Beat The Winter Blues With Desert Themes!

Maybe it's the cold weather here in New York, but my mind is on warm sunshine, ok more like desert heat but that could be my popsicle hands speaking :)

One idea that I always like and have seen clients have great success with, is incorporating treatments that are the opposite of what the weather is. In the summer, focus on arctic, cooling treatments. In the winter, think warm!

Client's are used to seeing tropical/island theme's however, desert themes (depending on your location) can be an unexpected hit! You can dedicate one treatment room for the theme, if you have the space. Bring in some small cactus plants, use "desert" colors like coral, tan, sage, reds etc, pick out some agave, lime or aloe infused products - even mojitos!

Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub - this is a no brainer! Our best selling scrub across the board for use in services and for retailing.

Sedona Mud - facials, body wraps, hydrotherapy - from the Southwest, red in color and chock full of minerals to detox in prep (and recovery from) for the holidays!

Desert Rain Incense Sticks 
Aloe Vera Products
Hot Stones - perfect for winter!
Polar Fleece Blanket - Camel 
Chocolate Sheets
Sage Sheets

Be sure to have a quality table warmer like the Samadhi-Pro by Earthlite available to ensure clients are nice and toasty!

Top Male Services!

It's no secret that the demand for men's services has been on a steady rise for quite some time. It was interesting to see a survey of the most poplar services among "millennial men" - ages 18-35. A survey done by the International SPA Association found that 47% of spa goers are men; almost half now!

Men are going in for more than just a cut, shave or massage.  Cosmetic procedures, facials and manicures are popular with this age group. Also popular, at 52% of the men surveyed, are anti aging treatments, acne and skin hydration issues.

For this age group, the stigma of the spa being too girly for guys has long passed. They understand the importance of taking care of their skin and the importance of quality products to use at home.

With that being said, are you offering more than just cuts and shaves specifically marketed towards men? By adding an essential oil such as cedarwood to a treatment can give it a more manly touch.

Be sure to offer male specific retail products, they will trust your recommendations rather than wandering around the drug store or using a bar of soap on their face! Here are some of the most popular men's products at spas and salons across the world:

The Grooming Lounge - a phenomenal line created by barbers for men! From hair care to shaving, the guys will love the packaging and ease of use!

Tao Of Man - from cleansers to eye cream and simple packaging, you can't go wrong. There is even a 3 in 1 that is a cleanser, an aftershave, and a moisturizer - perfect for guys who don't want to spend much time on their skin care regimen!

Don't forget the wraps, robes, and slippers for your guys too!
