Under a Stay at Home Order? Ideas For Boosting Business Anyway!

With nearly half of all Americans under mandated “Stay at Home” orders due to the current 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, many spas and salons are closed or seeing decreased appointments. Almost everyone in our industry is being affected by this pandemic, in one way or another.

I have been speaking with clients this week, and everyone is looking for the same thing – a way to get through this unusual situation with not only their health but their mental health AND their businesses intact and ready to move forward. But how?

While the world is worrying, we have been thinking – and I have heard some amazing ideas! As a community member, I know I am looking for ways to support the local businesses in my community, and I bet many of your clients are looking to do the same. Why not offer them ways to do so, while abiding by these “Stay at Home” mandates and the social distancing practices our government is advising?

Looking for some ideas? I have included some of my favorites below, but if you have others, I would love to hear about them!

Gift Certificates
Selling gift certificates for services is a great way to bring in some revenue now, while not needing to actually perform the services now. Utilize your social media, website, and even local neighborhood apps and sites to advertise Gift Certificate specials! Maybe you want to include a free add-on service with every Gift Certificate sold, or run a “Buy One, Get One” type deal. No matter what offer you include when selling your Gift Certificates, remind your clients that you are a small business, and just want to ensure they are safe, happy, and healthy – both now and in the future!

At-Home Hair Color Kits
I have spoken with a number of hair salons who are mixing up At-Home Color Kits to sell to their clients. We have probably all seen the funny memes about how few selfies are being posted, now that the salons are all closed. And funny as they may be, your clients are probably worrying about the state of their hair color during this stressful time. Instead of your clients turning to Target or CVS for their hair color, have them come to you! Creating do-it-yourself kits, especially mixed for THEIR hair color, will be a welcome luxury your clients will love! And they will remember who thought of them (and their roots!) when this is all over. PLUS, you won’t have a “boxed-hair color mess” to have to fix when the country is back up and running again!

Breathe and Relax Kits
Don’t get me wrong – this is a stressful time for all of us. But even if you can’t provide a relaxing massage or reflexology appointment, you CAN helps your clients take a few minutes for themselves to Breathe and Relax. Including aromatherapy favorites like essential oils, client comfort items, such as herbal neck wraps, or even sheet masks your clients can do at home, these kits will be a hit with your clients, providing them with a few minutes of stress relief.

Polish, Gel, and Dip Powder Removal Kits
Believe me, I understand that gel or dip powder removal at home is less than ideal, but so is allowing your clients to either unsafely remove these products, or (possibly worse) not remove these products from their nails for extended periods of time at all. Offering your clients effective products to remove their nail enhancements – and maybe a coupon for reapplication once open again – will be a welcome (and safer) option for your clients…not to mention a way for your business to bring in some revenue!

Harness the power of social media, and put together some kits for your clients! They will thank you now and remember you later for it. What other kit ideas have you thought of?

Everyone at Pure Spa Direct hopes you are staying safe and healthy!

Aahhhh Spa-Cation!

It’s no secret people are being a bit more frugal with their money than in the past. The term “stay-cation” is used much more frequently than ever before. This shift in how people spend their vacation money and time is a good opportunity for local spas to bring in new clients.

I recently read an article that featured a prominent spa in New York City that has been cashing in on spa-cations which have been very popular with locals.

The beauty of a package like this is that you can create it any way you see best. You can have build your own package from different options or you can have pre-set options or even multiple levels to them.

For example, you could put together something like this:

*60 minute massage or facial
*15 minute addition of the client’s choice of add-ons (scalp massage, more massage time, paraffin etc)
*special lunch (if you have the capability or a place you can work with to provide food)
*gift certificate for future use

Depending on the services you offer, you can create magical packages to entice and wow clients looking to stay local yet indulge more than their usual.

How Does an Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber work?

Ultrasonic skin spatulas have been a popular facial device for decades! It features vibrations of up to 30,000 Hz, which “jiggles” impurities from the pores as it exfoliates the surface of the skin.

It’s also used to make your favorite skincare serums penetrate the skin more deeply for maximum absorption and effectiveness.

It’s effective in treating the following skin issues:

  • Clogged Pores
  • Excess Oil
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Dull skin tone
  • Uneven texture
  • Congested skin
This attractive handheld Cordless SuperSonic Scrubber offers a combination of three powerful skincare technologies: Ultrasonic, Sonophoresis, and Ionophoresis. It’s a phenomenal multifunctional device that can be used for peeling, extractions, product penetration, and much more.
Used with different serums, liquid vitamins, and cosmeceuticals, it can effectively address numerous skincare problems: wrinkles, acne, aging spots, discoloration, blemishes, sun damage, acne, and chickenpox scars, freckles and melasma, and more.
Want to see how it works?
If you don’t already use this Scrubber, I highly suggest it. After only 2 treatments, it will be paid for and it is pure profit and pure results from there!

It’s a Sticky Situation… I’m Talkin’ About Strapless Disposable Slippers for Sunless Tanning!

Part of any good spa/salon service is exceeding the comforts and expectations of your clients. For me, it is all about the details. The little things. Details that make your clients’ experience memorable and improve the quality of your services. Each service has it’s nuances, and Spray Tanning is no different.

For this wildly popular service, one of the often over looked details is the bottoms of your clients’ feet. When you perform a spray tan, some of the fine mist falls on the floor, towel, mat, wet room tile, pop-up tent floor, etc. where your client stands. During your service, you typically have the client change positions so that you can get complete even coverage with the spray tan. When the client re-positions, they move their feet. In doing so, the bottoms of their feet come in to contact with the tan mist that settled below. When this happens, the BOTTOMS of their feet start to tan. Feet bottoms are not a place we want to be tan… it is not natural looking and is a dead give away for a sunless tan. To make matters worse, the bottoms of the feet have thick dead skin — an abundance of keratin in one location and sunless tanning products tan those areas the darkest.

Normal spa footwear has covered toes or a strap — not an attractive tan line! But there is a solution! Strapless Disposable Slippers, or Sticky Feet as they are often called, are a thin foam slipper bottom that includes non-slip tread on once side and a medical grade sticky adhesive on the other. Peel the backing off, stick ’em on and voila – slippers that prevent tan feet bottoms!

Pure Spa Direct offers them in a variety of colors both as open stock (order a few and try them) and in bulk boxes of 500 pair. Order them and improve the service experience and results for your clients. They work great with airbush tanning, HVLP tanning, lotion tanning and aerosol tanning. Remember, it is the memorable details that set you apart for your competitors!
