It's All About the....Lashes!

Lash services are some of the most popular services a spa or salon can offer. From the spa's perspective, services such as lash/brow tinting, lash perming, and lash lifting are business smart because they are:

  • Extremely profitable services
  • Take up relatively little time (other than lash extensions, of course)
  • Require very little storage space
  • Great add-on services
  • Keep clients coming back in on a regular basis
From the client's perspective, who wouldn't love to wake up looking like they have taken the time to curl their lashes and put on mascara? At a relatively low price point, these services are a super simple way to open up the face, and give clients a fresh, put-together look!

Lash perming and lash lifting have become increasingly popular lately. But what is the difference? It is actually very simple. The process is basically the same for both perming and lifting. The difference lies in the shape of the rod. Lash perming uses cylindrical rods, creating a definite C-shaped curl in the lash. The effect is dramatic. Our most popular lash perm products are the Refectocil Lash Perm - available in a convenient starter kit, as well as refill products to purchase as necessary! 

Lash lifting, by contrast, uses rods that are curved on one side, and flat on the other, thereby lifting the lashes from the base of the eyelid, but creating a more subtle curl in the lash. The effect is a subtle look that really opens and refreshes the face, without adding drama.

So, which should you offer? In my opinion, you should offer both - the more options your clients have, the more control they will feel, and the more likely they will take the plunge for that first service! In talking to your client, you can ask questions about their lifestyle, and get a better idea of which would be more suitable for them, and then suggest the appropriate service. If a client is more laid back and casual, the idea of a subtle lift might sound more appealing than a dramatic curl - or vice versa, of course!

Of course, you know your business and clients the best - so you decide what will be best for both of you! 

Let us know what your most popular lash service is!

Bottoms Up! Spas Helping Clients Put Their Best Butt...Forward?

Help your clients prepare for summer by offering
"Tush Treatments" - like a facial, but for the other end!
Recently, I was reading an article in Dermascope magazine called Fanny Facials, and at first I thought...hmm, are we really doing this? But then I thought....skin is just skin, so why not?

Our rear ends are under a lot of pressure these days....both literally and figuratively. Many of us sit on it for hours a day. We put it through excruciating pain to get it looking just how we like when we are dancing or prancing. We use it for virtually every lower body movement we make. Why not make its skin smooth, shiny, and beautiful too?

For spas and estheticians, Tush Treatments are becoming all the rage! If you are comfortable with scrubbing and polishing clients' behinds, this can be an excellent source of revenue for you - especially at this time of year! Clients everywhere are baring all, and that includes their rears. Make them feel beautiful, front AND back!

Sample Suggested Tush Treatment Protocol
If you have a basic facial room, this simple protocol can be easily followed to target hydration and toning "back there!"

  1. Rear end/back/thigh skin analysis
    PRO TIP: Excellent time to discuss waxing down under with your client! 
  2. Cleanse
  3. Exfoliate
  4. Steam
  5. Extractions (as needed)
    PRO TIP: Extractions in this area is little different from other skin - the hair follicles are different, and squeezing will only serve to spread bacteria and cause more acne. 
  6. High Frequency for acne (as needed)
    PRO TIP: High frequency will need to be on a higher setting than you would use on the face.
  7. Gently massage, using upward strokes and a light, non-comedogenic massage lotion or oil.
  8. Apply applicable mask (acne, hydrating, etc.)
  9. Apply toner
  10. Moisturize
    PRO TIP: Since the rear end is covered by undergarments and pants, keep the moisturizer light to avoid clogging pores and creating more problems than you are solving!)
A great add-on or follow-up treatment to your Bottoms Up treatment is a spray tan! Everyone feels better with a tan, and spray tanning goes a long way to help skin all over look tight and toned! Offer a full body spray tan at a slightly discounted price as an add-on to the Bottoms Up treatment, and watch your profits explode!

Best part about this treatment is coming up with the cutest, catchiest name you can! I am partial to Skin by Molly's "Shiny Hiney" treatment! What are the best names you can think of?

Easing Your Clients' Allergies and Increasing Profit!!!

Depending on where you live, you may have noticed more and more people sneezing and rubbing their eyes. The dreaded allergy season is upon many of us here and it's driving everyone nuts!

A great way to increase revenue is by simply offering an allergy season add-on to your current treatment menu.

Essential oils are an extremely cost effective way to provide additional benefits to your clients especially those suffering from allergies.

The following essential oils are great for providing much needed relief from itchy watery eyes, sneezing and congestion:

ESS Globulus Eucalyptus Pure Essential Oil 
Eucalyptus is a great multipurpose oil that has been shown to have anti inflammatory properties. It works wonders on congestion, headaches and aids in breathing.

ESS Peppermint Pure Essential Oil 
Peppermint is also great for opening up the sinuses and easing headaches.

ESS® Pure Essential Lemon Oil 
Lemon is particularly good for beating those winter blues and helping clear out allergy issues. It also has antibacterial properties!

ESS® Cypress Pure Essential Oil 
This lesser known oil is amazing for chest ailments to help ease breathing and suppress coughing fits.


If you are looking for one big allergy blend to either market within an existing facial or to make a great allergy massage oil, mix lavender, lemon and peppermint! It creates an amazing aroma that may produce instant relief for allergy symptoms!

The possibilities to incorporate and market an allergy relief special can be as unique as you and your business are! Once your clients feel the added benefit of these oils you can also retail the oils!

Eco-fin. An Environment Friendly Alternative To Paraffin Treatments!


Want to know a great, healthy way to get soft skin, all while being friendly to the environment?

Eco-fin Paraffin Alternative is the answer! Eco-fin is a natural eco-friendly alternative to popular paraffin treatments. It is made with 100% natural plant-based emollients and pure essential oils. It contains no petroleum, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances. Eco-friendly, people-friendly, and biodegradable. Eco-fin is a healthy and nourishing treatment that leaves your skin soft without harming the environment. It is a rich blend of palm, soy, jojoba, organic oils, shea butter, vitamin E and essential oils. Another great perk to this product: preparing and clean up are super easy!

Did I also mention they smell great?! Your client will love choosing from these amazing scents:

Happy: Raspberry-Grapefruit Blend
Muse: Cinnamon-Ginger Blend
Escape: Peppermint Essence
Shangri-La: Jasmine-Sandlewood Blend 
Pleasure: Chocolate Essence
Dream: Vanilla Essence
Reverie: Lavender-Vanilla Blend
Retreat: Coconut-Pineapple Blend
Be Well: Green Tea-Aloe Blend
Purity: Unscented


Instructions for an Eco-fin treatment:

  • Drop the selected Eco-Fin Cube into the prepared Eco-Sleeve. 
  • Roll the sleeve over itself into a tidy roll. 
  • *Note: For convenience, you can order extra Eco-Sleeves for Mitts and Eco-Sleeves for Booties and prepare several rolls ahead of time. They can be kept warm in your hot towel cabi, or you can warm the liner only in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds before inserting it into the sleeve. Use caution when using microwaves as they vary and may require less heating time. Overheating can melt the plastic liners.
  • If you don’t have a warmed sleeve already prepared, warm the liner only in the microwave for 30 seconds before inserting the Eco-Fin cube into the sleeve. 
  • Unroll the Eco-Sleeve and slide it onto guest’s hand or foot. Help disperse the rich emulsion evenly by massaging over the hands or feet.
  • Place warm herbal or electric mitts/booties onto the hands or feet.
  • Remove mitts/booties and liners after 10 to 15 minutes and massage remaining emulsion into hands and forearms or feet and legs. Discard used liners and reuse sleeves/herbal mitts & booties.


Also, this is a great, low cost add-on for any spa/salon treatments you offer! Based on a hand treatment using 1 cube per hand, it's less then $1.60 per treatment!

Stimulate Your Menu by Adding a Dry-Brushing Service or Add-on!

Its a New Year, and I am sure all of you spa owners are looking to stimulate your service menu! An inexpensive service to add (or add-on treatment to offer!) is dry skin brushing.

It is well known that the skin is the largest organ in the human body, and taking good care of your skin helps with overall health. Dry skin brushing is a great way to exfoliate, improve circulation, combat cellulite, and more. While this is a treatment clients can perform on themselves at home, getting started by having a professional treatment in your spa is a great jump-start! Not to mention....it is a whole lot more relaxing to have someone else dry brush you than attempting to dry brush your own body!

Benefits of Dry Brushing
  • Exfoliates dead skin cells
  • Improves circulation by stimulating top layers of skin
  • Helps boost immune system
  • Aids in lymphatic drainage
  • Excellent anti-cellulite treatment
  • Helps rid the body of toxins
  • Can help even muscle tone and redistribute fat deposits
Dry brushing is a great treatment to offer when the seasons are transitioning, since the skin is sensitive to environmental changes. Dry brushing is performed with your choice of a number of tools: loofahs, sisal, "paint" brushes, body brushes, exfoliating gloves, and more.

Check out the video below to view the technique, as well as some of the benefits of adding dry brushing to your menu:



For under $2, you can easily incorporate this new treatment into your offerings and start wowing your clients! Plus, since results are best when the skin is dry brushed on a regular basis, you can boost your revenue by retailing dry brushes or gloves to your clients so they can continue their treatments at home!

How to Use Ampoules During A Facial - European Beauty Secrets for Pros

Little Vials of Potency.
Ampoules = Beauty.
Ahhhh the snap of a treatment ampule! I get excited just thinking about it! That's because these concentrated little vials of botanicals, Vitamins & Anti-Oxidants give facial clients that ethereal glow that keeps them coming back for more.  In this video excerpt from European Facials Vo. 2 by Rita Page, Rita refers to Ampoules as "the guns for the treatment". That's because treatment ampoules are packed with highly active ingredients at high concentrations.  Incorporating an ampoule into your facials can help your clients achieve the results they are looking for... that firmness and sublime "after glow" that keeps them re-booking with YOU.   Pure Spa has an ENORMOUS selection of professional treatment Ampoules for spa professionals.  Everything from Caviar, Oxygen, to Swiss Collagen, we have Ampoules from all over the world to help fit your technique, and your clientele's desires.

When to use a treatment ampoule?
Ampoules are typically used in the facial process after cleansing.  Take time to gently tap droplets of the ampoule onto the skin and lightly massage onto facial skin, decollete, orbital area and neck.  Many esthetician prefer to perform the ampoule massage with steam, to ensure maximum penetration.  A mask of choice can be applied over the skin while the ampoule is still moist. Follow with the use of a moisturizer.
For a more comprehensive tutorial on adding ampoules to your facial treatments,  consider purchasing Rita Page's DVD, European Facial Techniques.  Here is a clip from the 1 hr 25 min DVD:
