To Beard or Not To Beard?

That is the question! Beards are the latest trend among young men all over, and it doesn't look like they're going away anytime soon. Why is this phenomenon occurring? Aside from the obvious hipster facade that's usually enigmatic and hard to fathom, the beard trend is supposedly scientific in nature according to a recent article I read. Men are growing beards to proclaim dominance over their other male counterparts and compete for women according to a study by The University of Western Australia. Sounds primitive, but I definitely like a man with a good beard!

Do you have any retail products that cater to this latest trend? We just got in a variety of beard grooming products that your young, hip, beard-growing male clients will love!



Beard oil is an essential item for your male clients who are looking to maintain their beard while keeping it conditioned and moisturized all day long. We just got in this new Beard Oil by Clubman which is infused with macadamia seed oil. It's non-comedogenic, and perfect for preventing irritation due to new hair growth.









Have some male clients that are taking this beard trend way too far and are starting to style and shape their beards? I'd suggest you introduce them to Beard Balm, an essential staple for true beard growing aficionados! This non-comedogenic style wax controls unruly beard hairs without leaving it feeling stiff and weighed down. 










Another way for your clients to add moisture to their beard is this 2-in-1 Beard Conditioner we just got in! This multi-purpose product conditions and moisturizes the beard at the same time - a great product for retailing!

Earth Day 2015

In honor of Earth Day being this week, what better way to celebrate than stocking up on some organic, eco-friendly products for your boutique? I love all things organic and natural, especially if it's earth friendly! Earth Day started back in the 1970s to bring awareness to environmental issues and how to address them, specifically with the passing of the Clean Air and Water Act which was groundbreaking at the time. It has since come a long way! With the new millennium, an emphasis on global warming and clean energy awareness is the latest issue.


We have a variety of organic and eco-friendly products here at Pure Spa Direct. See below for some of my favorites!


Eco-Fin is a great brand we love, and they make a variety of all natural, earth friendly products. My favorite is "The Balm" Moisturizing Balm which is great for retailing! Using 100% all natural ingredients, your clients will love this pocket-size moisturizer which is great for dry hair ends, lips, cuticles, knees, elbows and feet.






Are your clients looking to extend their salon tan at home using all natural, organic and paraben-free ingredients? The Norvell 360 Sunless Eco-Mist organic self-tanning spray is perfect for that! It is safe and easy to apply at home. Bonus points for being eco-friendly and 100% vegan for your animal loving clients! :)





If you are currently using wax candles at your spa, you might want to re-consider investing in some eco-friendly LED candles. They are designed to flicker just like a real candle without the flame, smoke, and wax mess! These candles are also safer for your lungs and indoor air quality - crucial elements that your Earth conscientious clients will definitely appreciate! My favorite is the Crackle Candle Glass Votive. We have tons to choose from, though. Click here to see!


I am personally a huge fan of the Alaska Glacial Mud Company, as their products are natural, organic, and just straight up fabulous! Aside from the fact that they use wild & certified organic ingredients only, there are no animal by-products or testing, and the glacial mud is sustainably hand-carved. What's so amazing is that 10% of the profits are donated to wilderness preservation, habitat restoration, environmental defense, and education in the Copper River Watershed. Their Purifying Mineral Mud Masque in Relaxing Vanilla & Lavender happens to be my favorite. Your clients will surely be hooked on this line.

So Long Ombre.. Hello Balayage!

The ombre trend has definitely faded, but there's a new highlighting trend in town! Say hello to balayage, a popular highlighting technique that's gathering a lot of attention, especially for Spring and Summer. Instead of the dramatic, contrasting colors that ombre provides, balayage is a subtle, more natural sun-kissed look. Balayage is actually a french word meaning "to swoop" or "to paint," which creates a softer, beautiful and almost all-natural look. With summer rapidly approaching, a lot of your clients are going to want lighter hair... especially since celebrities like Lana Del Rey and Khloe Kardashian have been seen sporting it! 
But are you prepared for the balayage trend? Here at Pure Spa Direct, we just got in the ColorTrak Tools Balayage Board and Brush Set that will have you all set up for this latest hair trend. This brush contains shorter brush bristles for precise coloring, as well as a slightly curved board on 2 side to better suit head shape! You'll also be quite comfortable performing this service, as the handle allows for stability. 

You'll also need to protect each highlight! Check out our film roll which is specifically for balayage treatments. For all of your salon highlighting needs, please click here, and make sure you're prepared this summer for your clients looking to get that sun-kissed balayage look!

Simple Ways to Increase Profits: Add-On Spa Services Under $10


In this time of financial uncertainty, clients are holding on tighter than ever to their money. That is not to say they won't spend it, they are just more cautious about how they spend it. It has been said in recent years that the most popular spa services are basic facials and massage. Why? Clients see/feel immediate results, at the lowest cost.


What does this mean for the spa owner? Offering a great facial at a great price will bring in more business. But how can you increase profits (after all, this is business!)? Low-cost add-ons are a great way to increase profit, as well as client satisfaction. Add-ons under $10 are a great sell, and if you can add them to every facial you give, your profits will see a healthy boost!


One of our favorite add-ons are collagen under-eye patches.
Clients often come to the spa looking tired and run down. Adding on collagen under-eye patches will reduce puffiness, making clients look younger and refreshed: exactly as they want to look when they leave your treatment room!


Pure Spa Direct recently added the 24 Carat Gold Crystal Under Eye Patches. Gold has been used for thousands of years to rejuvenate skin; in fact, it was Cleopatra's secret to looking young, firm and beautiful! Nano-sized gold particles are small enough to penetrate the skin, fight free-radicals, and boost natural collagen production for firmer, plumper skin.


This is a great add-on for facials, body wraps, or lash services. At $3.65 per pair, you have the opportunity to make up to 173% profit, while keeping the add-on under $10!

What profitable add-ons do you offer in your spa?

Essential Oils - With an Emphasis on Essential!

Ah, essential oils - probably one of my favorite spa products out there! But what makes them so great? I love how each individual oil can be used for various soothing and supposedly curative effects. While essential oils are "essential" in the sole reason that they contain the "essence" of the plant's fragrance of which they're derived from, it is important to note that different oils have different properties. Certain oils are essential for various types of aliments! Do you have enough essentials for all types of clients, especially those who receive deep tissue massages? If not, I've got you covered. See below for what I mean, and why these "essential" oils take on a whole new meaning!

Most your clients probably sit throughout the day and then cram their exercise into one quick session. This can cause excess strain on their muscles, causing spasms and inflammation. While massages definitely help to ease the pain, certain essential oils can facilitate healing as well according to an article I recently read.

Reduce Inflammation

We carry any essential oil you might need here at Pure Spa Direct. However, some are more popular than others due to their aroma and abilities to aid in soothing inflamed muscles. Peppermint is great for your clients with inflamed and overheated muscles, as it has a cooling effect. Rosemary also reduces inflammation due to its astringent properties. This can help stimulate circulation and increase blood flow to the muscles, bringing down inflammation. We have a variety of peppermint and rosemary essential oils to choose from!

Warm Muscles

While peppermint has a cooling effect, other oils have a heating effect. Juniper and ginger oils tend to warm overworked muscles. They contain natural analgesics which can help to block pain - perfect for your clients who are athletes and looking for a deep tissue massage!

Relax Muscles

Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month? It's a good chances that your clients who are stressed out have tighter muscles. Both chamomile and lavender essential oils can help calm down your clients who are extra stressed and hold tension in their muscles. They are personally my favorite, as I love their scent.

Click here to see all of our essential oils, and stock up on what your missing to help your clients in need. They are also perfect for retailing to your clients after each session!

Coachella 2015 Beauty Survival Guide

Attending Coachella 2015? No?! There's a good chance at least a couple of your clients are, especially on the West Coast. The season's hottest music festival started this past weekend in the California desert, and with one more weekend to go, help your clients be festival ready with some beauty essentials we have here at Pure Spa Direct - all great for retailing!


Hair



The pastel color hair trend was a huge hit at Coachella this past weekend, and it doesn't look like it's fading away anytime soon. Supply your salon with ColorSmash, a great temporary hair chalk available in a variety of colors, and it washes out after one rinse.. perfect for your clients who want the trend without the commitment.






With the heat of the desert, your clients are definitely going to need to tie back their hair, at least at some point throughout the day. We just got in new hair products from a brand we love called Dye-Ties in a variety of colors and collections! The Rock Star Collection is perfect for Coachella, and a fun way for your clients to add in extra style






I am personally a huge fan of dry shampoo, as it truly does work wonders to those who don't wash their hair everyday. We just got in Obliphica Perk Up Dry Shampoo by Amika that your Coachella clients will definitely put to good use this weekend! No washing necessary - just have them spray into their roots and finger comb it through their hair. Perfect for quick volume and shape without the buildup - or shower! :)






Skin



Help your clients protect their skin from the strong desert sun with the utmost essential item - sunscreen! We love this all natural Zinc-Oxide Sunblock from Burn Out, as it's made without harsh chemicals, biodegradable, and good for your clients. With an SPF of 32, your clients won't have to worry about being outside all day looking for shade. They can enjoy this outdoor festival in confidence without being burned.





Coachella is a weekend long festival, and the last thing anyone is thinking about is being clean. It's all about the music, right?! ...not so much! With your clients walking around the desert, there is most certainly going to be a lot of dust, and the heat is definitely hot. Our Sluffwipes are great for a quick and easy way to clean off dirt and exfoliate the skin! Consider it an on the go shower if you will, and great for travelling. Your clients will thank you for introducing them to this conveniently necessary piece of cloth!

The rush on hydrating and brightening products are in full swing!  Here is an awesome menu idea to freshen up your Spring body treatments! This body wrap will help smooth, exfoliate and hydrate the skin while the relaxing their cares away!

Spring Hydrating Body Wrap (I'm sure you're more creative at treatments names that will fit in with your regular menu!)

You may wish to prepare this before the client comes in to maximize time.

Prep:

Body Wrap:

Combine 4T of Sedona Mud Powder, 1T of Egg White Powder and 2t of Clove Powder  in a large rubber mixing bowl.  Add in 6T of water and stir until a paste like consistency.

Add in 15 drops of Sweet Orange Pure Essential Oil  (if you have a client who does not like orange scents or for male clients, try using 5-10 drops spearmint or 5-7 drops cedarwood essential oil instead). Mix in 3T of Organic Corn Meal and mix well (the cornmeal may soak up the liquid once it sits, you can add more water if it is too dry. If the mix becomes to wet, you can add in more of the Sedona Mud Powder).

Place the bowl in a mud warmer, hot towel cabinet or even in a stainless steel bowl filled with hot water to warm the mixture is warm and feels luxurious when applied.

Moisturizer:

In a medium rubber mixing bowl, mix 2T of Whipped Shea Butter with 5 drops Sweet Orange Pure Essential Oil (again you can substitute 5-10 drops spearmint or 5-7 drops cedarwood essential oil)


Dry brushing the client prior to the body wrap is an excellent way to start if you don't already begin that way. Once you have prepped as you normally do for wraps, check the temperature of the warmed mixture to be sure it is at a comfortable temperature before applying. Apply the mask as usual, being sure to pay extra attention to extra dry areas, especially feet, heels,knees and elbows. Once the mask has been applied, wrap the client in plastic sheeting followed by a thermal blanket. Leave on for approximately 15-20 minutes ---now is a great time for add on services like scalp massage! Remove the mask as you normally do and follow with the moisturizer!

White Is The New Green Tea

It's no secret that green tea offers a variety of health benefits ranging anywhere from weight loss to anti-stress relief. Health stores and wellness boutiques alike are implementing its powerful effects on health, beauty, and even anti-aging properties. I am all about green tea, don't get me wrong!.. but did you know that white tea is actually even more powerful than it's older sister?! I say older sister because green tea and white tea actually come from the same plant, the Camellia Sinensis. However white tea is harvested at a younger age, hence its stronger effects. It is less processed than green tea, allowing it to retain a higher antioxidant content than green. Higher antioxidants = stronger effects! The reason green tea gets all the credit is because it has been studied extensively, it's more common, and it's easier and less expensive than white. 

We're putting the lime light on white tea with a variety of products that contain this anti-oxidant rich herb here at Pure Spa Direct! These products are a fun way to change up your normal green tea treatments you offer or retail at your spa, or to simply add a new variety of tea products! Check below for some of my favorites.. 

We just got in this white tea and ginger sugar scrub here at Pure Spa Direct, and I could not be more excited! This is actually a 3-in-1 formula that exfoliates, cleanses, and moisturizes. It's perfect for spa treatments including pedicures. Change up your pedicure menu by adding a white tea spa pedicure that will certainly intrigue your clients from the normal green tea pedicure they're used to.

Go Bananas with Banana Spa Products for Spring!

Aside from being super delicious and one of my favorite fruits, did you know that bananas are a beautifying food? A recent article I read claims that bananas help to hydrate cells and keep the skin smooth and moisturized due to their high potassium content. They also contain significant amounts of vitamin C and B6, which helps to maintain skin elasticity and act as a natural moisturizer. With the warmer months coming up, you might want to try incorporating a fun new treatment in your spa! 

We have a variety of banana products here are Pure Spa Direct that I love! Check below for some of my favorites...






Check out this banana mask, which can be a great way to add variety to your normal facial menu. It's loaded with skin nourishing banana extract to help maintain smooth skin. This is a very unique mask that will sweeten up any facial treatment!










With the warmer months coming up, why not change up the soap you're currently using in your spa's bathroom to something seasonal? This liquid hand soap by Pure and Basic in wild banana and vanilla is a delicious and aromatic summer scent that your clients will love! It's also paraben free!
