Does anyone do spa parties/mobile spas? I am thinking of doing this but would like some input from others.
Hello to ALL who have asked for info about running a mobile spa business (not from a van, but visiting peoples homes or hotels/parties etc). I cannot give all of you my old boss's email address as she will get bombarded with emails and that is not fair. BUT, she did email me with a brief synopsis as to how she found the whole experience. It is a bit negative....but she is a very honest woman who is now very successful running another business (so she 'isn't' a dumb chick with negative attitudes all the way)
Remember this is about California and she cannot speak for other states in the U.S!!!
Here is the copy of her email that she sent to me, so you can all read it: ...............................
Sounds pretty negative, I have to say yes it's alot of work, we had alot of parties that were friends and family first then, their friends and so on...maybe work it out like that first, see how it goes with
a friend and her guests. That my thought, good luck!
yup. just passing on her experience. don't shoot the messenger! :)
would never shoot the messenger ;o) Thanks for your info!
Well, at least we know now. Now to figure out how to work around it...
Better check with the state board -- last time I checked, mobile cosmetology services are illegal in Texas
Unfortunately, all of the services you and your cosmetology licensed colleagues in California offered were illegally performed and grounds for losing your license.
7. I would like to offer spa/bridal parties in the consumers' home; is this legal?
No. Any type of service that is regulated by the Board needs to be performed by a licensee in a licensed establishment. Licensee's providing spa / bridal parties at an unlicensed location may be cited for Business and Profession Code 7317. Practice of Barbering, Cosmetology, or Electrolysis for Compe...which carries a $1,000 fine.
