with glitters and other color effects.

Lately, I have heard from some technicians who love using the dip system! However, their clients are asking for a shiny finish. So what do they do for those clients?

Chisel has got you covered. They have come out with the Black Diamond Line that can be used with Dipping Powder and cured under a UV/LED Light. All you need is a top coat and base coat to achieve the look your client is requesting.

Chisel Liquid – Black Diamond Base Gel

Benefits:

  • Achieve a gel-like look
  • Dipping powder manicure lasts longer
  • Apply base gel & cure under UV/LED light for 30 seconds

Simply apply top gel & cure under UV/LED light for 60 seconds.

Wax Spotlight: White Chocolate for the WIN!

One of our favorite things here is to test out all the amazing waxes from around the world that Pure Spa Direct carries. We often participate in training led by our resident Esthetician and Waxer, Erica, so we can make solid recommendations to our clients, and provide personal feedback when our clients want to know what we know! 🙂

Most recently, we tested the increasingly popular White Chocolate Film Wax from ItalWax – and we are absolutely intoxicated with this wax! First, our office was filled with a delicious Vanilla/White Chocolate scent, which only added to our excitement. From the very first stir, we understood why our clients can’t keep their hands off this wax. It is a beautifully creamy consistency and melted smooth and quickly.

White Chocolate spreads beautifully as well – it applies thinly and evenly, allowing you to get the most out of each strip. But that is not the best part! This wax was strong yet gentle, picking up short stubble as well as soft fine hairs with ease! There was no tweezing necessary with this wax – effective for so many different hair types.

Advantages of ItalWax Film Wax:

  • Lower melting temperature 104°F – 115°.
  • Ideal for hair removal on delicate areas (armpits, bikini, face).
  • Longer cooling time, which provides longer thermal exposure, relaxes hair follicles and makes waxing less painful.
  • Completely adjustable to the skin surface, catching all the hairs without applications repeating.
  • Because of it9s extra elasticity Film Wax won’t break during hair removal.
  • When removed, Film Wax does not leave any broken hairs.
  • Significantly reduces the time required for depilation procedure.

Depilation Procedure for ItalWax Film Wax:

  1. Pour the ItalWax Natural beads in the professional wax heater.
  2. Preheat the wax to 104°F – 115°F until it reaches the consistency of stiff honey.
  3. Treat the depilation area with an spirit-containing lotion ItalWax to degrease the skin and remove any traces of cosmetic products.
  4. Apply a small amount of cosmetic talc.
  5. With a spatula, apply a thin layer of wax, regardless the direction of hair growth, but towards you, leaving a small “petal” which will be used as a grip later on. ATTENTION! Do not rush during the application, press the spatula firmly, putting the necessary pressure on it.
  6. The wax will harden in 4-10 seconds. During this period it will stick to all the hairs. Ready to be removed Film Wax should not stick to the hand when touched.
  7. Holding the skin taut in the direction opposite to the tear-off, remove the wax with a fast movement, parallel to the skin.
  8. Repeat same actions in the next area.
  9. When the procedure is over, treat the skin with a soothing, cooling, oil-free product by ItalWax.
