Olaplex - Changing the WORLD of Hair Color - Never Break A Client's Hair Again

I abandoned Balayage years ago when my hair started breaking off 3 inches from my head. I was losing so much hair from breakage I had to carry a lint roller with me because my clothes were covered in broken hair bits... it was awful!

I switched to highlights which I HATED - I could not get used to the look of hard, horizontal lines from foils... and they never got as close to the root.
Ask your client if they would like a,
 "Color Service Upgrade"

For the last few years I have been lusting over the Pinterst photos of California based color icon Guy Tang. He can whip any ole' brassy blonde in to brilliant,  buttery bright blonde sensation with his talents. Most astonishing thing I noticed in his pictures is that all his clients' hair is long, soft, lusterous and remarkable healthy looking. No crunchy, brittle bleached out funk like I used to have. It wasn't until a month ago that I read he uses Olaplex on his color clients to maintain the hairs integrity and block any damage.

I immediately began psycho googling "Olaplex" to understand what it was and how I could find a salon on Long Island that used it.

So what is it? How is it used? This is from he Olaplex website:

For the Professional Colorist:

"- Use 1/8oz (3.75ml) Olaplex per ½ ounce scoop of lightener for Balayage.
- Add measured amount of Olaplex to pre-mixed lightener and mix thoroughly
- The amount of Olaplex used in Balayage varies to the volume of developer being used with Balayage lightener. If the highest volume of lightener you are using is 40vol. please note that with Olaplex you are working with a 30vol. result. Heat using an attached diffuser may speed up the processing time. You may
also add 1/16oz No. 1 for faster better lift if working within time constraints.

*It is common knowledge that bleach has a heat reaction to chlorine and other mineral deposits found in water and on hair.  If you are having a heat reaction, this is not caused by Olaplex. This is caused by bleach interacting with minerals.  Please rinse hair immediately if this occurs.
Even when I brush...
My hair doesn't break.

Cream Bleach = for every 1.5 oz of cream bleach you use add ¼oz (7.5ml) of No.1 Bond Multiplier. If you use more than 1.5oz cream bleach you do not use more No.1 Bond Multiplier you still only use 1/4oz of Olaplex.

Use 1/8oz Olaplex for any quantity of cream bleach under 1.5oz.

Processing Time of Lightener:  THIS VARIES.  We cannot tell you an average or approximate, as every head of hair is different.  There is no norm, but we do know that it takes longer to process, but that is okay because good hair is worth the extra time.
Heat: Heat is okay with Olaplex, but heat speeds up the chemical reaction of everything so be watchful and check every 3 to 5 minutes as you normally would. If hair is severely compromised, refrain from using heat until the reparative system has been used to restore the health, strength and integrity of the hair.
Bumping up developer:  Only bump up developer one full notch when  mixing lightener.  Do not bump up developer with base color or high-lift lighteners.
**Do not bump up the volume with lightener with baby fine hair as it is very fragile to begin with.
**Do not bump up developer volume for on-scalp bleach.
**Do not bump up for base color or gloss toners. "

I RAN to a salon in Merrick that performs Balayage with Olaplex (Beautiful People Salon). I am THRILLED with my balayage color! Not only do I have my buttery blonde highlights back, my hair looks, feels and is INCREDIBLY healthy and BLONDE! Even while the assistant was washing my hair she said, "It always surprises me when washing clients that used Olaplex... their hair doesn't fall out as much - that's HUGE!" I'll say!!

Salon pros, this is a no brainer. This product is an incredible addition to offer clients that suffer from over processed or damaged hair. Olaplex also offers a salon locator on their website! Olaplex will allow you to process your client's hair far more often while maintaining the integrity of the hair. I love that!!!

The Buzz About Bee Pollen

It's always great to have some spa pantry items to add to your treatments.  Bee pollen is known to give skin a nice, healthy glow.  Bee pollen can help acne, stimulate blood circulation, and help anti-aging effects aiding to new tissue growth.  It is considered to support your skin and add new life to it.

You can even make a nice honey mask scrub to set your facials apart from the competition. A word to the wise, though - make sure your clients don't have a bee allergy!

It can be a challenge for many people to reach certain areas, for some it may be downright impossible. A sponge on a stick can make all the difference for those clients!

You can give them out to clients, retail them alone or bundled with your favorite tanner, lotion or scrub!

Serve Gem Water in Your Spa / Salon!

VitaJuwel is the most hygienic and efficient method to prepare gem water. And it's easy! Just place a VitaJuwel gem vial in drinking water for 7-10 minutes and enjoy gem water, the true elixir of life! Using gems to vitalize water is an age-old tradition, dating back to ancient Greece and medieval times. Gems have the ability to store an energy that inspirits the surrounding drinking water, making it more lively and enjoyable. This can even be tasted by sensual water lovers! The gems don't have to physically contact the water. The glass vial acts like a natural prism for the crystal's radiant energy. Like in the natural cycle of water, with VitaJuwel the natural element stone regenerates the natural element water.

  • Fairly-traded, conflict-free gems
  • Lead-free Bohemian glass
  • Handcrafted in the European Union
  • Approximately 13.5" Long - may vary as they are hand made!
  • Designed by glass artists in the German Alps
  • Results verified by lab analysis
  • Tested by doctors & naturopaths
  • Worldwide patented manufacturing method
  • Variety of fascinating gem blends to choose from
This basic, well-balanced composition is used to vitalize water for hundreds of years. Crystal experts claim that amethyst strengthens awareness and rose quartz fosters tranquility. Either way, having this original vial and a decanter by VitaJuwel on your dining table or office desk will remind you to drink more water. Most customers find gemwater made with this blend to taste smooth and mild. If you're unsure, with which blend to start your VitaJuwel collection with, choose this one!

The Vial Wand:
The unique, lead-free premium glass vials made by master craftsmen following century-old Bohemian traditions. Key component of those vials are precious, hand-selected and fairly-traded gems from the most exotic places on earth.

Fascination Gemwater:
The use of gems to vitalize water is a traditional art which was already known to the ancient Greek and wise men and women during medieval times. Recently, this old tradition has been rediscovered. Gemstones have the ability to store energy. That effect makes quartz watches work, for example. Each type of gem, by nature, has its unique kind of energetic information. The gems inside the VitaJuwel vials transfer their information to the water that surrounds the vial and, thus, improve the waters' vitalization level. An effect which regular water drinkers might even be able to taste!

Get one of our VitaJuwel decanters in addition to your original VitaJuwel vial for the full gem water experience right from the start! Our elegant decanters are specially designed to hold a generous 50 oz. and complement our vials in form and size. The base of the decanter is rounded on its inside and, thus, helps prevent your vial from touching against the sides of the decanter.

Scentual Sleep - Aromatherapy Time!

Sleep....something most people these days are not getting enough of. Clients coming in for any service, are coming in to also get away from the craziness of their daily routines. I read an article recently on some spas offering sleep themed services to help their client's get even more relaxation out of their visit. Some were even extending hours on certain days, offering services in darker lit rooms. Even for the ones who were offering their sleep services all day long (you never know what clients work schedules may be!) having services designed to enhance sleep is an awesome way to pull new client's in.

Now for the scent part which, is one of the most important things for me when I enter ANY business, especially a spa. For now, we'll focus on scents that will help he overall relaxation experience which in turn, will allow the client to go home and snuggle into bed. Here are some of the top essential oils that your client's will be dreaming of:

Essential Oil Blend - Peaceful Sleep by Now --with chamomile, lavender and sandlewood (plus more!) you cannot go wrong with this blend. It's the warm fuzzy blanket you had as a kid, in a scent.

ESS® Relaxation Oil Blend - I have this in the diffuser in my bedroom right now. It's an interesting blend of earthy and calming scents. If you are looking for a scent that will make your client's ask where to buy it...this is it and you can retail it!

ESS Roman Chamomile Pure Essential Oil - a tried and true favorite for relaxation

Lotus Touch Relaxation Essential Oil Blend

Check out the full line of essential oils here!

Also, have some eye packs to retail to your clients and for use in services!

Guy's Night--More Than Just Manly Grooming

When I hear a spa is doing a guy's night, I think of the business offering monetary incentives to get guys in the door. I also think of featuring manly-named services to help ease any stress the guys may feel about going into a spa. While this may be the case at many spas/salons, it's not the only approach to a guy's night.

 I was reading an article over the weekend about a spa going about guy's night differently than I expected. They pick one night a month (or however often the need seems to be) typically a Sunday, and stay open an extra two hours, for only men.  During those two hours, no women are allowed, the spa becomes the man cave. Complete with complimentary snacks and alcohol, the guys can have a staff member help the guys in a laid back manner, pretty much as a personal shopper. They can help pick out gifts for the women in their life, products or even gift certificates. Everything during those guy's nights is also at a discounted rate as an added incentive. As a bonus, the guys can even chat with the staff members about any skin concerns they may be having. They can get treatment and product recommendations without feeling uncomfortable, since all the guys are there for the same reasons!

Having the guy's night event scheduled around holidays (especially Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, etc) is a great way to boost gift certificate and retail sales. Most guys have no clue about quality skin care products for the women in their life, and will trust the recommendations from an experienced professional. Plus, they will get bonus points for an awesome, thoughtful gift!

Are you currently hosting anything similar? Either way, be sure to stock up on those gift certificates, retail items like lotions, scrubs (Desert Mineral Detox Scrub is heavenly!), skin care (Alchimie Forever is incredible!), men's products like the Grooming Lounge, facial tanner, body tanner and even candles! Don't forget the gift bags to make their lives even easier!

Cold Stones For Migraine Relief

Headaches are one of the most common complaints we hear about, migraines are one of the most debilitating form of a headache. Personally, I am open to pretty much any treatment that claims migraine relief. I have tried acupressure, acupuncture, aromatherapy (Migraine Miracle is awesome!) however, I have not yet tried cold stone massage therapy treatment.

As a migraine sufferer, I am well aware of the relief a cold pack can provide. Massage therapy combined with cold therapy can be extremely helpful in dealing with migraine pain. Migraines are not only painful, but they are stressful. Massage will help calm the nervous system down which helps the body naturally relax. Cold therapy will help decrease the pressure felt by the excess blood flow to the head/brain which causes so much pain. 

Adding in complimentary treatments such as aromatherapy and trigger point massage will increase the all around benefits.
