Just in time for New Year's celebrations, Dream Smashed Crystals Jelly Pedicure Pearl to entice clients imagination and make it super simple for your techs!

Jelly pedicures are still popular across the country and with the holidays in full swing, there is always an increase of walk in clients. Pre-measured or prepackaged products make for fast and effective treatments, enabling you to offer an express pedicure to walk in clients with ease! A jelly pedicure creates a truly luxurious pedicure experience by transforming the warm pedicure water into a soft, translucent, fluffy jelly that will help melt all of your clients' daily stresses away. The mixture is made of natural plant oils that, when added to water, create a smooth gelatinous mixture that will send a thousand sensations of luxury through their toes & soles. The essential oils, aloe vera, and light fragrance will melt the stress and anxiety away while removing toxins, stimulating blood circulation to relax muscles, hydrate dry cracked skin and provides relief for stress and aching feet. Gentle enough for sensitive skin!

The pedi jelly comes in a variety of colors and scents. The colors are mostly cosmetic and are used to signal what scent the jelly is. The scents are what you want to focus on. Allowing clients to choose the perfect scent is an important part of getting a good jelly pedicure.

Soft Flex Wax

ItalWax's Soft Flex Wax is created for hair removal on larger areas, like the arms, legs, and back.

Soft Flex Wax has a high plasticity and is applied in a super thin layer on the body. ItalWax forms a thin film on the skin, which grabs all the hairs and guarantees firm adhesion with the waxing strip.

Why Soft Flex Wax?

  • Flex wax removes 100% of hair, without breakage 
  • Doesn't leave a sticky feeling on the skin
  • Pain is significantly reduced
  • Suitable for all hair times, from fine to coarse 
My top picks for my extra sensitive skin are:


Algae is a transparent-green soft wax which covers each hair with smooth film and removes all the hairs in the area of application. Smooth formula reduces pain during the depilation procedure. Contains Seaweed "Laminaria" extract which provides anti-aging and moisturizing effect. 

Available in case sizes too!

Amber is transparent-yellow soft wax which covers each hair with smooth film and removes all the hairs in the area of application. Smooth formula reduces the pain during depilation procedure. "Nothing extra" soft wax never irritates the skin and contains 99% natural components. 

Available in case sizes too!

Lash Essentials

It is all about the lashes! I have seen a huge increase in lash services, and our client's businesses are specializing in lash extensions, lifts, and perms.

I've high lighted some of our most popular supplies, for all your lash needs!

BCL Spa Essential Oil Diffuser
Set up a calm, relaxing space! Your client is going to be laying down anywhere from 1-3 hours, and comfort is key! Use a relaxing oil blend, to make the process easier on everybody!

Eyelash Glue Rings
Ideal for holding glue while applying lash extensions.
"V" shaped center holds glue drying out. Flexible band makes it easy to wear. Also great for lash primer and remover. Easy to clean for repeated use.

3D Beauty Quick Dry Mini Fan
This light-weight, portable, hand-held fan comes in handy to help speed up the drying process of eyelash extensions, as well as other facial and cosmetic procedures.

Pro Tip: Be Ready to have some easy add-on services! With the relaxing mood set, your client may be more inclined to help them relax and get some extra TLC. 

My Suggestions:
  1. A simple hand mask! Algae Peel-Off Mask - Anti-Aging Healing Hand Mask is a peel-off treatment designed to counterbalance the effects of aging and sun damaged hands.A combination of collagen and elastin preserves youthfulness and smoothness of the hands, helping to lighten dark spots.
  2. Protect the neck! Use a Collagen Crystal Neck Mask to help to lift the skin to tighten and create firmness to the neck. For best results, apply for up to 20 minutes.

Do You Even Cup, Bro?

Cupping therapy is a trend that is growing increasingly popular! I have seen anybody from professional athletes and celebrities to my own family members reaping the benefits!

Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing.

RockPods are a great complimentary treatment to manual therapy for temporary relief of pain. These rubbery suction pods make for a simple, noninvasive alternative to traditional myofascial cupping therapy.

RockPods use decompressive technology to loosen and lift connective tissue, and increase blood and lymph flow to the skin and the muscles. They stimulate the body’s natural healing process to treat chronic pain, relieve tension, and sedate the nervous system.

Why are RockPods Better?

  • 100% food grade silicone is easier to keep clean and sterile than glass or plastic
  • The built-in handles create the suction – no flame or separate vacuum device required
  • Promotes internal glide: move the skin with the cup, not the cup itself
  • Two levels of suction: plunger and inversion
  • Can be used with RockSauce, RockRub, and RockTape

Features:

  • Two sizes allow for treating different target areas
  • Comes with EVA carrying case
  • Handles allow for manipulation of the skin
  • Detailed quick start guide included
