Happy Penguins (and even Happier Clients)!


I was super excited to see that our best selling retail brush - the infamous Wet Brush - just got a whole lot cuter! How adorable is the new Happy Penguin print on these brushes? Whether you admit to it or not, the colder months are ahead, so why not stock your salon with this new arctic chill print?


What exactly makes these brushes one of the hottest selling salon items out there, you ask?! Aside from working well on wet hair, they also detangle hair with ease using the adaptive flexibility of IntelliFlex. The bristles one them are super thin, strong and very flexible. This completely eliminates tugging, tearing, pulling and ripping...your clients will be happier than the happiest penguin on the print :) A bit cheesy, I know, but they are just too cute! Okay okay, aside from the adorable print, what's the selling point? Other than being the best selling brush we have, you can increase your business profits from the 9 piece retail display for nearly double the amount of your wholesale cost. Happy Penguins, Happier Clients.. but you'll be the happiest of them all knowing this! Get them today here at Pure Spa Direct before they sell out, since I know we tend to sell these brushes fast!

Are Your Clients Bored? Check Out Some Ideas to Keep 'Em Coming!

Even with seasonal menu changes, clients can become used to your menu options which can lead to boredom - which can lead to them checking out what your competition is offering.

Are you offering things like "treatment of the day/month"? This is a great way to get clients to try new services, even at a discounted rate. You can introduce them to the next level of service, improve their results and increase their loyalty to you. Be sure to pick something from different categories each month to expand what your clients are coming in for. Things like microcurrent, high frequency, and body wraps are always great. Even offering an add on off the month like Eco-Fin or a collagen neck treatment can be successful for clients who have been on the fence about trying something new.

Do you have staff picks displayed in your retail section? Clients like to see what the professionals recommend and use themselves. This is a great way to boost retail sales and again, introduce new products and services to clients. As you've probably seen, once you get your clients talking they are more open to suggestions.

I've seen great success in companies that offer a monthly "how to" class. Whether it be proper techniques to use at home or on how to pick products for their skin type. Be sure to have products ready to demo, samples, sample jars and for purchase.

Fall Isn't Just for Pumpkins!

Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin beer, pumpkin body cream, pumpkin tampons (wait these actually DONT exist, and should never)...by the time October hits, almost every retail product and food item is associated with a pumpkin. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed my PSL from Starbucks this morning, my apartment is already stocked with pumpkin candles and pumpkin body cream, and cans of pumpkin puree are in my kitchen waiting to be made into festive pumpkiny treats. I think it's time to give the pumpkins a break (at least for this blog post) and highlight another festive fall scent that is often overlooked: Ginger Red Currant!

If you haven't already started incorporating fall scents into your spa products yet, what are you waiting for? I'm sure you're fully stocked on pumpkin, but have you considered Ginger Red Currant as a new scent to add to your spa? The smooth fruity scent of red currant combined with spicy ginger will make your clients excited for the upcoming cooler months as well as the holidays that are rapidly approaching! 

We have an amazing product in stock now for fall. Check out our Maxim Pedi Redi Red Ginger & Currant scrub! This scrub soften calluses and cuticles and will remove dead skin while significantly reducing scrubbing time for the pedicurist. This specially formulated product contains the delicious essential and fragrance oils of red currant and ginger. Get this in your spa for the upcoming months, and your clients will thank you!

Face Fruit - Natural Exfoliation

Exfoliation is not something new, as you and your clients are well aware of.  There are different types of products that can be used to exfoliate the skin. Are you utilizing the power of fruit enzymes for exfoliation?

Fruit enzymes are particularly good for clients with oily and mature skin types.  Fruit enzymes help gently remove (digest) dry, dull, superficial layers of the skin to leave a smoother, more youthful look.

The top two that seems to always be flying out of the warehouse are papaya and pumpkin - perfect for going into the fall season!

The Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs is always a great choice. Paraben and preservative free, the natural fruit enzymes combined with things like sweet almond oil and borage help improve the look and feel of the skin. It's available in back bar and retail sizes, be sure to have some retail sizes on hand!

The Papaya Enzyme Peel by Ayur-Medic Skincare is another option that is chock full of papaya goodness as well as lactic, salicylic, and acetic acid to help clear the skin.

If you prefer mixing your own, take a look at the Exfoliating Papaya Enzyme Mask / 1 Lb. Bulk by uQ. This pairs well with the Fruit Acid Peel Ampoules by uQ!

Just like the papaya, the Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque by June Jacobs is a top seller. Full of essential fatty acids, vitamins A and C, as well as zinc, this helps exfoliate and aid in the healing process - all leaving the skin glowing!

Not to be outdone, Ayur-Medic has a phenomenal Pumpkin Exfoliant that is effective yet gentle!

For those clients that seem to have skin that is overly oily or just needs a gentle, effective exfoliation, be sure to have some fruit enzyme exfoliating products
on hand!

Offer Your Clients Products with Frangipani Oil - They Will Thank You!

Not familiar with this oil? Neither was I until I read an recent article on its beauty benefits. Although it sounds like a decadent Italian dessert (yum!), frangipani oil comes from the frangipani tree which is also known as the tree of life and for centuries has been regarded for its healing powers. This oil is commonly used for its natural anti-aging properties, and also as an aromatherapy to help people maintain a sense of clam. 


We have a few products made with this luxurious healing oil here at Pure Spa Direct! If you haven't heard of the amazing brand MeBath yet, you are missing out! I personally love their products, and I'm sure your clients will, too. They make an amazing sugar scrub and effervescent soak that's created using frangipani oil and mulberry leaves. The icing on the cake? It's infused with delicious blue agave making it smell so delicious you wish you could eat it! How cute is the packaging too?  Get these on your retail shelves today!

Wanna Be a Cowgirl? No? How about an Urban Cowgirl! The new Gelish Urban Cowgirl 2015 Fall Collection is Here!

Urban Cowgirl 2015 Fall Collection - Set of 6. For the rodeo woman with a city style, the Gelish Urban Cowgirl 2015 fall collection will have nails ready to make a statement at any shindig. With six stunning shades from a rustic nude, refined deep dark plum to a foxy frosted red, finding a stunning shade to turn heads this season won’t be a problem.

“This season we wanted to introduce a modern, yet classic color palette,” says CEO and Founder of Gelish, Danny Haile. “And, the first thing that came to mind was a Western theme. Each shade is a harmonious blend of rugged and sophistication, from a frosty dark pink to a genteel subtle nude creme finish.”

Here is the roundup for the NEW shades in the collection:
Pony up and stay ahead of the style curve this season by adding the Urban Cowgirl collection filled with shades to suit any independent, rugged woman with a feminine touch.

Gelish colors apply like a polish, with twist cap and applicator, but are cured in a lamp like gels. The gels come in an array of colors, and cure in a LED lamp in 30 seconds or cure in two minutes in traditional UV lamps. Gelish stays on nails for three weeks with no chipping or peeling, and soak completely off in only 10-15 minutes. When applied with Gelish FOUNDATION Base Gel, each Gelish Polish will do approximately 25-30 full sets of nails (using 2 coats of color). Gelish soak-off gel polishes are intended for use with Gelish foundation.

An Esthetician's Best Friend... The Mighty (OK, more like Mini) Lancet!

Lances and Lancets are used by estheticians for the extraction of white heads and other blemishes. Whiteheads are removed in the same manner as blackheads except that an opening in the dead cell layer must first be made. This is done by placing a lancet almost parallel to the surface of the skin and pricking the cell layer to make an opening for the debris to pass through. Clean lancet between each blemish.

Pure Spa Direct offers a great selection of  Lances and Lancets -- both disposable and sterilizable for skin care professionals!
