Keep Those Waxing Clients All Winter Long!

Just because it is cold and our wardrobes consist more of warm jackets, hats, and gloves than bikinis and shorts doesn't mean you should let your clients off the waxing hook!

Keep those waxing appointments coming in year-round! Why should your clients wax year-round (aside from your bottom line, of course!):

  1. The holiday season in particular very often is filled with parties and gatherings - and most of those are inside. So your clients very well may be wearing short skirts - so obviously, their legs will be on display! Those leg waxers will be glad they kept their regular wax appointment when they don that short skirt!
  2. Hot tubs and cold weather are a match made in heaven! Ski weekends or even just a Tuesday night could very well end up in the hot tub - make sure your clients are ready!
  3. Vacations and holidays are often indulged upon during colder months - and many people hit the beach or warmer climates!
Now that you are armed with some examples to provide your clients next time they give you an excuse or try to give you the slip for their next waxing appointment, let's also give them reassurance that you are taking their winter skin into account!

Using a creamy or moisturizing wax is so important during the winter months! A couple of our favorites
for winter are:
Pre- and Post- waxing is always incredibly important, but never so much as in the winter! Preparing the skin to be waxed by cleaning it thoroughly and using a high-quality wax oil will help moisturize the skin and prevent lifting of the skin. Following your wax with a great lotion will keep the skin supple and keep the client from suffering from ingrown hairs. A few of our favorite pre and post-wax products can be found below:

Clients Want Clean Beauty - Pure Spa Can Help!

One of the latest trends in the beauty industry is clean beauty. But what is it exactly? If clients are requesting "clean" products, they may be referring to a myriad of things: maybe they want vegan products, or maybe they want plant-based products or fragrance-free... 

In any case, clients have varied interpretations of the clean beauty trend. There is no one definition that must be used. You must be able to wade through all of your clients' clean beauty requests in order to provide for them as a beauty expert. 

For instance, they might be searching for sulfate-, paraben-, and phthalate-free clean hair products. Some people choose pure skincare with vegan or organic components. How is sustainable, cruelty-free, and non-toxic clean beauty nail polish made? Check! Additionally, some customers might even be more likely to purchase goods with packaging that is environmentally friendly.

Some of the most popular "Clean Beauty" requests we run into:

Vegan Products
Vegan products are products made with no animal-based or animal-derived ingredients. Beeswax is not considered vegan. Glycerin is another common ingredient that would not be considered vegan. Biotin, gelatin, keratin, and silk powder are all vegan-friendly ingredients that are not derived from animals. Squalene and vitamin A from animal sources are not found in vegan hair colors. Guanine, carmine, and oleic acid cannot be sourced from animals in vegan nail polishes. If clients are looking for vegan or vegan-friendly products, these are just some of the many ingredients to avoid!

Plant-Based Products
Since both are made mostly of organic substances derived from plants, plant-based and vegan products are comparable. But these products place a different emphasis. Customers looking for plant-based cosmetics are frequently worried about the use of synthetic chemicals and will occasionally accept trace amounts of substances derived from animals. Shampoos, conditioners, and hair colors made from plants have become increasingly easier to find. These products usually have natural and essential oils, organic teas, vitamin E, fruit extracts, and aloe vera among their ingredients.

Cruelty-Free Products
Products that are cruelty-free do not entail animal testing. The phrase is increasingly being used to refer to a company's business practices, particularly with regard to how it handles its partners, employees, and workers. The term "fair trade" is sometimes used to characterize this idea. Recycled packaging and other environmental advantages may also be advertised by clean skincare companies, clean nail polish manufacturers, and clean ingredient shampoos. Shampoos, conditioners, nail paint, hair dye, and other beauty items that are accurately branded as "cruelty-free" are not manufactured using any animal testing. Customers seeking vegan formulations with no ingredients derived from animals are frequently also seeking cruelty-free hair products, nail paints, and skin care items.

The shared belief that goods and businesses shouldn't harm the environment, animals, or people is what unites all these labels.

So.....What can you offer clients requesting "Clean Beauty" Products?

Manufacturers are aware of this trend, and many of our favorite brands and products already fall into some of these categories! Check out some of the most popular below:

Latex vs Nitrile vs Vinyl Gloves


Disposable gloves are generally classified into three types: latex, vinyl, and nitrile. Each material has unique properties that make it best suited for specific tasks. Next, we'll go over each type of glove and assist you in selecting the best type of glove for your spa and salon and services. Here we go... Latex vs Nitrile vs Vinyl Gloves:

WHAT ARE LATEX GLOVES?
Latex gloves are made of latex, which is a soft white substance found beneath the bark of mature rubber trees.

Latex, when used to make gloves, provides superior levels of infection protection, flexibility, and comfort to the wearer. They are also extremely sensitive to touch.

Latex gloves are used for any procedure or task that necessitates the aforementioned benefits of flexibility, protection, comfort, and sensitivity. The main disadvantage of using latex gloves is that a proportion of the general population has a sensitivity - or even an allergy - to latex. This allergy usually causes itchiness or the appearance of hives on the skin, but some people are extremely allergic and can develop anaphylaxis.

WHAT ARE NITRILE GLOVES?
Nitrile gloves are made of a substance known as "nitrile," which is a synthetic rubber blend of acrylonitrile and butadiene. It is not a naturally occurring substance, unlike latex. Nitrile disposable gloves are not quite as flexible or elastic as latex gloves, and they do not provide quite the same levels of touch sensitivity. They are, however, more long-lasting and protective.

Nitrile gloves are typically free of latex and powder. As a result, they are frequently used for clients who are allergic to latex. They're also frequently used in situations where wearers require the added durability or strength of nitrile.

WHAT ARE VINYL GLOVES?
Vinyl gloves are made of vinyl, also known as polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, which is a synthetic material composed of ethylene and chlorine. Although vinyl gloves are not typically used for people who need to handle hazardous chemicals or work in a biomedical setting, they are an effective option for general-purpose tasks.

Vinyl gloves are extremely stretchy and comfortable, with enhanced tactile capability that allows beauty professionals to feel what they're working on. They can withstand punctures, overstretching, and general wear and tear while protecting against the majority of substances. As a result, vinyl gloves are an excellent choice for beauty professionals, and due to their low cost, they are frequently used as low-cost latex alternatives when users have a latex allergy.

LATEX VS NITRILE VS VINYL GLOVES - WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Gloves made of nitrile or latex differ from one another in terms of sensitivity and durability. There's no denying that latex gloves provide you with a better feel and touch than nitrile gloves in circumstances where you need a lot of touch sensitivity. Conversely, nitrile gloves are a more robust option.

Vinyl is a little less durable glove option because it tends to degrade more quickly than latex or nitrile. However, vinyl gloves continue to be effective for nail techs, and estheticians, and for cleaning and disinfecting the salon. Hair colorists can also wear vinyl gloves, however, to provide constant protection, we advise frequently replacing the gloves.

There is, however, a significant qualification. You must have a non-latex alternative on hand if you need latex-free gloves because someone who will be in contact with the gloves has a latex sensitivity or allergy. Although vinyl gloves tend to be less durable than nitrile ones, you can still get similar protection by changing them frequently. Nitrile and vinyl gloves can both be good solutions. Having nitrile or vinyl choices on hand to accommodate clients with latex allergies is a crucial factor for ensuring a positive client experience in your salon, even though investing in multiple types of gloves may be more expensive.

WHAT ARE THE BEST TYPE OF DISPOSABLE GLOVES FOR NAIL TECHS?
Disposable nitrile gloves are the ideal type of gloves for nail technicians. Nail technicians are better off with the extra durability and safety provided by nitrile gloves because they require a higher level of protection owing to infections and sharp objects. It bears repeating that, in order to lower the danger of infection to subsequent clients, the best nitrile gloves for nail technicians are also completely disposable. Nitrile gloves for nail professionals shouldn't ever be put back on.

WHAT ARE THE BEST TYPE OF DISPOSABLE GLOVES FOR HAIR COLORISTS?
Disposable gloves that are 100% nitrile and latex-free are the best for coloring hair. Nitrile gloves for hairdressers provide additional protection, more than making up for a little reduction in touch sensitivity when compared to latex gloves. You should definitely choose the more protective alternative for your hair coloring gloves as you frequently handle chemicals. Not to mention that doing so will prevent customers who are allergic or sensitive to latex from reacting to the latex in latex gloves.

WHAT ARE THE BEST TYPE OF DISPOSABLE GLOVES FOR MAKEUP ARTISTS?
100% latex gloves are the ideal makeup gloves for makeup artists (with one significant exception, which we'll mention shortly). When compared to nitrile, latex offers greater sensitivity, making it the material of choice for makeup artist gloves everywhere.

The one and most significant, exception to this rule is if either you or your client is known to be sensitive to or allergic to latex. If so, you should switch to a glove made entirely of nitrile and without latex.

Offer Profound Relaxation to Generate Repeat Business and Referrals!

 Offer your clients this proven, patented holistic, and deeply effective remedy for stress and anxiety, and create a high return and steady repeat business without the overhead of a technician to deliver the treatment. A gentle, empowering form of relief from the effects of stress and anxiety for clients, and increased revenue for your spa.

C.L.A.S.:

  • COLOR influences the flow and amount of energy in our bodies. Chromotherapy has become one of the standards in stress reduction and relaxation therapy in spas, medical offices, and private homes.
  • LIGHT is used to treat physical or mental health by balancing the body's energy centers, also known as chakras.
  • AROMATHERAPY is a natural and gentle way to treat physical and mental issues, and can help reduce anxiety, reduce pain, and enhance energy.
  • SOUND can penetrate every cell of the body and activate the body's natural relaxation response, reduce anxiety, and enhance positive emotions.

What is CLAS Wellness?

CLAS Wellness is an affordable, effective, drug-free, integrative wellness system, used by mental health professionals to deepen the healing of stress-related issues. This same CLAS Wellness system is now available to spas. No technician is present during the 25-minute treatment, giving you a higher profit per treatment with low overhead, the ability to offer many treatments per day, and very happy clients who will return again and again for this escape from their everyday stress.

The modern world has people searching for more ways to heal from the mental, emotional, and physical damage attributed to anxiety and stress. Give it to them through CLAS Wellness and increase your revenue while making the world a more relaxed and balanced place. Do Good = Do well.

Any spa, any size, any budget.

CLAS Wellness can be implemented in any spa room to create an immersive experience as a stand-alone treatment, or as an enhancement to other treatments on your menu.

No technician needed during the session = greater profit and ROI for you. Once the client has chosen their preferred color & aroma and is comfortably seated, the program runs without the need for a spa employee to be present. Sessions last for 25 minutes. Multiple bookings per day will bring in substantial revenue without high overhead - a recipe for a great return on investment!

CLAS Wellness is the culmination of decades of research and development by an international team of psychologists, photographers, musicians, graphic designers, and sound engineers. The patented CLAS Wellness program synchronizes the therapeutic benefits of color, light, aromatherapy, and sound into an immersive experience never previously experienced in the spa industry.

CLAS is cloud-based and is displayed on a large HD TV. Programming is designed by psychologists and color/sound specialists for an ultimate healing and therapeutic experience. Each series of sessions is individually selected for the client's condition, preferences, and needs.

The CLAS Wellness session is enhanced by the unique CLAS ceiling-mounted, color-changing light and speakerless sound system. CLAS Wellness was developed in cooperation with UK-based ColorDyne Lighting and Bongiovi Acoustics. All elements are synchronized and fill the room with the colors, visuals, sounds and aromas of the session as it progresses, creating a profound immersive experience.

THE SESSION ELEMENTS:

Each session will take the client through a color bath of a hue that directly corresponds to the desired emotional state and then a hypnotic series of visuals that is aimed at easing tension, reducing anxiety, and instilling calm. Clients will experience a custom-designed series of progressive elements that will culminate in a deep meditative state. Mandalas, nature elements, and spectacular video footage of natural environments fill the screen while aromatherapy oils that enable the client's desired state of mind are diffused into the air.


STEPS TO ABSOLUTE RELAXATION:

COLOR BATH & GUIDED IMAGERY:
The room is bathed in a color chosen by the client prior to the session. The client is led to a zero gravity lounger and settles into the session. Once comfortable, binaural sounds will begin as the aroma starts to flow. A large screen in front of the client will display a mesmerizing series of colors and shapes. The "color bath" will feature hues related to stress reduction, relaxation, and introspection.

COLOR VISUALS:
Mesmerizing, undulating video imagery appears on the large screen to open the client to deeper levels of relaxation. The shapes float across the screen, pulsing in synchronization with the binaural beats and rippling in endless, entrancing shapes. Brilliant colors activate receptors in the brain that correspond to specific emotions and give a visual spectacle to move the client farther and farther away from their stressful thoughts and emotions.

AROMA:
Our sense of smell has a powerful effect on our emotions, memory, and state of calm. The client selects their favorite scent from a long list of natural aromatherapy essential oils that is infused into the room to transport them further into a serene state.

THE ELEMENTS OF NATURE: 
Next, images move into spectacular nature video footage that pulls the viewer into some of the most magnificent natural landscapes on Earth. One of the five elements (fire, water, earth, metal, wood) will be introduced to the visual display, specifically tailored to the session profile. The imagery will feature outdoor elements, including oceans, rivers, waterfalls, fire, metal, forests, etc., and be accompanied by a correlating sound composition.

THE PATHWAY: 
The 25-minute session will end with a pathway experience, bringing all the aspects of the session together in a flowing, relaxing finale. A pathway will emerge and traverse photo-realistic and computer-animated imagery that floats flows and melts into the "road" before reaching a full, floating-in-the-clouds, altered state conclusion.

GUIDED IMAGERY:
Once comfortable and ready to begin the session, binaural sounds will begin as the aroma starts to flow. A large screen in front of the patient will display a mesmerizing series of colors and shapes. The "color bath" will feature hues related to stress reduction, relaxation, and introspection. The shapes float across the screen, pulsing in synchronization with the binaural beats and rippling in endless, entrancing visuals.

MANDALAS:
Following the natural elements and aroma, the session will proceed to the mandalas in order to activate a deeper state of relaxation. The colors and shapes of the mandalas are carefully choreographed to correspond with one of the seven chakra colors and are accompanied by specifically-composed binaural sounds. As the mandalas morph and melt into one another, a kaleidoscopic effect is created on the screen.

FULL IMMERSION: 
The 25-minute session will end with a pathway experience, bringing all the aspects of the session together in a flowing, relaxing finale. A pathway will emerge and traverse photo-realistic computer-animated imagery that floats, flows, and melts into the "road" before reaching a full, floating-in-the-clouds conclusion.

Holiday Retail Spotlight: Retinol Facial Sheet Mask for Anti-Aging

'Tis the Season for Stocking Stuffers! Retail Face Masks are a great way to bring in revenue during the holidays. Many clients look for small, reasonably priced items to include with holiday gifts, so why not provide them with what they are looking for?

My current favorite Retail Face Mask is the RETINOL Professional Facial Sheet Mask / ANTI-AGING with Organic Pine Oil + Wild Yam by Maskology!

The +maskology RETINOL Professional Sheet Mask is a powerful anti-aging formula that uses the power
of Seaweed Kelp Complex and Organic Pine Oil to boost the production of collagen, protecting the skin from damage and resulting in a youthful and healthy complexion.

Details:

  • Anti-aging
  • Conditioning
  • Soothing
  • Protective

Derived from seaweed, Ocean Retinol targets the signs of aging by increasing the levels of collagen in the skin. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize the size of pores, and even the skin tone. It also deeply conditions the skin, smoothing, softening, and balancing the complexion to leave it feeling replenished and renewed.

Organic Pine Oil soothes the skin, targeting pimples, acne, and eczema. The oil reduces inflammation as well as helps with any pain caused by the breakouts. Its protective nature also helps to prevent damage from free radicals, maintaining your skin's health and ensuring it feels calm and relaxed.

The +maskology RETINOL Professional Sheet Mask is 100% plant-based.
