Why Salons Prefer Bleach Safe Towels

I think that some Salon / Spa owners overlook the importance of nice towels. I personally go to a high end salon that uses old, scratchy, cheap black salon towels with bleach stains ALL over them. Truth is, having this stiff, itchy towel wrapped around my neck for 2.5 hours during balayage is less than comfortable. And seeing such a beat up commodity as a client makes me feel like the owners just don’t care. (I feel the same way when they hand me a beat up old smock with a broken zipper — it’s like REALLY??!!)

Pure Spa Directs has a large variety of towels, but Salon & Spa buys prefer the ORIGINAL BleachSafe® towels for their quality, longevity and beauty. That’s because all BleachSafe towels are 100% premium cotton, long lasting, fast drying, softer & more absorbent than any other fade resistant towels, AND they are available in 13 vibrant colors.

BleachSafe® color towels are resistant to all bleaches and peroxides. Stains can be removed by laundering with hot water or chlorine bleach without fading or damaging the fabric. TOUGH STAINS, GERMS AND BACTERIA COME OUT, WHILE THE COLOR STAYS IN!

The difference is in their patent pending process which keeps BleachSafe towels looking fresher– longer. It’s NOT a coating, but in the actual fabric & will last for the life of the towel.

The best salons in the country choose Blu Sand BleachSafe towels. Upgrading your towels helps to upgrade your image. We strongly recommend Beach Safe!

Some of the best salons in the country prefer Bleach Safe, such as:
Arrojo Studio, Aveda Institutes, Bliss Salon, Bumble & Bumble, Carenza Color Cutting Group, Paul Labrecque, Canyon Ranch Spas, Christophe, Fred Segal Beauty, Four Season Resort & Spas, Gavert Atelier Beverly Hills

CND Shellac 14 day Manicures = Profits For Salons & Bliss for Customers – Review by Rebeca

Shellac is like any salon polish application, the Shellac system features a Base Coat, Color Coat and Top Coat. Together with a UV Lamp, the system comprises a breakthrough in resilient color that remains flawless for two weeks and removes in 10 minutes. This has to be the most revolutionary offering for natural nail customers! Many want to know what the difference is between Shellac and gel manicures. Well, the Shellac gel hybrid does not require as much prep work to the nail… the process is just like a natural nail manicure with the exception of a UV cure with each coat. Shellac also soaks off quicker that other nail services.

What does this mean for Salons? IMO — Shellac is a Gold Mine! Imagine being able to offer clients a nail polish that doesn’t smudge, peel, dent, knick, or even chip for 14 days! When I asked some local nail salon patrons how they would feel about being offered this type of service, their responses were frenzied. They did not even inquire about the price, they just wanted to know what salon has it and how fast they could get there… they all became possessed with excitement! This is a VERY desirable service, and CND has done a great job of getting press and media to deliver the news to consumers; “the 14 day manicure is here”. I am confident most women will find a Shellac manicure a staple service before vacations, holidays, meetings, weddings, reunions or any event in which they don’t want to worry about touching up their polish. I am personally looking forward to traveling WITHOUT a big bag of leaky nail polishes and remover (that ALWAYS leaks all over my suitcase). This used to be unavoidable, because Pre-Shellac, my manis & pedis never stayed in tact for any trip over 2 days!

About my Shellac French Manicure:
My CND Shellac French manicure was done with 2 colors, Negligee (a transparent pink with a very subtle iridescent) and Cream Puff (the opaque white used for the tips). Now, I have to admit that I was a bit bummed at how clear the Negligee appeared. I have on 2 coats in this photo. A white on white manicure is my preferred choice (1 coat Essie Waltz and 1 coat Essie Marshmallow was my signature). For now, there is a limited color selection currently available from CND Shellac (with more coming out in November 2010), so Negligee was my only option… though I think Shellac Romantique might make for a good alternative to give more opacity, (I will try next time).

Retail — Really — YOU need to retail CND Solar Oil!
So far, on day two of my Shellac French Manicure, I have no nicks, chips or scratches. Just INSANELY shiny and healthy natural nails! A VERY important step to keeping the Shellac manicure looking great, is to have your clients apply Solar Oil every day! Solar Oil contains a luxe blend of natural Rice Bran oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E Oil and Sweet Almond oil to help restore and repair nails and cuticles for a healthy looking manicure. In addition, the act of massaging Solar Oil into the nails daily actually stimulates nail growth while the natural oils condition brittle nails and cuticles. Every time Solar Oil is applied, it totally revives the beauty of any manicure! This is a great way to make sure your clients LOVE their manicure up to day 14 and it helps them nurture their natural nails. Click me to see the Solar Oil Retail Display.

Another great marketing benefit of CND Shellac it that there is absolutely no damage done to the natural nail. Shellac is also 3 Free. It is free of formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. I like to call Shellac “The Kind Manicure“; your nail bed does not need to be mutilated with a nail file or drill at anytime. No glues, bonds, primers or offensive smelling fluids are needed. CND Shellac polishes go on just like regular nail polishes, so there is no damage to your precious, natural nail.

Rev up your business and try the CND Shellac Starter Kit today! People WILL be calling your salon about it. Don’t be left out of the Shellac Revolution!

June Jacobs Hydrating Masque Review – Age Defying

In my 40’s, my skin has taken on multiple personalities. One day I am dripping oil, another it is dry, flaky and tight. I am always trying to find a product that can bring back the balance to my super sensitive skin without a breakout.

Packed with Potent
Anti-Oxidant & Moisture Rich
Ingredients to HUG skin.

Lately I have been using June Jacob’s Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Masque as a rescue treatment to help balance my skin beautifully.

So what makes this mask so special? Well it combines potent anti-oxidants like white, red and green tea extracts, goji berry, pomegranate and grapeseed to to neutralize free radicals and protect skin from environmental toxins that cause pre-mature aging..

What else sets this miracle mask apart?

Sterocare™ – A botanical complex composed of red clover extract and lecithin designed to improve the
thickness of the skin by compensating for the deprivation of estrogen as a result of menopause.

Red Clover Extract – Derived from the plant grown wild in Europe and North America, it is rich in isoflavones – biochanin, daidzein, formononetin and genistein, which protect by stimulating the production of skin9s structural components increasing firmness and elasticity.

Lecithin – Derived from a combination of naturally occurring phospholipids, found in wheat germ, grains and soybeans, it acts as a humectant to maintain the water content of the skin and attract moisture to the skin, helping to facilitate cell growth by lessening healing time and minimizing trans-epidermal water loss.

Kombuchka™ – I LOVE to drink Kombuchka! It is derived from the fermentation of sweet black tea, it is rich in organic acids and vitamin B, it improves overall skin quality and enhances skin radiance and color by restraining the “glycation” reaction allowing the skin to produce and use anti-oxidants.

Clients will LOVE
The way their skin
Looks & feels.

Dermolectine™ – A glycoprotein of plant origin with remarkable biological, “growth factor-like” properties. It stimulates fibroblasts providing a structural framework for elastin and collagen tissue to smooth wrinkles and help fight cutaneous aging.

Konjac Mannan – Also known as glucomannan, derived from the ground root of the tree which grows in southeast Africa and Asia, it acts as a humectant to maintain the water content of the skin and attract moisture to the skin creating volume in the skin9s appearance.

Sweet Almond Oil – Derived from almonds, it is rich in fatty acids, oleic and linoleic and vitamins A and E helping to soften and moisturize skin improving overall hydration.

This is an outstanding mask for ALL year treatment. It is available in professional size for esthetician back bar treatment and retail size, so clients can continue radiant looking skin at home.

Many Ways to WARM UP your SPA!

It’s one of those winters where everything feels cold! Keeping all things toasty and warm for clients is key, that’s why I want to talk about ALL THINGS WARM! If you type in the word “warmers” into our search box at purespadirect.com, you will find a great list of products, gadgets, blankets and equipment that can create warmer surroundings for clients. Lets take a look at some of the results.

Quilted Blankets are
Great for Style & Warmth

1) Towel Warmers! Whether you need to hold 12 hot towels or 360 – we have hundreds of models to
choose from.

2) Manicure Lotion & Oil Warmer. Cold lotion and cold oil = cold feelings. Keep things warm and fuzzy with help from these units.

3) Space Heaters & Humidifiers. Lets face it, there are some rooms in your spa that are too hot or too cold. Cold treatments are no fun. Warm up your space with a little heat, and add some humidity to overly hot and dry rooms.

4) “More Blankets Please!” I am one of those clients that is ALWAYS asking for more blankets. I am ALWAYS cold during a treatment. The worst is when a spa doesn’t have any, and I get a pile of towels laid over me. Spas, you need good quality spa bedding for clients. The BEST is when the therapist fires up a table warming blanket or places a thick, quilted blanket on me. Those are the spas I return to!

Jars for Estheticans – Quiet Storage is Facial Friendly

Keep Your Facial Room
Quiet & Serene.

I love my esthetician… BUT she gives the NOISIEST facials ever! She’s not a talker… she just happens to store most of her aesthetic supplies in noisy, glass sundry jars with stainless lids. Every time she reaches for gauze, cotton, lancets or finger cots during my facial, I am jarred out of a restful bliss by the deafening racket of the jars opening and closing all around me. Steel on glass is NOISY! It is the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard, it startles me so much I jump and flinch 2 inches off the facial bed! I don’t even think she realizes how much it takes away from the serenity of the treatment. So I was so excited to see these large 32 oz. jars come in. They are big enough for storing facial room essentials like alginate powders, gauze, cotton, lancets or finger cots and raw ingredients for masks and body treatments – just about anything you can think about. Best of all… they are QUIET!

Pure Spa sells several jar sizes that are ideal for your facial room needs!

Ahhh, quiet essentials. As my favorite lady from RHOBH, Adrienne Maloof once said, “Love is in the details!”. Pay attention to them, your clients do notice.
