Spring for Fresh Flowers to Freshen Up Your Business!

Spring is in the air, the flowers are blooming, and it is time to freshen up your spa! At this time of year, flowers are plentiful, and bringing fresh flowers into your spa will not only make your clients smile, but lift your employee's spirits as well.

Solicit genuine smiles from clients by displaying
fresh flowers in various locations in your spa.
So much of the spa-going experience is sensory, whether is is the sights, smells, sounds, or the feel of the spa treatment. By adding a fresh flower bouqet at your front desk, your clients will immediately be drawn into a relaxing state of mind just by walking through the door. A beautiful bouquet of flowers not only looks pretty, but also smells delicious and intrinsically improves a person's mood.

According to studies, fresh flowers have been linked to better emotional health, improved memory, and increased social interaction. By displaying fresh flowers throughout your spa, you are sending messages of hospitality and friendliness to both your clients and your employees. Your clients will be more relaxed, enjoy their spa treatment more, and feel refreshed longer. This can translate into increased appointments and more positive reviews of your business. Your employees will be happier, smile more, and feel more life satisfaction when they are surrounded by fresh flowers, which can lead to more positive interactions with clients and increased job satisfaction.

Displaying flower arrangements in your spa does not have to break the bank, and it does not have to be a time-consuming ordeal. Pure Spa Direct offers these cool Accent Towers to make displaying flowers a breeze. They are available in a number of different sizes and shapes to suit your spa's decor. We also have a number of Decor Vases, so check them out today! Even a single bloom is sure to make someone smile!

Refresh Your Treatment Menus with Kiwi-Derived Products

Everyone knows that Pomegranates, Blueberries and Acai Berries are some of the most nutrient-rich and antioxidant-filled foods available. Anywhere I go, I can find facials, manicures and pedicures offering these fruits as part of their services. While these fruits are excellent, sometimes there can be too much of a good thing and the market becomes over-saturated with a certain kind of product. For that reason, I am recommending you introduce the fabulous Kiwi to your services.

Considered to be the most nutrient-dense fruit in existence, Kiwi extracts soothe inflamed skin, have antioxidant properties and even help repair cellular DNA. Please see below for some fantastic Kiwi Products available for your purchase:
  1. Kiwi Cuticle Oil
  2. Kiwi Lotion
  3. Kiwi Scrub
  4. Kiwi Face Mask
  5. Kiwi Depilatory Wax
  6. Even Kiwi Nail Polish!
Surprise and excite you clients with Kiwi products today!

Worry-Free Washout Massage Gel - New from Biotone

You want your clients to have the best experience in the world when they are at your Spa. Why not give them the best massaging solutions? Biotone Massage Advanced Therapy Gel is the perfect solution for use in your massage services. It will give you 25% more coverage than ordinary oils and it will not start flaking like some massage creams do. There is no need for reapplication like other oils or creams. So the massage session will not be interrupted for the purpose of using more oil or cream. Another couple of great facts about the massage gel: it is hypoallergenic, unscented and Paraben-free. So for clients or possible clients who are allergic to some of the perfumes or oils found in other massage products do not have to worry about that.

Made with Fractionated Coconut Oil, Mango Butter and Aloe Vera. True Balance Massage Gel offers ideal glide, beneficial skin nutrients and versatility for all modalities. Light, satiny glide provides a smooth finish. Gentle, unscented and long-lasting.  BEST PART: Worry-Free washout for easy removal.

I know from experience that this works and is better than oils or creams. My girlfriend loves massages and she has said that the Biotone Gel is the best solution she has used. The feel and the usage will make a huge difference for your customers that love massages. Like I said the feel and the endurance of this product is worth every penny. We have it available in an 8oz bottle and a gallon. If you already like Biotone products check out Pure Spa Direct we carry tons of their items.

Spa Towels Looking Grody? Try Turk Towel's Black Makeup Towels

The most frequently used towels during spa services are convenient, hand sized towels. Commonly used for removing make-up during a facial, wiping muds, body wraps and clays from skin; hand towels perform essential spa duties. Yet there are many times when no amount of bleach and laundering can get out the deep set stains left behind from these products. What remains are unsightly discolorations that make clients cringe! I personally can't even count how many beautiful, expensive towels I have ruined cleaning my make-up brushes. It's like the make-up becomes permanently fixed to the towel, and the towels ended going in the garbage or to recycling.

So I was so thrilled to see that these new Turkish Make-up Towels have the unparalleled luxury of 100% premium Turkish Cotton for superior durability, softness and absorbency - but they are BLACK to avoid discoloration.  Used in many high-end hotels, Turk's Black Makeup Towels make a great alternative to staining pricey spa linens. Machine washable.

    2012 Summer Trend; NEON Nails - Polish Displays Available NOW!!

    NEON - Do you offer it?
    Your nail clients will want neon shades, and they will want them ALL!  I walked into Sephora yesterday and in the center of the store was a newly erected display of  neon polishes. This huge 360 display of bright and beautiful colors had shoppers of all ages mesmerized.  The display was mobbed, and I was fighting my way through the crowd to see them for myself.  These LOUD and obnoxious shades of summer were tempting and irresistible until one by one we all began to realize these trendy hues were selling at $14+ each! Being that the popular trend is to use 2-3 different colors on each hand, this was turning people away.  One woman commented, "I don't need to buy $42 bucks of these polishes, I'll just get a manicure - I am sure they have these colors at my salon!".  Well let's hope so!  I think it is wise for salons and spas to closely follow the trends set forth in media, fashion and big retail. Neon is trending, and you can't escape it, it's everywhere!! Thumbing through look books from Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Saks this week I spotted the neon trend in accessories, clothing, shoes, and nails! 

    So make sure your salon has a great selection of neons for your fashion forward clients.  This 216 piece display from Color Club boasts a great price as well as a great selection of the top neon colors of the season, at a fabulous price.  Your cost is approx. $1.62 each, low enough so that you can set the suggested retail price to be attractive to clients ($5 - $6) and still make a great profit. 18 great neon shades to choose from!

    Available only to licensed beauty professionals at!

    Buzz with Confidence... Da Gauge Makes Da Cut Straight!

    Any barber or stylist knows the fear of getting things straight with shavers, trimmers, and clippers. The slightest goof and well, things are not looking too good. There is a confidence building solution -- Da Gauge. Da Gauge is a precision controlled device that attaches to shavers, trimmers, and clippers that takes the guess work out of making that "perfect line".

    It is simple enough in principle, it is a tiny (dime sized) fluid filled level with degree markings on it. It sticks on to your shavers, trimmers, clippers and it gives you a great reference as you are buzzing. There is a reason builders use levels during construction... they help ensure things come out right. Da Gauge does the same for building the perfect clipper cut!

    Product Club Foil Assistant- The Assistant that Doesn't Require a Salary!

    In the world of a colorist, who does a lot of highlighting on a daily basis, you know that with each and every foil application, comes the annoying process of reaching, grabbing, sometimes tearing, and setting each foil, a minimum of 20-30 times per client. It can be a tedious and time consuming process. It is always great to have the foils pre-cut and prepped to be easily grabbed beforehand, but sometimes it doesn't always work out that way. Somehow they will still mange to stick together! Sometimes your clients may be willing to assist you with this process, by handing you the foils, while others might prefer to relax while they're paying for the service of getting their hair done..

    …. Now you can kiss your your sticky foil troubles away and find a little help with the Product Club Foil Assistant. While keeping your styling station neat, the Product Club Foil Assistant can make the arduous job of a colorist (a much-needed) little-bit easier. The Product Club Foil Assistant picks-up and separates each foil, sheet by sheet. As a colorist you know this is a huge time saver.... and time is money!

    Flocked Sponge meets Latex - New Wet/Dry Applicator Sponges

    Flocked Sponges Create
    A Velvety, Smooth Finish...
    I love flocked sponges for applying make-up.  Something about the texture that helps to burnish liquid foundation into the skin, leaving a smooth and airbrushed appearance behind.  I also feel that it helps create lasting finish... make-up stays on all day because it has been well blended onto the skin.  So I was thrilled to try these new Wet/Dry Applicator Sponges  that deliver the best of both worlds; Teardrop shaped, double-sided applicator sponges with non-latex foam on one side and a fabulously flocked finish on the other. This economical sponge is perfect for applying liquid or powder foundation.  Two sponges are less than $1.50! The non-latex side is great for applying concealers and creamer foundations.  Teardrop shape is malleable and easy manipulate for flawless blending.

    "You Put de Glitter in the Polish, and You Mix 'Em Bot' Up!"

    Spicing up mani & pedis with d├ęcor is an art, and requires skillful technicians. Offering this talent to your clients is a great way to set your salon apart. With so many nail product lines going bolder, brighter and more creative than ever before, it's what’s in demand, and it is essential to adhere to the times in order to drive new and repeat revenue.

    Pure Spa Direct recently added the Color Mixing Tray, which I just think is such a neat nail tool! Say good-bye to complicated layering and hello to pre-mixing. Especially for the Nail Harmony Gelish lovers out there! Since there is such a variety of Gelish colors and glitter polishes in the line, why not be creative and do some experimenting by mixing the polishes you already have to multiple the colors you can offer. Use this crafty Color Mixing Tray as a painting pallet to pre-mix colors before application and VIOLA!- a new color combination with dimension, that’s consistent throughout! …and yes it's true, you may pre-mix Gelish colors prior to application!

    One of my favorite uses of the Color Mixing Tray is for the glitter polishes! Some Gelish polishes have glitter, others do not... now they all can if you'd like! Add bigger chunks of glitter to polishes that have smaller ones, and add them both to polishes that don't have any glitter at all....."And then mix 'em all around!"….

    Purchase the Color Mixing Tray for only $2.45, to create new nail creations and to take your salon to new places it’s never gone before!

    Create a Little Tropical Paradise Right in Your Treatment Room with Banana Masks!

    I love finding interesting and natural ingredients to incorporate into my skin care regimen and to share with my clients, and I have found another to share with you today! Pure Spa Direct recently added a new BANANA mask, and when I saw it, I just HAD to try it!

    Bananas are great for our skin for the same reason they are great for our bodies - they are packed full of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamins A (an antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage and the breakdown of collagen, leading to fuller, more smooth skin), B (helps maintain moisture and suppleness), E (another antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage), and F (omega fatty acids that are emollient, water-binding and antioxidant), as well as minerals such as iron, magnesium, and zinc. And even if you eat the healthiest of diets and swallow vitamins daily, your body only allocates a certain amount of vitamins and minerals to your skin. If you are looking for an extra vitamin boost, it must be applied topically.

    And that is where skin care products like this new Banana Mask comes in! Give your clients' skin a nutrient boost, and turn a run-of-the-mill facial into a tropical adventure! Offer your clients a pina colada as they wait, relax and moisturize their skin during your facial, and they will think they escaped to paradise.

    Check it out today HERE!

    (I know, some of us don't like bananas....but there are TONS of other choices!)

    Math is your friend! Don't Get Bamboozed by Overpriced Small Packages!

    Today, I took a customer service call from someone who just received a new catalog from another spa supply company and she was asking about comparisons of the time tested, celebrity-preferred tanning mists Pure Spa sells and some "new" ones she saw in the catalog.

    Her very first question was about cost... she said they had a few sizes and they seemed like a deal. They had 100 mL., 500 mL. and 1 Liter sizes for $11, $54 and $99 respectively.
    I then did some quick math and told her what those cost in something she could related to... Gallons! She almost fell off her chair.

    Here's the math:
    • 100 ml for $11.00
      = $416.40 per Gallon!
    • 500 ml for $54.00
      = $408.82 per Gallon!
    • 1 Liter for $99.00
      = $374.76 per Gallon!
    The point is, don't be bamboozled by packaging sizes you are not used to in any product. Do the math and be an educated customer. If you don't know the conversions, Google does! For example, Google "convert 1 liter to oz". The result right up top shows: 1 liter = 33.8140227 US fluid ounces. A gallon has 128 oz., so simply divide 128 by 33.81 and you'll see there are 3.79 Liters per gallon. You might recognize that number from 1 gallon bottles of water that say 1 Gallon (3.79 L). Anyway, then just multiply 3.79 by the cost for a Liter and Voila... you may just have cardiac arrest!

    Pure Spa Direct offers 5 top quality tanning mists for professional spray tanning ranging in price from $99 per Gallon to $172 per Gallon (that's just $26.12 - $45.38 per Liter for you Metric fans). Caveat Emptor... Let the Buyer Beware of packaging size vs. price!

    Stated one more way... for tanning solution, the service yield is about 50 tans per gallon.

    Compare the FACTS:
    A $1.98 cost per treatment for the #1 selling Tahitian Tea tanning mist 


    $8.18 treatment cost with other Liter size tanning mists!!!  

    OUCH!!!  Smaller sizes may be tempting, but they cut into your bottom line!!!

    The Need for Speed!… And the 30-minute Spa Treatment!

    As a born and raised New Yorker, I can understand the stereotype that (some, not all) New Yorkers are rude and ill-mannered. In our defense, I believe the major reason for this temperament is because we are ALWAYS rushing. Like the majority of rest of the world, there is always somewhere to be and always work to be done. 24 hours in a day just never seems to be enough time, to get everything needed to be done...well… actually done!

    I bet there are many hardworking professionals out there that can afford and are willing to pay for more spa treatments, if they only had the time. An excellent way to grab this market is by offering and advertising 20-30 min spa treatments--just enough time to get those kinks out of the back during a stressful day, rest the eyes during a lunch break to feel rejuvenated and refreshed to head back to work. Other ideas include offering quick makeovers such as a Lifting & Tightening Mask Treatments before a party or event.

    For some excellent ideas on 30 min spa treatments by one of the most elite spa product lines in the industry, please click below:
    June Jacobs Treatment Kit - 30 Minute Treatments
    -- Pre-prepared treatment menus include everything required for the service including: procedure details, products, timing etc. These treatments can also give guidance or be used a as a reference for other great treatment ideas.

    Transcend Standard Ambient Sound with Tibetian Singing Bowls Music for Your Spa

    When it comes to designing your salon or spa, one of the one of the trickiest tasks is choosing the music. People's tastes are extremely subjective, so satisfying and soothing the majority of your clientele with ambient sound can be a difficult endeavor.

    I think that there is a great deal of confusion in the beauty industry as to what should be used as ambient noise - My personal experiences have run the gamut from dolphin cries, chirping birds, crashing waves and running streams to Baroque-Era Classical. Instead of being relaxing, these sounds are extremely interactive and can be mental or emotional trigger points.

    The spa experience should be an escape and providing the unfamiliar can actually enhance the experience. A absolute favorite of spa professionals and customers alike are the ethereal notes produced by the Singing Bowls of Tibet. Adjectives such as Otherworldly, Soothing, Calming and Refreshing have all been used to describe the music created by singing bowls.

    Two essential soundtracks that you should consider adding to your spa playlist are the Seven Metals CD - Singing Bowls of Tibet and the Xumantra Singing Bowls CD. Both CD's together supply almost 2.5 hours worth calming and peaceful music that will help take your massage, facial and nail services to a transcendent level.

    CLICK HERE to see our entire music collection. Lastly, what type of music or ambient sound do you currently use in your spa?

    Here is an example of the sound that singing bowls produce:

    Estheticians worldwide depend on their mag lamps to provide a clear view of their client's skin. It is, next to the steamer, probably the most-used piece of equipment in a spa. Why not have a top-of-the-line mag lamp that will open your eyes to even more detail on each client's face?

    Pure Spa Direct just found that top-of-the-line lamp! Check out our new Magnus 5-Diopter LED Magnifying Lamp. This 5-Diopter lamp features a lens cover, rolling stand, articulating arm for ease of positioning, and LED lights. Why go LED? Some reasons include:
    • Reduced Power Consumption - lower energy bills!
    • Efficiency - LED bulbs emit more light per watt the
      incadescent bulbs, so you will see more!
    • Cool Light - no more burnt fingertips when trying to adjust your lamp!
    • Long Lifetime - LED bulbs are estimated to last 35,000 - 50,000 hours (in comparason to 1,000 - 2,000 hours for incadescent bulbs) more changing bulbs!
    • Shock Resistance - LEDs are difficult to damage from shock (knocking your lamp over or into a wall), so no more shattered light bulbs!

    If those reasons weren't enough to convince you to go LED, maybe the price will! For the month of March, the Magnus LED Magnifying Lamp with Stand is on sale for 25% off! Scoop yours up today, and "see" what you have been missing!
