Doing a Retro Barber Shop the Right Way!

These days, it is all about Retro style, and barber shops are no different! Men want a place they can go to feel comfortable, pampered, and come out looking their best, and barber shops styled after the old days of yore are becoming increasingly popular.

Thinking about retro-fitting your barber shop? Just because your style LOOKS old doesn't mean it can't offer convenience. Check out some of our favorite Retro Barber Shop Products below:

The Anton Barber Chair is upholstered with a rustic Chestnut Brown leather like vinyl, has antique style metal accents, and features heavy-duty white fiberglass from top to bottom. This barber chair also features towel hangers under each armrest, a right sided reclining lever, a flip up footrest, an adjustable headrest, and an authentic metal accent calf rest with plush cushioning for additional client comfort. The Anton Barber CHair reclines up to 45 degrees for professional shaves. For lifetime value, this barber chair is built on an NG1 Pump & base with a matching white fiber glass covering to accent the chair design.

What's a barber shop without a proper barber pole? This Barber Light Pole represents the ultimate symbol of barbers - then and now!

Ok, ok, so maybe this isn't retro - but the whole idea of a hot shave with a straight razor and warm foam brings back images of barbers throughout the ages!

What are some other essentials for an old-time barber shop?

Escape to the Desert with The NEW China Glaze Desert Escape Collection!

The all new China Glaze Desert Escape Collection is here, and it is HOT HOT HOT! Inspired by sand dunes, cloudless skies, surprising pops of color, and the heated colors that make desert culture so vibrant, this collection has left us speechless for the summer!

China Glaze lacquers feature a one-of-a-kind formula that contains a special balance of polymers, to maintain color, shine and luster, and resins, to enhance flexibility and adhesion, which work together to create a nail lacquer that is chip-resistant, long lasting and durable. Lacquers contain China Clay as a nail hardener, the same material that gives porcelain its shiny finish.

Offer Your Clients a Sugar High - Naturally!

Sugar can be seen as both a blessing and a curse. It's a personal vice of mine, and I'm sure for many of your clients as well! Lately it's been getting a bad rap, and even seen as poisonous and toxic. While it may have a bad reputation in sweets, it most certainly makes up for it in regards to skincare.

According to an article I read, sugar is actually a natural source of glycolic acid which is perfect for exfoliating dead skin cells. This in turn can smooth and even out the skin, making it a perfect regimen to add to your client's skincare.

Are you in need of a new retail product to sell to your clients? How about a new sugar scrub spa treatment? We have a variety of sugar scrubs from MeBath that are perfect for retailing to your clients! With scents like Madagascar Vanilla & Lavender With White Truffle (yum!), and Toasted Coconut & Lime With Sandalwood, on top of the attractive packaging, your clients can't help but be addicted! This tri-functional exfoliating sugar scrub is a revolutionary 3-in-1 formula that exfoliates, cleanses & moisturizes. Gentle enough to be used daily, this sugar-based scrub is infused with the finest organic jojoba oil, known for its remarkable ability to stimulate the production of your body’s own natural emollients.

Click here to see all of our products by MeBath, including all of their sugar scrubs. You'll most certainly be addicted :)

Limoncello Massage!

Limoncello makes many think about summer or the beach...relaxing at it's best! Why not transfer that into something new for your massage clients?

Lemon Cello Massage Oil may be your new summer menu option! You can have a Limoncello themed package complete with samples of limoncello (if you have a local company who has great limoncello, it's a great chance for referrals between the two companies!), lemon water and the Lemon Cello Massage Oil below!

Lemon Cello Massage Oil is excellent for tired, achy muscles and for calming down frazzled nerves. It's a very light oil that smells so good you'll have to make sure no one tries to drink it!

Lemon Cello Massage Oil
Mix together 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil with 3 drops of lemon essential oil and 1 drop Spanish Marjoram essential oil in an amber bottle. Put the lid on and shake well.

It's as easy as that to create a new unique experience for your clients!

You can even retail the oil to your clients if you like as an added bonus!
