Warm Fingers are Happy Fingers!

Few things make me more uncomfortable than being cold. Most spas and salons pay careful attention to this detail with warming blanks in treatments, checking the water temperature before a hair rinse, etc.  Somehow though, the warm comfort idea escapes many manicurists.  Manicure dishes ofen have cool water in them, lotions are not often warmed, acetone and solvents evaporate and make the skin cold too.  Brrrrrrrrrhhhhh!!!

There is a simple solution though... for UNDER $3!!! The Deluxe Warming Manicure Bowl by DL Pro is soooooo simple, but soooooo effective!  Specially designed for warming water, lotion, cuticle oil or acetone. The bowl consists of two parts, the outer container and the inner manicure bowl. The outer container is filled with hot water then locked into place to prevent leaking. Heat from the hot water warms up the contents of the inner bowl --water, lotion, oil or acetone -- anything that is in the well of the inner manicure bowl.  

Soooooo Nice!!! Ergonomic comfort design contours to the hand. Measures: 4-1/4"L x 3-1/4"W x 2"Deep.

Pretty neat, eh?  Make your clients happier for less than $3.  Order a Deluxe Warming Manicure Bowl by DL Pro for every manicure station today!

Bad Breath and Salon Services - What Your Clients May Not Be Telling You

I had a facial once by a very sweet and talented esthetician with the WORST breath imaginable. Every time she exhaled while directly above me, I cringed - I wanted out of that facial so badly I couldn't think about anything else! I wanted to say something, but I just stopped booking her rather than put myself in an awkward position.

A friend of mine told me about a similar experience she had with a nail tech who did her gel nails. She said, "She gave the best permanent french manicure in New York, but her chronic halitosis was too much to bare, so I started seeing another girl in a different salon." OUCH! So breath is a touchy but important issue in client retention.

In almost all services, clients are sitting under you, across from you or directly in front of you, it is very important to make sure your breath not offensive. What you eat for lunch stays on your breath for hours, not to mention that sinus, digestive and gum issues can also cause foul smelly breath. Chewing gum while performing services isn't attractive or professional, and it is also ineffective for strong foods like garlic, onion and spices that can linger heavily for hours. And these spices are in almost everything - even some salad dressings cause stank breath!

The best solution for this problem is Mint Asure Mini Capsules. They are 100% natural and work from the inside out. After eating, enjoy 2 or 3 MintAsure mini capsules in your mouth for a few seconds, then swallow with beverage of choice. The powerful mint coating on the capsules instantly freshens breath, but the real magic happens once you swallow these babies! Mint Asure capsules release odor fighting Parley Seed and Xylitol for fighting strong breath odors caused by garlic, onions, peppers and spicy foods. They REALLY, REALLY work and they are VERY easy to swallow. I have them on me at ALL times. Try them, and don't be afraid to get close!
