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!

Lots of Broken Nails? Educate Your Clients on Nail Care

Do your regular clients come in for their manicures complaining of their nails breaking in between services? (I am definitely guilty of this!) Well, nail care goes way beyond the salon and it is important for you to inform them on how to properly take care of their nails outside of their regular manicure services. By educating them and offering products/items they can use at home, you will find yourself with a lot more happier clients that keep coming back!

Some tips for preventing nail breakage:

  • We all know biting our nails is just a bad habit, but it is also very detrimental to your nails! It leaves the nails thin and weak and they are more likely to get caught on other surfaces and break due to the jagged and uneven edges. When informing your clients of this, offer to apply nail art, which will discourage them for wanting to bite off the fun designs! =)
  • Make sure to keep your retail area stocked full of buffers and fine-grain grit files for your clients to use at home. In between services, your clients nails are going to grow and nails grow unevenly and can cause weakness in some spots. Remember to let them know to file in ONE direction. (filing in both directions will tear the nails)
  • Keeping the nails painted at all times, whether it regular polish, gel polish, or hard gel will keep the nails thicker, making it more resistant against breakage. Also, inform your clients to not pick at the polish or gel polish, as this will cause the nails to become weak.
  • Use nail strengthening treatments as a base coat or top coat!
  • Keep nails strong and hydrated with cuticle oil. use it during the services and suggest they use it at home every day as well. This is another item you’ll definitely want to keep fully stocked in your retail area. Quick and easy up-sell to your clients!
  • Constantly washing hands can dry them out. Let your client know to always apply lotions after they have washed their hands and to try and avoid getting their hands wet when doing dishes or cleaning. Its a great idea to retail the hand lotion you use on your clients during manicures and let them know they can purchase it as well!

With these simple tips, you are sure to see less and less nail breakage from your clients! =)

Increase Your Earnings at Your Massage Business by Retailing!

I have just recently found out that massage accounts for 70% of services provided at spas. 70% is a lot! Knowing that most of your spa clients come to the spa for massage services, we can use this information to increase your earnings! It is not common for massage therapists to retail to their clients, but it should be!

If you are using products that you know, love, and trust, then you should have no problem selling them to your clients. Some examples of items you can offer your clients are essential oils, Bio-Freeze, aromatherapy candles, hot/cold packs, lotions…the list can go on. Body care should definitely be part of your retail display along with the various skin care items.

A great way to inform your client of products that you can offer them is to use them in the services and educate the client on the use of the product as well. The more knowledgeable you are about your retail products, the easier it will be to offer to your clients, which leads to increased profits for your business!

Great Retail Items for Massage:
Essential Oils
Candles
Biofreeze
Boca Terry Robes
Hot & Cold Packs
